  • Shares jump on US-China trade optimism, ECB stimulus
  • September 13,2019  16:44
  • Key equity benchmarks ended the volatile session with strong gains on Friday. Rate sensitive banks, realty and auto stocks were in demand. Investors' sentiment got a boost as improving US-China trade relations and a rate cut from the European Central Bank (ECB) eased fears of a global economic slowdown.

    The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, rose 280.71 points or 0.76% to 37,384.99. The Nifty 50 index rose 93.10 points or 0.85% to 11,075.90.

    The 50-unit Nifty opened lower and dropped below 11,000 level in morning trade. Buying resumed in the afternoon trade, which pushed the index above 11,000. The index, however, failed to cross 11,100 mark.

    The BSE Mid-Cap index rose 0.41% and the BSE Small-Cap index also advanced 0.82%.

    The market breadth was strong. On the BSE, 1513 shares rose and 960 shares fell. A total of 165 shares remain unchanged.

    On the data front, India's industrial production accelerated to 4.3% in July 2019, from four-month low of 1.2% in June 2019. The all-India general CPI inflation was nearly steady at 3.21% in August 2019, compared with 3.15% in July 2019. The core CPI inflation eased to 4.20% in August 2019 compared with 4.25% in July 2019.

    In the foreign exchange market, the rupee edged higher against the dollar. The partially convertible rupee was hovering at 71.005, compared with its close of 71.14 during the previous trading session.

    In the commodities market, Brent crude for October 2019 settlement was down 13 cents at $60.25 a barrel. The contract fell 43 cents or 0.71% to settle at $60.38 a barrel during the previous trading session.

    Overseas, European markets were trading higher. The European Central Bank (ECB) approved a fresh stimulus package as expected on Thursday, cutting interest rates and approving a new round of bond purchases to prop up euro zone growth and halt a worrisome drop in inflation expectations. The ECB cut its deposit rate to a record low -0.5% from -0.4% and will restart bond purchases of 20 billion euros a month from November, it said in a statement.

    The ECB also confirmed that the interest rates would remain at present or lower levels until the inflation meets the bank's target inflation rate, wiz, near and just below 2%. The 10 bps rate cut aims to boost the long-term refinancing operations to stimulate the lending programs and introduce a tiered system that would ensure the exemption of a chunk of excess reserves parked by banks with the ECB from the negative interest rate.

    In Asia, markets in China and South Korea were closed on Friday for holidays. Other Asian markets ended higher as hints of progress in the US-China trade dispute and aggressive stimulus from ECB helped to counter worries about a global economic slowdown.

    US President Donald Trump signaled Thursday he would consider an interim trade deal with China, though it would not be preferred.
