Indian equity markets witnessed their biggest single-day fall in absolute
terms as coronavirus spread fears and its impact on the economy got
graver. Crash in crude oil prices and the subsequent developments led to
price war fears. OPEC in its meeting could not agree on output cuts as
Russia refused to oblige, after which Saudi Arabia went ahead and
announced price cut in Apr 2020 and an increase in production.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 5.17% and 4.9% to
close at 35,634.95 and 10,451.45 respectively. S&P BSE MidCap and S&P
BSE SmallCap lost 4.73% and 4.2% respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 327 scrips advancing and
2,231 scrips declining. A total of 167 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, all sectors lost. S&P BSE Energy was the major
loser, down 9.74%, followed by S&P BSE Metal and S&P BSE IT, down 7.62%
and 5.4%, respectively. S&P BSE Oil & Gas and S&P BSE Teck lost 5.22% and
5.13% respectively.
A prominent global rating agency has once again downgraded its baseline
growth projections for India. This comes in less than a month’s time when
the agency had revised growth projections. This time it has the growth is
projected at 5.3% for 2020 from 5.4% earlier, cautioning that an extensive
and prolonged slump as a result of COVID-19 outbreak will reduce growth
in Asia’s third largest economy to 5% during the same calendar year.
The Securities & Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has proposed a detailed
review of the regulatory framework for Corporate Bonds and Debenture
Trustees (DTs). As per the consultation paper, non-banking financial
companies (NBFCs) will now be required to create an identified charge on
the assets. SEBI has further proposed creation of a recovery fund by the
issuer at the time of issuance of security. This is aimed at mitigating the
problem of delay in receipt of funds to the debenture trustees and ensure
an accelerated enforcement of security.
Crude oil prices tumbled more than 30% on Mar 9, 2020, which is the
sharpest decline since the 1991 Gulf War. This came after the collapse of
Opec’s talks triggered a price war, with both Russia and Saudi Arabia set to
flood the market with cheap oil. India stands to benefit from this as media
reports said every $10 fall in crude price helps India save $15 billion of
external payment or 0.5% of GDP (gross domestic product). Thus, the
massive fall in crude price will benefit India’s macrocurrent account
deficit, fiscal deficit and inflation.
India’s economic affairs secretary said there’s no need for the government
to take immediate steps to support the economy following a crash in oil
prices that has sent financial markets into a tailspin.
Asian equity markets made up for early losses to end in the green after the
U.S. President said he will take steps to help virus-hit businesses. He said he
would discuss a possible payroll tax cut or "substantial relief" with the
Senate and House Republicans. Today (as of Mar 11), Asian markets opened
mixed as investors look forward to stimulus as the virus spread continues.
Nikkei was down 0.51% and Hang Seng up 0.27% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets declined as investors tried to cope with the heavy losses
(worst since the 2008 financial crisis) seen in the previous session on the
back of virus fears and crash in crude oil prices.
U.S. markets gained sharply as investors weighed the prospects of fiscal
stimulus to tackle slower economic growth because of the coronavirus
