Share Market Updates: Indian shares ended in the red despite Metal stocks gaining after markets cheered China's approval of a mega sovereign bond issue as a sign of stimulus. IT and Finance stocks dragged the most with most sectors ending in the red.

Shares in Asia pushed higher after the government stepped up support for China’s economy and stock trading, buoying optimism. Metals rallied.

Oil steadied after falling more than 6% over the previous three sessions on signs the Israel-Hamas war will remain contained for the time being.

The 10-year Treasury yield eased on Tuesday after hitting its highest level since 2007 a day before and was at 4.82%.

Indices close 0.8% lower with  Sensex and Nifty tanking by 500 and 150 pts, respectively. Infosys, Airtel and IndusInd Bank drag

The Indian stock market continued its downward slide despite positive global cues and a decent start. The first half witnessed the indices playing around the previous close but tumbled sharply in the second half to close around 0.8% down.

BSE S&P 30 Sensex ended 522 points down to close at 64,049, while the broader Nifty 50 closed at 19,122, a drop of 160 points. Thirteen of the 15 broad-based sectoral indices closed in the red.

Metals gained 1.5% at the start after top consumer China approved a trillion-yuan sovereign bond issue to improve infrastructure; however, fell sharply in the second half to end with just minor gains. PSU Bank also ended in the green. All the other indices ended in the red with Finance, IT, Realty and Media witnessing massive sell-off.

Tata Steel, Maruti Suzuki, and SBI topped the charts. NTPC, Infosys, Bharti Airtel, ICICI Bank and Tata Motors were among the biggest laggards and bottomed the charts.

Most markets rose Wednesday after China unveiled plans for $137 billion in extra debt to boost infrastructure spending, while oil extended losses on hopes that Israel will scale back its plans for a Gaza ground invasion.

Japan's Nikkei share average rose, continuing its rebound from a three-week low, as it tracked overnight gains on Wall Street, while Beijing's 1 trillion yuan ($136.8 billion) fiscal package provided an additional tailwind. The Nikkei ended the day up 0.67%.

Chinese stocks rose after the country's top parliamentary body approved an additional 1 trillion yuan ($137 billion) sovereign bond issue to support the economy.

China A-shares had a mild rebound from 4-1/2-year lows. Blue-chip CSI 300 Index rose 0.5%, while the Shanghai Composite Index climbed 0.4%. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng Index gained 0.6%, snapping a four-day losing streak. The Hang Seng Tech surged 2.2%.

European shares shed as investors digested a slew of mixed earnings reports from the region, while weakness in energy firms on lower crude prices added to the declines.

UK's FTSE 100 slipped as a rise in industrial mining stocks was offset by a drop in shares of Reckitt after the company missed quarterly sales expectations.

Sensex Today Live: Crude price rise: Anand Rathi initiates coverage on ONGC, Oil India with up to 38% upside potential

Though we don’t expect them to flare up to FY23 highs, recovering demand and OPEC’s supply cuts would keep crude prices high and support upstream companies ONGC and Oil India, said brokerage house Anand Rathi in a recent report. It further added that risk-reward is favourable for this space.

Disturbances due to geo-political tensions, healthy product demand and low stocks would keep refining margins healthy, especially driven by strength in diesel and ATF. This would benefit Indian refiners as diesel and ATF make up over 60 percent of production, stated Anand Rathi. (Read More)

Sensex Today Live: Xi Steps Up Economic Aid With New Debt Issuance, PBOC Visit

Chinese President Xi Jinping stepped up support for the world’s second-biggest economy, issuing additional sovereign debt, raising the budget deficit ratio and even making an unprecedented visit to the central bank.

The nation’s legislature approved a plan to raise the fiscal deficit ratio for 2023 to about 3.8% of gross domestic product, the official Xinhua News Agency said Tuesday — well above the 3% set in March which the government has generally considered a limit for the nation. The plan includes issuing additional sovereign debt worth 1 trillion yuan ($137 billion) in the fourth quarter to support disaster relief and construction.

