Share Market Updates: Indian stock indices ended convincingly in the green and climbed around 0.35% as PSU Bank and Energy led the rally with most indices ending in the green.

Retail inflation declined to 6.83% in August after touching a 15-month high of 7.44 per cent in July, mainly due to softening prices of vegetables, but still remains above the RBI's comfort zone.

Global equities mostly fell Wednesday ahead of a crunch US inflation report, with investors increasingly nervous that a recent spike in oil will put fresh upward pressure on consumer prices and force the Federal Reserve to lift interest rates again.

Indices gain 0.3% after a muted start with Nifty closing above 20,000 and Sensex adding 250 pts; PSU Bank and Energy shine; IT, Auto indices drag

Indian shares edged up in mid-day trade and ended higher on Wednesday after a lackluster start, led by gains in financials and energy stocks as investors bet on large-cap companies amid heightened volatility in small- and mid-caps after a record run.

Data released after the bell on Tuesday showed that India's retail inflation eased in August, while industrial output rose at its fastest pace in five months in July.

The Nifty 50 index climbed 75 pts to close at 200,70, while the S&P BSE Sensex rose 250 pts to close at 67,466. Thirteen of the 15 Nifty sectoral indices ended in the green in today's session.

Grasim and Coal India jumped more than 3% each, followed by Tata Consumer Products, Bharti Airtel and Titan. HDFC Life, M&M, Adani Ports, L&T and Cipla dropped more than a per cent each and were the biggest laggards.

Most sectoral indices ended in the green with PSU Bank gaining more than 3%. Energy and Media indices also gained around a per cent with other Bank and Finance indices ending with reasonable gains. Auto and IT indices shed and ended in the red.

Stocks retreated Wednesday in Europe and Asia and oil prices rose ahead of a key report on U.S. inflation that could sway the Federal Reserve's future decisions on interest rates.

Japan's Nikkei share average ended lower in range-bound trade ahead of a key U.S. inflation report, but losses were limited as investors bought value shares that can withstand higher rates. The Nikkei fell 0.21% and the broader Topix declined 0.5%.

China stocks closed down on Wednesday tracking weaker Asian markets, as investors braced for key U.S. inflation data and more clues about Beijing's stimulus measures to help the world's second-largest economy.

China's blue-chip CSI 300 Index was down 0.6% at close, while the Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.5%. Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index slipped 0.1% and the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index declined 0.4%.

European stock markets dropped at the start of trading as investors awaited key US inflation data. London's FTSE 100 opened lower after data showed economic output in July contracted at the fastest pace this year, sparking recessionary concerns, while shares of oil giant BP fell after its CEO resigned.

China flagged security problems with iPhones while saying it isn’t barring purchases, the government’s first comments on the topic after news reports that authorities are moving to restrict the use of Apple Inc. products in sensitive departments and state-owned companies.

“We noticed that there have been many media reports about security incidents concerning Apple phones," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning said Wednesday at a regular press briefing in Beijing, without elaborating.

China plans to expand a ban on the use of iPhones to a plethora of state-backed companies and agencies, Bloomberg News has reported, a sign of growing challenges for Apple in its biggest foreign market and global production base. Several agencies have begun instructing staff not to bring their iPhones to work. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Geojit Financial Services views on the impact of Rising Crude Prices on India's Economy and Stock Market

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: Rising crude prices positively impact oil exporters and negatively impact oil importing countries like India. Every 10-dollar rise in Brent crude prices widens India’s Current Account Deficit by 0.5%. Consequently, this depreciates the INR and leads to imported inflation. Also, rising crude prices impact the profit margins of companies that use oil as input. So, the impact on the stock market will be negative. But now in India, the markets are ignoring the rising crude prices. The reason is that the positive impact of good GDP growth, decent corporate earnings and sustained fund flows to the market is neutralising the negative impact of rising crude. The situation might change if Brent crude rises to $100."

