Indian equity markets ended flat once again as investors stayed on the
sidelines in a holiday-truncated 3-day week and thin trading in the Asian
region. May 1 was Labour Day and Apr 29 markets were closed because of
polls in Mumbai. Globally, too, major markets are closed, such as Japan is
on a 10-day (Apr 27 to May 6) holiday, China is on a 4-day Labour Day
national holiday, beginning May 1.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.13% and
0.20% to close at 38,981.43 and 11,724.75, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 0.61% and 0.21%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,073 scrips
advancing and 1,444 scrips declining. A total of 164 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Telecom was the major gainer, up
1.97%, followed by S&P BSE Energy, up 0.49%, and S&P BSE Capital Goods,
up 0.32%. S&P BSE Power and S&P BSE Finance gained 0.25% and 0.08%,
respectively. S&P BSE IT was the major loser, down 1.84%, followed by
S&P BSE Tack and S&P BSE Consumer Durables, down 1.49% and 0.95%,
The Nikkei India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to
51.8 in Apr 2019 from 52.6 in Mar 2019. This marked eight-months low
amid softer increase in new orders. New business growth moderated at
the beginning of FY20 due to political uncertainty and a challenging
economic environment.
Government data showed that the growth of eight core sectors grew
4.7% in Mar 2019 as against upwardly revised growth of 2.2% (2.1%
growth originally reported) in the previous month and 4.5% in the same
month of the previous year. The growth came due to 15.7% and 9.1%
surge in the cement and coal sector in the reported period as against
surge of 8% and 7.4% in the previous month. Steel grew 6.7% while
refinery and fertilizers each grew 4.3%. Only crude oil sector fell and
witnessed decline of 6.2%.
The Goods and Services Tax (GST) collections in surged to Rs. 1,13,865
crore in Apr 2019, thereby marking the highest level since its roll out in
2017. The collections had hit a record high of Rs. 1.06 lakh crore in Mar
2019 as against Rs. 97,247 crore in Feb 2019 driven by high compliance
and increased number of returns. Out of collection of Rs. 1,13,865 crore in
Apr 2019, Central GST stood at Rs. 21,163 crore, and State GST and
Integrated GST came in at Rs. 28,801 crore and Rs. 54,733 crore,
According to oil ministry data, India’s natural gas consumption rose 1.5%
YoY in FY19 to 53.05 billion cubic metres (BCM) from 52.25 BCM in the
previous year period. As per the ministry, higher imported gas prices
limited the demand from the power sector and other industries. The oil
ministry stated that at this rate of demand growth, it would be difficult to
achieve the goal of raising the share of natural gas in its energy mix from
current 6% to 15% by 2030.
According to the President of Asian Development Bank, India was the
biggest recipient of funds from the bank in 2018. This multilateral funding
institution had committed $3 billion in sovereign loans to India in 2018.
This marked the highest level of assistance since sovereign operations
began in the country in 1986.
Asian equity markets were mixed as the U.S. Fed left interest rates
unchanged, as was expected. Investors kept their eyes on the latest
developments in the ongoing U.S.-China trade talks. Today (as of May 3),
Asian markets opened on a lower note following decline in Wall Street in
the last session. Investors remained focused on U.S. jobs data for Apr 2019
scheduled on May 3, 2019. Hangseng fell 0.71% (as at 8.a.m. IST). Nikkei
remained closed.
As per the last close, European markets closed on a lower note on
eurozone's weak manufacturing data for Apr 2019 and comments from
the U.S. Fed last day that ruled out any interest rate cuts near-term. Bank
of England held interest rates steady at the monetary policy meeting.
Further, investors remained focused towards corporate earnings results.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on a lower note on continued
disappointment towards remarks by U.S. Fed’s Chairman indicating that
the central bank will not likely lower interest rates in the near term.
Further, investors remained cautious ahead of the monthly jobs report on
May 3, 2019.
