MARKET COMMENTARY

(Aug-16-2018 08:14)
The Indian benchmark indices are set to open lower on Thursday amid weak cues from other Asian peers.

The Asian markets have opened on a lower note on escalating global tariff worries, while Wall Street closed lower in the previous trading session as investors turned risk-averse on disappointing earnings and escalating global tariff worries.

On the economy front, the markets may react to a report that investors pumped a staggering Rs 10,585 crore in equity mutual funds in July, mainly driven by strong corporate earnings and near normal monsoon. Also, India’s trade deficit in July came in at USD 18.02 billion, compared to USD 16.60 billion in June.

Muted trends in the SGX Nifty Index Futures for August delivery, which were trading at 11,411, down by 23 point or 0.20 per cent, at 08:07 AM India time, signalled a flat to lower opening for the domestic bourses.

Snapping two-day losing streak, the Indian benchmark indices ended higher on Tuesday, helped by buying across pharma, realty, IT and financial stocks. The 30-share benchmark index closed trade at 37852, up by 207.1 points or by 0.55 per cent, and the NSE Nifty ended at 11435.1, up by 79.35 points or by 0.7 per cent.
