Indian equity markets gained for the third straight day of the week as
encouraging signs emanated on the U.S.-China trade front and gave global
markets a fillip. U.S. economic advisor said the administration has opened
talks with China on all levels and the chances of the two countries ironing
out issues at the upcoming G20 meeting are encouraging. Domestic
markets also witnessed short covering ahead of the expiry of derivatives
contracts on Nov 29, 2018.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.57% and
0.40% to close at 35,716.95 and 10,728.85, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
lost 0.50%, while S&P BSE Small Cap went down 0.48%.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,639 scrips declining
and 972 scrips advancing. A total of 159 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Information Technology was the
major gainer, up 3.58%, followed by S&P BSE Teck, up 2.88%, and S&P BSE
Consumer Durables, up 0.52%. S&P BSE Telecom was the major loser,
down 2.87%, followed by S&P BSE Realty and S&P BSE Oil & Gas, down
1.91% and 1.57%, respectively.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) plans to infuse Rs. 40,000 crore into the
system in Dec 2018 through Open Market Operations (OMOs). The
announcement comes based on an assessment of the durable liquidity
needs going forward. RBI will announce the details of the auction dates
for the OMOs in due course.
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) announced that it has
issued a framework for interoperability among clearing corporations
(CCPs), which will be operational from Jun 1, 2019. Instead of going
through the CCP owned by the bourse on which the trade was executed,
the interoperability would allow the trading members to clear trades
through a firm of their choice. Currently, different bourses have their own
CCPs that handle settlement of trades on the respective stock exchanges.
According to a report from India’s telecoms regulator, India's mobile
phone customer base has increased 0.21%, or a net 2.4 million, to 1.17
billion in Sep 2018 as against Jul 2018. Active mobile phone subscribers
came in at 1.01 billion in Sep 2018. Meanwhile, mobile connections per
100 people were 89.51 as of Sep 30, 2018.
SEBI is allowing alternative investment funds (AIFs) to operate from
International Financial Services Centre (IFSC). With this allowance, IFSC is
expected to emerge as the hotspot for private equity funds and venture
capitalists. The move is important as the Central government has been
making efforts to bring the fund management industry on shore from
current preferred destinations like Hong Kong and Singapore. However,
these efforts have brought in less results as substantially higher expenses
are required for setting up of the funds and also has higher tax incidence.
According to media reports, the Securities and Exchange Board of India
(SEBI) has directed MCX, the commodity exchange, to conduct an internal
enquiry into a complaint on alleged misuse of data provided by the
exchange to Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (IGIDR). The
results of the enquiry would be intimated to SEBI.
