The domestic equity market ended in the red as the recent weakness in
the rupee continued to worry investors. The indices saw the lowest
closing in around two months. Rupee has been hit by the strength in the
U.S. dollar and rising global crude oil prices, which reached two-month
high on Sep 19 on supply concerns since U.S. sanctions on Iran are slated
to take effect. However, the rupee managed to recover to some extent
against the greenback on hopes that the government will intervene and
soon announce measures for preventing further currency downside.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.45% and
0.39% to close at 37,121.22 and 11,234.35, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap declined 0.72% and 0.98%, respectively.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Metal stood as the major gainer, up
1.25% followed by S&P BSE Oil & Gas that grew 0.98%. S&P BSE Basic
Materials and S&P BSE Information Technology grew 0.2% and 0.15%.
The other two sectors to grow were S&P BSE Energy and S&P BSE Teck,
up 0.14% and 0.07%, respectively.
In order to promote ease of doing business, the government has made
procedures simple under the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme
(MEIS). Under the scheme, traders can get export incentives. MEIS gives
duty benefits based on the product and country. The process of system
driven approval of the MEIS claim applications in respect of exports
made through electronic data interface shipping bills will start from Sep
20, 2018.
The government may announce import curbs on many non-essential
items, according to media reports. Finance minister had said last week
the government will ease regulations for raising overseas borrowing and
put limitations on non-essential imports as part of efforts to check rising
current account deficit and a falling rupee.
The National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD)
has given approval to Rs. 65,634.93 crore loan for 93 prioritised irrigation
projects. These projects come under the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai
Yojana (PMKSY). NABARD is funding the share that belongs to the centre
and states in 99 prioritised irrigation projects through long term
irrigation fund. The projects are expected to be complete by 2019.
According to media reports, Mitsubishi has entered into a partnership
with Google to embed the Android operating system in its vehicles.
According to media reports, Moody's Investors Service has maintained
the outlook on the ratings of YES Bank as stable. The global credit rating
agency expects that the bank can maintain low credit costs over the next
12-18 months.
According to media reports, Aditya Birla Group has decided to sell
Aditya Birla Retail to home-grown private equity fund Samara Capital and
global e-commerce giant Amazon.
According to media reports, Computer Age Management Services
(CAMS), which is a SEBI mutual funds transfer agency has added 2 million
registered users. It needs to be noted that CAMS had added 10 lakh new
registered investors within a short span of one year.
Asian equity markets were subdued as the trade war between China
and U.S., which was till now limited to the two countries’ officials, has
now engulfed leading businessmen. A global e-commerce giant belonging
to China and listed in the U.S. as well said it has cancelled plans to create
one million jobs in the U.S. This overshadowed positive Wall Street cues
overnight. Today (as of Sep 21), Asian markets opened higher following
record highs on Wall Street in the last session. Nikkei and Hangseng grew
0.56% and 0.59%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed higher following gains in
banking and mining stocks. Better than expected U.K. retail sales report in
Aug 2018 boosted market sentiment. Further, it seems that investors
shrugged off concerns over the trade war between the U.S. and China.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed higher as investors likely
shrugged off escalating U.S. and China trade tensions. Reports that initial
jobless claims fell to lowest level in nearly fifty years for the week ended
Sep 15 and continued increase in leading economic index in Aug boosted
market sentiment.
