India's cotton production to fall by 1% due to lackluster rainfall: Fitch

Fitch Solutions said on Tuesday it expects cotton production in India to fall by one per cent year-on-year to 28.3 million 480lb bales in 2021-22 (previously two per cent growth) due to lacklustre rainfall throughout July and August, the main planting times. Rainfall in Gujarat -- the country's top producing state (accounting for around a third of the country's annual production -- is almost 30 per cent below its long-term average as of mid-September which has reduced the area available for planting and weighed on yields. In addition, said Fitch, the recent outbreak of pink bollworm in Bhatinda and Mansa will probably also act as a drag on yields. Nevertheless, production should bounce back in 2022-23, providing that weather normalises and that the outbreak of pink bollworm is adequately contained.

Credit Card Business Monitor: Axis Securities

Growth picks up as COVID 2.0 headwinds ease: The Jul’21 data suggests a sharp rebound in new card issuances and spends as lockdowns and restrictions ease across geographies. On a YTD basis, the credit card industry witnessed a sharp improvement in spends, albeit on a marginally lower base. New card sourcing picked up momentum, supporting Cards-in-Force (CIF) growth of 10% YoY. In Jul’21, the business volumes grew by 38% YoY, which we believe were aided by the increasing shift towards online spending. On a YTD basis, spends witnessed a robust growth of 78% YoY. The new customer additions have shown an improvement in MoM and are expected to improve further thus aiding CIF growth.


Outlook: The relaxations in the COVID 2.0 related lockdowns and a gradual pick-up in the economic activities have aided a strong revival in spends, new sourcing, and business volumes in Jul’21. The forthcoming festive season will lend further support to the picked-up momentum in the spends and new customers sourcing. However, a possible COVID 3.0 remains a key risk. We continue to believe that Citi Bank’s exit from the credit cards business along with the domestic corporate loan recovery cycle yet to pick up, provides good growth opportunities for the credit cards business, supported by improving macro-conditions.

European steel to miss climate goals without technology shift

Europe’s steel industry must shift to low-carbon technologies from coal-fired blast furnaces within 12 years to prevent global warming exceeding the targets set by the Paris Agreement on climate change. New or refurbished blast furnaces have a lifespan of as long as two decades, highlighting the risk of long-term climate impacts if the switch isn’t made by 2033, according to a report from research house Industry Tracker. By contrast, many of the region’s steelmakers lack long-term plans to reduce emissions, it said. The steel industry worldwide is responsible for about 7% of global carbon emissions. Without action, Europe’s steelmakers would exhaust their carbon budget -- the amount they can emit before compromising Paris climate change goals -- by 2035, Industry Tracker said.

Market outlook: ICICI Securities

Equity benchmarks traded lacklustre on Monday to start the week on softer note. The Nifty ended at 17355, down 14 points as profit booking in some private banks and RIL weighed on the index while metals turned out to be top sectoral gainers (+1.47%). The Midcap and Small cap indices gained ~0.5% as advances outnumbered declines marginally.


Technical Outlook

· The Nifty commenced trade with loss led by weak global cues, only to recover entire 100 points from day’s low midway through session. Markets then turned stock specific as index remained directionless in second half. The price action formed another small bodied candle indicating extended breather as market awaits further cues on possibility of a third Covid-19 wave and progression of vaccination. The index has been trading in a narrow band for past five sessions indicating abating upward momentum after a sharp 12% rally in just five weeks, that led daily and weekly stochastics in overbought trajectory (readings beyond 90). Meanwhile Nifty small cap index extended relative outperformance

· We expect markets to remain stock specific, with Nifty undergoing a healthy consolidation. Hence, it would be prudent to stick to buy on decline strategy to accumulate quality stocks as over past 15 months such strategy has worked well for investors. As we do not expect Nifty to breach 16900 in consolidation phase, dips towards psychological level of 17000 would offer incremental buying opportunity in coming week

· Structurally, our broader positive stance is intact with Nifty gradually heading to 17600 in September 2021 as it is the price parity of July-August rally (15515-16700), projected from mid-August low of 16376. Sectoral churn amid consolidation would make overall strength healthy, going ahead

· On expected lines, broader market indices have regained upward momentum and hit new lifetime high confirming broader structural uptrend. We expect stock specific action to continue and broader indices to relatively outperform Nifty in coming week. Structurally, the formation of higher high and low, signifies continuance of positive bias which makes us confident to revise support base upward at 16900, as it is 50% retracement of current up move (16376 -17436)

Since the last few trading sessions Nifty has been taking strong support in the 17,250-17,300 range and has been facing resistance in the 17,420-17,450 range. A close above 17,450 with higher than average volumes may take Nifty to 17,550. Traders in long positions should consider booking profits if Nifty closes below 17,250." -

There seems to be good news on the inflation front. Retail inflation based on consumer price index (CPI) has dropped to a four-month low in August, primarily led by a fall in prices of vegetables. If this trend continues, economists believe there is a chance for the average inflation to undershoot the Reserve Bank of India’s forecast. (Read more)
