Indian equity markets gained, breaking the four-day losing streak.
Financial and oil marketing stocks were at the fore front of gains ahead of
the expiry of Oct-series futures and options (F&O) contracts.

0.77% to close at 34,033.96 and 10,224.75, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
and S&P BSE Small Cap increased 0.95% and 0.74%, respectively.

2.21%, respectively. S&P BSE Consumer Durables and S&P BSE Finance
gained 1.62% and 1.44%, respectively. S&P BSE Healthcare was the major
loser, down 0.3%, followed by S&P BSE Information Technology and S&P
BSE Power, down 0.22% and 0.02%, respectively. The telecom sector
surged as an industry leader gained on news of global investors investing
in its African subsidiary.
To enable single-click onboarding, the department of
telecommunications (DoT) will launch a mobile app. Single-click
onboarding will mean a user can have one-time login and authentication
to access any public WiFi hotspot in the country. The app will offer users
cheaper and faster internet compared with mobile data and also enhance
the proliferation of public Wi-Fi hotspots. This will take forward the
objectives of national digital communications policy approved by the
Union cabinet in Sep 2018.
The government is planning to change many sections of the Companies
Act to simplify the law, which came into force in 2013. The ministry of
corporate affairs is looking into the changes, which include fast tracking of
mergers and acquisitions, doubling of penalty for repeat offences, raising
remuneration of independent directors and preventing Section 8
companies, or companies formed with charitable objects, from changing
into commercial companies. Offences that are procedural and technical
lapses have been proposed to be transferred to in-house adjudication
Wipro Ltd reported 13.8% decline in second-quarter net profit as higher
expenses played spoilsport. The Indian software services
exporter registered a net profit of Rs. 1,889 crore in the quarter ended
Sep 2018 against Rs. 2,192 crore in the year-ago period.
InterGlobe Aviation Ltd, the company that operates IndiGo airline,
reported loss of Rs. 652.13 crore for the Sep 2018 quarter. This is the
company’s first-ever loss since it got listed on the stock exchanges in Nov
2015. The slide came due to rising jet fuel prices, currency depreciation,
lower yields and a foreign exchange loss. All this outweighed higher
passenger traffic. The airline had reported a profit of Rs. 551.56 crore in
the year-ago period.
Markets for You
Asian equity markets came in mixed as optimism over upbeat Japan
manufacturing data was overshadowed by fall in oil prices and concerns
over U.S. earnings. Disappointing earnings of American big shots made
investors worry over slowing global growth. Also, U.S.-China trade war,
Italian budget and U.S.-Saudi dispute continued to make investors
anxious. Today (as of Oct 25), Asian market opened lower following losses
in the Wall Street. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading down 3.42%
and 2.25%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed mostly lower due to
losses in the Wall Street. However, strong quarterly results of retail stocks
restricted the losses.
As per the last close, U.S. markets closed lower following disappointing
quarterly results from companies. Steep decline in new home sales in Sep
2018 also weighed on investors sentiments.

and meet the supply deficit due to U.S. sanction on Iran. The local unit

growth in the euro zone.

were for 53.9.
