Indian equity markets fell after official data showed that wholesale
price index-based inflation increased to 5.77% in Jun 2018 as prices of
vegetables and fuel rose. A report by a global investment bank and
financial service provider indicated top risks to the domestic equities like
rise in global crude oil prices, upcoming election cycle with its own set of
uncertainties, an upward pressure on inflation that may prompt the
Monetary Policy Committee to go for interest rate hikes further.
Buying interest found some support, after International Monetary
Fund’s latest World Economic Outlook affirmed that India will be the
fastest growing nation among the major economies.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.60% and
0.74% to close at 36323.77 and 10936.85, respectively. S&P BSE Mid cap
and S&P BSE Small cap slipped 2.45% and 2.51%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 2113 scrips declining
and 496 scrips advancing. A total of 168 scrips remained unchanged.
Government data showed that India’s Wholesale Price Index-based
inflation (WPI) rose to 5.77% in Jun 2018 as prices of vegetables and fuel
items increased. Wholesale price inflation was at 4.43% in May 2018 and
at 0.90% in Jun 2017. Inflation in food articles came in at 1.80% in Jun
against 1.60% in May. Inflation in vegetables increased to 8.12% in Jun
from 2.51% in May. ‘Fuel and power' inflation went up to 16.18% in Jun
from 11.22% in May because of rising global crude oil prices. The WPI
Food Index also increased to 1.56% in Jun 2018 from 1.12% in May 2018.
India’s GDP growth forecast for 2019 has been cut by the International
Monetary Fund (IMF) by 10 basis points to 7.3%. For 2020, the bank has
lowered the forecast by 30 basis points to 7.5%. IMF revised the forecast
as it expects the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to tighten the country’s
monetary policy at a faster pace. Also, rising global crude oil prices and
fears of a trade war between China and U.S. are factors that could affect
India’s GDP negatively.
According to the finance ministry, India has become the regional head
of the Asia Pacific region of the World Customs Organisation (WCO) for a
period of two years till Jun 2020. WCO represents 182 customs
administrations across the globe and collectively processes
approximately 98% of world trade.
Infosys’ consolidated net profit for the quarter ended Jun 2018
increased 3.7% to Rs. 3,612 crore compared with Rs. 3,483 crore in the
year-ago period. Revenues in the period rose to Rs. 19,128 crore, a 12%
increase against Rs. 17,078 crore in the comparable period of the
previous fiscal.
Hindustan Unilever net profit increased 19.2% to Rs. 1,529 crore for
the quarter ended Jun 2018 against Rs. 1,283 crore registered in the
year-ago period. Revenue in the period went up 11.2% to Rs 9,487 crore.
Asian markets mostly moved down ahead of the Federal Reserve
Chairman’s semi-annual congressional testimony which will provide
further cues on Fed’s decision. Mixed economic data from China, could
not provide much support to the sentiments as Chinese GDP growth
slowed to 6.7% in the second quarter. Today (as of July 17), Asian
markets opened on subdued note due to decline in mining and oil stocks.
Investors remained focus towards corporate earnings. Nikkei grew 0.41%
and Hanseng fell 0.93% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed almost lower as mining
stocks remained under pressure due to slowdown in China's second
quarter GDP data. Meanwhile, investors remained focused on
developments from the meeting between U.S. and Russian President.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on a mixed note. Gains in
financial stocks after a U.S. financial major posted strong quarterly
results, boosted the indices. Meanwhile, investors preferred to remain
on the sidelines ahead of release of quarterly financial results from a
number of U.S majors this week.