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Sharp Decline in UK Economy in July Revives Risk of Recession

The UK economy shrank at the fastest pace in seven months in July as strikes and wet weather hit activity harder than expected, reviving fears that a recession may be underway.

Gross domestic product slipped by 0.5% following a 0.5% gain in June, the Office for National Statistics said Wednesday. Economists had expected a contraction of 0.2%. Services, construction and manufacturing all shrank.

Britain’s economy, which the Bank of England expects to stagnate at best for much of the next two years, is now losing steam in the face of a sharp increase in borrowing costs. That may give policymakers pause for thought when they decide next week whether to raise interest rates again in their fight to tame inflation. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Sugar output in India's Maharashtra set to fall to lowest in 4 yrs after dry August

Sugar output in Maharashtra, India's top producing state, is likely to fall 14% in the 2023/24 crop year to its lowest in four years due to lower cane yields following the driest August in more than a century, industry and government officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

The reduced output could add to food inflation and discourage New Delhi from allowing sugar exports, supporting global prices which are already near their highest in more than a decade.

Higher domestic prices will, however, improve margins for producers such as Balrampur Chini, Dwarikesh Sugar , Shree Renuka Sugars and Dalmia Bharat Sugar, helping them make payments on time to farmers. (Reuters)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: RBI likely to hold repo rate, focus on falling inflation trajectory over the rate of inflation: Economists

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: TIW CAPITAL views n  CPI and IIP data: Central bank will remain cautious given that global crude benchmark

Mohit Ralhan, CEO - TIW CAPITAL on Consumer Price Index Data CPI and Index of Industrial Production Data IIP: Inflation declined to 6.8% YoY in August from 7.4% in the previous month as food inflation moved lower. Vegetable prices which had led to the higher reading in July declined 5.9% MoM. Cereals and pulses, the other major contributing categories, only saw a marginal rise sequentially. The food price index as a whole witnessed a sequential decline. Fuel inflation also remained in check despite rising global crude oil prices. The better-than-expected inflation data means that RBI will continue to hold the policy rate at its upcoming meeting. Core inflation hasn’t inched higher due to the transitory shock from vegetable prices. But the central bank will remain cautious given that global crude benchmark, Brent is holding above USD 90/bl, and rainfall has been less than normal in August

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Geojit Financial Services views on today's market: More selling in the broader market and buying in large-caps is likely in the near term

Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: Market experts have been repeatedly warning of froth in the mid-and small-cap segments. And, the fear of sharp correction in this space has finally happened with 4.10 percent correction in the Nifty Small-cap index and 3.07 percent correction in the Nifty Mid-cap index. Even after this correction, fundamentals do not support the valuations in these segments. Therefore, more pain is likely.

On the other hand, high-quality large-caps in banking, capital goods and IT are on stronger wicket. More selling in the broader market and buying in large-caps is likely in the near term.

Even though the undercurrent of the market is strong, fundamentals do not support a sustained rally. Crude at $92 is a big macro concern. The market is ignoring this headwind.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Reaction on IIP and CPI data by Shlok Srivastav

Shlok Srivastav, Co-founder & COO, Appreciate, a fintech platform for Savings & Investment: The overall retail inflation rate of 6.83% for August comes as a much-needed point of relief after the 7.44% rate that we saw in July. Given that the government has stepped in to curb rice and tomato exports, a gradual reduction in inflation in September and beyond is to be expected. As for the IIP data, the industrial output growth of 5.7% in July, up from 3.7% a month earlier, is extremely heartening. Mining has made a particularly impressive comeback, with its output standing at 10.7%, compared to -3.3% a year prior. Power production has also done well, with a growth rate of 8%, compared to 2.3% a year prior. Overall, these numbers bode well, under the assumption that seasonal factors normalise themselves. Once inflation has been steadied, the RBI should be able to bring it back to its usual comfort zone of 2-6%.

