Benchmarks hit fresh record closing high levels; Nifty conquers 10,950 mark

Extending their record hitting spree for fourth consecutive day, Indian equity benchmarks once again settled at fresh closing high levels, with Nifty conquering its crucial 10,950 mark, while Sensex ended tad below its crucial 35,800 level. After making an optimistic start, domestic gauges gained momentum in second half of trade, as traders took some encouragement with report that overseas investors have put in a whopping Rs 87 billion in the Indian capital markets this month so far on expectation of recovery in corporate earnings and attractive yields. This follows an investment of Rs 2 trillion in the capital markets (equity and debt) in the entire 2017. Some support also came after a report enlightened that a greater proportion of provident fund savings could be headed for the stock market with shares rising to successive records in past weeks. Such a move could more than double the provident fund money invested in exchange-traded funds (ETFs) over time. The government is considering a plan to raise the equity investment limit for the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) to 25% from 15%.

Traders also got some support with IMF Chief Christine Lagarde and Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg's statement that raising women's participation in the labour force to the same level as men can boost India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 27 per cent. Private report stating that India will overtake China to be the fastest growing large economy in 2018 and the country’s equity market will become the fifth largest in the world, too aided sentiments. The report added that while the rest of the world offers low growth and insufficient structural change, India, by contrast, is seen as a reforming economy with the prospect of strong long-term growth. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has indicated that the upcoming Budget will not be a populist one and it’s a myth that the common man expects ‘freebies and sops’ from the government. He also pledged that his government will stay on the course of the reforms agenda that has pulled out India from being among the ‘fragile five’ economies of the world to being a bright spot.

On the global front, European markets were trading mostly in red in early deals despite Germany’s Social Democrats voted to enter coalition talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government, helping end months of political uncertainty in Europe's largest economy. Asian markets ended mostly in green, as global investors shrugged off the latest US government shutdown.
Back home, public sector banking stocks remained under pressure on ASSOCHAM-CRISIL report enlightened that India’s banking sector will be saddled with gross non-performing assets (GNPAs) worth a staggering Rs 9.5 lakh crore by March-end, up from Rs 8 lakh crore in the year-ago period. The report added that GNPAs will increase to Rs 9.5 lakh crore as on March 31, 2018 i.e. about 10.5 per cent of total advances, while stressed assets are expected to be at Rs 11.5 lakh crore. Steel stocks edged lower despite report that the steel ministry is in talks with Railways to ensure adequate availability of rakes for industries that have been saying the problem has led to a shortage of raw materials at plants.
