Indian equity markets fell steeply mainly because of a global selloff.
Global markets have been under pressure from the past three sessions on
the back of concerns of global trade war, Hong Kong protests and a crash
in Argentina's peso currency. All this mayhem has led investors to the
shelter of safe-haven assets such as bonds, gold, and the Japanese yen.
Also, the rupee weakened to near six-month low against the U.S. dollar.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 1.66% and
1.65% to close at 36,958.16 and 10,925.85, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 2.25% and 1.42%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 861 scrips advancing
and 1652 scrips declining. A total of 148 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, only two sectors gained. S&P BSE Energy was
the major gainer, up 5.98%, followed by S&P BSE Oil & Gas, up 1.05%.
S&P BSE Telecom was the major loser, down 4.34%, followed by S&P BSE
Auto and S&P BSE Capital Goods, down 3.88% and 3.2%, respectively.
S&P BSE Finance and S&P BSE Teck lost 3.01% and 2.76%, respectively.
Asian equity markets fell on the back of a slew of factors such as U.S.-
China trade war worries, escalating tensions in Hong Kong and Argentine
crisis as its President lost in primary elections. Investors took shelter of
safe haven assets like the yen, gold and bonds. Today (as of Aug 14),
Asian markets traded higher as U.S. announced it would delay putting
tariffs on some Chinese goods. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading
up 0.84% and 1.28%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets warded off initial weakness to end the session in the
green after the U.S. Trade Representative office said certain Chinese
items would be removed from a list of goods set to attract a new 10%
levy because of health, safety, national security and other factors.
U.S. markets gained after the country decided to delay tariffs on certain
Chinese imports and completely removed some items from the tariff list.
This rekindled hopes that the two countries could reach a long-term
