Sensex, Nifty Snap 5-Day Losing Streak Led By SBI, Tata Motors

Closing Bell

Indian equity benchmarks snapped their five-day losing streak, led by gains in State Bank of India and Tata Motors.

The S&P BSE Sensex rose 0.1 percent or 35 points to 34,651 and the NSE Nifty 50 index advanced 0.19 percent or 20 points to 10,537.

India’s largest lender rose nearly 4 percent despite posting a second straight quarterly loss. Tata Motors’ shares ended 4 percent higher after China said it will cut the import duty on passenger cars to 15 percent, according to Bloomberg. The lower tariffs will help Indian automaker’s luxury brand Jaguar Land Rover.

Fifteen out of 19 sector gauges compiled by BSE ended higher led by the S&P BSE Auto index's 1.7 percent gain. On the flipside, the S&P BSE Oil & Gas index was the top loser, down 0.4 percent.

The mid- and small-cap shares rebounded after underperforming their larger peers for two days in a row, both the indexes on BSE rose 0.65 percent.

SBI Chariman Rajnish Kumar had told BloombergQuint in March that slippages would be lower than the December ended quarter and gross slippages for the financial year 2018-19 would not exceed 2 percent.
  • Gross non-performing assets is seen at 10.6-11.5 percent as compared with 10.35 percent in the previous quarter.
  • Given a strong seasonal quarter, recoveries are expected to cushion headline asset quality numbers to some extent.
  • RBI has allowed banks to spread the provisioning for depreciation in the bond portfolio over four quarters. That may provide some cushion as Q3FY18 saw large mark-to-market bond provisions (which could be reversed if bank chooses to use that).

Rupee Recovers From 16-Month Low Against U.S. Dollar

The rupee recovered from its 16-month low to trade 15 paise higher at 67.97 against the US dollar in early session today, after opening 10 paise higher, on fresh selling of the dollar by exporters and banks.

Forex dealers said besides selling of the American currency by exporters and banks, weakness in the dollar against other currencies overseas supported the rupee.

Further, investor sentiment turned positive on easing trade woes between the US and China leading to a higher opening of the domestic equity market, boosting the domestic unit, they added.

Yesterday, the rupee had lost 12 paise to close at a fresh 16-month low of 68.12 against the US currency on sustained dollar demand from importers and corporates amid weak global cues.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex was trading 43.50 points, or 0.12 per cent, higher at 34,659.63 in early trade today.
