Indian equity markets gave up early gains to end flat. The Reserve Bank
of India (RBI) reduced interest rates and said inflation could stay within
its target range and also changed its monetary policy stance to 'neutral'
from the earlier 'calibrated tightening'. This could mean further softening
of rates.

0.06%, to close at 36,971.09 and 11,069.40, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-

The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) in its sixth bi-monthly monetary
policy review for FY19 lowered the key policy repo rate by 25 basis points
after keeping it unchanged in Oct 2018 and Dec 2018. It had increased
the same in by 25 bps each in Jun 2018 and Aug 2018. This marked to be
the first MPC meeting under the newly appointed governor of the
Reserve Bank of India. Out of six committee members four voted in
favour of the decision. The move comes as the headline inflation is
expected to remain soft in the near term amid current low level of
inflation and the soft food inflation outlook. Meanwhile, the MPC
changed the stance to neutral from calibrated tightening, the decision
for which was unanimous. MPC had changed the stance to calibrated
tightening in fourth bi-monthly monetary policy review. Now, the key
policy repo rate is 6.25% as against previous rate of 6.50%.
Consequently, the reverse repo rate is now at 6.00% and the marginal
standing facility rate and the Bank Rate is now 6.50%.
MPC retained its expectation for gross domestic product (GDP) growth
at 7.4% for FY19. It expects GDP growth to be 7.5% in the first half of
FY20. GDP growth for FY20 is projected at 7.4% (7.2%-7.4% in first half,
and 7.5% in third quarter). According to MPC, strong aggregate bank
credit and overall financial flows to the commercial sector is expected to
influence the growth outlook. Further, slowing global demand is
expected to act as headwinds.
Tata Motors consolidated loss came in at Rs. 26,961 crore for the
quarter ended Dec 2018 as against a profit of Rs. 1,214.60 crore in the

According to media reports, hospitality firm OYO witnessed a more
than four fold jump in its hotel sales globally to $1.8 billion in the
calendar year 2018 compared to $0.4 billion for 2017.
Asian equity markets were mixed as investors looked forward to
progress in U.S.-China trade talks. This made markets overlook U.S.
President's State of the Union address wherein he spoke tough words on
immigration. Today (as of Feb 8), Asian markets opened lower amid fresh
U.S and China trade concerns following reports that a meeting between
U.S and Chinese President is highly unlikely in the coming weeks. Nikkei
and Hangseng fell 1.31% and 1.22%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed on a lower note on
growth worries after the European Union lowered its growth outlook for
eurozone for 2019 and 2020. A lower projection by Bank of England for
U.K. for 2019 and 2020 and Germany’s weak industrial production for Dec
also dampened investor sentiment.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on a lower note following
media reports that a trade meeting between U.S and Chinese President
would not happen before the deadline of Mar 2019. Further, projection
of slowdown of eurozone and U.K growth for 2019 and 2020, weighed on
the market sentiment.
