MARKET COMMENTARY

(Jul-20-2017 08:12)
Indian equities are likely to open flat to lower on Thursday, tracking negative cues from Nifty futures on the Singapore Stock Exchange and muted trading across Asian markets. The Asian stocks were trading marginally higher after Wall Street ended higher in overnight trade amid hopes of strong corporate earnings report and higher oil prices. Meanwhile, investors also kept an eye on policy announcement by the Bank of Japan, Bank Indonesia and the European Central Bank. Back home, bearish trend in the SGX Nifty Index Futures for July delivery, which were trading at 9,916.50, down by 11.00 points or 0.11 per cent, at 10:34 AM Singapore time, also signaled a flat to negative opening for local bourses. On the economy front, India Meteorological Department (IMD), in its latest weather update, said that India received higher-than-expected 75.3 millimetres (mm) of rainfall from July 12 to July 19, which showed strong signs of revival across parts of the country. Capital market regulator Sebi mulls tightening norms on depository receipts (DRs) to check the flow of black money into the stock market, which may affect foreign fund inflows in the market. On the corporate front, oil marketing companies HPCL and ONGC will remain in focus as Union Cabinet approved to sell the government’s entire 51.11 per cent stake in HPCL to ONGC. On the earnings front, index heavyweight RIL and Wipro will announce their June quarter results today.
