After gaining for six consecutive days, Indian equity markets fell as
investors remained cautious ahead of the outcome of the Monetary
Policy Committee’s fifth monetary policy review meeting on Dec 5, 2018.
Weakness in rupee and surge in oil prices ahead of the impending
meeting in Vienna where OPEC is expected to discuss a production cut
added to the losses.
Further, investors were cautious ahead of the results of crucial
assembly election in five states due on Dec 11, 2018. Weakness in global
markets amid uncertainty whether China and the U.S. will be able to
permanently resolve trade differences dampened investor sentiment.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.29% and
0.13% to close at 36,134.31 and 10,869.50, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-

declining and 1,156 scrips advancing. A total of 144 scrips remained
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has given approval to
the Metropolitan Stock Exchange (MSE) for the launch of weekly options
on U.S. DollarIndian Rupee (USD-INR) and two new currency products.
A weekly hedging product Currency Options on USD-INR is being
introduced by the exchange that will enable participants to reduce their
cost of hedging.
The National Stock Exchange announced that it has introduced futures
on overnight call rate (Mumbai Inter-Bank Offer Rate or MIBOR). This is
expected to provide participants an opportunity to manage risk
exposures. MIBOR is the interest rate at which banks borrow from
another for short term purposes.
SEBI has been recommended by a high-level panel to permit direct
listing of Indian companies on overseas bourses and of foreign firms on
Indian exchanges. Currently, Indian companies can list their shares
through depository receipts abroad. Meanwhile, foreign companies have
to go through the Indian Depository Receipt route for listing of equities.
SEBI has made the settlement rules more attractive to help fast-track
cases. The new norms will be effective from Jan 1, 2019. The market
regulator has included confidentiality and lenient terms for approvers,
however, not for settling the cases of defaulters and fugitive economic
offenders. SEBI stated that it will not settle proceeding in case the
alleged default has widely impacted the market and has resulted in
losses to a large number of investors.
SEBI has issued stricter cybersecurity framework for stock brokers and
depository participants. The new norms that will be effective from Apr
2019 come on the wake of concerns over possible data breaches. With
the new norms, the stock brokers and depository participants would be
required to define the responsibilities of individuals which will include
outsourced staff that have privileged access to the networks.

Asian equity markets were mostly lower as investors took stock of the
announcement by U.S. and China of a 90-day trade truce wherein the
two will cooperate with each other. Investors became sceptical of the
chances of U.S. and China ironing out their differences in the 90-day
time. Today (as of Dec 05), Asian markets opened lower following an
overnight plunge on Wall Street as investors worried about a potential
economic slowdown. Both Nikkei and Hangseng were trading down
1.07% and 1.89%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed lower following profit
taking by investors and lingering worries around U.S.-China trade war.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed lower after the yield on two-
year notes rose above the yield on five-year notes, which was perceived

investors and lingering worries around U.S.-China trade further added to
the losses.
