Indian equity markets gained, overcoming a dismal start to the session.
The initial dip was due to trade war tensions after China devalued its
currency to combat U.S. tariff threat. Later, investor expectations of a 25
basis points interest rate cut by the Reserve Bank of India at its policy
meet on Aug 7, 2019, lifted the markets. Also, China took steps to
stabilise the yuan after the U.S. labelled the country as a currency
manipulator. Markets took positive cues from the finance minister’s
statement that measures will be taken ‘fairly quickly’ to improve the
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.75% and
0.79% to close at 36,976.85 and 10,948.25, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap gained 1.44% and 1.72%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,633 scrips
advancing and 813 scrips declining. A total of 119 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Capital Goods was the major gainer,
while S&P BSE Energy was the major loser.
According to media reports, the Ministry of Statistics and Programme
Implementation (Mo-SPI) has set up a working group to revise the
factory output index of industrial production (IIP) base to 2017-18 from
2011-12 and see if global practices are followed in its estimation. This
comes amid concerns over the credibility of data in recent past. The IIP
gives a single representative figure to measure the general level of
industrial activity on a monthly basis.
A former RBI governor has said that the government should borrow
only long-term fund from the overseas market. He added that the
amount should not exceed 1.5% of GDP under any condition. The former
governor said he does not have a negative view about overseas
sovereign borrowing but thinks India does not need to borrow from
Micro, small and medium enterprises’ representatives have raised
concerns over high interest rates, delays in loan disbursal and banks
insistence on collateral for working loans. They did this in a meeting with
the finance minister.
A Rajya Sabha member has opposed a change in terms of reference of
the 15th Finance Commission on division of funds between the centre
and state. The member said it was an attempt to occupy more fiscal
After the re-designation as a union territory (UT), the reorganised
Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh will not be eligible for the 15th finance
commission award. As a UT, their finances would be taken care of by
North Block directly. The 15th finance commission’s order is restricted as
per the terms of reference only for the Centre and states, though the
commission will take a final call after examining the re-organisation
notification in detail, media reports showed. UTs were excluded from the
finance commission's mandate after the divisible pool was enlarged in
2000 (11th finance commission), though UTs were part of the mandate
till the 10th finance commission.
Asian equity markets fell after China confirmed that it is suspending
U.S. agricultural product imports in response to U.S. tariffs. The losses
were limited as the yuan stabilized above 7 per dollar, signalling the
People's Bank of China may not let the currency slip further as of now.
Today (as of Aug 7), Asian markets were mixed as investors looked
forward to People’s Bank of China to set its daily midpoint fix for the
Chinese yuan. . Nikkei was trading down 0.42% and Hang Seng was
trading up 0.13% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
U.S. markets recovered after China’s central bank hinted that it plans
to keep its currency at a stronger than expected level. This eased
tensions about China using the yuan as a weapon in the trade war. The
bank’s response could have been a result of U.S. Treasury Department
labelling China a currency manipulator.
European markets fell on escalating trade tensions though concerns
around China devaluing its currency eased after the Chinese central bank
hinted it would keep the currency stable. The bank did this to contest
U.S. labelling it a currency manipulator.
