Indian equity markets gained as rupee appreciated and crude oil prices
declined, easing concerns over rise in domestic inflation. Gains were
restricted by expiry of derivative contracts in two days and trade war
worries after the U.S. President told a newspaper that it was ‘highly
unlikely’ that his administration would pare or delay the 25% tariffs on
Chinese goods. The President also suggested putting tariffs on products
of a major U.S. technology company imported from China.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.45% and
0.54% to close at 35,513.14 and 10,685.60, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap gained 0.32%, while S&P BSE Small Cap increased 0.43%.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Information Technology was the
major gainer, up 1.67%, followed by S&P BSE Teck, up 1.36%, and S&P
BSE Energy, up 1.18%. S&P BSE Healthcare was the major loser, down
0.9%, followed by S&P BSE Metal and S&P BSE Telecom, down 0.8% and
0.67%, respectively.
The SEBI has issued a framework as per which a large corporate will
have to raise 25% borrowings through corporate bonds from FY20. The
announcement comes in order to deepen the corporate bonds market.
SEBI stated that if the entities are unable to comply with the
requirement, they will have to provide explanation for such shortfall to
the stock exchanges in a prescribed manner.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has lowered the hedging requirements
for external commercial borrowings (ECBs) of 3-5 years to 70% from
100%. The mandatory limit would automatically be reduced to 70% at
the time of rollover of the existing hedges. The reduction in hedging
requirements would help Indian companies in borrowing funds relatively
cheaply as hedging cost added up substantially to the final cost.
The National Stock Exchange (NSE) announced that it has received
approval from the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) for
introduction of weekly derivatives contracts on USD-INR that will be
launched from Dec 3, 2018. The managing director and CEO of NSE
stated that weekly derivatives contracts will help participants limit time-
related premium costs, thereby leading to effective protection for their
foreign exchange exposures.
The government is taking into consideration exercise of greenshoe
option worth Rs. 4,000-6,000 crore in the Central Public Sector
Enterprises - Exchange Traded Fund (CPSE ETF FF03) over the base issue
size of Rs. 8,000 crore. CPSE ETF works like a mutual fund scheme. It is
an instrument with which the government divests its stake in the CPSEs
without hitting the secondary market directly with individual PSUs.
Asian equity markets ended mostly up though the start was weak. The
major triggers were steadied as crude oil prices and improved political
situation in Europe. The initial weakness came on the back of U.S.
President dismissing hopes of a paring of tariffs on Chinese goods in an
interview to a newspaper. Today (as of Nov 28), Asian markets opened
on a mixed note as investors remained cautious waiting for a crucial
meeting between the U.S. President and Chinese leader in the week
ended Nov 30. Nikkei and Hangseng grew 0.84% and 0.50%, respectively
(as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed lower due to renewed
trade tensions between U.S. and China.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed almost higher following
comments from U.S. President’s top economic advisor that flashed some
hope that the U.S. and China will strike a compromise on trade.
However, reports that U.S. President has stated that it was highly
doubtful that there would be delay in increase in tariffs on $200 billion
worth of Chinese goods restricted the gains.
