Indian equity markets fell for the third consecutive day due to
weakness in global markets that weighed on energy, auto and realty
stocks. Global markets remained under pressure after Canadian

of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Weakness in rupee added
to the woes.

1.69% to close at 35,312.13 and 10,601.15, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap fell 1.54% and 1.36%, respectively.

framework for warehouse companies and other allied service providers
engaged in non-agricultural goods. The market regulator is planning to
take into consideration an extensive of standards and norms for
compliance by clearing corporations (CC) accredited storage agencies for
storage of physically delivered non-agricultural goods. Currently, the
stock exchanges or clearing corporations have prescribed certain storage
norms, however, there is no uniformity. The move is expected to help
improve the delivery and settlement mechanism.
According to major domestic rating agency, the non-bank lenders'
asset growth will be lowered by halve to approximately 10% in the
2HFY19 due to difficulties in getting funding. The agency stated that
asset quality of retail loans is resilient, however, non-retail book of the
non-banking finance companies’ has to be monitored for potential
A major global credit rating agency has downwardly revised forecast
for India’s gross domestic product to 7.2% for FY19 as against previous
expectation of growth of 7.8%. The revision reflects higher financing cost

and FY21.

Asian equity markets declined after doubts arose over U.S. China
strategy. The U.S. administration arrested a high-placed official of a major
Chinese technology company over alleged violation of U.S. sanctions on
Iran. Investors were doubting the effectiveness of the 90-day trade truce
between the two countries and the recent development added fuel to
fire. Today (as of Dec 7), Asian markets opened higher on reports that
U.S. Fed could increase interest rates at a slower pace than previously
expected. Nikkei and Hangseng grew 0.27% and 0.36%, respectively (as at
8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed lower due to concerns
over trade tensions between the U.S. and China following arrest of the
chief financial officer of a Chinese tech giant.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on a mixed note. Skepticism
about potential for a long-term trade agreement between U.S. and China
after the arrest of a top executive at Chinese tech giant weighed on the
indices. However, reports that U.S. Fed could hike interest rates at a
slower pace than previously expected likely restricted the losses.
