Indian equity markets closed in the red as investors resorted to profit
booking after a steep rise in the previous session. Investors are focusing
on election outcome throughout this week. Meanwhile, oil sector
remained under pressure after a few of the oil majors witnessed declines
on weak earnings results for FY19. Fall in pharma sector as a pharma
company plunged after posting loss in the quarter ended Mar 2019 added
to the losses.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.97% and
1.01% to close at 38,969.80 and 11,709.10, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
and S&P BSE Small Cap fell 0.84% and 0.61%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,610 scrips declining
and 960 scrips advancing. A total of 142 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Auto stood as the major loser and fell
2.60%, followed by S&P BSE Telecom that fell 1.61%. S&P BSE Metal and
S&P BSE Teck fell 1.55% and 1.50%, respectively. S&P BSE Bankex and S&P
BSE Power fell 1.48% and 1.42%, respectively. However, S&P BSE
Consumer Durables was the major gainer and grew 0.65% followed by S&P
BSE Energy that grew 0.19%.
According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and
Development (OECD), the gross domestic product (GDP) of the Indian
economy is expected to rise to 7.25% in FY19 and 7.5% in FY20 on the
back of lower domestic inflationary pressures, improved financial
conditions and rising rural consumption. In addition, OECD opined that
lower global crude oil prices and recent strengthening of the rupee against
the greenback will reduce pressure on domestic inflationary pressures and
help contain the current account deficit.
The Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) central board will set up a specialised
supervisory and regulatory cadre within the central bank to strengthen the
supervision and regulation of commercial banks, urban cooperative banks
and non-banking financial companies. The move comes after the board
reviewed the current economic situation, global and domestic challenges
and various areas of operations of the RBI.
According to a report by the Retirement fund body, Employment
Provident Fund Organisation, net employment generation stood at 8.14
lakh in Mar 2019 as compared to 7.88 lakh in Feb 2019. In FY19, 67.59 lakh
jobs were created. In Mar 2019, 2.25 lakh jobs were created in the age
group of 22 years to 25 years and 2.14 lakh jobs were created in age group
of 18 years to 21 years.
According to a major domestic credit rating agency, the speciality
chemicals market is expected to grow at a compounded annualised
growth rate of 12% to 13% over the next five years. The projection comes
as the domestic rating agency noted that opportunities have opened up
for the Indian market and there is scope for further investment in the
speciality chemicals segment as plants have been closed in European
Union and China due to increasing concerns over the environment.
A report from a major domestic credit rating agency showed that steel
production in the country may be severely impacted if there is a delay in
the auction of iron ore mines whose licenses are expected to decline by
Mar next year. Subsequently, the credit profile of the non-integrated steel
players and merchant miners may come under pressure.
Asian markets witnessed mixed trend as worries over escalating U.S.-
China trade tension reduced to some extent after U.S. Commerce
Department temporarily eased some restrictions imposed on Chinese
telecom giant in order to minimise disruption for its customers. Today (as
of May 22), Asian markets opened on a mixed note. Investors remained
cautious as trade tensions continued to linger between the U.S. and China.
However, Nikkei and Hangseng rose 0.18% and 0.09%, respectively (as at
8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed almost higher as U.S.
decided to temporarily ease trade restrictions on a Chinese tech giant.
Reports that eurozone consumer confidence have rose to its highest level
in seven months in May boosted market sentiment. However, downward
revision in global growth outlook for 2019 by OECD restricted the gains.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed almost higher on reports that
U.S. has temporarily eased trade restrictions on a Chinese telecom giant.
However, reports of unexpected drop in existing home sales in Apr
restricted the gains.
