A Weekly Update from SMC (For private circulation only)
















From The Desk Of Editor


lobal markets oscillated in green and red amid news that U.S. reached an Gagreement with Mexico on tariff but gains were limited as fresh U.S. trade threats against China gave nervousness. In the U.S., more than 500 companies and 140 groups have signed a letter to the President urging to strike deal with China as they are concerned about the negative and long term impact on businesses that the additional tariffs will have. Market participants are awaiting a possible meeting between Trump and Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Japan this month. Equity markets are expecting support from policy makers as the trade tensions are threatening to weaken the fragile economic growth. U.S. 10 ten yields have plummeted to the lowest levels since 2017 on expectations that the Federal Reserve would cut interest rates. Japanese stock markets too witnessed profit taking amid wary about the prospects for the Japanese economy. Recently, the Bank of Japan Governor indicated that in case momentum towards 2 percent inflation target is lost, then the bank would resort to more easing. The statement came after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said to support growth and People’s Bank of China Governor said that he has "tremendous" policy options to stoke demand.

Back at home, domestic market extended decline for the second consecutive week, clocking their worst week on the back of weak global sentiments along with apprehension on the NBFC’s liquidity. Selling pressure was witnessed in healthcare, banking, finance telecom and auto sector shares. On the economic data front, industrial growth for the month of April came at 3.4 percent from 0.4% growth recorded in the previous month. Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation rose to 3.05% in May 2019 (new base 2012=100), compared with 2.99% in April 2019. Another data shows India slipped a rank to 10th place in the latest ranking of top foreign direct investment receiving countries for 2018. Even deal making through the private equity/venture capital routes saw a sharp 54% dip in May at a low $2.8 billion due to fewer large deals. There is an expectation that the Federal Reserve will ease monetary policy soon to counter a slowing global economy due to the escalating trade war with China. Fed is scheduled to meet next week.

On the commodity market front, Commodities saw minor upside and CRB traded near 182 as sharp fall in crude capped the upside. Dollar index saw some bounce back after a sharp fall of previous week. German ZEW Survey Expectations, Euro-Zone ZEW Survey, CPI of UK, CPI of Canada, FOMC Rate Decision and Fed Chair Powell Holds Press Conference After FOMC Meeting, GDP of Newzeland, BOJ Rate Decision, RBA Governor Lowe Gives Speech in Adelaide, Bank of England Bank Rate, BOE Asset Purchase Target, CPI of Japan etc are few important data to be released this week which may give significant direction to the commodities.

Jeera futures (July) is likely to witness steep correction towards 17050-16800 levels. On the spot markets, prices have already started declining because supply is seen rising. On the demand side, the exports have fallen due to sluggish demand from China and Bangladesh. The conviction is high that cardamom futures may continue to make new life time highs due to acute shortage in the supply side. In days to come, the July contract is expected to rally towards 2600 levels. The fundamentals highlight that forecast of weak rainfall in the key growing areas of Kerala, may affect plantations. The growers were expecting a fresh harvest in June, but there would be a 60-day delay, which in all probability would be in August only. Moreover, as there is no carry-over stock either with farmers or traders due to last year’s production loss and anticipation of a delayed production this year have boosted the sentiment in the cardamom auction market.


Bullion counter may continue its upside momentum as safe haven buying amid Middle East tensions and uncertainty regarding resolution of trade war tensions can assist the prices higher but profit booking at higher levels can be seen. Also supporting gold price is dovish tilt of major central banks and increasing economic uncertainty amid growth slowdown and trade conflict. Expectations that the US and China leaders will be able to reach a deal at the G20 summit on June 28-29 is still uncertain. President Donald Trump admitted to being the current obstacle to a trade deal with China as he mentioned that “It’s him right now that’s holding up the deal, as he needed Beijing to agree to four or five “major points”, without specifying what they were. Gold can take support near 32200 and recover towards 33700 levels while silver can test 38500 levels while taking support near 36500 levels.

The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose in penultimate week, adding to concerns about U.S. labour market after job growth slowed sharply in May.


Soybean futures (July) is expected to take support near 3620 levels & expected to rise towards 3765 levels on fear over delay in sowing. In recent update, the Skymet advised farmers in Maharashtra and Rajasthan, the leading soybean growers, to delay sowing of Kharif crops due to a weak monsoon current. Moreover, firmness in U.S soybean futures on Chicago Board of Trade is also trading near its two months high as the near-term weather forecasts turned wetter, a bad prognosis for a crop. Further, the acres that have been planted may not reach the high yields of recent years because of significantly delayed development, adding more risk to production. Soy oil futures (July) will possibly take support near 730 levels & witness a rise towards 750 levels. The strength to the domestic edible oils is being lent by the rally in the U.S soybean oil taking support near 27 cents per pound.

Last week attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman stoked concerns of reduced crude trade flows through one of the world’s key shipping routes. Fresh worries rising from the Middle East stoked tension between Iran and U.S. further hampering the prospects for Crude. Crude oil may take support near 3500 levels and can recover towards 3850 levels in near term. OPEC monthly report showed that OPEC brought its oil production down to 29.876 Mbpd in May, a five-year low for the oil cartel as it struggles to control member production to keep oil prices out of the doldrums. OPEC cut its forecast for growth in global oil demand due to trade disputes and pointed to risk of a further reduction, building a case for prolonged supply restraint in the rest of 2019. Natural gas may remain under selling pressure on unfavorable weather as it can test 150 levels by facing resistance near 175 levels. U.S. natural gas futures hit threeyear low hit last week after a federal report showed a bigger-than-usual storage build even though the increase was less than expected. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said utilities added 102 bcf of gas to inventories during the week ended June 7. That was the fifth week in a row utilities injected over 100 bcf of gas into storage, the most since June 2014 when they added gas in the triple digits for seven consecutive weeks.


