• Indian equity markets gained after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) took
measures to boost credit growth to the real estate sector. Though RBI kept
its lending rate unchanged, it tweaked maintenance of cash reserve ratio
(CRR) rules by providing relaxation in calculation of total deposits. The
central bank did this to increase lending to micro, small and medium
enterprises as well as the auto and home segments.
• Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.4% and 0.4%
to close at 41,306.03 and 12,137.95 respectively. S&P BSE MidCap and S&P
BSE SmallCap gained 0.81% and 0.52% respectively.
• The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,379 scrips advancing
and 1,121 scrips declining. A total of 156 scrips remained unchanged.
• On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Telecom was the major gainer, up 1.93%
followed by S&P BSE Finance, up 1.21% and S&P BSE Utilities, up 1.05%.
S&P BSE Consumer Durables was the major loser, down 1.1% followed by
S&P BSE IT, down 0.8% and S&P BSE FMCG, down 0.5%.
• The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) kept key policy repo rate unchanged
in its sixth bi-monthly monetary policy review. The policy repo rate thus
presently stands at 5.15%. The reverse repo rate remains unchanged at
4.90% while the marginal standing facility rate and the bank rate remains at
5.40%. However, the MPC decided to continue with its accommodative
stance on the monetary policy.
• According to MPC, it was prudent to keep the monetary policy on hold as
the inflation outlook of the country moving ahead is clouded with
uncertainty and retail inflation may remain at elevated levels in the short
term. This can be attributed to increase in prices of pulses and proteins due
to shortfall in kharif production, adjustment in telecom charges, the
increase in prices of drugs and pharmaceuticals, impact of new emission
norms and increase in customs duties on items of retail consumption as
mandated by the government in the Union Budget.
• The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced that from the fortnight
beginning Feb 15, 2020 it would conduct Long Term Repo Operations
(LTROs) for one- and three-year periods for up to a total amount of Rs. 1
lakh crore at the policy repo rate of 5.15%. The objective of the move is to
improve the monetary transmission and improve credit flows to productive
sectors. RBI in order to improve bank credit to specific sectors has decided
to do away with the cash reserve ratio of 4% for retail loans for
automobiles, residential housing and loans to micro, small and medium
• MPC raised its retail inflation forecasts for H1FY21 to a range of 5.0% to
5.4%, higher than its previous projection of 3.8% to 4.0% for the same
period as the near-term inflation outlook remains uncertain. According to
MPC, food prices may go up as rise in input costs may lead to an increase in
milk prices while a shortfall in kharif production may lead to an increase in
prices of pulses. Volatility in global crude oil prices and uncertain global
economic outlook are also expected to impact the retail inflation outlook
for the country.
• Asian equity markets gained on the back of upbeat U.S. economic data and
reports that a vaccine or treatment has been developed to combat the
outbreak. However, World Health Organization officials tamped down such
expectations. Today (as of Feb 7), Asian markets opened lower as investors
awaited key Chinese economic data. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng dropped
0.26% and 0.17% (as at 8.a.m. IST), respectively.
• European markets closed higher on the back of upbeat earnings and as
virus outbreak fears eased. China’s decision to cut tariffs on many U.S.
goods also went down well with investors.
• U.S. markets gained as China announced it will halve tariffs on several U.S.
products. Strong corporate earnings and economic data supported
