Indian equity markets ended in the red, breaking their five‐day gaining
streak following renewed concerns over global economic slowdown. The
IMF has revised its growth projection to 3.5% rate worldwide for 2019
and 3.6% for 2020, which is a cut of 0.2 and 0.1 percentage points,
respectively, from its forecasts in Oct 2018. The losses were limited by a
stronger rupee and decline in crude oil prices.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.37% and
0.36%, respectively, to close at 36,444.64 and 10,922.75, respectively.
S&P BSE Mid‐Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 0.09% and 0.49%,
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 915 scrips advancing
and 1653 scrips declining. A total of 166 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Healthcare was the major gainer, up
1.17%, followed by S&P BSE Realty and S&P BSE Consumer Durables, up
0.91% and 0.9%, respectively. S&P BSE Oil & Gas and S&P BSE Energy
gained 0.41% and 0.08%, respectively. S&P BSE Metal was the major
loser, down 2.31%.
According to a report, 12 of the 17 states that the Reserve Bank of India
(RBI) categorises as 'non‐special' have grown faster than the national
economic growth rate of 6.7% in fiscal 2018. However, these states have
not excelled in job creation. In most of the states, growth was low in
'employment‐intensive' sectors such as manufacturing, construction and
trade, and hotels transport and communication services compared with
the national level.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has proposed to relax rules for entry of
new players in the retail payment systems. RBI is doing this to give a
boost to innovation and competition. RBI grants authorisation to non‐
banks for setting up and operating payment systems. By the end of 2018,
there were 89 authorised non‐bank Payment System Operators (PSOs).
The committee on special economic zones (SEZ) has suggested that
certain sectors such as electronics are showing high domestic demand
and should have a plan for import substitution. For SEZs focussed on
services including information technology, medical tourism and financial
services, the panel said the government may not have to completely
change the existing policies but design measures to make them more
attractive for investors.
Exporters could get incentives based on criteria such as research and
development, product‐specific clusters and production pattern under a
five‐year foreign trade policy (FTP). The FTP will be released later in 2019,
according to media reports. The commerce ministry is working on
recasting the existing export incentive schemes in line with the global
trade rules of the World Trade Organisation.
Asian equity markets declined after the International Monetary Fund
(IMF) revised its growth forecast for the global economy. The IMF’s
revised projection is 3.5% growth rate worldwide for 2019 and 3.6% for
2020, which is a cut of 0.2 and 0.1 percentage points, respectively, from
its forecasts in Oct 2018. The main reasons behind the downgrade are the
trade tensions, Brexit uncertainties and slowing China growth. Today (as
of Jan 23), Asian markets opened lower amid concerns over the state of
ongoing U.S.‐China trade negotiations. While Nikkei and Hang Seng were
trading lower 0.53% and 0.46%, respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets fell after the International
Monetary Fund (IMF) decreased its forecast for global growth in 2019
that renewed concerns about global economy. Lower commodity prices
also contributed to the weakness.
As per the last close, U.S markets declined after the IMF decreased its
forecast for global growth in 2019, which renewed fears of the global
economy slowing down. U.S. existing homes sales fell steeper than
forecast in Dec 2018, which added to the economic worries.