Om Mehra, Equity research analyst, Choice Broking: The Asian market was trading in a mixed note after US markets closed lower on Tuesday.

The IT and FMCG sectors may remain on the radar for today’s session.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Byju’s Hid $533 Million in Hedge Fund Once Run From Miami IHOP, Lenders Allege: Bloomberg

One of India’s hottest tech companies, Byju’s, allegedly hid $533 million in an obscure three-year-old hedge fund that once said its principal place of business was an IHOP pancake restaurant in Miami, according to lenders trying to recover the cash.

Byju’s last year transferred more than half a billion dollars to Camshaft Capital Fund, the investment firm founded by William C. Morton when he was just 23 years old, some Byju’s lenders claim in a lawsuit. Morton’s fund received the money despite an apparent lack of formal training in investing, according to the lenders. What’s more, luxury cars — a 2023 Ferrari Roma, a 2020 Lamborghini Huracán EVO, and a 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith — have been registered in Morton’s name since the transfer occurred, according to court papers.

The allegations are the latest twist in an increasingly public battle between Byju’s, an India-based education tech firm, and lenders who claim the $533 million is collateral for a $1.2 billion loan. The two sides have been trading accusations about the loan, with lenders claiming it is in default and Byju’s accusing lenders of predatory tactics.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Oil sizzles at 10-month high on Saudi, Russia output cuts, OPEC upbeat on demand; Brent over $91/bbl

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Maruti, Hyundai expect record festive sales this year amid concerns over high interest rates, deficient monsoon

Maruti Suzuki India and Hyundai Motor expect record festive sales this year amid concerns over high interest rates and the likelihood of deficient monsoon affecting rural sentiments.

Speaking on the sidelines of the annual SIAM Convention here, Maruti Suzuki India Senior Executive Officer, Marketing & Sales, Shashank Srivastava said that on average, the festive season accounts for about 23-26 per cent of the industry's annual sales.

This fiscal, the total expected PV sales is 40.5-41 lakh, and 25 per cent of it means that the festive season sales this year would cross the 10 lakh sales mark.

"This is the first time it will cross the 1 million mark. The previous peak was 9.34 lakh in 2021, which had two things going for it. It had 92 days of festive seasons and there was a pent-up demand due to Covid-19 induced lockdown in Q1 (of the year)," Srivastava said.

For MSI, he stated that the company has witnessed a 24 per cent (year-on-year) increase in Onam sales this year. 

Hyundai Motor India COO Tarun Garg said the automaker expects around 9 per cent year-on-year growth in sales volume in the festive season.

"We are expecting that this year, we should log in around 9 per cent growth over last year," he noted when asked about the company's expected performance in the 83 days period. (PTI)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Retail inflation slows to 6.83% as vegetable prices decline

Retail inflation moderated to 6.83% in August from a 15-month high of 7.44% in July due to easing vegetable prices, offering a measure of relief to the Indian central bank and bond investors.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Wall Street ends lower on Tuesday on weak Oracle forecast, jitters about high oil prices

Wall Street stocks ended lower on Tuesday as surging oil prices deepened worries about persistent price pressures ahead of crucial inflation readings this week, while Oracle slumped after a downbeat forecast.

Oracle shares tumbled to their lowest since June after the cloud-services provider forecast current-quarter revenue below targets and narrowly missed first-quarter expectations.

Cloud-computing heavyweights and Microsoft also fell, pressured by Oracle's weak forecast and by a rise in U.S. Treasury yields.

Oil prices jumped more than 1%, building on a recent rally and stoking worries that sticky inflation could mean U.S. interest rates stay higher longer in the aftermath of strong economic data.

the S&P 500 lost 25.52 points, or 0.57%, to end at 4,461.94 points, while the Nasdaq Composite lost 144.28 points, or 1.04%, to 13,773.62. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 14.37 points, or 0.04%, to 34,649.35. (Reuters)
