Indian equity markets lost at the start of the week as hike in crude oil
prices because of attacks on Saudi oil wells overshadowed measures
announced by the government over the weekend. Oil prices saw their
biggest gain since 1991 after a major Saudi oil company’s facilities were
attacked, shutting around 5% of global supply. The government opened a
Rs. 10,000-crore special window for affordable housing to restart stalled
projects other than taking steps to push exports.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.7% and
0.65% to close at 37,123.31 and 11,003.50 respectively. S&P BSE MidCap
lost 0.27% and S&P BSE SmallCap gained 0.64%.
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,370 scrips
advancing and 1,147 scrips declining. A total of 179 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Consumer Durables was the major
gainer, up 1.22%, followed by S&P BSE FMCG, up 0.63%, and S&P BSE
Healthcare, up 0.37%. S&P BSE Oil & Gas was the major loser, down
1.61%, followed by S&P BSE Energy, down 1.33%, and S&P BSE Finance,
down 0.95%.
Government data showed that wholesale price index based inflation
remained unchanged at 1.08% in Aug 2019 compared to that of the
previous month and 4.62% in the same month of the previous year. The
build up inflation rate in FY20 till date stood at 1.25%, much lower than
3.27% in the corresponding period of the previous year. WPI inflation for
manufactured products fell to 0.00% which indicated lack of pricing
power for producers. Fuel and power inflation also remained in the
negative territory for the third consecutive month even though they are
concerns that such a trend might be short lived due to disruption in crude
oil supply from Saudi Arabia. However, WPI for food articles increased to
7.67% in Aug 2019 from 6.15% in Jul 2019.
Government data showed that India’s trade deficit narrowed to $13.45
billion in Aug 2019 from $17.92 billion in the same period of the previous
year. India’s trade deficit narrowed as imports fell 13.45% to $39.58
billion in Aug 2019 while exports came down at a comparatively slower
rate of 6.05% to $26.13 billion in Aug 2019. Imports came down as gold
imports plunged 62.49% to $1.36 billion in Aug 2019 while oil imports fell
8.9% to $10.88 billion in the same month.
Saudi Aramco officials have told Indian refiners that there would be no
shortage of supplies to them, media reports showed. This comes after
Saudi Aramco, which is world’s biggest oil producer, saw its oil facilities
being attacked by drones, disrupting more than half of the company’s oil
supplies and cutting global supply by 5%. The Ministry of Petroleum and
Natural gas is closely monitoring the situation in consultation with Indian
refiners and Saudi Aramco, the media quoted an Indian oil ministry
Unilever has achieved 100% renewable electricity usage at its offices,
factories and other facilities across five continents, the company was
quoted by media reports. This is in line with its target to become a carbon
neutral company by 2030. The company said 38% of grid electricity was
supplied through corporate Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and
green electricity tariffs.
Asian equity markets were mixed as oil prices increased and investors
awaited U.S. Federal Reserve’s upcoming meeting. Weak Chinese data
added to the woes. Brent crude touched the highest level since the Gulf
War in 1991 after 10 drone attacks occurred on Saudi Arabia's crude oil
production facilities over the weekend. Today (as of Sep 17), Asian
markets opened lower on crude oil price hike amid geopolitical tensions
in the Middle East. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading down 0.10%
and 0.84%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets were down as investors took stock of the tensions in
the Middle East following an attack on Saudi oil production. The U.S.
President said they were ready and waiting for Saudi Arabia’s response,
which heightened political instability fears for the region.
U.S. markets fell on fears that a spike in oil prices could slow down
global economic growth. Oil prices gained the highest in 28 years after a
prominent oil facility in Saudi Arabia was attacked, interrupting global
supply by a good 5%.

domestic inflation, which further weighed on sentiments.
