Indian equity markets started the week on a positive note as global
cues helped the indices to gain. U.S. and China decided on a 90-day truce
wherein U.S. won’t increase tariffs on Chinese goods worth $200 billion
from 10% to 25% and China will substantially increase the quantum of
exports from U.S. The gains were limited as sentiment was soured by
weak Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figures, fiscal deficit crossing budget
estimates and increase in crude oil prices. GDP for the second quarter of
FY19 came in at 7.1% compared with 8.2% in the previous quarter.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.13% and
0.06% to close at 36,241.00 and 10,883.75, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap increased 0.46% each.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1291 scrips declining
and 1288 scrips advancing. A total of 200 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Utilities was the major gainer, up
2.66%, followed by S&P BSE Realty and S&P BSE Power, up 2.6% and
2.47%, respectively. S&P BSE Metal and S&P BSE Telecom gained 2.14%
and 1.15%, respectively.
The Nikkei India Services Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) increased
for the third straight month in Nov 2018 to 54.0 from 53.1 in Oct 2018. A
reading of over 50 indicates expansion and otherwise contraction. The
growth reflects strengthening manufacturing operating conditions since
healthy new order inflows made companies increase production
compared with Oct. the month saw sustained job creation and improved
Government data showed that India’s fiscal deficit for Apr-Oct 2018
came in at Rs. 6.48 lakh crore, or 103.9% of the budgeted target for FY19
against 96.1% in the year-ago period. Net tax receipts were Rs. 6.61 lakh
crore or 44.7% of the budget estimate for FY19 compared with 51.6% in
the corresponding period of the previous year. The government’s total
expenditure for the period from Apr to Oct of 2018 stood at Rs. 14.56
lakh crore or 59.6% of the budget estimate for FY19 compared with
60.2% in the corresponding period of the previous year.
According to the revenue secretary, an analysis is required on whether
to increase excise duty on petroleum products following fall in crude
prices. The government had reduced excise duty by Rs. 1.50 per litre on
both petrol and diesel in Oct 2018 and asked oil marketing companies to
cut the retail prices by Re 1 each.
Hindustan Unilever Ltd has announced it will merge with GSK’s
healthcare business in India. The total value of the business is being seen
at Rs. 31,700 crore. The merger includes all the operations within GSK
Consumer Healthcare India Ltd. It also includes a consignment selling
contract to distribute GSK Consumer’s over-the-counter and oral health
products in India.
The Gujarat government has allowed tariff hikes by power projects of
companies such as Adani Power Ltd, Tata Power Co. Ltd and Essar Power
Ltd, according to media reports.
Asian equity markets gained across the board as U.S. and China agreed
on a 90-day truce after their meeting at the G20 summit. This means U.S.
will delay the increase of tariffs from 10% to 25% on $200 billion worth
of Chinese imports and China on its part will purchase more of
agricultural, energy, industrial and other products from the U.S. China
buying substantially more from U.S. will help narrow the trade gap
between the two countries. Today (as of Dec 4), Asian markets opened
lower amid uncertainty about future of U.S.-China trade relations as
questions remain about actual details of the trade agreement. Nikkei and
Hangseng fell 0.51% and 0.25%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed higher following
optimism over reports that U.S and Chinese President have agreed to a
90-day truce in the escalating trade war.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed higher after the U.S. and
