Indian equity markets dipped as worries of a second coronavirus wave in
India and elevated U.S. Treasury bond yields kept investors wary.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex lost 0.17% and Nifty 50 lost 0.05%
to close at 49,771.29 and 14,736.40 respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,557 scrips advancing
and 1,491 scrips declining. A total of 216 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Realty was the major gainer, up 2.86%
followed by S&P BSE IT, up 1.73% and S&P BSE FMCG, up 1.59%. S&P BSE
Bankex was the major loser, down 1.51% followed by S&P BSE Finance,
down 1.01% and S&P BSE Consumer Durables, down 0.68%.
According to the latest data by the Reserve Bank of India, so far in FY21,
foreign portfolio investors have invested a total of USD 36 billion in
equities, the most since FY13. Net foreign direct investment inflows, on the
other hand, increased to USD 44 billion by the end of Jan 2021, up from
USD 36.3 billion a year earlier, owing to strong inflows in Nov 2020 and Dec
2020, with the last month of the year receiving a record USD 6.3 billion. In
Jan 2021, however, the inflows slowed due to lower equities inflows.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has announced the establishment of a
standing external advisory committee (SEAC) to review universal bank and
small finance bank applications. A former deputy governor will lead the
five-member committee. After the regulator has vetted the plan, the SEAC,
which will have a three-year term, will screen applications for universal and
small finance banks.
Parliament has approved a bill to increase foreign direct investment (FDI) in
the insurance sector from 49% to 74%, with the Lok Sabha voting in favour
of the bill by voice vote. The Finance Minister, who is piloting the Bill,
claimed that raising the FDI cap in the insurance sector would assist insurers
in raising additional funds and overcoming financial difficulties.
As per media reports, as excise duty on the two fuels was raised, the central
government's tax collections on petrol and diesel rose by more than 300%
in the last six years. In 2014-15, the central government received Rs. 29,279
crore from petrol excise duty and Rs. 42,881 crore from diesel excise duty.
Bharti Airtel said its special board of directors has approved the preferential
allotment of 36.4 million equity shares to a Warburg Pincus affiliate at the
issue price of Rs. 600 as part of the Bharti Telemedia transaction.
Piramal Capital & Housing Finance, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Piramal
Enterprises Limited (PEL), announced the issuance of long-term, five-year
non-convertible debentures (NCDs) in two tranches, raising Rs. 4,050 crore.
Asian markets witnessed a mixed trend with investors monitoring the trend
of the Turkish lira following a sudden upheaval at the country’s central
bank. Meanwhile, concerns about the recent surge in global bond yields and
the prospects of a global economic recovery kept investors wary. Today (as
on Mar 23), Asian markets rose following gains on the Wall Street
overnight. Both Hang Seng and Nikkei rose 0.51%, and 0.06%, respectively
(as at 8 a.m. IST).
European markets mostly rose marginally but buying interest remained
subdued amid concerns about a third wave of coronavirus infections, the
turmoil in Turkey following a rate hike and the sacking of the country's
central bank chief.
U.S. markets rose following decline in the U.S. treasury yields, which
generated buying interest in high-growth companies. Yields fell on safe
haven appeal amid turmoil in the Turkish lira and concerns over rising Covid-
19 cases in Europe.