Cotton futures (July) is expected to trade in the downward trajectory within the range of 20900-21700 levels. The sentiments related to this soft commodity in the international market is bearish as the market participants are cautious because of two major triggering factors in the current scenario.

Of this, 900,000 bales have already arrived, and the remaining quantum is likely to get delivered between JunSep. The bullish trend is likely to prevail in mentha oil futures (June) & rally may extend towards1360-1390 levels. The reason being new arrivals are only half of what is expected at this time because the farmers are stocking what they are harvesting as the pipeline had emptied last season. Cocud futures (July) is breaking all the resistances on the way & is seen heading towards 3000 levels. The sentiments are bullish on the back of an expected demand for cattle feed in Jul-Aug, as supply of green fodder doesn’t fulfill the protein requirement of cattle. This year, low stocks of cottonseed may lead to shortage of good-quality oilcake during the high-demand season and push


In base metal counter, nickel and copper may witness lower levels buying but aluminum may trade sideways.

Data from China showed that the world’s largest vehicle market in May had its worst-ever monthly automobile sales drop and factory inflation slowed during the same period as faltering manufacturing hit demand. Copper may recover lower towards 420 levels while taking support near 400 levels. Copper prices rose and witnessed their first weekly gain in nine weeks, on concerns that supply would tighten further as unionised workers at a Codelco mine decided to strike after a labour deal fell through. Latest data showed that copper inventories at warehouses tracked by the LME jumped to 248,550 tonnes, the highest since September 2018. Meanwhile Lead may recover towards 157 while taking support near 150 levels. Nickel can recover towards 900 levels while taking support near 840 levels amid worries that floods in Indonesia could disrupt supplies of nickel. Aluminium may test 148 levels while taking support near 140 levels. Zinc may trade with sideways to upside bias as it can test 214 levels while taking support near 200 levels.

Market Stance

Indian Rupee pared gain this week after reports confirmed on Thursday that Oil tankers were blown in the Persian Gulf - passage accounted for 30% World's Oil supply. Anti-Iranian Trump's diplomats - John Bolton and Mike Pompeo claimed Iran involvement in such attacks. Meanwhile data released on Wednesday showed headline inflation at 3.05% in May, well below the RBI's medium-term target of 4.00% for the price gauge. The data also showed that core inflation, which strips out the volatile components of food and fuel, eased to 4.2% in May from 4.6% a month ago. It was the fifth consecutive month of a decline in core inflation. On global front, the soft 75,000 gain in non-farm payrolls in May wasn’t quite as bad as the dismal ADP employment reading last week, but it is another sign that economic growth is slowing. On balance, Fed officials are likely to see evidence of more sustained weakness before taking action of easing, however, fed fund futures are pricing aggressive interest rates cut this year. In the UK, Boris Johnson overcomes the first hurdles of becoming next UK PM and the most likely favored candidate. He received 117 votes from his Tory colleagues in the first round - hurdle level was 17. Next round will take place on June 18th where only two candidates will be left. Post that more than 1500 Conservatives party members will vote to place new PM.

Equity MF inflows improve slightly in May, SIP flows remain stable

Assets under management (AUM) of the mutual fund industry stood at Rs 25.43 lakh crore at May-end, up 5 percent month-on-month (MoM), data from Association of Mutual Funds in India (AMFI) showed. Equity SIPs stood steady, just short of their all-time high. MFs received net fresh flows of Rs 76,989 crore in April, mainly driven by stable inflows into liquid funds and modest equity figures. Liquid and money market funds saw inflows of Rs 72,478 crore in May compared to Rs 96,000 crore in April. While flow in liquid funds were stable, outflows in credit risk funds increased significantly to Rs 4,156 crore as against Rs 1,253 crore in April. Credit-risk funds are debt funds that have at least 65 percent investments in less than AA-rated paper. Balance funds, too, remained out of favour as outflows in May stood at Rs 2,481 crore, in continuation of net selling of Rs 2,121 crore in April.

Moderate inflows into equity funds

Inflows into equity funds, including ELSS, improved slightly to Rs 4,969 crore in May, from Rs 4,229 crore in April. Open-ended equity schemes saw inflows of Rs 5,408 crore, which were slightly offset by outflows of Rs 439 crore in close-ended equity plans. Equity flows have been subdued in April and May, with investors preferring to stay on the sidelines till election outcome on May 23. However, the clear political mandate seems to have led to spike in flows in the last week of May.

Edelweiss Asset Management launches retirement plan in its schemes

Edelweiss Asset Management announced the launch of a unique feature for retirement planning under its mutual fund schemes. The Retirement Plan is a SIP feature built on life stage based asset allocation model for retirement planning. This is how it works: the plan gradually shifts the investment portfolio towards lower-risk investments based on age and life stage as one approaches retirement. It enables auto rebalancing of the retirement portfolio at a set frequency to reduce risk as the Investor moves closer to retirement. According to the fund house, the Retirement Plan gives investors enough flexibility to plan their retirement. "This plan enables investors to plan their retirement by allocating their investments in select open-ended debt and equity schemes of Edelweiss Mutual Fund by investing through Systematic Investment Plan (SIP)," the fund house said. The plan provides two asset allocation options – ‘Auto Option’ and ‘My Custom Option’. ‘Auto Option’ has a pre-defined asset allocation at every age while the ‘My Custom Option’ provides flexibility to customise equity and debt allocation as per risk appetite and the tenure of investment.
