Indian equity markets saw volatile trade wherein indices touched record
highs during the session but still ended in the red. Investors became

Mexican imports to curb illegal immigration form the country.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.30% and
0.19%, respectively, to close at 39,714.20 and 11,922.80, respectively. S&P
BSE Mid-Cap gained 0.23%, while S&P BSE Small Cap lost 0.65%.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 996 scrips advancing
and 1592 scrips declining. A total of 149 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Information Technology was the
major gainer, up 1.19%, followed by S&P BSE Teck and S&P BSE Oil & Gas,
up 1.07% and 0.88%, respectively. S&P BSE Power was the major loser,
down 1.26%, followed by S&P BSE Metal and S&P BSE Fast Moving

Government data showed that the growth of the gross domestic product
(GDP) of India’s economy slowed to 5.8% in the quarter ended Mar 2019
from 6.6% in the previous quarter and 8.1% in the same period of the
previous year. This was the slowest rate since the quarter ended Mar
2014. The growth of the economy thus slowed down from a growth rate
of 8.0% in Q1FY19 to 7.0% in Q2FY19 and 6.6% in Q3FY19. For the entire
fiscal, India’s GDP grew 6.8%, slower than the growth of 7.2% in the
previous fiscal which was also the slowest growth rate in the last five
years. The gross value added (GVA), which is GDP less taxes, grew 5.7% in
Q4FY19 from 6.3% in the previous quarter and 7.9% in the same period of
the previous year.
Government data showed that the Indian government was able to meet
its interim budget fiscal deficit target of 3.4% for FY19 as India’s fiscal
deficit stood at 3.39% of GDP. This was made possible due to increase in
non-tax revenue and lower expenditure. In absolute terms, non-Tax
revenue for FY19 stood at Rs 2.46 lakh crore, a tad higher than Rs. 2.45
lakh crore in the revised estimates of budget. Total expenditure for FY19
stood at Rs. 23.11 lakh crore, lower than Rs. 24.57 lakh crore in the revised
estimates of budget. The revenue deficit stood at 2.34 % of GDP while the
effective revenue deficit was 1.33% of GDP. India’s fiscal deficit for FY19
stood at Rs. 6.45 lakh crore as against Rs. 6.34 lakh crore in the revised
estimates of budget.
Government data showed that the growth in the index of eight core
industries slowed to 2.6% in Apr-19 from 4.9% in the previous month and
4.7% in the same period of the previous year. The slowdown came as
crude oil sector, natural gas sector and fertilizers sector witnessed a
contraction of 6.9%, 0.8% and 4.4% respectively. The electricity sector
witnessed a maximum growth of 5.8% followed by refinery products and
coal which grew 5.8% and 2.8% respectively. The steel sector and the
cement sector witnessed a growth of 1.5% and 0.8% respectively.
Asian equity markets were mostly lower because of escalating trade
tensions and weak Chinese data. The U.S. President announced new tariffs
on all goods coming from Mexico to curb illegal immigration to the U.S. The
President said 5% increase in tariffs will begin from Jun 10, and the rate
could slowly rise until the situation is resolved. Today (as of June 03), Asian
markets opened on a lower note following declines in Wall Street in the
last session and increasing concerns over global trade. Nikkei and
Hangseng were trading down 1.03% and 0.32%, respectively (as at 8.a.m.
As per the last close, European markets closed lower after U.S. President
announced plans to impose 5% tariff on all Mexican imports from Jun 10,
2019, thereby triggering worries of global recession.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed lower after U.S. President
revealed plans to use tariffs on Mexico beginning Jun 10, 2019. The
announcement comes to compel Mexico to make efforts to stop the flow
of illegal immigrants across the country. Further, downward revision to
consumer sentiment index for May 2019 weighed on the indices.
