2019: Issue 691, Week: 8th - 12th July

A Weekly Update from SMC (For private circulation only)





From The Desk Of Editor


n the week gone by, global markets rallied on expectation of further interest rate I cuts by central banks worldwide. Markets also welcomed Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, to replace Mario Draghi as the president of ECB as this has reinforced expectations of more monetary policy easing. Recently, the Chinese commerce ministry has cleared that US tariffs against China must be lifted for the two sides to reach a deal to end the trade war.

Back at home, domestic markets witnessed volatile movement ahead of the Union Budget. The Indian rupee looked strong tracking firmer emerging market currencies and lower crude oil prices. As expected, in the budget, Finance minister has allocated Rs. 70,000 crore to PSBs inorder to boost credit. Government has set a target of Rs. 1, 05,000 crore of disinvestment receipts for the FY 2019-20. Also, the announcement of corporate tax to 25% for the companies having turnover upto 400 crores, will certainly bring ease of doing business in the economy. In the budget, it could be seen that the government wants to strengthen the debt as well as the equity market, by providing much needed relief to the market participants. It seems that the government is taking each measure to push growth in the economy. Meanwhile, Revenue collection from GST for June stood at Rs 99,939 crore; it slipped below Rs 1 lakh crore for the first time since February. The eight core sector industries recorded a growth of 5.1 percent in May on the back of healthy output in steel and electricity. Business activity growth in India’s service sector contracted in June; the Nikkei/IHS Markit Services Purchasing Managers’ Index fell to 49.6 last month from 50.2 in May. Going forward, market will witness a stock specific movement as we are going into the earning season. Besides, rupee movement, crude oil prices, inflow and outflow of foreign funds will dictate the trend of the markets.

In the commodity market front, some correction was witnessed in CRB after a continuous upside of three weeks. The week was full of event risk. Positive outcome from China and US in G 20 couldn’t lift up the market as per expectation and market took a dip on growth concern. Domestic market was conscious ahead of the Union Budget. In the OPEC meet, which was scheduled on 1st and 2nd July, they reached on the consensus that they will continue the production cut till March, 2020. Despite production cut decision of crude oil, market reacted in a negative way and hit the downside of around 5%. Gold made new high of 35100 in the Indian market owing to a rise of 2.5% import duty. This week, bullion counter should trade in a range. Base metal counter can trade on weaker path. Going forward some of the market triggers are New Yuan Loans, CPI of China, Bank of Canada Rate Decision, FOMC Meeting Minutes¸ CPI of US, etc.

Turmeric futures (Aug) may continue to remain trapped in the bearish zone of 6600-6800 levels as the sentiments are mixed amid ongoing sowing season. Good rains have been reported in Telangana & Maharashtra, due to which the pace of sowing has been seen well there. The demand side is muted due to lack of quality arrivals in the spot markets.

Bullion counter may continue to remain on sideways path as on the one side uncertainty regarding the US China trade war; Middle East tensions and expectation of interest rate cut by Fed in upcoming meeting can support the prices but bounce back in the greenback can cap the upside. Gold can witness profit booking at higher levels as it can test 34200 by facing resistance near 35200 while silver can test 37500 while taking resistance near 39400. Last week Indian gold made lifetime high of 35100 after the increase of import duty in gold by 2.5% whereas Comex gold couldn’t give much reaction on this news. Silver was also few points shy away from 39000 marks. The U.S. Federal Reserve holds its two-day policy meeting on July 30-31 and futures are fully pricing in a 25-basis-point cut. Meanwhile the yields on U.S. benchmark 10- year Treasury notes hitting their lowest in over 2-1/2 years as euro zone yields tumbled on record lows on bets the European Central Bank’s next chief would stay a dovish course to help the euro zone economy. India's gold imports rose 12.6% in June from a year earlier to $2.69 billion amid a jump in global prices to six-year highs. The gold market saw its best price performance in three years last month, but there Interest in physical gold bullion has been lackluster for the last two months, according to the latest sales data from the U.S. Mint In June. In June, the mint sold 5,000 ounces of gold in various denominations of America Eagle gold coins; in May the mint sold only 4,000 ounces of gold.

