Indian rice shipments stuck at ports, traders seek government help

At least 20 ships are waiting to load around 600,000 tonnes of rice at Indian ports as New Delhi's surprise export restrictions have trapped cargoes for nearly a fortnight, forcing sellers to pay demurrage charges, industry officials told Reuters.

India banned exports of broken rice and imposed a 20% duty on exports of various other types on Sept. 8, as the world's biggest exporter of the grain tries to boost local supplies and calm prices after below-average monsoon rainfall curtailed planting.

The surprise move trapped cargo that was moved to the ports or was in transit before the government made the announcement, said B.V. Krishna Rao, president of The Rice Exporters Association (TREA).

"We have requested the government to provide concession to this transitional cargo as we are paying hefty demurrage charges," he said. (Reuters)

MarketsMojo on US Fed meeting expectation: US Fed rate hike could impact Indian market sentiments only for a day and not beyond.

Sunil Damania, chief investment officer, MarketsMojo: It’s certain that the US Fed will hike interest rates, but the debate is how much. We sense that the Fed will increase it by 75bps even though there is a low possibility that the hike could be as high as 100 bps. If the Fed hikes the rate by 75 bps, we don’t expect a significant negative impact on the Indian market. In fact, after every 75 bps rate hike (as seen in June and July 2022), the Indian market rose. We expect a similar pattern to play out this time as well. At the most, the US Fed rate hike could impact Indian market sentiments only for a day and not beyond.

UN chief warns global leaders: The world is in 'great peril'

Warning that the world is in “great peril," the head of the United Nations says leaders meeting in person for the first time in three years must tackle conflicts and climate catastrophes, increasing poverty and inequality — and address divisions among major powers that have gotten worse since Russia invaded Ukraine.

In speeches and remarks leading up to the start of the leaders' meeting Tuesday, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres cited the “immense" task not only of saving the planet, “which is literally on fire," but of dealing with the persisting COVID-19 pandemic. He also pointed to “a lack of access to finance for developing countries to recover -- a crisis not seen in a generation" that has seen ground lost for education, health and women's rights.

Guterres will deliver his “state of the world" speech at Tuesday's opening of the annual high-level global gathering. U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said it would be "a sober, substantive and solutions-focused report card" for a world “where geopolitical divides are putting all of us at risk."

“There will be no sugar-coating in his remarks, but he will outline reasons for hope," Dujarric told reporters Monday. (PTI)

INDIA BONDS-Bond yields seen higher, tracking U.S. peers; Fed decision eyed

Indian government bond yields are expected to open marginally higher on Tuesday, tracking U.S. yields, as markets brace for another round of aggressive monetary policy tightening from the U.S. Federal Reserve.

Geojit Financial Services view on today's market: Indian market continues to show resilience despite global challenges.

Dr. V K Vijayakumar, chief investment strategist at Geojit Financial Services: Since globally markets are focused on Fedspeak on the 21st, major breaks from the present levels are unlikely for 2 days. A big correction after the Fed decision is possible only if the rate hike is by 100bp.

The Indian market continues to show resilience despite global challenges. Major indices like Nifty Bank, autos, FMCG and cement are at record levels with only Nifty IT dragging the benchmark indexes.

The real winners in this volatile market are investors who remained invested without much trading. This strategy may be continued in the near-term.

India’s defense of Rupee takes large bite from record reserves

India’s intervention to protect the rupee is running down currency reserves at a rate that’s poised to eclipse the drawdown during turmoil a decade ago.

While economists and the Reserve Bank of India aren’t ringing any alarm bells just yet, investors are watching closely given the rupee’s slump to an all-time low last month and the risk of a widening in the current account deficit.

Given a steady buildup in the reserves through to their peak last year, they remain at a much healthier level than during the previous period that covered part of the Eurozone crisis and the taper tantrum triggered by the Federal Reserve.

That crisis saw the rupee tumble almost 30% against the greenback between September 2011 and September 2013, making it one of the worst-performing emerging-markets currencies at the time. It’s dropped about 6.8% against the greenback in 2022, which is a much smaller loss than that of most of its peers. (Bloomberg)

While European markets and most of the Asian pack continued their downward spiral, the underperformance of the Indian markets last week prompted investors to buy the beaten-down stocks. Despite the recovery, markets may gyrate sharply intra-day amid global uncertainty. Technically, after an early morning fall, the Nifty found support near 17450/ (which is double bottom support level) and bounced back sharply and hovered between 17580-17665 levels. If the index trades above 17550 then the pullback formation is likely to continue. Above which, the index could touch the 20-day SMA level at 17675. On further upside, the index may rally up to 17800. On the flip side, below 17550 the index could retest 17450- 17400 levels."

Assets of bankrupt companies can be sold in parts: IBBI

The amendments to regulations on ‘Insolvency Resolution Process for Corporate Persons’ issued last Friday enables the resolution professional and the committee of creditors to issue request for resolution plan a second time for sale of one or more of assets of the corporate debtor in cases where no resolution plan has been received for the corporate debtor as a whole.

Rupee falls 3 paise to close at 79.81 against US dollar

The rupee pared its initial gains and settled 3 paise lower at 79.81 against the US dollar on Monday, weighed down by the strength of the greenback in the overseas market.

A fall in crude oil prices and foreign fund inflows into equity markets, however, restricted the rupee losses.

At the interbank forex market, the local unit opened at 79.70 against the greenback. It witnessed an intra-day high of 79.59 and a low of 79.81 during the session.

It finally ended at 79.81, down 3 paise from its previous close of 79.78. (PTI)

Wall Street ends up thanks to technical rebound and bargain hunt

US stocks closed higher Monday thanks to a technical rebound and bargain-hunting after last week's nightmarish run.

The Dow Jones industrial average gained 0.64%, the tech-rich Nasdaq was up 0.76% and the S&P 500 ended 0.69% higher.

All three indices had opened in the red Monday morning, before oscillating back and forth much of the day and finally gaining points before the close.

"I think today it really was about bargain hunting," RegentAtlantic analyst Andy Kapyrin said.

Major Nasdaq stocks, such as Apple ( 2.5%), Meta ( 1.18%) and Nvidia ( 1.39%) all ended higher after struggling for several days.

After flagging Friday, FedEx ( 1.17%) was also in demand Monday, as was Gap ( 4.39%), which was hit by a downturn last week after its deal with designer and rapper Kanye West ended.
