Indian equity markets went up, led by expectations that the mass
vaccination drive may help curtail the raging second COVID-19 wave in the
country. Supportive global cues also contributed to the gains.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.79% and
0.77% to close at 48,080.67 and 14,406.15 respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,724 scrips advancing
and 1,203 scrips declining. A total of 157 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Bankex was the major gainer, up 2.14%
followed by S&P BSE Finance, up 1.92% and S&P BSE Metal, up 1.86%. S&P
BSE Consumer Durables was the major loser, down 1.51% followed by S&P
BSE FMCG, down 0.6% and S&P BSE IT, down 0.16%.
According to minutes of Reserve Bank of India’s latest monetary policy
meeting, rapidly growing coronavirus cases are the single biggest threat to
the Indian economy's continued recovery. The urgent need is to effectively
protect the current economic recovery so that it becomes broad-based and
long-lasting. The resurgence of coronavirus infections in several parts of
the world, as well as the resulting localised and regional lockdowns, has
thrown the growth outlook into doubt. In the face of global financial
markets being volatile due to inflation fears in emerging economies and
increasing commodity prices, the RBI governor has raised concerns about
the domestic outlook.
According to a major rating agency, the Indian economy is expected to
develop at an annual rate of 11% in FY22, but the government has warned
that wider lockdowns would have a "important" effect on the economy.
COVID-19 regulation, according to the department, is still a major economic
danger. In recent weeks, the number of new infections has increased, and
the world is in the midst of a second pandemic wave.
Torrent Power Limited has been awarded a long-term power purchase
agreement (PPA) for a solar power plant with a capacity of 300 megawatts
in Gujarat. The PPA was granted as part of the company's approved
distribution business unit's renewable purchasing duty (RPO).
IBM announced that it is collaborating with Parle Products, India's most
famous biscuit company, to help it bring its products to market more easily
and efficiently using IBM Cloud.
Asian markets closed in the green benefiting from overnight gains in the
U.S. market and on some bargain hunting. Nonetheless, gains were
restricted by caution amid doubts about an early economic rebound due to
the continuing surge in coronavirus in Asia and possibility of lockdowns in
places. Today (as on Apr 23), markets are trading lower following overnight
weakness in U.S. markets. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng are down 0.97% and
0.64% (as at 8:00 AM IST), respectively.
European markets rose with investors reacting positively to the European
Central Bank's monetary policy announcement, and some encouraging
earnings reports.
U.S. markets slipped following reports that U.S. President is planning to
propose nearly doubling the capital gains tax rate for wealthy individuals to
fund spending on child-care and education.
