Indian equity markets witnessed sharp decline, tracking weak global cues
after scientists in the United Kingdom discovered a new strain of COVID-19
leading to several nations restricting flight services to Britain. India has
joined the growing list of countries that have already announced
restrictions on travel to the U.K.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 3% and 3.14% to
close at 45,553.96 and 13,328.40 respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 564 scrips advancing and
2,472 scrips declining. A total of 156 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, all sectors lost. S&P BSE Metal was the major
loser, down 6.05%, followed by S&P BSE Oil & Gas and S&P BSE Utilities,
down 5.99% and 5.68%, respectively. S&P BSE Realty and S&P BSE Basic
Materials lost 5.03% and 4.74% respectively.
Capital market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has
come out with norms to improve the risk management system in limited
purpose clearing corporation (LPCC). According to the new norms, LPCC
would have the flexibility to collect clearing member primary contribution.
This implies that LPCC will have the flexibility to either collect the
contribution upfront or staggered over a period of time. In case the LPCC
seeks staggered contribution or is not seeking contribution from clearing
members then the remaining balance should be met by LPCC to ensure
adequacy of total Settlement Guarantee Fund (SGF) corpus at all times.
SEBI came out with new stress testing perimeters for commodity
derivatives. The objective of the move is to counter extreme volatility in
price movements. According to the new norms, the margin period of risk
will now be 15 years instead of 10 years and all the price movements during
the last 15 years will be scanned for stress testing.
According to the Agriculture Minister, the government is focused on farm
mechanization. The minister on a separate note urged the industry to come
out with small machines and equipment for farmers who have very little
land such that they are able to increase their income.
According to media reports, Google India has partnered with Sheroes to
support 500 rural women entrepreneurs. Google will connect them with
experts and give access to resources, guidance and mentorship.
According to media reports, Edelweiss Financial Services (EFSL) will raise up
to Rs. 200 crore through issuance of secured redeemable non-convertible
debentures (NCDs)
Asian markets went down following media reports that a new strain of
COVID-19 virus has been found in the U.K. that is 70 % more infectious.
Stumbling trade negotiations between Britain and the European Union and
rising U.S.-China tensions also weighed on market sentiments. Today (as on
Dec 22), markets are trading lower following overnight jitters regarding
new coronavirus strain in the U.K. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng are down
0.62% and 0.17% (as at 8:00 AM IST), respectively.
European markets closed in the red amid worries about a rapid surge in a
new variant of the coronavirus in the U.K. and tighter lockdown measures.
U.S. markets managed to recover from the initial sell-off, triggered by news
of new variant of coronavirus strain in U.K., to close with mixed trend
following media reports that Congressional leaders moved towards the
passage of a new $900 billion relief package.