This bearish trend is likely to continue & the August contract may face resistance near 3690, while the downside may get extended towards 3550-3500 levels. In days to come, the area under sowing may catch a rapid pace as the monsoon is progressing well in the major growing regions & also the farmers may get interested to grow more of this oilseed after the announcement of raising the minimum support price by Rs.311 per 100 kg to Rs.3,710 per quintal. U.S soybean futures (Aug) is expected to take support near $8.70 per bushel & trade on a steadier path as compared to previous weeks. After the Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping struck a truce at the Group of 20 summit in Osaka, China is considering buying some U.S. agricultural products as a gesture of goodwill amid the resumption of trade talks. Mustard futures (Aug) is not being able to breach the resistance near 4000 & going ahead, we may see weakness towards 3890-3875. This softness is attributed to the slowdown of the demand for the oilseed by the millers, which is getting reflecting in the fact that mills in India crushed 13% lower in June from a month ago. The downtrend may again emerge in CPO futures (July) towards 500-495 levels, while soy oil futures (Aug) may come down to test 730-727, facing resistance near 744 levels.

Crude oil may dip further towards 3700 levels while taking resistance near 4150 levels in near term. Weakness in the oil market came despite ongoing tensions in the Middle East, threatening supply routes. British Royal Marines seized a giant Iranian oil tanker in Gibraltar last week for trying to take oil to Syria in violation of EU sanctions, a dramatic step that drew Tehran's fury and could escalate its confrontation with the West. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other producers such as Russia, a group known as OPEC+, agreed to extend oil supply cuts until March 2020 as members overcame differences to try to prop up prices. Natural gas may witness lower level buying as it can test 170 while taking support near 152. Elsewhere, recovery in oil exports from Venezuela in June and growth in Argentinian output in May kept a lid on prices. Forecasts for higher demand this week and record liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports over the next two weeks can support the prices. Natural gas consumption increased in 2018, reaching a new record consumption level of 82.1 billion cubic feet per day, according to the EIA. Natural gas consumption has increased in 8 of the past 10 years. Growth in natural gas consumption has largely been driven by increased consumption in the electric power sector.

The rapid pace of advance of the monsoon towards the rest of the country is expected to lead to favorable rains. The nationwide average yields for MY 2019/20 around 510 kilograms per hectare, above average historical yield levels. Castor seed futures (Aug) is expected to maintain its upside course & may head to test 5800, taking support near 5600 levels. Prices of castor seed in the key markets of Gujarat are trading higher on account of elevated demand from domestic stockists amid a decline in arrivals.

The latest statistics show that acreage of Kharif castor crop was at 2,039 ha, down 72% on year, according to the latest data from farm ministry. Mentha futures (July) is expected to witness a U-turn recovery from lower levels towards 1275-1295, taking support near 1220 levels. The arrivals on the spot markets will probably slow down as farmers have stopped harvesting the new crop due to heavy rainfall in the key growing areas of the state. Additionally, lower inventory and good export demand for the newlyharvested oil will also act as a catalyst to fuel the upcoming uptrend. There are talks in the market that farmers are holding back stocks right now as they feel prices will rise to 1,800 rupees a kg by Aug-Sep..


Base metal counter can trade on weaker path. Top U.S. and Chinese representatives are arranging to talk again this week, U.S. administration officials stated, in a move to try to resolve a year-long trade war that has been weighing on global growth and metals demand.

Inventories in warehouses tracked by ShFE have been falling in recent months but were still up 23% so far this year. Meanwhile, Lead may trade sideways as it can face resistance near 159 while taking support near 146 levels. Zinc may trade with weak bias as it can test 188 levels while taking resistance near 202 levels. Zinc prices fell recently as rising Chinese production and a collapse in the premium for cash metal on the LME pointed to a better supplied market. Rising Chinese output, rumours that zinc is moving from Chinese bonded storehouses into the LME warehouse system and a big fall in the premium for LME cash zinc were pushing prices lower. Higher output by Chinese smelters is expected to end a deficit that according to the International Lead and Zinc Study Group (ILZSG) amounted to 97,000 tonnes during the first four months of this year. Nickel can also witness profit booking towards 850 levels. Aluminium can test 135 levels while taking resistance near 147 levels.

