Indian equity markets slipped to the negative territory as the stimulus
measures announced by the finance minister, as a part of the government's
Rs 20 trillion economic package, fell short of market expectation.
Additionally, the government's decision to extend the nationwide
lockdown, albeit with some relaxations, till May 31, dented sentiment.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 3.44% and 3.43%
to close at 30,028.98 and 8,823.25 respectively. S&P BSE MidCap and S&P
BSE SmallCap lost 3.87% and 2.92% respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 549 scrips advancing and
1,770 scrips declining. A total of 160 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE IT was the major gainer, up 1.36%
followed by S&P BSE Teck, up 0.53%. S&P BSE Bankex was the major loser,
down 6.69% followed by S&P BSE Finance, down 6.65% and S&P BSE Auto,
down 5.51%.
The finance minister said the government would amend the Insolvency and
Bankruptcy Code (IBC) to exempt debt incurred during coronavirus
outbreak and to postpone all fresh resolution filings for up to a year. The
government will provide an additional Rs. 40,000 crore allocation for the
Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA)
for FY21, allowing states to borrow up to 5% of the existing 3% gross
domestic product (GSDP) and privatize public sector enterprises (PSEs) in
non-strategic sectors as part of a new strategy for such units.
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has advised custodians
and banks to alert the regulator of any change in ‘beneficial ownership’ of
foreign portfolio investors (FPI) that has links to China. The guidance
suggests that the regulator is keeping close watch over any change in
ultimate investor control or ownership of offshore funds.
According to a report, the combined fiscal deficit of the centre and states
will likely be at 12% of the gross domestic product (GDP) because of the
recent economy boosting initiatives, and higher borrowings by States to
control COVID-19 emergencies.
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) released a fresh set of guidelines under
which the government revoked its order directing employers to pay wages
to workers, even with units remaining closed during lockdown.
Asian markets rose, backed by optimism over gradual reopening of
businesses around the world, which also helped investors shrug off worries
over a renewed trade row between U.S. and China. Today (as on May 19),
markets traded higher, tracking overnight gains in the Wall Street. Both
Nikkei and Hang Seng are up 2.27% and 2.35%, respectively (as at 8.a.m.
European markets went up on hopes of more stimulus from governments
and central banks, and optimism about a potential coronavirus vaccine
sometime soon.
U.S. markets rose after an American bio-technology firm reported "positive"
phase one results for a potential coronavirus vaccine.