China has rarely adjusted the budget mid-year, having previously done so in periods including 2008, in the aftermath of the Sichuan earthquake and in the wake of the Asian financial crisis in the late 1990s. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live| Share Market Updates: Nifty 50 to Sensex: Why Indian stock market is falling today — explained

Stock market analysts noted that the Indian stock market displayed signs of purchasing activity today, initially triggered by the 10-year US treasury yield retracting from a 16-year high and falling below 5%. However, the US bond market has once again indicated buying interest, leading the 10-year US Treasury yield to surge, approaching the 5% mark once more. These experts highlighted several factors contributing to the decline of the Indian stock market, including the conflict in the Middle East, the strength of the US dollar, selling by Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs), disappointing Q2 2023 results, and mounting concerns about inflation.

Sensex Today: JM Financial views on L&T Finance Holdings 2QFY24 Result Update | Retail scale up continues

Sameer Bhise of JM Financial Institutions views on L&T Finance Holdings 2QFY24 Result Update | Retail scale up continues

BUY INR 145 

LTFH reported consolidated profit of INR5.95bn (+12% QoQ, 47% YoY) above our estimate of INR 5.9bn. NII stood at INR17.3bn (+5% QoQ, +11% YoY,+5.5% JMFe) and PPOP at INR13.2bn (+11% YoY/QoQ, +6% JMFe). Overall loan growth remained flat sequentially as retail assets grew sharply by (+8% QoQ, +33% YoY) which was offset by (-34% QoQ, -75% YoY) de-growth in wholesale book. Retail assets now form ~88% of total loans. Mgmt. remains confident on scaling up its retail portfolio to ~90% of the overall lending book by next quarter led by continued traction in its identified segments of consumer loans (+63% YoY), rural micro/group loans (+37% YoY) and home loans (+34% YoY). Reported NIMs improved +56 bps QoQ at 8.62% as yields moved up +49bps QoQ at 15.2% and CoFs remained steady at 7.8%(+2bps QoQ). Asset quality outcome was also favourable with 77bps QoQ decline in GS3 led by 311bps QoQ improvement in wholesale GS3 and 16bps QoQ improvement in retail GS3. Mgmt. believes focus on analytics, cross sell to existing customer base and continued investments in its tech prowess should aid LTFH in delivering its targeted RoA of 2.8-3% on an overall level (with GS3&lt;3%, NS3<1%). While LTFH’s scale up of retail portfolio is encouraging, valuation upsides are contingent on sustainable RoE improvement and continued steady asset quality under the new leadership. We build in RoAs of 2.4% by FY25E. Maintain BUY with a TP of INR 145(1.3x FY25e P/BV).

Avdhut Bagkar, Derivatives & Technical Analyst, StoxBox Outlook of Nifty and Nifty Bank ahead of Monthly expiry:  Despite Nifty and Nifty Bank opening in the green and remaining afloat, theta in CE is aggressively decaying. While both the indices defending their green territories, all PE buying has remained strong in the early hours of the session.

We are one day away from monthly expiry, and theta deterioration in CE is not painting a bright picture. To make a comeback, Nifty and Nifty Bank must cross 19,350 and 43430, respectively, to hold a reversal for tomorrow's session.

Conservative option traders must exercise caution, while aggressive behaviour may consider longs once successive intraday highs are exceeded.

Sensex Today Live: LKP Securities views on KOTAK MAHINDRA BANK Q2 results update

Kotak Mahindra Bank (KMB) reported stable 2QFY24 results with the key pointers being: a) Strong NII (up 24% YoY and 1% QoQ) and steady provisions, b) GNPA/NNPA ratio stable at 1.72%/0.37%, c) restructured pool inched down to 5.3bn (15bps of advances) v/s 6.1bn in the previous quarter, d) credit off-take strong with growth of 18.5% YoY and 6% sequentially, e) covid provision held at 3.2bn as of 2QFY24, provision write-back worth 160mn, f) the total contingent provisioning (covid + Standard + Specific) stood 0.55% of net advances, h) Total PCR (including covid, general and specific provision) stood ~110% of GNPL amount, g) Headline NIM inched down 42bps QoQ to 5.15%. Moreover, increased Opex (C/I at 46.5%) led to sequentially lower ROA of ~2.48%. However, we see a weakness in fixed rate saving account growth. It has relatively weak liability franchises (v/s peers: HDFCB and ICICIB) that will be tested in FY24E as deposit competition is intensifying. Nevertheless, asset quality provides comfort for lower credit cost. Hence, the peak ROA (~3% in 4QFY23) likely to settle at the historical range of 2.2 % - 2.4%. We recommend BUY factoring a best in class ROA of more than 2.5%.

