  • Sensex slips 80 pts; Nifty ends flat amid volatility

    The Sensex ended with small losses while the Nifty ended almost flat on Thursday. Trading was volatile on account of weekly expiry of options on the National Stock Exchange. Gains in auto stocks were negated by losses in banks stocks.

    The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, fell 80.32 points or 0.22% to 36,644.42. The Nifty 50 index rose 3.25 points or 0.03% to 10,847.90.

    The Nifty opened above 10,850 level and managed to cross 10,900 mark in morning trade. Indices reversed gains in mid-morning trade with the Nifty sliding below 10,850. The 50-unit index pared losses after hitting the day's low of 10,816 in afternoon trade.

    The broader market ended higher. The S&P BSE Small-Cap index rose 0.15%. The S&P BSE Mid-Cap index rose 0.72%.

    The market breadth was strong. On the BSE, 1451 shares rose and 989 shares fell. A total of 145 shares remain unchanged.

    Overseas, most shares in Europe and Asia advanced on Thursday, after confirmation of new US-China trade talks and Hong Kong showing signs of easing.

    China's Ministry of Commerce said Thursday that US and Chinese trade negotiators held a phone call in the morning and agreed to meet in early October for another round of negotiations.

    China's Shanghai Composite rose 0.96% after Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam fully withdrew the controversial extradition bill which caused months of violent protests in the city.

    Meanwhile in the UK, political turmoil over Brexit deepened. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson lost a series of key votes in the UK parliament, dramatically weakening his administration and paving the way for a general election in the coming weeks. Johnson has been pushing for a fast and potentially messy UK divorce from the European Union (EU) on 31 October, at the cost of economic disruption if necessary.

    US stocks advanced on Wednesday, after robust economic data from China, easing tensions in Hong Kong and British lawmakers' approval of a law to delay Brexit provided relief to investors worried about global growth.

    On the equity front back home, auto stocks rallied after Union Road Transport and Highway Minister Nitin Gadkari said at the annual SIAM Convention that he will recommend a reduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) to help the auto sector come out of a prolonged slump. He also said that India will not ban petrol and diesel vehicles.

    Escorts (up 2.74%), Maruti Suzuki India (up 2.41%), Mahindra & Mahindra (up 2.23%), Bajaj Auto (up 1.62%), Hero MotoCorp (up 1.54%), TVS Motor Company (up 1.45%), Ashok Leyland (up 0.8%) and Eicher Motors (up 0.72%) advanced.

    Tata Motors jumped 7.81%. The British parliament voted on Wednesday to prevent Prime Minister Boris Johnson taking Britain out of the European Union without a deal on 31 Oct. A no-deal Brexit poses significant risks to Jaguar Land Rover (JLR)'s business profile as it could disrupt its supply chain, and elongate its working capital cycle.

    Separately, media reports suggested that JLR plans to launch 30 new or revamped vehicles in China in the next two years. JLR brings in most of Tata Motor's revenue.

    Most banks declined after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) made it mandatory for banks to link new floating rate loans to retail borrowers and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to an external benchmark, starting 1 October.

    Among private sector banks, ICICI Bank (down 2.16%), Kotak Mahindra Bank (down 1.23%), Federal Bank (down 1.16%), IndusInd Bank (down 0.73%), HDFC Bank (down 0.57%) and RBL Bank (down 0.25%) declined. Axis Bank rose 0.36%.

    Among public sector banks, United Bank of India (down 2.36%), Corporation Bank (down 1.7%), Syndicate Bank (down 0.78%) and State Bank of India (down 0.65%) declined.

    Banks could see a drop in their net interest margins as they move to external benchmark-linked loan products.

    Punjab National Bank rose 2% after foreign credit rating agency Moody's affirmed bank's credit rating. Moody affirmed bank's credit ratings from Stable outlook to Positive. The rating was affirmed after anticipating that the bank's customer account's (BCA) will likely improve after the capital infusion from the government, along with improving its financial metrics.

    State-run Coal India surged 7% after signing MoUs with two Russian entities in the areas of coking coal mining in the Russian Far East and Arctic Region.

    State-run ONGC jumped 5.17% after the company said that its offshore crude supply remained unaffected by the recent fire accident in Mumbai unit. The company said that an unfortunate accident took place at Uran oil and gas processing plant in Mumbai on 3 September 2019.

    Hindalco Industries rose 1.68% after the company's US subsidiary Novelis reaffirmed its commitment to acquire Aleris. Novelis reaffirmed its full commitment to closing its proposed acquisition of Aleris Corporation, notwithstanding the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit to block the transaction. Novelis intends to vigorously defend against the DOJ's challenge, which it believes is without merit. The company is confident that the transaction will ultimately receive all necessary regulatory approvals in the U.S. and in other relevant jurisdictions.
