Indian equity markets witnessed a lacklustre session and closed in the
red. Escalating concerns over the trade war between U.S. and China
continued to dent market sentiment. In the latest development, the U.S.
government is planning to impose curbs on Chinese investments in U.S.
technology companies and high-tech exports to China.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.61% and
0.55% to close at 35,470.35 and 10,762.45, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small-Cap slipped 0.80% and 0.89%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,775 scrips
declining and 819 scrips advancing. A total of 153 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, barring S&P BSE IT and S& BSE Teck, all the
indices closed in the red. S&P BSE Industrials was the major loser, down
1.83%, followed by S&P BSE Oil & Gas and S&P BSE Auto, which fell
1.55% and 1.51%, respectively. S&P BSE Energy and S&P BSE Capital
Goods slipped 1.40% and 1.31%, respectively.
According to the vice-chairman of Niti Aayog, it is unlikely that
petroleum will be brought under the purview of Goods and Services Tax
(GST) any time soon. The vice chairman clarified that the highest tax
bracket under GST is 28% while the total state and central taxes on
petrol put together at present are around 90%. Thus, no state will be
ready to take such a huge cut even if petroleum is bought under GST. He
added that in such a case, a new GST band will have to be opened which
in itself will be a cumbersome exercise. On a separate note, the vice
chairman opined that a better way to bring petroleum under GST will be
to first start rationalizing/reducing taxes on petroleum products.
Data from Reserve Bank of India (RBI) showed that Indian companies'
investments in their overseas subsidiaries/joint ventures fell 63% to
$1.17 billion in May 2018. India Inc's foreign direct investment in the
same period of the previous fiscal stood at $3.12 billion. India Inc's
foreign direct investment in Apr 2018 stood at $3.56 billion.
According to media reports, the government is working to improve the
regulations for auditors and corporate professionals. The objective is to
strengthen the "fabric of corporate governance" in the country. The
move assumes significance as till recently there has been multiple
instances of auditors resigning from companies on various grounds.
Hero MotoCorp announced that it is expecting double-digit growth for
its global business in FY19. The growth is expected to be driven by new
launches and additional focus on markets that have higher volumes
potential. The company is planning to enter Mexico in 2019.
According to media reports, investment worth 13.5 billion pounds has
been aligned by Jaguar Land Rover, owned by Tata Motors, in the next
three years on new models, technology development and capacity
addition. By FY24, the company is planning to launch four new models
and has lined up 99 different 'product actions'.
Asian markets mostly traded down on persisting concerns over trade
war between U.S. and China after the U.S. government hinted to block
Chinese investment in U.S. technology firms. Lower crude oil prices and
stronger yen further weighed on sentiment. However, some respite was
seen on news that reserve requirement ratio was lowered in some
Chinese banks. Today (as of June 26), Asian markets opened lower
following weak cues from Wall Street due to trade war concerns. Nikkei
and Hanseng fell 0.34% and 0.59%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed lower as continued
concerns about global trade war and effect of Brexit weighed on investor
sentiment. As per the reports, besides banning many Chinese companies
from investing in U.S. technology firms, U.S. President plans to block
additional technology exports to Beijing.
