Nifty ends lower for fourth straight session
21 Sep 17:56

Continuing its losing streak for the fourth straight session, the local equity benchmark Nifty ended Friday’s session in red terrain. After a positive start, the index remained firm for first half of the session, as optimism spread among the traders with Employment Provident Fund Organisation’s (EPFO) data report showing that India created 9.51 lakh new jobs in the month of July 2018. As per the report, total 9,51,423 new payrolls were created during July 2018 as against 8,57,934 created in the previous month, registering a growth of 10.90%. Traders took encouragement with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement that the size of Indian economy would double to $5 trillion by 2022, with manufacturing and agriculture contributing $1 trillion each. However, the Nifty witnessed sharp plunge in the second half, as former Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram blamed the government’s heavy-handed approach to the NPA problem for the sharp decline in export credit. He said despite government’s claims of taking steps to boost exports, the export credit had declined sharply to Rs 22,300 crore in June from Rs 39,000 crore in the same month in 2017.Domestic sentiments also got hit with the EEPC India stating that at a time when the country is grappling with the widening of the current account deficit (CAD), any move to raise import duty on steel or steel products would severely hit India`s crucial engineering exports and rather lead to further expansion of the CAD. But, firm cues from global markets helped the market to recover some ground in the last leg of the trade. Traders got some relief with Minister of State for Agriculture Parshottam Rupala’s statement that the farmer-producer organisation (FPO) model could help achieve the goal of doubling farmers’ income ‘well before time’. Adding some support, the Reserve Bank eased norms for companies in the manufacturing sector to raise overseas funds and allowed Indian banks to market Masala Bonds in line with the government’s measures to prop up the rupee.All the sectoral indices ended in red on the NSE. The top gainers from the F&O segment were Just Dial, Oil India and Page Industries. On the other hand, the top losers were Dewan Housing Finance Corporation, Yes Bank and Infibeam Avenues. In the index option segment, maximum OI continues to be seen in the 11,300-11,800 calls and 10,900 -11,200 puts indicating this is the trading range expectation.The India Volatility Index (VIX), a gauge for market’s short term expectation of volatility increased by 10.92% and reached 15.53.

Nifty ends in red territory on Wednesday
19 Sep 17:56

Key Indian equity benchmark Nifty ended in red terrain on Wednesday, with the losses of around 0.40%. After a firm start, the index traded in green for first half of the session, supported by a report that the finance ministry on September 18 asked ministries to shortlist commodities and goods for import curbs by increasing customs duty, to ease the pressure on the rupee and keep the widening Current Account Deficit (CAD) on check. Some support also came after Finance Minister Arun Jaitley made a case for blending subsidy with investment to augment farm sector growth and make it sustainable and self-sufficient. Sentiments remained optimistic with a report stating that Indian farmers and US manufacturers of medical devices could be among the main winners in a trade package under negotiation, as the US and India look to remove long-standing irritants to ties. Traders took note of a private report that India has deferred its plan for a second time to impose retaliatory tariff worth close to $235 million on 29 American products by 45 days to November 2.However, the market failed to hold gains in second half of the session and ended lower, impacted by a report stating that there has been a steep decline in economic confidence in India over the past year. In 2017, 83% of individuals surveyed thought the economy was doing good. But in 2018, it was down to 56%. This decline is in contrast to the trend in most countries where public confidence was similarly pronounced in 2017 and 2018. Traders also got cautious with a private report stating that the country’s rainfall deficit in the ongoing monsoon season widened to 10%, hovering on borderline drought conditions, following below-normal showers every month - a pattern of consistent shortfall not seen since 2004. Adding some concerns, India Ratings’ report stated that though the Centre may manage to achieve the debt-to-GDP ratio target of 40% by FY23, the states achieving the 20% target looks difficult as most of them have not budgeted so far.All the sectoral indices ended in red on the NSE except Metal and IT.
