Indian equity markets edged up with investors taking positive cues from
U.S. Federal Reserve’s decision to keep interest rates unchanged and re-
affirmation of its accommodative policy to support the economic recovery.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.06% and 0.2%
to close at 49,765.94 and 14,894.90 respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,373 scrips advancing
and 1,574 scrips declining. A total of 175 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Metal was the major gainer, up 5.23%
followed by S&P BSE Basic Materials, up 2.36% and S&P BSE Energy, up
0.94%. S&P BSE Auto was the major loser, down 1.09% followed by S&P BSE
Telecom, down 1% and S&P BSE Consumer Discretionary Goods & Services,
down 0.59%.
According to the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE),
unemployment rates in India in Apr 2021 stood at 8.2%, 8.6%, 8.4% and
7.4% in the first four weeks of the month. As per CMIE, the monthly
unemployment rate is likely to be close to 8% compared to 6.5% in Mar
2021 with lower absorption of labour in the market.
According to a rating agency, the third phase of India's Covid-19 vaccine
campaign, which targets people aged 18 to44, is unlikely to have a
substantial financial effect. State governments could absorb the cost by
making small cuts in revenue or capital expenditure as the total cost for all
states was estimated at Rs. 50,000 crore.
According to a major rating agency, due to hedges and a portion of
earnings in hard currency, most valued Indian companies can handle the
rupee's depreciation. Indian companies that produce revenue in rupees but
depend heavily on dollar debt to finance operations would be credit
negative as the currency continues to weaken against the U.S. dollar. This
will result in substantial monetary costs.
According to the vice chairman of Niti Aayog, the country's private sector,
not the government-owned enterprises, will have to drive growth. The vice
chairman went on to say that India's growth rates must be accelerated to at
least 8% in order to resolve problems such as poverty reduction, healthcare
reform, and expanding access to education. He believes that development
should be both inclusive and long-term.
Hindustan Unilever reported standalone net profit rose 41.07% to Rs. 2,143
crore for the quarter ended Mar 2021 as against profit of Rs. 1,519 crore in
the same period last year.
The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has approved Tata Digital's
acquisition of up to 64.3% of Supermarket Grocery Supplies (SGS) and sole
ownership of Innovative Retail Concepts (IRC), which operates BigBasket.
Asian markets largely closed in the green, led by positive cues from the
dovish comments of the U.S. Fed Chief and U.S. President's congressional
speech about increasing taxes on the rich. Today (as on Apr 30), markets are
largely trading low amid caution despite overnight gains in Wall Street.
Both Nikkei and Hang Seng are down 0.39% and 1.39% (as at 8:00 AM IST),
European markets went down after official data showed that Germany's
unemployment rose unexpectedly in Apr. Nonetheless, the fall was
restricted by higher-than-expected rise in euro zone economic sentiment
indicator for Apr.
U.S. markets largely closed in the green following the release of upbeat
earnings news from tech giants.
