Indian equity markets ended in the red in volatile trade. Sentiment
dampened as trade war worries led to foreign fund outflows and global
cues remained weak. U.S. bond yields once again inverted, strengthening
recession fears. Investors also remained cautious ahead of the expiry of
August futures & options series due on Aug 29, 2019.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.5% and
0.53% to close at 37,451.84 and 11,046.10, respectively. S&P BSE MidCap
and S&P BSE SmallCap lost 0.92% and 0.64%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 953 scrips advancing
and 1,585 scrips declining. A total of 146 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Realty was the major gainer, up
1.86%, followed by S&P BSE IT, up 1.27%, and S&P BSE Teck, up 1.06%.
S&P BSE Metal was the major loser, down 3.40%, followed by S&P BSE
Auto, down 1.91%, and S&P BSE Power, down 1.52%.
The government eased local sourcing norms for single‐brand retail
companies. Under the present norms, a single‐brand retail company
which has more than 51% FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) needs to
source 30% of its goods from within India. Under the new norm this 30%
can be met as an average over the first five years of operation and
thereafter annually towards its Indian operations. In addition, the
government also approved that single brand retail companies can start
selling online before setting up physical stores, subject to the condition
that they set one up within 2 years of starting online sales. The
government also mandated that goods which shall be procured from
India by a single‐brand retailer for that brand will be counted towards
local sourcing, irrespective of whether the goods procured are exported
or sold in India. Further, the government permitted that sourcing of
goods from India for global operations can be done directly by the entity
which is undertaking single‐brand retail or its group companies (resident
or non‐resident), or indirectly by them through a third party.
The government gave approval for 100% FDI in contract manufacturing
under automatic route. The objective of the move is to give a boost to
domestic manufacturing. Furthermore, the government permitted 100%
FDI in coal mining and associated infrastructure under automatic route as
well. The government also announced 26% FDI with government approval
in digital media. Under the present norms, 26% FDI is allowed through
government approval route in the print media sector.
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded YES Bank's long‐term
foreign‐currency issuer rating, because of lower than expected amount of
capital raised and a sharp fall in its stock price, media reports showed.
The global rating agency said this “will challenge its ability to raise
sufficient capital to maintain the rating at its previous level."
Asian equity markets were mixed as trade worries continued to rattle
recession as government bond yields once again touched record lows, a
phenomenon that has preceded previous recessions. Today (as of Aug
29), Asian markets opened lower as investors closely watched the U.S.
Treasury yields for cues. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading lower
0.46% and 0.54%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets ended mostly down as the U.S. yield curve inverted
to the lowest level since 2007. This led to aggravated recession worries.
U.S. markets gained as the energy sector was strengthened by oil prices
edging higher. Gains were limited as the U.S. yield curve inverting further,
adding to fears of an imminent recession.
