Indian equity markets lost because of growth concerns, even though
the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) cut interest rates by a more than expected
35 basis points. The central bank lowering GDP growth forecast for FY20
to below 7% hit sentiment.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.77% and
0.85% to close at 36,690.50 and 10,855.50, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 0.44% and 0.11%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1114 scrips
advancing and 1383 scrips declining. A total of 144 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Capital Goods was the major gainer,
up 2.12%, followed by S&P BSE Telecom and S&P BSE Realty, which
gained 1.94% and 1.78%, respectively. S&P BSE Industrials and S&P BSE
Basic Materials gained 1.7% and 1.69%, respectively. S&P BSE Energy was
the major loser, down 0.68%, followed by S&P BSE IT and S&P BSE Teck,
down 0.2% and 0.15%, respectively. S&P BSE Oil & Gas lost 0.02%.
The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) lowered key policy repo rate by
35 bps from 5.75% to a more than nine-year low of 5.40% in its third bi-
monthly monetary policy review and decided to maintain its
accommodative stance on the monetary policy. This is the fourth
consecutive rate cut by the MPC in 2019 till date and the third in this
fiscal till Aug 2019. All members of the MPC unanimously voted for
reducing the key policy repo rate and maintaining the accommodative
stance of monetary policy. However, four members of the committee
advocated for a 35 bps rate cut while two members advocated for a 25
bps rate cut.
MPC noted that private consumption which forms the basis of
aggregate demand and investment activity continued to remain subdued.
Also, the domestic economic activity has weakened and there are
concerns that it may lose momentum further on the back of rising trade
tensions and global economic slowdown. On the inflation front, MPC
expects retail inflation to remain below its medium-term target of 4% for
the next twelve months. Thus, the MPC decided to lower the key policy
repo rate to boost the growth prospects of the Indian economy as a
subdued inflation outlook gave MPC enough headroom to ease the
monetary policy.

ended Jun 30, 2019 compared with Rs. 445.61 crore in the year-ago

vehicle sales. The company had posted a consolidated profit after tax of
Rs. 1,884.66 crore in the year-ago period.
Lupin’s consolidated net profit rose 49.46% to Rs. 303.05 crore for the
quarter ended Jun 30, 2019, on account of robust sales in India and
overseas. The company had posted a net profit of Rs. 202.76 crore in the
year-ago period.
Asian equity markets were mixed as investors turned cautious after
China's People's Bank set the yuan's official daily midpoint reference to a
slightly weaker point than expected. Today (as of Aug 8), Asian markets
were mixed as investors awaited the release of China’s trade data. Both
Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading up 0.62% and 1.16%, respectively (as
at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets gained but the rise was restricted by trade war
concerns and falling bond yields. The fall in yields led to concerns over a
global economic slowdown.
U.S. markets recovered a steep fall in the session to end flat as Chinese
yuan’s fall against the U.S. dollar was restricted. Also, bond yields
rebounded from a sharp decline, easing concerns over a slowdown in
economic growth.
