Monetary policy review to drive key equity indices




Mumbai, Dec 3: The central bank’s upcoming monetary policy review, combined with the direction of foreign fund flows are expected to drive investors’ sentiments in the equity markets in the coming week.

Market observers opined that other factors such as the rupee’s movement against the US dollar, global crude oil prices and further economic reforms will impact investors’ risk-taking appetite.

“RBI is scheduled to meet on December 6, 2017, and is expected to leave interest rates unchanged as inflation is inching up due to firming crude oil prices, increased financial market volatility and fiscal issues,” D.K. Aggarwal, Chairman and Managing Director of SMC Investments & Advisors, told IANS.

“Nifty is expected to trade in the range of 10,000-10,300 points levels, whereas Bank Nifty is expected to trade between 24,900-25,600 points levels.”

On technical levels, Deepak Jasani, Head – Retail Research, HDFC Securities, predicted a continued “short-term downtrend” for the Nifty after four consecutive sessions of correction.

“Nifty could now head towards the next supports of 10,050-10,094 points early next week,” Jasani said.

“Further downsides are likely if these supports fail to hold. Any pullback rallies could find resistance at 10,230 points.”

In its last review, the RBI had kept the key lending rate unchanged.

According to Devendra Nevgi, Founder and Principal Partner, Delta Global Partners, apart from the RBI’s rate decision, investors will also look to the language and cues on the future inflation scenario.

“Though the consensus is that RBI may not cut the repo rates, the language needs more attention if RBI turns more hawkish on sustained inflation and how the members’ votes split,” Nevgi told IANS.

Macro-data — Nikkei Services PMI — along with passenger vehicle sales will also determine the trajectory of the key indices on Monday, December 4.

Besides the macro-economic data points, volatility in the rupee’s movement against the US dollar and the direction of foreign fund flows could make investors nervous.

On the currency front, the rupee on Friday strengthened by 23 paise to close at 64.47 against the US dollar.

“Next week, the US dollar may react positively to the news that US Senate has approved the tax bill,” Anindya Banerjee, Deputy Vice President for Currency and Interest Rates with Kotak Securities, told IANS.

“As a result, USD/INR may inch higher towards 64.70-80 levels on spot with 64.30-35 acting as strong support. A range of 64.30 to 64.80 is expected over the near term.”

In terms of investments, provisional figures from the stock exchanges showed that foreign institutional investors (FIIs) offloaded stocks worth Rs 2,772.56 crore during the week ended November 27-30.

Last week, continuous outflows of funds, along with growing concerns over the country’s widening fiscal deficit as well as rising crude oil prices pulled the two key equity indices — S&P BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty 50 — lower.

Consequently, the barometer 30-scrip Sensex of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) plunged 846.3 points, or 2.51 per cent to 32,832.94 points.

Similarly, the broader Nifty 50 of the National Stock Exchange declined by 267.9 points, or 2.58 per cent, to close at 10,121.80 points.

Congress opposes move to let corporates enter banking sector





New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday opposed the proposal to allow corporates and business houses enter the banking sector, contending that this move will leave the depositors at their mercy as it happened in the case of Yes Bank and Laxmi Vilas Bank.

Addressing a press conference, former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said: “The Congress party condemns the proposal and demands that the government, unequivocally and forthwith, declare that it has no intention of pursuing the proposal.”

“We call upon all the people of India and all political parties and trade unions to join us in resolutely opposing the retrograde idea of allowing corporates and business houses to enter the banking sector and set up banks,” he added.

The Congress alleged that the proposal, ostensibly based on a report of an RBI Internal Working Group, has the fingerprints of the Modi government written all over it.

This proposal, along with some other recommendations, is part of a deeper game plan to control the banking industry, it said, claiming that the proposal, if implemented, will completely reverse the enormous gains made in the last 50 years of retrieving the banking sector from the clutches of business houses.

Noting that all over the world, especially in developed economies, three principles govern banking — broad-based shareholding reflecting shareholder democracy, strict separation of ownership and management with ownership with shareholders and management in professional hands, and prohibition of connected lending, Chidambaram said that all three will be thrown out of the window if corporates and business houses are allowed to set up banks.

“Bank funds belong to the depositors who are the people of this country. As a proportion of total deposits, the equity of a bank is minuscule. The total deposits in the banking industry is of the order of Rs 140 lakh crore… If business houses are allowed to own banks, they will, with a small equity investment, control very large amounts of the nation’s financial resources. This must not happen and the Congress will strive its utmost to ensure that this will not happen,” Chidambaram said.

He said that it “is shocking that such an idea should have been presented to the people as though it has the imprimatur of experts and the endorsement of the RBI”.

“Just as the RBI was the cat’s paw of the government in the saga of demonetisation, the RBI is being used by the government to push through its dangerous agenda,” he said.