• During its 175th meeting, the OPEC gave its nod for extension of production cut till March 2020


In the week gone by, some correction was witnessed in CRB after a continuous upside of three weeks. The week was full of event risk. Domestic market was conscious ahead of the Union Budget, which was scheduled on Friday; participants were waiting for further cues in terms of policy measures. Appreciation in INR locked the price movement though rising crude oil prices and foreign fund outflows weighed on the domestic currency and restricted its rise. Positive outcome from China and US in G 20 couldn’t lift up the market as per expectation and market took a dip on growth concern. OPEC meet was scheduled on 1st and 2nd July and they came on consensus that they will continue the production cut till March, 2020. Despite production cut decision market reacted in negative way and hit the downside of around 5%. Growth concern thwarted the news of production cut here. The EIA showed crude stockpiles fell 1.1 million barrels in the week ending June 28, below expectations of a draw of about 2.96 million barrels. Natural gas prices saw further decline on weaker demand. Natural gas is still down nearly 20% YTD as record supply will keep prices depressed. Some safe haven buying noticed in gold though the upside was limited owning to appreciation in dollar index. Silver was weak as global growth to weigh on silver’s industrial uses, which accounts for roughly 50% of the metals demand. Almost all base metals nosedived on growth concern; aluminum and zinc traded weak for nonstop seven week. While global consumption growth of aluminium and copper during the first quarter of 2019 was muted at 1.4 per cent and 0.8 per cent, respectively, as against 4 per cent and 2.3 per cent, respectively, in 2018, consumption of zinc registered a de-growth of 1.3 per cent as against 0.3 per cent de-growth in the last year. Despite muted consumption levels, markets of the three key non-ferrous metals continued to remain in deficit in this period, with shortages in fact expanding on a Y-o-Y basis, as production growth was even lower than the growth in demand. MSP declaration by the Government couldn’t give much positive impact on the prices. Oil seeds and edible oil counter was in a bearish grip. As of now, no sowing has been reported in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra while sowing in Rajasthan jumped over six folds to 186,000 ha. There is lack of buying for the oilseed on the spot markets, due to negative crush margin. Castor seed witnessed gains in key spot markets of Gujarat and futures owing to decline in acreage.

Higher MSP........to caring Farmers

To ease the suffering of farmers due to deficient start of monsoon and its less coverage & to fulfill the promise of doubling the farmers’ income till 2022, the Union Cabinet on July 3, 2019 has hiked the Minimum Support Prices (MSPs) for major Kharif crops for 2019-20. The Central government has taken farmer friendly initiative on the line of policy of increasing MSP of notified crops to at least 50 per cent return over cost of production which is a major step towards increasing the income of farmers.

The MSPs for all kharif crops of 2019-20 season have been increased from 1 per cent to 9 per cent as follows :

• The MSP of soyabean has been increased by Rs 311 per quintal to Rs.3,710 per quintal from last year’s Rs.3,399 while MSPs of sunflower has been increased by Rs 262 to Rs.5,650 per quintal and sesamum by Rs 236 to Rs.6,485 per quintal.

• Government has increased the MSPs of tur dal by Rs 125 per quintal and urad dal by Rs 100 per quintal. This will help address the issues related to requirement of pulses in view of the need to meet the nutritional security and protein requirements of a large section of population.

• The MSP of cotton too has gone up marginally. The highest percentage return to farmers over their cost of production is for Bajra (85%) followed by urad (64%) and tur (60%)

The Minimum Support Prices for all kharif crops of 2019-20 season is as follows:

MSP has an important role

The move will lead to increased investment and production through assured remunerative prices to the farmers. The revised MSPs will provide much relief to farmers as it will bear the burden of increased input cost such as increasing fuel prices, rental cost of agricultural equipment and spike in fertliser prices. Promoting cultivation of pulses & oilseeds can help India overcome nutrition insecurity, improve soil fertility by nitrogen fixation, reduce the dependency on import by boosting production and provide income support to farmers. Thus, increased MSPs for pulses & oilseeds will give a price signal to farmers to increase acreage. Increase in MSPs of nutri-cereals will improve nutritional security and allow farmers to get higher prices.

However, the MSP hikes are expected to widen the fiscal deficit. The move may stoke inflation; prompt the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to hike interest rate. It may also hit exports of Rice, Kapas and soymeal badly as the domestic prices of these crops may go beyond international prices.

Market Stance

Indian Rupee jumped to 11 months high after Indian Chief Economic Advisor Mr. Krishnamurthy’s remarks for fiscal target ahead of union of budget cheered by Bonds and Rupee traders. He mentioned that the fiscal deficit will stay at 3.4% this FY and FY20 at 3.0%. Eventually overnight index swap - 1Y is above 5Y which suggest that there could me more rate cuts in the coming months. Admittedly, official comment by Hon FM in her maiden budget will cement the rate trend. Although lower GST collections and ripple effect of global slowdown may hit the revenue collections. Any substantial deviation of fiscal deficit may lead outflows in debt markets which in-turns hit Rupee sharply. Globally, Sterling’s slide against the dollar since last week has deepened – after odds of no-deal exit rises.
