After witnessing a volatile session through-out the day, Indian equity
markets fell to near about seven months low. Weak cues from global
peers, expiry of Oct-series futures and options (F&O) contracts and
subdued corporate earnings from major automaker weighed on the
sentiments. Additionally, concerns of faster rate hikes by U.S. Federal
Reserve and ongoing U.S.-China trade war kept investors cautious.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 1.01% and
0.98% to close at 33,690.09 and 10,124.90, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
and S&P BSE Small-Cap fell 0.58% and 0.98% respectively.
On the BSE sectoral front, all the indices closed in red and S&P BSE
Telecom (-2.9%) stood as the major loser followed by S&P BSE Realty (-
1.79%) and S&P BSE Healthcare (-1.59%). Auto sector too posted huge fall
after a major auto maker reported quarterly loss for the period ending
Among the 31-stock sensitive Sensex pack, Wipro (3.30%) stood as the
top gainer followed by Coal India (1.66%) and Kotak Bank (1.415).
Meanwhile, Bharti Airtel (-6.60%) stood as the major loser followed by
Vedanta Ltd. (-3.47%).
Government data showed that India’s fiscal deficit for Apr-Sep 2018
came in at Rs. 5.95 lakh crore, or 95.3% of the budgeted target for FY19
against 91.3% in the year-ago period. Net tax revenue was Rs. 5.83 lakh
crore or 39.4% of the budget estimate for FY19 compared with 44.2% in
the corresponding period of the previous year. The government’s total
expenditure for the period from Apr to Sep of 2018 stood at Rs. 13.04 lakh
crore or 53.4% of the budget estimate for FY19 compared with 53.5% in
the corresponding period of the previous year.
The government has approved the setting up of Appellate Tribunal and
Adjudicating Authority that will work for speedy disposal of cases related
to benami transactions. The government had notified Sessions courts in
34 states and Union Territories earlier in Oct 2018. These courts will act as
special courts for trial of offences under the benami transaction law.
According to a major credit rating agency, the supply of corporate bonds
is expected to increase to Rs.55 lakh crore - Rs. 60 lakh crore by the end of
FY23. This will be double as against Rs. 27.4 lakh crore witnessed at the
end of FY18. The upside is driven by increase in bond issuances from the
financial and infrastructure sectors. Meanwhile, the agency expects the
demand for these instruments to be more than Rs. 53 lakh crore, driven
by retirement funds, insurance companies, mutual funds, foreign portfolio
investors and others, and banks. This means that there would be a gap
between supply and demand in the range of Rs. 2 lakh crore- Rs. 7 lakh
According to media reports, the net profit of Yes Bank fell 3.8% on a
yearly basis in the quarter ended Sep 2018 to Rs. 964.70 crore. Net profit
came down due to an impact of Rs 252.2 crore of one-time mark to
market provisioning, predominantly on corporate bonds.
According to media reports, the net profit of Maruti Suzuki fell 9.8% to
Rs. 2,240 crore as against a profit of Rs. 2,484.30 crore in the same period
of the previous year. As per reports, this is the first decline in company’s
quarterly profit after nine consecutive quarters of profit growth.

purchase program would end in Dec 2018. ECB President was also
confident regarding the economy and that the inflation is gradually
approaching its aim.
