Indian equity markets were flat on the first day of Nov 2018. Markets
rose initially after the manufacturing PMI for Oct 2018 grew at the
quickest pace in four months on the back of strong orders. Fall in global
crude oil prices and strengthening of the rupee against the greenback
provided some support. Gains were neutralised as market participants
looked forward to the quarterly earnings.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.03% and
0.06% to close at 34,431.97 and 10,380.45, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap gained 1.10% and 1.09%, respectively.
The market breadth on BSE was strong with 1614 scrips advancing and
1002 scrips declining. A total of 113 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Capital Goods was the major gainer,
up 2.34%, followed by S&P BSE Realty and S&P BSE Industrials, which
grew 2.27% and 1.71%, respectively. S&P BSE Basic Materials and S&P
BSE Metal grew 1.64% and 1.29%, respectively. S&P BSE Information
Technology was the major loser, down 1.78%, followed by S&P BSE Teck
and S&P BSE Fast Moving Consumer Goods, which fell 1.6% and 0.65%,
The Nikkei India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI)
increased to 53.1 in Oct 2018 from 52.2 in Sep 2018. The growth reflects
stronger order inflows as companies increased production, input
purchasing and employment. This marks the 15th straight month of
above 50 score. A score of above 50 means expansion and below 50
denotes contraction.
Collections from Goods and Services Tax (GST) crossed Rs. 1 trillion in
Oct 2018 on the back of pick-up in consumption demand during the
festive season. This will help ease fiscal deficit woes. Total GST collected
in Oct is Rs. 1.007 trillion, of this, Central GST is Rs. 16,464 crore, state
GST Rs. 22,826 crore, integrated GST Rs. 53,419 crore and cess Rs. 8,000
crore. In Sep 2018, GST collections were at Rs. 94,442 crore.
The U.S. has issued a notification and listed 90 products that have been
removed from the duty-free list from Nov 1, 2018. These were so long
subject to duty-free provisions under the Generalized System of
Preferences. This will impact at least 50 Indian products, mostly from
handloom and agriculture sectors. This comes after the U.S. President
issued a Presidential proclamation. The proclamation is product-specific
and not country-specific. Since India is the biggest beneficiary of the
Generalized System of Preferences, it has been affected the most.
According to Reserve Bank of India’s former governor Bimal Jalan, the
present situation in India wherein rupee is depreciating, global oil prices
are rising and there is massive foreign funds outflow from the capital
market is not the same as the balance of payments (BoP) emergency of
1991. He said India now has stronger than before fundamentals, BoP is
strong and foreign exchange reserves are at one of the highest levels.
Asian equity markets ended mixed on the back of new stream of
corporate earnings, encouraging U.S. private-sector job growth data and
downbeat Chinese data. In spite of the discouraging data, Chinese
markets gained on indication of greater stimulus from the government.
Today (as of Nov 2), Asian markets opened higher following gains in Wall
Street and comments from the U.S. President indicating potential
progress in trade negotiations with China. Nikkei and Hangseng were up
1.01% and 2.11%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed on a mixed note amid
mixed bag of quarterly results. Investors remained focused on latest
developments in Brexit negotiations and were cautious amid a monetary
policy announcement from the Bank of England.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed higher as comments from the
U.S. President indicated potential progress in U.S.-China trade relations.
Reports that overall corporate earnings have been mostly better than
expected this season and data showing that initial U.S. weekly jobless
claims fell for the week ended Oct 27, 2018 boosted investor sentiment.
