Share Market Updates: Bank and NBFC stocks, as predicted, came under pressure on Friday and dragged the benchmark indices with IT also contributing to the pressure.
The RBI on Thursday tightened norms for personal loans and credit cards in the form of higher capital requirements. The new norms will make personal loans and credit cards costlier and may curb growth in these categories.
Asian shares took a breather on Friday as a batch of softer U.S. economic data took some of the steam out of Wall Street, but also boosted bonds in a big way while slugging oil prices in a boon for the inflation outlook.
Indices end in red as Bank, Finance stocks come under pressure after RBI tightened norms on loans and credit cards; FMCG and Pharma shine
Indian shares dropped on Friday as a drag in financials and banking stocks after the country's central bank tightened consumer lending rules offset a rally triggered by easing U.S. interest rate outlook and drop in oil prices.

Asian stocks were mostly lower on Friday after Wall Street drifted to a mixed finish as momentum slowed following a strong rally in the first half of November.
Japan's Nikkei share average rose to book its third straight winning week, helped by a strong domestic earnings season that just wrapped up.

Sensex Today Live: Tankers newly sanctioned by US supplied Russian oil to India
Three oil tankers, newly sanctioned by Washington, regularly shipped Sokol crude from Russia's Far East to Indian Oil Corp, the country's top refiner, in recent months, according to shiptracking data from LSEG, Kpler and trade sources.
The U.S. on Thursday imposed sanctions on maritime companies and vessels for shipping Russian oil sold above the Group of Seven's price cap, as Washington seeks to close loopholes in the mechanism designed to punish Moscow for its war in Ukraine.
The Liberian-flagged ships hit with sanctions are the Kazan, Ligovsky Prospect and NS Century, according to the Treasury Department.
All three Aframax-sized tankers discharged Russian Sokol crude in India in September while two of them made the trip in October, the data showed.
In the short-term, sanctions may reduce the number of ships carrying Russian oil and prompt India to seek supplies elsewhere, but they are unlikely to stop the trade altogether due to its lucrative nature, several traders who declined to be named, said. (Reuters)

Sensex Today Live: Rich Nations Hit Overdue $100 Billion Climate Fund Goal in 2022
Rich countries finally hit a long-overdue goal to provide $100 billion of climate finance to poor countries last year, a symbolic target that could help build trust ahead of the COP28 summit in Dubai in two weeks time.
Data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development showed that developed countries had provided $89.6 billion in 2021 and that the $100 billion goal — originally due to have been reached by 2020 — looks likely to have been met last year.
While that figure pales in comparison to the trillions of dollars that are needed to help developing nations decarbonize their economies and adapt to a warming world, it is still a symbolic milestone that the likes of the US and the EU hope unlocks progress in other areas, such as slashing CO2 emissions.

Sensex Today | Share Market Updates: UK Retail Sales Post Surprise Fall as Rate Hikes Bite
UK retail sales fell unexpectedly in October, adding to the impression that a string of interest-rate hikes designed to beat down inflation is beginning to stymie economic activity.
The volume of goods sold online and in store dropped 0.3%, the Office for National Statistics said Friday. That follows a downwardly revised 1.1% decline in September, when unusually warm weather held back spending on clothing.
Economists were expecting a rise of 0.4% for October. Instead, sales fell to their lowest since February 2021 when Covid restrictions were in place, with retailers citing the cost-of-living crisis and bad weather for the poor performance. It bodes ill for the “golden quarter," the run-up to Christmas when stores can make a majority of their yearly profits. (Bloomberg)

■ The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), in line with its governor’s cautious approach, has increased the risk weight on consumer credit/loans to NBFCs by ~25%.

Sensex Today: Geojit Financial Services on Implications of RBI's Risk Weight Increase on Banking Sector, NBFCs and Customer
Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: The immediate impact of the RBI action to increase the risk weight on certain categories of unsecured loans, loans to NBFCs and credit card loans is that this will increase the capital requirements of banks, which, in turn, will increase their cost of capital. Since the credit demand in segments like unsecured retail loans is robust, banks can easily pass on the increased cost to borrowers. So, there will be a marginal increase in the cost of credit to borrowers. The impact on banks’ profitability will be negligible.
From the perspective of macro financial stability this is a welcome decision."

