Indian equity markets ended in the red because of weak Asian cues.
Trade tensions kept investors in the region on their toes. U.S. President
had come down hard on Canada over the North American Free Trade
Agreement (NAFTA) and asked for revised deal that is "fair" to the U.S.
Media reports suggested that the President could very soon impose tariffs
on another $200 billion worth of Chinese imports. Also, rupee’s decline
continued unabated and dampened sentiment.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 declined 0.40% and
0.54% to close at 38,157.92 and 11,520.30, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
and S&P BSE Small Cap went down 2.60% and 2.04%, respectively.
On the BSE sectoral front, only two sectors gained and rest all fell. S&P
BSE Information Technology stood as the major gainer, up 1.93% followed
by S&P BSE Teck that grew 1.31%. S&P BSE Consumer Durables was the
major loser, down 2.58%, followed by S&P BSE Basic Materials and S&P
BSE Realty, down 2.49% and 2.11%, respectively. The information
technology (IT) sector gained as rupee hit a fresh low. A low rupee
benefits export-oriented businesses such as IT.

on petrol and diesel to cushion the recent increase in global crude oil
prices. This is because the government has limited fiscal space as imports
have turned expensive due to a plunge of the rupee against the
greenback. Also there are concerns that lowering excise duty on petrol
and diesel may widen the country’s current account deficit.
According to the telecom secretary, the new telecom policy which is
being branded as the National Digital Communications Policy is expected
to be placed before the Cabinet for approval in two weeks. There are
expectations that the new telecom policy will attract investment of
around Rs. 6.5 lakh crore in the sector and create 40 lakh new job
According to major global credit rating agency, the volatility of the
currency against the greenback will have limited impact on India's
sovereign credit profile as the country has a low level of foreign currency
and external debt. The rating agency also noted that increase in domestic
borrowing costs due to weakness of the rupee will be mitigated by the
Reserve Bank of India’s focus on containing domestic inflationary
