free exports of up to $5.6 billion from the country.

dispute kept underlying sentiment cautious. Meanwhile, rising tension in
the Middle East, led to supply concerns of crude oil prices. The resultant
strength in oil prices supported gains in the oil stocks. Today (as of June
17), Asian markets opened on a positive note ahead of the U.S. Federal
Reserve policy meet later during the week. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng
were trading higher 0.27% and 1.27%, respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).

estimate for global oil demand growth due to trade concerns and fears of
a global recession.

under pressure after a U.S. based IT hardware major lowered its full‐year
revenue guidance despite upbeat Mar quarter earnings.

operation indicated liquidity infusion.

worries between the U.S. and China. This dampened investors’
sentiments on riskier assets, thus weighing down on the local currency.

wholesale price index. This raised speculations of muted inflationary
pressure across the eurozone. Besides, strengthening greenback amid the
upcoming U.S. Federal Reserve’s policy meeting also weighed on the

8.6% in May after surging 7.2% in Apr.
