Indian equity markets inched up and exited the week with gains on all
days. The gains were minimal since a strong rupee and weak oil prices
were offset by investors awaiting GDP figures, due to be released after
market hours, and the outcome of U.S.-China meeting at the G20 summit
over the weekend.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.07% and
0.17% to close at 36,194.30 and 10,876.75, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap gained 0.56%, while S&P BSE Small Cap increased 0.52%.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,331 scrips
declining and 1,281 scrips advancing. A total of 148 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Realty was the major gainer, up
1.96%, followed by S&P BSE Healthcare, up 1.78%, and S&P BSE
Information Technology, up 1.03%. S&P BSE Consumer Discretionary
Goods & Services and S&P BSE Auto gained 0.83% and 0.73%,
respectively. S&P BSE Telecom was the major loser, down 1.51%,
followed by S&P BSE Oil & Gas and S&P BSE Energy, down 0.96% and
0.64%, respectively.
The growth of the Indian economy slowed significantly in the second
quarter of FY19 after peaking in the first quarter. The slowdown came as
consumption demand moderated and the services sector remained
subdued to some extent. GDP slowed to 7.1% in Q2FY19 from 8.2% in
Q1FY19. However, the growth rate was higher compared with 6.3%
registered in the same period of the previous year (Q2FY18). In gross
value-added terms also, the growth of the Indian economy moderated to
6.9% in Q2FY19 from 8.0% in Q1FY19. Rate of private consumption
expenditure slowed to 7.0% in Q2FY19 from 8.6% in Q1FY19. On the
positive front, investment continued to show strength as government
expenditure grew 12.7% in Q2FY19 from 7.6% in Q1FY19.
The growth of index of eight core industries came in at 4.8% in Oct
2018 as against 4.3% in Sep 2018. Cement witnessed the maximum
growth of 18.4%, followed by electricity and coal sector that surged
11.4% and 10.6%, respectively. Fertilizer sector witnessed the maximum
decline of 11.5% and crude oil and natural gas went down 5.0% and
0.9%, respectively. This is the 11th consecutive fall for crude oil.
According to a global survey, 42% of Indian small and medium
enterprises (SMEs) find access to finance to grow business difficult
compared with a third of their global peers. Because of this, SMEs rely on
traditional bank loans to run their businesses. The survey says 82% of all
SMEs plan to use bank loans, but with rising borrowing costs, they are
evaluating their finance options. The report said 69% of the fast-growing
SMEs plan to tap other sources of funding such as public equity.
Asian equity markets were mixed as minutes of U.S. Federal Reserve’s
early-Nov 2018 meeting minutes showed that the members more or less
agree on a Dec 2018 rate-hike. Investors also looked forward to the G20
summit scheduled in Argentina during the weekend, wherein U.S. and
China are expected to sit across the table and discuss trade issues. Today
(as of Dec 3), Asian markets opened higher as U.S and Chinese President
agreed to temporary pause on escalating the ongoing trade war. Nikkei
and Hangseng grew 1.25% and 2.11%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed almost lower as
investors remained cautious ahead of the G20 summit. Decline in auto
and basic resources stocks weighed on the indices.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed almost higher amid optimism
ahead of a highly anticipated meeting between the U.S. President and
Chinese President. Gains came on renewed bets that the U.S. and China
could strike a deal on trade.