Mid-market comment by SAS Online: In the case of Nifty, the support range is positioned between 19625 and 19700, with a robust buying range extending from 19525 to 19575
Shrey Jain, Founder and CEO SAS Online: On Friday, the Indian stock market experienced a mixed performance as a decline in financial stocks, following the tightening of consumer lending rules by the country's central bank, counteracted the positive impact of a rally fueled by a more favorable U.S. interest rate outlook and a decrease in oil prices. The central bank implemented a 25 percent increase in the risk weight on consumer loans issued by banks and non-banking financial companies (NBFCs).
In the case of Nifty, the support range is positioned between 19625 and 19700, with a robust buying range extending from 19525 to 19575. In the higher range, Nifty may encounter resistance levels at 19875-19950.
For Bank Nifty, the initial support zone is identified as 43900-44050, followed by a stronger support range at 43625-43800. In the higher range, a formidable resistance is anticipated at 44500-44700.
Sensex Today: Indian Lenders’ Tech Challenges Thwart Push to Grab Market Share
Indian lenders’ ambition to expand their digital reach and capture a larger share of business in the world’s most populous nation risk being frustrated by outdated technology, regulations and a talent crunch.
The country’s largest shadow lender Bajaj Finance Ltd. was directed on Wednesday to stop offering credit via two products that failed to comply with digital lending rules. Earlier this week, state-run UCO Bank temporarily suspended its online instant payments system after some accounts were credited without the lender actually receiving the money. And Bank of Baroda, one of the largest state-backed lenders, is probing irregularities related to the onboarding of customers to its mobile app.
The technology challenges, which also include clunky legacy systems, difficulties in integrating data and problems finding talent to build systems, come as competition increases for deposits and to form stickier customer relationships. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: China Is Sailing Its Way Through a Record Year of Debt Sales
There’s a 1.5 trillion yuan ($207 billion) question weighing on Chinese bond traders’ minds right now: How will Beijing sell that much debt with just six weeks left in the year?
The answer is the People’s Bank of China, the world’s only major central bank on a policy easing path, and a slowing economy that sustains voracious appetite for risk-free assets.
China has issued 9.6 trillion yuan of government bonds so far in 2023, against an estimated annual target of 11.1 trillion yuan, according to Bloomberg’s calculations of Orient Securities Co.’s data. This year’s issuance plan, which would be a record, includes 1 trillion yuan of additional sovereign notes approved last month for disaster relief and climate projects.
The world’s second-largest bond market has mostly taken the deluge of bonds in its stride, a testament to the success of the PBOC’s interest rate cuts and periodic pump priming. There have been hiccups with a brief liquidity squeeze in October, while Chinese banks had also rushed to sell short-term debt to raise cash, underlining the challenge for the central bank.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Oil Sinks Into Bear Market as Robust Supply Pressures OPEC
Oil headed for a fourth weekly loss after sinking into a bear market as signs of healthy supplies and rising stockpiles offset attempts by OPEC leaders Saudi Arabia and Russia to keep declines in check.
West Texas Intermediate traded near $73 a barrel after dropping more than 20% from a high in September. Global benchmark Brent plunged almost 5% on Thursday. The declines followed a build in US crude inventories, and were likely amplified by automated selling programs.
Crude’s run of four straight weekly declines — the longest losing streak since May — has come despite collective and voluntary supply cuts by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies. The losses have also been abetted by the evaporation of an Israel-Hamas war risk premium as fears the conflict would expand and disrupt oil supplies have so far not eventuated. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today: Geojit Financial views on today's market: The RBI action raising the risk weighting on unsecured loans is sentiment negative for financials.
Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: There are some important trends which will impact the market in the near-term. One, the big macro driver of this two day rally in the market - peaking and declining US bond yields - is very much in place. This will continue to impart resilience to the market. Two, the sharp decline in Brent crude to $ 77.5 is a positive for India’s macros and favourable for sectors that consume petroleum inputs like aviation, tyres and paints. Three, and this is a negative factor, the RBI action raising the risk weighting on unsecured loans is sentiment negative for financials."
It is important to understand that FIIs turning buyers is an important shift in tune with the declining bond yields in the US. In the near-term, IT, automobiles, telecom and construction-related segments will attract more buying since financials will see the temporary impact of the RBI action.

Sensex Today: MRG Capital prediction for today's markets: RBI tightening norms in terms of capital requirements will be the main driving point for markets today
Manu Rishi Guptha, Founder and CEO of MRG Capital: RBI tightening norms on Personal loans, Credit card debt of banks and NBFCs and on NBFC loans of banks in terms of capital requirements will be the main driving point for markets today. Markets are expected to react negatively as these loans are the major loan growth drivers for banks and NBFCs particularly in the last two quarters. The increased capital restrictions by RBI will increase costs and so will lead to higher interest rates further leading to drop in demand for these loans. Private banks and NBFCs might feel the heat the most and Public sector banks less so as these loans form a lesser part of their book. Apart from Bank Nifty, Nifty too might see some pressure as these RBI restrictions will hit the consumption boom in the country to some level.
Falling crude prices will offer some support to the markets but this is negative for big index stocks like Reliance and ONGC. Completion of Diwali festive period and quarterly result releases leave the market with no fresh triggers for continued upside momentum. So, today’s bad news from RBI will most likely be used by short term traders to book profits gained in the last few sessions in the market.
19580 might offer some support to Nifty. If broken, Nifty can test 19460 and find further support at 19300. For Bank Nifty, 43800 is possible at the open and any further selling pressure can take it to 43300 levels.

The rupee's rally to near 83 earlier this week faced significant resistance. (Reuters)

The latest labour market figures follow weaker-than-expected prints on consumer and producer price inflation, which indicated more than a year of rate hikes were having the desired effects. (AFP)
