Blame it on China! Weak Wednesday for Sensex, Nifty

Life takes its path and sometimes there are people to blame. - Andrea Corr

Stock markets across the globe are treading on a slippery path and for the time being you can blame it on China. To push market reforms, China's central bank on Tuesday devalued its yuan by nearly 2% against the US dollar. This move hit companies globally which have exposure to China. The proceedings at Parliament will take centre-stage as despite being in minority, in the Rajya Sabha, the Narendra Modi government on Tuesday mustered enough courage to table the Goods & Services Tax (GST) bill in the upper house. Continued protests from the Opposition will make it tough to pass the bill with barely any days left for the monsoon session of parliament to end. The bill is listed for consideration and passage today. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley lashed out at the Congress for stalling the country’s economic progress by not allowing the passage of the bill under the pretext of the Lalit Modi-Sushma Swaraj issue.

The outlook is a weak start. Macro data including IIP and CPI will be in focus besides results like Coal India, Reliance Infrastructure, JSPL, Ashok Leyland and Aurobindo Pharma. Global markets are in turmoil. US indices came tumbling with stocks like Apple, General Motors and others shedding weight due to China factor. The Dow fell 1.21%, S&P 500 dropped 0.96% and Nasdaq crashed by 1.27%. Asian markets are also in the red. With the Nifty below 8500, investors will remain cautious till a firm uptrend is established. In recent days, the mid-cap and small cap indices are also tumbling adding to the pressure.

Yuan-ing market! Rupee falls, Nifty shuts below 8500

After a firm start, the Indian indices faltered to record its third losing streak in a row as a weak currency and weaker sentiment led to a sell-off on the bourses. The rupee breached past the Rs64 per dollar mark and was trading around 64.20 per dollar levels. If that was not enough the ongoing political log-jam in the Parliament further hurt the mood.

The government today tabled the key GST Bill in the Rajya Sabha but protests by the opposition parties in the Upper House forced another adjournment in Parliament. Moreover, the devaluation of the Chinese yuan could persuade the Chinese producers to increase output and in the process aggravate the existing oversupply conditions. Finance Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi said he expects some impact on exports and foreign investment inflows.

Meanwhile, traders played safe and avoided fresh long positions ahead of the key economic data viz. the July CPI inflation and June IIP numbers due on Wednesday.

Index heavyweights like Tata Steel managed to beat estimates and SBI announced results which were in-line with market expectation. However, this was not enough to prevent any sell-off on these counters and both the stocks shed over 5% each.

Barring the BSE IT index all the other major sectoral indices ended in the red. Today’s sharp decline was led by the metals index, followed by interest rate sensitive’s like auto, banking and realty index. Even the mid-cap and small-cap stocks bore the brunt.

Commenting on SBI's quarterly earnings, Amar Ambani, Head of Research, IIFL said, "SBI’s Q1 FY16 earnings performance was in-line with our estimate aided by lower provisioning which in turn was underpinned by no negative surprise in the asset quality. Persistence of tepid loan growth and a material decline in NIM was disappointing though. Credit growth is likely to take few quarters to substantially improve while the near term margin outlook remains somber on the back of base rate reductions. On the positive side, asset quality stress seems to be stabilizing for the bank. Overall, we retain our positive stance on SBI as it is better equipped to capitalize on the impending economic recovery due to a stronger loan profile, deposit franchise and capital position."

The Sensex finally ended with a loss of 236 points at 27,866, and has now shed 432 points in the last three straight trading sessions.

The NSE Nifty touched a high of 8,556, and then dipped below the 8,500-level to a low of 8,441. The Nifty eventually settled 63 points lower at 8,462.

The India VIX (Volatility) index was up 2.8 percent at 15.8925.

Overnight on Wall Street, the Dow Jones index rallied 241 points to 17,615. The Asian markets, however, failed to replicate the gains. The Nikkei slipped 0.4 percent to 20,721. The Hang Seng and Shanghai Composite indices ended flat at 24,498 and 3,928, respectively.

The European markets too were seen trading with significant losses. The FTSE 100 was down 0.7 percent at 6,689. The DAX and CAC 40 had slipped over a percent each 11,455 and 5,137, respectively.

Back home, the broader market also finished with prominent losses. The CNX Nifty Junior and the Midcap indices declined over 0.5 percent each to 21,409 and 14,018, respectively. The Smallcap index dropped 1.3 percent to 5,770.

The breadth too was extremely bearish - out of 1,719 stocks traded on the NSE, 1,102 declined and 406 advanced today.

Among sectors - the CNX PSU Bank index tanked nearly 4 percent to 3,437, and the Bank Nifty plunged over 1.2 percent to 18,639. Among other rate sensitives, the Auto and Realty indices dropped 1.6 percent and 1.2 percent each to 8,605 and 181.50, respectively. The Metal index shed 3.5 percent at 2,036, and the Infra index declined 1.1 percent to 3,257. The IT index, however, gained 1.4 percent at 11,733.

PSU banking major SBI was the biggest loser in the Nifty-50. The stock tumbled over 5 percent to Rs. 268 even as the bank managed to beat Street expectations on the earnings front. The bank today reported 10.2 percent jump in Q1 standalone net at Rs. 3,692 crore as against Rs. 3,349 crore in a year ago period. Total income grew by 9.8 percent to Rs. 44,731 crore from Rs. 40,739 crore.

Following the sell-off in the banking behemoth, other state-run banks too witnessed selling pressure. Bank of India plunged 3.5 percent to Rs. 163. Oriental Bank of Commerce (OBC), Bank of Baroda, IDBI, Punjab National Bank, Allahabad Bank and Andhra Bank declined over 2 percent each.
