After falling for three consecutive days, India equity markets ended the
last trading session of the week on a positive note. Decline in crude oil
prices as OPEC ended talks in Vienna without a deal on oil production
cuts boosted the indices. Gains in banking stocks following reports that
an American business investor is in discussions to buy 10% stake in an
Indian private sector bank supported buying interest. Strength in rupee
added to the gains.
Further, a rebound in the global stocks amid expectations that U.S.
Federal Reserve may ease its faster pace of interest rate hikes in 2019,
supported the benchmark indices. Meanwhile, investors awaited exit poll
results of five state elections due after market hours on Dec 7, 2018.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 grew 1.02% and
0.87% to close at 35,673.25 and 10,693.70, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap grew 0.23%, however, S&P BSE Small Cap fell 0.27%.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,499 scrips
declining and 1,079 scrips advancing. A total of 146 scrips remained
The Union cabinet has given approval for an export policy for
agriculture, thereby imposing no restrictions on export of all organic and
processed products. The move is expected to help the government’s
efforts to double farmers’ income by 2022. However, policy for farm
goods such as onions will be reviewed from time to time. The commerce
and industry minister stated that the policy will promote organic, ethnic
and indigenous products.
According to media reports, an important sub-committee of the
Reserve Bank of India (RBI) did not discuss easing lending curbs facing 11
state-run banks. As per the reports, RBI’s board for financial supervision
(BFS) only discussed the banks' quarterly results for Sep 2018.
According to media reports, some 30-35 microfinance companies have
come together to create a common loan pool of approximately Rs. 650
crore. The loan pool will be securitised and sold to banks in order to raise
funds at a time when the sector is facing a credit squeeze. Securitisation
of the first tranche of Rs. 400 crore is likely to be carried out in a week.
Meanwhile, immediately after the first tranche, the second instalment of
approximately Rs. 100 crore will take place.
30 officials and custodians of some of the large offshore funds have
requested to the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) to
eradicate the rule as per which most offshore funds have to be broad-
based that needs having at least 20 investors with each holding not more
than 49%. Also, they have raised concern about the practice where
copies of passport, social security numbers, and other national
identification documents of senior management officials of many foreign
funds are shared with brokers and intermediaries.
According to media reports, the cabinet has increased the
government’s contribution to National Pension Scheme (NPS) to 14% of
basic salary from current contribution of 10%. However, minimum
contribution remains at 10% for the employees. Also, the cabinet has
approved tax incentives under 80C of the Income Tax Act for employees'
contribution to the extent of 10%.
Asian markets witnessed a mixed trend with investors tracking the
development over U.S. China trade relation. Meanwhile, market
participants took positive cues from widespread speculation over slower
tempo of interest rate hikes by U.S. Fed compared with previously
expected. Today (as of Dec 10), Asian markets opened lower following
weaker than expected China’s trade data for Nov 2018 which indicated
slower global and domestic demand. Nikkei and Hangseng fell 1.84% and
1.15%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets managed to close in gains amid
rebound in crude oil prices and bargain hunting. However, decline in U.S.
markets on weaker-than-expected jobs report for Nov 2018 soured
investor sentiment. Further, investors remained focused on
developments from the OPEC meeting in Vienna.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed lower following weaker-than-
expected jobs report for Nov 2018. Lingering skepticism about trade
agreement between U.S. and China also continued to weigh on the