Sensex Today: Pre-market comment by Choice Broking: Relative Strength Index (RSI) momentum indicator currently suggests some strength on the lower side

Mandar Bhojane, Research Analyst, Choice Broking's morning outlook for 25th Oct 2023: The Sensex and Nifty indices are set to open slightly lower today, as indicated by the GIFT Nifty trends, which show a loss of 30 points.

Recent market conditions have proven to be quite challenging. The benchmark indices are trading near support levels and have closed in the red for the fourth consecutive session.

The Nifty has dipped below crucial technical indicators, including the 20-day, 50-day, and 100-day Exponential Moving Averages, signaling bearish sentiment among investors. A key support level to monitor is at 19,200. If the Nifty breaches this level, it could potentially lead to a more significant market correction. On the flip side, 19,600 is expected to act as a resistance level, indicating potential hurdles for any upward movements.

Taking a deeper look at the market, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) momentum indicator currently suggests some strength on the lower side, hovering around the 35.95 level.

In a scenario with bearish trends in both the Nifty and Bank Nifty, it is advisable for market participants to exercise caution and adopt a more selective, stock-specific approach. Buying on dips may be a prudent strategy for managing investments in such conditions.

Sensex Today Live: Drop in oil prices, US yields to lift rupee to near 83/dollar

The Indian rupee is expected to climb on Wednesday following a further decline in oil prices on worries over demand and a pullback in U.S. Treasury yields.

Non-deliverable forwards indicate the rupee, resuming trade after Tuesday's holiday, will open at around 83.00-83.02 to the U.S. dollar, compared with 83.1925 in the previous session.

"You would have to expect that the dip (in USD/INR) would find buyers," a forex trader at a bank said.

"Today's price action will be interesting, in that we will come to know how decently dips will be received. The RBI (Reserve Bank of India) will remain the biggest factor."

The RBI has been supporting the rupee for several sessions, and the intervention has been particularly aggressive in recent days. (Reuters)

Sensex Today Live: Oil Steady After Three-Day Streak of Losses as War Fears Ease

Oil steadied after falling over the previous three sessions on signs that the Israel-Hamas war will remain contained for the time being.

Global benchmark Brent was near $88 a barrel, erasing about half of the gains since Hamas’ attack on Oct. 7, while West Texas Intermediate fell below $84 a barrel. The US and Saudi Arabia agreed to pursue diplomatic efforts to maintain stability across the Middle East, the White House said Tuesday, helping to ease fears of major disruptions to the oil market.

Crude spiked in the initial stages of the war on concerns the conflict would escalate, potentially threatening exports from Iran and leading to attacks on tankers in key shipping routes. Those fears have ebbed in recent sessions, with growing calls within Israel to rethink the scope of a ground invasion of Gaza, although the risk of further disruption remains. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Microsoft's AI bets boost cloud business, Alphabet yet to find silver lining

Google-parent Alphabet's cloud business suffered as long-time rival Microsoft's took off in the September quarter, demonstrating early signs that the Windows maker's investment in artificial intelligence was paying off.

Alphabet's shares fell 7% in after hours trading on Tuesday. Microsoft's rose 5%.

The drop in Alphabet's shares, despite it beating Wall Street estimates for overall profit and sales, showed investors wanted it to deliver gains in artificial intelligence and demonstrate it remained competitive against Microsoft's Azure and Amazon.com's AWS cloud businesses.

"While a single quarter doesn't a major trend make, this quarter's cloud results ... suggest that Azure is gaining share against its competition," said Bob O'Donnell, chief analyst at TECHnalysis Research.

"In addition, it could be that Microsoft's very strong messaging on their Copilots and GenAI technology is getting companies to consider them in a more serious way."

Microsoft has emerged as an AI frontrunner, largely due to its substantial investment into startup OpenAI, the maker of hit product generative AI chatbot ChatGPT. (Reuters)
