    Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) rose 5.63% to Rs 1577 crore in Q2 September 2017 over Q2 September 2016, on account of higher aluminium volumes and supportive macro factors, partly offset by higher input costs and lower volumes in copper segment.

    Separately, Hindalco's overseas arm Novelis reported strong Q2 September 2017 results yesterday, 2 November 2017. On a consolidated basis, Novelis reported net income of $307 million in Q2 September 2017, compared to a net loss of $89 million in Q2 September 2016.

    On the macro front, data released today, 3 November 2017 showed that the seasonally adjusted Nikkei India Services Purchasing Managers' Business Activity Index rose to 51.7 in October from 50.7 in September. The Indian service sector's recovery following the implementation of the goods and services tax (GST) gathered pace as the sector observed a faster rise in activity, underpinned by greater inflows of new business. Increased capacity pressures led to firms raising staffing levels for the second month in succession.

    Overseas, European shares were trading higher as earnings weighed on shares in French bank Societe Generale and Dutch telecoms firms Altice, though gains for tech stocks and carmakers limited losses. Meanwhile, the Bank of England (BoE) raised its key interest rate by a quarter-percentage point to 0.5%, meeting widely held expectations for the first rate increase to be enacted since July 2007. There remain considerable risks to the outlook, which include the response of households, businesses and financial markets to developments related to the process of EU withdrawal, BoE said in a statement, referring to Britain's plan to exit the European Union, or Brexit.

    Asian stocks were trading mixed. Markets in Japan were closed for Culture Day. Activity in China's service sector expanded at a faster pace in October, a private gauge showed today, 3 November 2017, in contrast with official data showing a slower pace of growth.

    In US, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at a record yesterday, 2 November 2017, but the other main benchmarks saw muted moves, as investors parsed through tax reform details.

    House Republicans released details of a highly-anticipated tax-reform plan although market moves were subdued. The corporate tax rate would be reduced to 20% from 35% under the plan, which also aims to lower the number of income tax brackets. Hopes for tax cuts have been credited for some market gains over the past year.

    Trump announced that Jerome Powell, Federal Reserve Governor, would become the chairman of the Federal Reserve when current Chair Janet Yellen steps down at the end of her term in February. The move had been mostly expected by investors.
