Indices falls towards the end with Sensex shedding 230 points and Nifty 65

Indian indices mostly traded in the flat-to-negative zone on Thursday but dropped steeply towards the end to close 0.36% lower. Negative global cues and inflation concerns kept investors on their toes.

Sensex lost 230 points to close at 61,750, while Nifty shed 65 points to end below 18,350, at 18,343.

Tata Consumers, Adani Enterprises and L&T ended in the green with decent gains, while Titan, M&M, Tata Motors, Eicher Motors and Apollo Hospitals shed in today's session.

Most sectoral indices came under pressure with Auto, IT, Media and Consumer Durables shedding the most. PSU Bank was the only index to end in green with decent gains on Thursday.

Asian markets were under pressure on Thursday as investors re-assessed the U.S. monetary policy outlook and other negative global cues, especially the stubborn inflation figures from Europe.

Japan's Nikkei ended lower on Thursday, as chip-related stocks led the losses after Micron Technology cut its memory chip supply and capital spending while travel shares jumped on an increase in foreign tourists.

Investors in Europe were spooked by a deadly missile blast in Poland and US retailers' warnings about a weak holiday season.

European markets also traded lower in the morning with London weighing down by the news of UK inflation spiking to a 41-year peak in October amid rocketing energy bills and food prices. Frankfurt and Paris stocks also sank.

Binding commitments on new issues in FTAs may hamper India's exports in future: Report

Taking binding commitments on new issues like environment, labour and sustainability in the proposed free trade agreements (FTA), being negotiated by India, may hamper the country's exports in the future, according to a report by Global Trade Research Initiative.

India's already "weak" FTA outcomes may worsen if it takes obligations in the new issues, the report -- FTAs: Fabulous, Futile, or Flawed? An evaluation of India's FTAs with ASEAN, Japan and South Korea -- said.

It added that like many developing countries, India has an evolving regulatory framework on most new issues.

"International commitments must be taken only after the domestic regulatory framework is in place. And both must be in sync. New non-trade issues may serve as non-trade barriers and hamper our exports in the future," GTRI (Global Trade Research Initiative) report said. (PTI)

COP27 Draft Leaves Out Pledge to Phase Down All Fossil Fuels

Countries negotiating at the climate summit in Egypt are on track to reject calls for phasing down the use of all fossil fuels, snuffing efforts by India and key developed nations to target oil and gas as well as coal in an overarching deal at COP27.

The Egyptian presidency published the first draft of its so-called “cover decision" and largely kept last year’s pledge made at Glasgow to “accelerate measures towards the phase down of unabated coal power" and phase out fossil fuel subsidies. It also stuck with a commitment to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. It highlighted that countries are currently falling well short on meeting the climate finance needs of developing countries. (Bloomberg)

Breakfast index surges in UK: How much more Britons are paying for bread and milk

Higher-than-expected inflation is taking a toll on UK consumers’ grocery shopping, spelling food poverty for many families.

Bloomberg’s monthly Breakfast Index shows that the cost of basic ingredients that go into an English “fry-up" have all increased significantly from a year ago, with milk jumping by 51% and butter up 31%. It’s yet another measure of how thousands of families can’t avoid paying ever-higher prices for the foods they regularly put on the table.

“Supermarkets have been forced to pass on input cost price increases to already hard-pressed customers," said Lisa Hooker, industry leader for consumer markets at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. “Worryingly, there have been particularly large increases in the price of food staples such as bread."

Ashika Stock Broking views on today's market: Nifty is on the path to challenge the all-time high of 18600 in coming sessions

Tirthankar Das, Technical & Derivative Analyst, Retail, Ashika Stock Broking Ltd: On the technical front, Nifty formed an indecisive candle resembling closer to a Doji kind of pattern on the daily charts, indicating uncertainty about the future trend in the market. Though the sequence of higher high formation remains unabated without any signs of price exhaustion or topping out situation and chances remain high of price consolidation after a sharp rally of almost 1700 points in last one month. Nifty since the past few days of trading session has led the Index to breach past the falling trend line which confirms that the primary trend is up and is well placed to accelerate the upward momentum hereon, aptly supported by global cues and multi-sector participation in our domestic market. India VIX, which gauges market volatility, has also recorded five months' range breakdown and is trading below 16, indicating low-risk perception among market participants, followed by sequential lower high-low formation in USINR to favour inflows in Indian equities. Now the elevated support level for the market now stands at 17950 followed by 17500 as it happens to be the 50 days EMA and the breakout point from the 12 months falling trend line. The momentum indicator RSI (relative strength index) is presently at 68 slightly closer to overbought situation which further reinstates of an upcoming consolidation in the market, however present setup signifies that Nifty is on the path to challenge the all-time high of 18600 in coming sessions followed by 18900 in near term. During the day, Nifty is likely to open on a negative note amid negative global cues though the positive momentum in the Index is likely to withstand thus lower levels of 18300-18340 need to be utilized for initiating long position for an upside target of 18600.

Therefore, this strategy can be expected to work, going forward, too. High quality stocks in banking, IT, telecom and capital goods form the backbone of this large-cap driven rally. Dips in this segment are likely to get bought. India is the only large market that crossed previous record highs. This will stand the market in good stead. Even though the mother market US has turned a bit weak, the sustained fall in US bond yields is a positive for emerging markets like India. The mid- and small-cap indices are likely to remain weak."

Indian refiners becoming wary of buying Russian oil as EU sanctions loom - sources

Indian refiners are wary of buying Russia crude oil loading after Dec. 5 when European Union sanctions take effect, pending clarity on the proposed G7 price cap mechanism, according to sources familiar with the refiners' crude purchase plans.

Chinese refiners have already begun slowing down Russian oil imports from next month.

The Asian giants, who are two of the world's top three importers, had become Russia's biggest customers after the West shunned Russian oil after the outbreak of war in Ukraine.

Reduced buying by both of them would leave Russia chasing alternative customers, potentially depressing prices even if those new buyers are unlikely to join a plan by rich nations in the Group of Seven (G7) to cap Russian oil prices.

Reliance Industries Ltd, operator of the world's biggest refining complex and a major customer for Russia, has not placed orders yet for Russian cargoes loading after Dec. 5, two sources familiar the refiner's purchase plans told Reuters.

Neither has state-run Bharat Petroleum Corp, they said. (Reuters)

INDIA BONDS-Bond yields seen easing tracking fall in oil, U.S. peers

Indian government bond yields are expected to open lower on Thursday, tracking a decline in U.S. yields as well as oil prices.

The rupee depreciated by 35 paise to close at 81.26 against the US dollar on Wednesday on disappointing trade data and foreign fund outflows.

The domestic unit finally settled at 81.26 against the American currency, registering a fall of 35 paise over its last close.

Pricing challenges likely to persist for steelmakers in Q3

Indian steelmakers posted weak numbers in the September quarter as high inventory costs and declining steel prices led to significant pressure on profits, according to data compiled by Mint.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Ebitda) of leading steelmakers such as Tata Steel, JSW Steel, Jindal Steel and Power, and Steel Authority of India (SAIL) fell 49-68%, sequentially, and 58-90% from the year earlier.

According to analysts, domestic steel prices are close to import-parity prices and may not go up significantly. The natural hedge against cheap exports was being provided to some extent by a weak rupee and a stronger dollar. However, with the rupee appreciating in the past few days, the risk of cheap imports increases, and the industry must be cautious about it, analysts said. (Read More)
