  • Sensex, Nifty end with minor gains; RIL, IT shares advance

    The benchmark indices ended a tad above the flat line on Tuesday. IT shares bucked weak broader sentiment. The S&P BSE Sensex, rose 31.71 points or 0.08% at 40,625.51. The Nifty 50 index added 3.55 points or 0.03% at 11,934.50.

    Reliance Industries (up 1.95%), Infosys (up 2.27%) and Kotak Mahindra Bank (up 2.40%) supported the indices while ICICI Bank (down 1.91%), HDFC Bank (down 1.26%) and HDFC (down 1.17%) dragged.

    The gains were capped as India's retail inflation in September rose above the RBI's comfort level, while industrial output continued to contract in August, official data showed on Monday. The RBI MPC has given the mandate to maintain annual inflation at 4% until 31 March 2021, with an upper tolerance of 6% and a lower tolerance of 2%. Negative global stocks also put pressure domestic indices.

    The broader market declined. The BSE Mid-Cap index fell 0.29% and the BSE Small-Cap index lost 0.12%.

    Sellers outpaced the buyers. On the BSE, 1147 shares rose and 1486 shares fell. A total of 181 shares were unchanged.

    The Nifty has risen 6.35% in nine sessions. It has surged 1128.95 points, or 10.45% from its recent closing low of 10,805.55 on 24 September 2020.


    India reported 8,38,729 active cases of COVID-19 infection and 1,09,856 deaths while 62,27,295 patients have been discharged, according to the data from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. Total COVID-19 confirmed cases worldwide stood at 37,745,942 with 1,079,963 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.


    India's industrial output contracted for the sixth straight month in August, due to lower output of manufacturing, mining and power generation sectors. Data released on Index of Industrial Production (IIP) by the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation on Monday showed the index had contracted 8% in August compared with a fall 10.77% in July. The data further showed that, manufacturing sector production had registered a decline of 8.6%, while the output of mining and power segments fell 9.8% and 1.8%, respectively.

    India's retail inflation jumped to its highest in eight months in September on the back of rising food prices. The Consumer Price Index-based inflation stood at 7.34% last month compared with 6.69% in August. Inflation in the food and beverages category stood at 9.73% in September against 8.29% in August, led by higher prices of vegetables, pulses, meat and fish.

    Meanwhile, the GST Council on Monday failed to reach any consensus for the second time in a week over compensating states for shortfall in GST collections. The meeting, chaired by finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman, was a continuation of the 42nd GST Council meet held last week.

    Addressing the media after the meeting, Nirmala Sitharaman said that the Centre cannot borrow and pay states for the shortfall, it is the States that need to borrow since it would lead to rise in bond yields, resulting in rise in borrowing costs for the government and the private sector.

    Numbers to Watch:

    The yield on 10-year benchmark federal paper rose to 5.904% as compared with 5.899% at close in the previous trading session.

    In the foreign exchange market, the rupee edged lower against the dollar. The partially convertible rupee was hovering at 73.3550, compared with its close of 73.28 during the previous trading session.

    In the commodities market, Brent crude for December 2020 settlement rose 72 cents at $42.44 a barrel. The contract fell $1.13, or 2.64% to settle at $41.72 a barrel in the previous trading session.

    Foreign Markets:

    The US Dow Jones index was down 99.5 points, indicating a negative opening in the US market today.

    European indices declined while Asian stocks ended mixed on Tuesday. Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing announced Tuesday that trading in the securities and derivatives markets, including after-hours futures trading, have been cancelled for the full day due to the typhoon.

    Investors were awaiting earnings season to kick off in the US, while watching the latest China data and coronavirus developments.

    China reported strong trade data in September as most business activity resumed in the world's second-largest economy, following the worst of the coronavirus pandemic.

    For September, China's imports surged 13.2% in US dollar terms, according to official customs data on Tuesday. Exports rose 9.9% from a year ago. The country imported and exported a record amount of goods in yuan-denominated terms in September. In the third quarter, China's exports rose 10.2% from a year ago to 5 trillion yuan ($742.9 billion). Imports rose 4.3% to 3.88 trillion yuan during that time.

    The US stock market finished higher for fourth straight session on Monday, as investors bought technology giants and shifted their focus to corporate earnings starting this week. The moves come against the backdrop of the looming U.S. presidential election and stalled talks for another round of coronavirus stimulus.

    With less than three weeks to the presidential election, investors are now focusing on the outlook for the Democratic Party controlling both the White House and Congress.

    Prospects for another fiscal stimulus package appeared to have simmed, as Democrats over the weekend rejected a $1.9 trillion proposal from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, representing the Trump administration's most generous aid proposal thus far.

    Buzzing Indian Segment:

    Cement stocks surged after a foreign brokerage reportedly indicated an improving demand outlook. According to reports, the brokerage said that the improving demand may pave the way for an increase in cement prices which had corrected between 2-5% in the second quarter.

    UltraTech Cements (up 1.8%), Ambuja Cements (up 1.47%), Grasim Industries (up 0.85%), Birla Corporation (up 0.78%) and ACC (up 0.53%) advanced.

    Cement stocks also rallied after finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday announced an additional budget of Rs 25,000 crore (in addition to Rs 4.13 lakh crore given in Budget 2020-21) to be provided for capital expenditure on roads, defence, water supply, urban development and domestically produced capital equipment.

    Cipla fell 3.25%. The drug major said that its step-down US-based subsidiary received complete response letter (CRL) from the US drug regulator for IV Trambol.
