Google loses appeal against record EU antitrust fine
The European Union's second-highest court on Wednesday overwhelmingly upheld the EU's record fine against Google over its Android operating system for mobile phones, slightly reducing the fee for technical reasons.
In a statement, the EU's General court said it "largely confirms the commission's decision that Google imposed unlawful restrictions on manufacturers of Android mobile devices" in order to benefit its search engine.
The court, however, said the fine should be slightly reduced to 4.125 billion euros ($4.1 billion), instead of the 4.3 billion euros decided by the commission in 2018 after reviewing the duration of the infringement.
The levy remains the EU's biggest ever despite Google's arguments that the commission's case was unfounded and falsely relied on accusations it imposed its search engine and Chrome browser on Android phones. (AFP)

UK inflation rate slips from 40-year high with drop in petrol prices
Britain’s inflation rate eased from its highest rate in four decades after petrol declined, but still leaving the pace of price increases uncomfortably high for the Bank of England.
The Consumer Prices Index rose 9.9% from a year ago last month from 10.1% in July, the Office for National Statistics said Wednesday. Economists had expecting a reading of 10%.
The reading may fan speculation that inflation has already peaked, relieving some of the pressure on the central bank to act. Prime Minister Liz Truss announced plans to freeze an increase in energy bills due to hit households in consumers, a move economists say will prevent a further spike in prices this winter but keep inflation strong well into next year.

Oil drops on concern demand will slump as Fed battles inflation
Oil retreated on concern that a further round of severe US monetary tightening to combat inflation will hurt demand, and an industry report pointed to a hefty increase in American commercial stockpiles.
West Texas Intermediate fell below $87 a barrel after a volatile session on Tuesday, when prices were buffeted by data showing elevated US inflation, and a possible Biden administration plan to refill strategic reserves. Crude’s latest drop came with losses in equities and other commodities including copper.
Oil hit the lowest since January earlier this month as traders attempted to price in a possible global slowdown, tighter monetary policy, and lower energy demand. The hotter-than-expected US inflation figures have set the scene for another round of aggressive hikes from the Federal Reserve, as well as further gains in the dollar, which is already near a record. There’s growing concern that the US central bank may tip the world’s largest economy into recession. (Bloomberg)
INDIA BONDS-Bond yields rise as inflation stokes rout in U.S. Treasuries
Indian government bond yields rose on Wednesday following an overnight selloff in U.S. Treasuries, stirred by fears that the Federal Reserve will deliver more super-sized rate hikes.
The benchmark 10-year government bond yield was at 7.1504% by 0504 GMT, up from 7.1077% in the previous session.
There is a "a bit of correction" on the back of U.S. bond reaction to the inflation data, but index inclusion bets will keep the yield differentials between U.S. and India low, said a trader at a private sector bank.
The difference between the 10-year U.S. and India is hovering near its lowest level since 2009. Large Fed rate hikes alongside expectations of Indian bonds being included into global indexes have led to the yield difference falling to around 370 basis points. (Reuters)

Angel One recommendation on market: Focus more on stock-specific movements
Sameet Chavan, chief analyst-technical and derivatives, Angel One Ltd: Nifty surpassing 18000 this time wasn’t a surprise, because the way our market behaved in the last week or so, things were pretty evident. Additionally, the global markets have been supportive for the last 4 – 5 days, which provided the much-needed push. Now, heavyweight constituents seem to have slipped into a consolidation mode, and hence, we are not seeing the following momentum in key indices. However, the market is not at all short of any action if we take a glance at the broader market. We reiterate that one can continue to remain bullish and focus more on stock-specific movements, which are likely to provide better trading opportunities.
The SGX Nifty is indicating a big gap down opening and we are likely to start around the strong support levels at 17800 - 17700 levels. In the recent past, it has been observed of such openings getting bought into, and hence it would be crucial to see how our markets react post the opening. On the flip side, 18000 - 18100 will be seen as immediate resistance.

Ashika Stock Broking: Accumulate quality stocks for medium-term view.
Tirthankar Das, technical & derivative analyst, retail, Ashika Stock Broking: On the technical front, Nifty formed yet another bullish candle on the daily chart and surpassed the much-awaited hurdle of 18000 mark to continue with its winning streak. However, momentum oscillators has now reached an overbought region and some amount of cool-off seems eminent. However present price structure indicates of continuance of positive bias and our domestic Index is likely to head towards 18,300 in near term as it is the swing high of January 2022. Nifty also registered a bullish golden crossover in August (50-DEMA crossing above 200-DEMA) implying major shift of momentum from a medium-term perspective. Nifty also has given a conclusive breakout from eight month’s falling channel signalling end of corrective phase and breakout is well supported by sequential improvement in market breadth. However brutal sell-off in the US market after US inflation data for August, it is highly likely that the Fed will go for another rate hike of 75bps in its next FOMC meeting on 21st September and that would have its repercussion in our market as well. During the day global cues indicating of a huge gap down and lower level of 17700 and 17500 would be the immediate support points where one can accumulate quality stocks for medium term view.
