    On the macro front, growth in India's manufacturing sector lost momentum in October 2017. The Nikkei India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to 50.3 in October 2017, from 51.2 in September 2017. This indicated a broad stagnation in the health of the manufacturing sector during October. At the sector level, improvements in consumer goods negated deteriorations in investment and intermediate goods. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable, below 50 an overall decrease. The data was unveiled during trading hours on Wednesday, 1 November 2017.

    India's eight core infrastructure sector, carrying 40.27% of the weight of items included in the index of industrial production (IIP), has shown healthy 5.2% increase in its output in September 2017 over September 2016. Its cumulative growth was 3.3% in April-September 2017. The data was disclosed after market hours on Tuesday, 31 October 2017.

    Data released on 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.

    The World Bank, after market hours on Tuesday, 31 October 2017, released the Doing Business (DB) Report, 2018. India ranks 100 among 190 countries assessed by the Doing Business Team. India has leapt 30 ranks over its rank of 130 in the Doing Business Report 2017.

    The World Bank report recognized India as one of the top 10 improvers in this year's assessment, having implemented reforms in 8 out of 10 Doing Business indicators. India is the only large country this year to have achieved such a significant shift. On the "distance to frontier metric," one of the key indicators in the survey, India's score went from 56.05 in Doing Business 2017 to 60.76 in Doing Business 2018. This means last year India improved its business regulations in absolute terms – indicating that the country is continuing its steady shift towards best practice in business regulation.

    The report noted that India has adopted 37 reforms since 2003. Nearly half of these reforms have been implemented in the last four years. The report captured reforms implemented in 190 countries in the period 2 June 2016 to 1 June 2017.

    The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi hailed India's historic jump of 30 ranks in the World Bank's Doing Business Report, 2018. While terming the improvement in the rankings as historic, the Prime Minister in a series of tweets, said that the jump is the outcome of the all-round and multi-sectoral reform push of Team India. Modi promised to take steps to further improve the rankings.

    On the global front, the US Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged, but referred to the US economy in positive terms. The US central bank, in its statement following a two-day meeting, said economic activity has been picking up at a solid rate, versus the moderate rate that it had referenced in September. The rosier view of the economy also suggests that it is on track to hike interest rates in December, as has been widely expected.

    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.

    An official gauge of China's factory activity edged down in October, indicating softening business activity after hitting a more-than-five-year high in September. The official manufacturing purchasing managers' index fell to 51.6 in October from 52.4 in September, government data showed. Separately, China's official nonmanufacturing purchasing managers' index, a measure of activity outside of factory gates, fell to 54.3 in October from 55.4 in September, the National Bureau of Statistics said
