Indian equity markets slumped in the last trading hour of the session to
close in the red. Steady rise in COVID-19 cases and slower-than-expected
pace of vaccination worried investors. Besides, confidence in the markets
took a hit following media reports that banks have approached Reserve
Bank of India to grant a 3-month moratorium period owing to slowdown in
economic activity.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.95% and 0.94%,
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,328 scrips advancing
and 16,37 scrips declining. A total of 176 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Healthcare was the major loser, down
1.50%, followed by S&P BSE Energy and S&P BSE Telecom which slipped
1.36% and 1.33%, respectively. S&P BSE Oil & Gas, S&P BSE Utilities and S&P
BSE Capital Goods were the only gainers, up 0.72%, 0.19% and 0.06%,
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has granted telcos
permission to conduct trials for 5G technology use and applications. Telcos
will need to perform trials in rural and semi-urban areas as well as urban
areas to ensure that the benefits of 5G technology are spread across the
country and not only in urban areas. The trials are currently scheduled to
last for six months. This involves a two-month cycle for purchasing and
setting up the equipment.
According to a global rating agency, the COVID wave in India would
eventually hit the recovery, possibly pushing growth below 10%. The longer
it takes to regain power, the worse the long-term consequences will be,
particularly because policy space is small. The rating agency further said
that India had been showing good recovery momentum since Sep 2020 and
until Mar/Apr 2021, when a major increase in cases triggered localised
lockdowns and mobility restrictions.
The Prime Ministers of India and the United Kingdom launched a bold 10-
year plan to turn India-UK relations into a comprehensive strategic
partnership and expand cooperation in key areas such as defence, security,
trade, and healthcare.
A major brokerage firm has lowered its estimate for India's economic
growth to 11.1% for FY22 as a number of cities and states declared
lockdowns of varying intensities to stop the spread of coronavirus
infections. Although the effect of the lockdown is less serious than last
year, recent decreases in services indicators such as e-way bills, mobility, rail
freight, and container traffic have contributed to a reduction in the number
of people working.
Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZ) reported 288% rise
in consolidated net profit to Rs. 1,321crore for the quarter ended Mar 2021
as against Rs. 340.21 crore in the corresponding period of the previous
RBL Bank reported 34% fall in profit to Rs 75 crore in quarter ended Mar
2021 as against Rs. 114 crore in the year-ago period due to provisioning for
possible loan losses that it sees in the retail unsecured segments.
Asian markets largely closed in the green despite lingering concerns about
the spike in coronavirus cases in the region. Buying interest found support
after advanced estimate showed that Hong Kong's economy grew at the
fastest pace in more than a decade in the first quarter of 2021. Today (as on
May 05), Asian markets fell following losses on the Wall Street overnight.
While Nikkei was closed for holiday, Hang Seng declined 0.15% (as at 8 a.m.
European markets declined following a sell-off in shares of technology
firms and several top name companies from other sectors due to concerns
about valuation. Worries about a surge in coronavirus cases in several
countries, added the downside.
U.S. markets fell on continued pullback by technology stocks. Losses
increased after hawkish comments from Treasury Secretary, who suggested
interest rates may have to rise modestly to prevent the economy from
overheating amid the recent spike in government spending.
