meltdown in technology stocks came to haunt bourses in Asia as well.
Technology and internet behemoths saw their stocks decline on the Wall
Street, which led to tech companies in Asia falling. Apart from this, the
emergence of misconduct charges against a major Japanbased
automaker’s chairman and pessimism over U.S.China trade talks at the
upcoming G20 summit marred sentiment.
Domestically, although the cues were strong, they couldn’t do much to
dispel the gloom. Crude oil prices were down, rupee was strong and the
Reserve Bank of India (RBI) board’s ninehour meeting the day before
gave mix ed signals as investors seemed divided on the outcome the
board has advised the bank to support small businesses and give banks
more time t o fulfil capital regulations. It also decided to form a n expert
committee to advice on whether RBI reserves are adequate since there
have been requests from the government for access to surplus reserves.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nif ty 50 declined 0.84% and
1% to close at 35,474.51 and 10,656.20, respectively.

against the U.S. for imposing high import duties on certain steel and
aluminium products, according to media reports. This happened after
both the countries failed to resolve the issue in a bilateral consultation
process under the dispute settlement mechanism of WTO. Imposition of
high import duties on these items by the U.S. has hurt exports by Indian
businesses. The U.S. move also does not comply with global trade rules.
European Union have taken the U.S. in the WTO for imposing 25% and
10% import duties on certain steel and aluminium products, respectively,
which has led to global trade tensions.

of 23 plac es. He sought input based o n areas such as artificial intelligence,
internet of things, big data analytics and blockchain. He launched the
Ease of Doing Business Grand Challenge on the Startup India Portal.
