Indian equity markets gained mainly because investors’ expectations of
a rate-cut by the Reserve Bank of India were fueled by subdued inflation
data. Aug 2019 retail inflation remained below RBI’s medium-term target
of 4%. Global cues were encouraging too with positive U.S.-China trade
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.76% and
0.85% to close at 37,384.99 and 11,075.90 respectively. S&P BSE MidCap
and S&P BSE SmallCap gained 0.41% and 0.82% respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,509 scrips
advancing and 977 scrips declining. A total of 152 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Oil & Gas was the major gainer, up
2.73% followed by S&P BSE Consumer Durables, up 1.9% and S&P BSE
Energy, up 1.78%. S&P BSE Telecom was the major loser, down 0.53%
followed by S&P BSE Healthcare, down 0.38%.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has said that India’s economic
growth is much weaker’ than expected because of various factors, media
reports showed. Uncertainty in the corporate and environmental
regulations were sighted as reasons by IMF.
A Reserve Bank of India (RBI) committee has suggested setting up of a
federal body similar to the GST Council to implement reforms and boost
credit flow in the agriculture sector. It has also recommended direct
transfer of subsidy and no farm loan waivers. It said banks should develop
a management information system to flag loans sanctioned against gold
as collateral in core banking solution platform for effective monitoring of
end use of funds.
Commerce and industry minister said the government will soon launch
schemes to offer exporters loans, including foreign exchange credit, at
less than 4% interest rate, and increase the insurance cover up to 90%
against 60% at present. The minister said the government is concerned
that export credit has fallen, and so will come up with programme to
particularly support micro, small and medium enterprises. He added that
the ministry is waiting for the finance minister to take a call on some
issues on export credit.
The commerce and industry ministry, in its effort to remove the licence
raj and enhance ease of doing business, said no compulsory licence would
be required for manufacturers of goods, barring four segments of
tobacco items, defence equipment, hazardous chemicals and industrial
explosives. The ministry said that no industrial/arms licence is needed for
the manufacturer of any parts or accessories in the defence sector, unless
specifically listed for procuring licences.
According to media reports, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council
may lower levies for sectors like automobiles, biscuits and other fast-
moving consumer goods at its Sep 20, 2019, meeting. It could also discuss
raising the lowest slab of 5% to 8%.
Asian equity markets were broadly higher mainly on the back of positive
U.S.-China trade developments and an adequately dovish European
Central Bank rate decision. The U.S. President said he might consider an
interim deal with China while preferring a full agreement. Today (as of
Sep 16), Asian markets opened on a weak note as oil prices surged due to
drone attacks that hit major oil production facilities in Saudi Arabia.
Hangseng fell 0.76% (as at 8.a.m. IST). Nikkei remained closed.
European markets gained after the European Central Bank (ECB)
unveiled an aggressive stimulus package to support the ailing euro
economy. ECB’s new quantitative easing programme will see 20 billion
euros ($21.9 billion) per month of net asset purchases while it also cut
interest rate on its main deposit facility by 10 basis points to -0.5%, which
is a new record low.
U.S. markets gained on U.S.-China trade optimism. Media reports
showed that China will exempt some U.S. agricultural products, including
soybeans and pork, from additional tariffs.
