Indian equity markets declined on weak global cues and liquidity
concerns. Rising geopolitical tensions kept major markets around the
world under pressure and the affects were seen in domestic markets as

0.96% to close at 33,847.23 and 10,146.80, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
lost 0.89%, while S&P BSE Small Cap fell 1.21%.

and 1832 scrips declining. A total of 134 scrips remained unchanged.

down 2.48% and 2.34%, respectively. S&P BSE Basic Materials and S&P
BSE Consumer Discretionary Goods & Services lost 1.74% and 1.23%,
Railways has drawn up a Rs. 35,000 crore plan for electrification of all
railway lines across India. It will electrify the Rameswaram-Madurai
section with a cost of around Rs. 158 crore for a 161-km stretch.
Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) data shows India’s non-
bank financial companies (NBFCs) are looking at repaying commercial
paper near a record Rs. 1.46 trillion in Aug-Oct 2018 and about Rs 1.2
trillion ($16.3 billion) in Oct-Dec 2018. This comes at the backdrop of the
fallout from defaults by a leading NBFC.
According media reports, the finance ministry could ask for relaxing the
prompt corrective action (PCA) framework of the Reserve Bank of India
(RBI) at the central bank’s board meeting. The board will also discuss ways
to ease credit flow to non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) in the
wake of the crisis at a leading NBFC.
HCL Technologies Ltd, software services exporter, registered 14.8% rise
in second-quarter net profit at Rs. 25.34 billion from Rs. 22.07 billion in
the year-ago period on higher revenue from its software services
business. The company beat market expectations.
RBL Bank’s Sep quarter profit increased 36% to Rs. 204.54 crore on the
back of rise in interest income. The bank had made Rs. 150.62 crore profit
in the year-ago period. Core net interest income increased 41% to Rs.
592.97 crore and non-interest income rose 38% Rs. 333.11 crore.
Jubilant Life Sciences’ consolidated net profit increased 67.18% to Rs.
209.77 crore for the quarter ended Sep 2018 against Rs. 125.47 crore in
the year-ago period. Robust pharma segment sales drove the
performance. Revenue from operations came in at Rs. 2,269.49 crore for
the period compared with Rs. 1,642.04 crore in the year-ago period.
Hindustan Zinc Ltd’s second-quarter profit fell 29.8% to Rs. 1,815 crore
from Rs. 2,584 crore in the year-ago period because of higher expenses.
Revenue from operations decreased 10% to Rs. 4,777 crore.
Asian equity markets declined as panicked investors resorted to sell-off.
The cause of their concern was the slowing global growth forecasts,
tensions between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia over a prominent journalist’s
death and the trade dispute. Italy’s budget and Brexit added their own bit
to investor anxiety. Today (as of Oct 24), Asian market opened higher
despite losses in the Wall Street. Also, decline in crude oil prices and weak
quarterly earnings restricted the gains. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were
trading up 0.20% and 0.37%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed lower after the Italian
budget was rejected by the European Commission and was granted three
weeks time to submit a revised plan. Disappointing quarterly results from
few companies also weighed on the market.
As per the last close, U.S. markets closed lower following disappointing
quarterly results from few big companies. Significant weakness in
overseas markets amid worries about global economic growth and
mounting geopolitical tensions also weighed on the markets. However,
strong results from a fast food giant restricted some losses.
