Indian equity markets gained and registered record highs for the third
consecutive session. Investor sentiment is riding the election results ofa
clear win to the ruling government. This has given them confidence that
the reforms undertaken in the previous term will continue and new ones
will be introduced.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.17% and
0.03%, respectively, to close at 39,749.73 and 11,928.75, respectively. S&P
BSE Mid‐Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap gained 0.09% and 0.41%,
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1424 scrips
advancing and 1188 scrips declining. A total of 149 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Information Technology was the
major gainer, up 1.64%, followed by S&P BSE Teck and S&P BSE Energy, up
1.36% and 1.17%, respectively. S&P BSE Metal and S&P BSE Oil & Gas
gained 0.95% and 0.55%, respectively. S&P BSE Utilities and S&P BSE
Power gained 0.49% and 0.45%, respectively.
According to a report, weakness in consumer spending and softening
commodity prices have led Indian businesses to deliver a six‐quarter low
revenue growth of 10.7% for the Jan‐Mar period. Operating margins also
narrowed 0.78% to 16.8% during the period but were up 0.93% on lower
commodity prices and price hikes, said the report by a major domestic
rating agency. The agency analysed the results of 304 listed entities while
arriving at the aggregate.
The government has decided to review the role of the National
Statistical Commission (NSC) and empower it through a legislation to give
it more power and resources. This comes in the wake of criticism over the
quality of official data on economic growth and employment. NSC is the
apex advisory body on statistical matters and has been defunct since Jan
2019, with no new independent members appointed by the government.
The Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI) has
suggested a National Statistical Commission Bill to strengthen its existing
institutional and legal framework, which has been found to be inadequate
for producing India’s official statistics. This plan is in line with the
proposed National Policy on Official Statistics.
According to media news, a section of farmers is getting ready to defy
the ban on the cultivation of genetically modified crops like Bt brinjal and
herbicide resistant Bt (HTBT) cotton, without caring for legal action. On
June 10, these farmers will openly plant HTBT cotton seeds at Akot in
Akola district of Vidarbha. In Apr 2019, anti‐GM activists had exposed a
plot of illegally planted Bt brinjal in Haryana. While that crop has been
destroyed by the administration, farmer organisations have been
demanding compensation.
The government could introduce an electronic invoice mechanism under
goods and services tax (GST), but could restrict it to large companies in the
initial phase, said media reports, citing government officials. This would
mean top companies may soon have to rely on a common goods and
services tax portal to issue invoices to their customers. After the
successful implementation of the e‐way bill system, the government is
upbeat on opting for the e‐invoicing as it looks to curb tax evasion. E‐
invoicing will allow the government to capture transactions on a real‐time
basis. For companies, it will make compliance, as well as getting their tax
credits, easier.
Asian equity markets were mostly higher on the back of European Union
election results and U.S. President's softer approach on trade. The U.S.
President in his meeting with Japan's Prime Minister said a trade deal
between the two nations would be done in Aug 2019. He added that U.S.
may make a deal with Beijing in the future. Today (as of May 29), Asian
markets opened on a lower note following decline on the Wall Street
overnight. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading lower 1.34% and
0.52%, respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets declined on lingering worries
about U.S.‐China trade dispute and concerns over high budget deficit in
As per the last close, U.S markets fell on lingering concerns about the
economic impact of the ongoing trade dispute between the U.S. and
China. Concerns resurfaced after the U.S. President expressed optimism
about the trade deal but also warned that U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods
could go up substantially and easily.
