Indian equity markets managed to gain in an otherwise subdued
session. Investors remained on the sidelines because of global concerns
over U.S.‐China trade relations, U.S. government shutdown and Brexit.
Markets moved up in the end as a major private bank announced the
name of its new managing director and chief executive officer, ending
months of speculation.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.24% and
0.17%, respectively, to close at 36,195.10 and 10,849.80, respectively.
S&P BSE Mid‐Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 0.15% and 0.59%,
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 907 scrips advancing
and 1581 scrips declining. A total of 166 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Realty was the major gainer, up
2.05%, followed by S&P BSE Energy, up 0.94%, and S&P BSE Information
Technology, up 0.76%. S&P BSE Teck gained 0.49% and S&P BSE Fast
Moving Consumer Goods gained 0.17%. S&P BSE Telecom was the major
loser, down 1.97%, followed by S&P BSE Industrials and S&P BSE Auto,
down 0.95% and 0.85%, respectively.
The government could double the minimum pension under the
Employees’ Pension Scheme to Rs. 2,000 per month, according to media
news. The move could benefit more than 4 million workers. People under
the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) will automatically
become subscribers to the pension scheme. A high‐level labour
committee has proposed to raise the pension and is being “actively”
considered by the finance ministry, the report said. The government
spends around Rs. 9,000 crore annually on pensions under the Employee
Pension Scheme. This figure will go up to Rs. 12,000 crore if the proposal
is accepted.
The cabinet has approved setting up of the national bench of the
appellate tribunal (AT) for disputes under the goods and services tax
(GST). The body (GSTAT) will be the first common forum of dispute
resolution between the Centre and states. Also, it will be an adjudication
authority on distinct orders passed by different state‐level appellate
authorities on the same issue of law. GSTAT bench will be located in Delhi
and presided by the president along with two technical member one
each from the Centre and state.
An interim finance minister has been appointed for second time in the
absence of the incumbent finance minister. The interim minister will
present the upcoming Budget 2019‐20. This has happened as the
incumbent finance minister is said to be in the U.S. for the treatment of
an illness.
India has started bilateral talks on the modalities of tariff concessions
with China. India is under pressure to reduce duties on at least 80% of its
imports from China under a mega trade agreement Regional
Comprehensive Economic Partnership that covers 16 countries. The two‐
day meeting is being held in China and will be preceded by a meeting of
negotiators of the 16 participating countries in Jakarta, Indonesia, later in
the week. In the that meeting all the member countries of RCEP will work
out timelines aimed at concluding the agreement in 2019. India’s major
concern is China as it had a trade deficit of $63 billion in 2017‐18.
Asian equity markets were mostly high as U.S. behemoths posting
upbeat earnings gave investors some confidence in the health of the
economy. But the gains were limited on trade tensions and U.S.
government shutdown. Chinese Premier will visit the U.S. next week for
the next round of trade talks. Today (as of Jan 25), Asian markets opened
higher despite uncertainties about U.S.‐China trade negotiations. Both
Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading higher 0.71% and 0.93%, respectively
(as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed on a mixed note as
market participants making cautious moves amid lingering concerns
about U.S.‐China trade disputes. Market participants were also tracking
news on Brexit and the partial U.S. government shutdown for direction.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on a mixed note on concerns
over the U.S. China trade talks. The U.S. Commerce Secretary said that
the trade deal between U.S. and China is far away, which should not be
too surprising considering lots of issues.
