Indian equity markets declined as investors continued to fear the
coronavirus pandemic and the risk of a wider financial contagion. Global
brokerages and financial agencies have been cutting their growth forecast
for the Indian economy for the fiscal and the quarter in the face of the
pandemic.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 2.01% and 2.42%
to close at 28,288.23 and 8,263.45 respectively. S&P BSE MidCap and S&P
BSE SmallCap lost 3.7% and 4.53% respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 549 scrips advancing and
1,866 scrips declining. A total of 146 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Telecom was the only gainer, up 1.66%.
S&P BSE Metal was the major loser, down 7.17% followed by S&P BSE
Capital Goods, down 6.18% and S&P BSE Auto, down 5.93%.
A prominent global brokerage has within two days sharply cut its Jun
quarter growth forecast by 90 bps to a low of 3.1% and the full-year India
GDP target by 100 bps to 4.1% for FY2021. It cited an almost certain global
recession due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to the media, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI)
has eased compliance rules for companies that have been struggling to
cope with COVID-19 outbreak and allowed them to file their quarterly and
annual financial results by Jun 30, 2020.
Media reports showed the government is mulling offering easier loan
repayment terms and tax breaks for small-and medium-sized companies to
help the economy weather the onslaught of the coronavirus.
The government may plan a cash transfer scheme to mitigate the impact of
the economic fallout caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, media reports
showed. The scheme could cover the poor and those who have been
affected the most by Covid-19.
Asian equity markets fell even as the European Central Bank announced to
spend more than $800 billion to buy bonds and the U.S. passed a funding
and relief package to fight the pandemic. Investors feared the world is
heading for a virus-fueled economic catastrophe. Today (as of Mar 20),
Asian markets opened higher as investors await the release of China’s
benchmark lending rate. Nikkei is closed on account of a public holiday.
Hang Seng was up 2.02% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets crawled up drawing support from policy announcements
by the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Bank of England (BoE) to deal
with the pandemic. BoE announced another surprise interest rate cut after
ECB came out with a new “Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme”
worth 750 billion euros.
U.S. markets gained after the previous session’s steep losses on the back of
rise in big tech and energy stocks.
