Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

Trends in the GIFT Nifty imply a bad start for India’s broader index, with a loss of 31.50 points (0.14 percent). The Nifty futures were trading near the 21,619.50 mark

US Markets

Wall Street’s main indexes closed down on Monday as Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell emphatically denied that rate cuts were imminent, while investors weighed a mixed bag of US corporate data.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average slid 274.30 points, or 0.71 percent, to 38,380.12; the S&P 500 sank 15.80 points, or 0.32 percent, to 4,942.81; and the Nasdaq Composite fell 31.28 points, or 0.20 percent, to 15,597.68.

Asian Markets

Most Asian markets dipped on Tuesday, matching Wall Street’s overnight falls, as investors anticipated the Reserve Bank of Australia’s interest rate decision later in the day.

Dollar

On Monday, the dollar rose to its highest level in nearly three months against nine other major currencies as traders reduced their bets that the Federal Reserve will rapidly lower interest rates this year, following new economic data that further diminished those odds.

The dollar strengthened against all members of the G10 group of currencies, which are among the most liquid in the world.

The dollar index monitors the greenback versus six other major currencies.

Oil Prices

Oil prices were little changed in early trade on Tuesday, as market participants analysed US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s travel to the Middle East to discuss a regional ceasefire offer.

Blinken met with Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler on Monday. Palestinians hope the visit would result in a cease-fire before an impending Israeli attack on Rafah, a border city where almost half of the Gaza Strip’s population is sheltering.

The truce agreement, handed to Hamas last week by Qatari and Egyptian mediators, is awaiting a response from militants, who claim they want further guarantees that it will halt the four-month-old conflict.

Brent crude prices were down 2 cents to $77.97 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures fell 3 cents to $72.75. Both contracts rose over 1% on Monday, marking the first increase in four sessions.

News Updates

Q3 net profit for Bharti Airtel soars 54%, with an ARPU of Rs 208.

For the October–December quarter, Bharti Airtel recorded a consolidated net profit of Rs 2,442.2 crore on February 5, up 54% over the same period the previous year.

According to a Bharti Airtel exchange filing, its revenue increased to Rs 38,339 crore from Rs 36,062 crore in the same time last year, representing a 6.3% increase.

The company reported that its average revenue per user per month (ARPU) for mobile devices was Rs 208, which was higher than expected and increased by about 8% from Rs 193 in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. “Consistent strategy of acquiring high value customers and improved realisations” was the driving force behind the ARPU.

AMC of HDFC Bank will purchase up to 9.5% of IndusInd Bank.

On February 6, HDFC Bank made it clear that HDFC Bank itself is not affected by the RBI’s clearance to purchase a portion of IndusInd Bank. It clarified to CNBC-Awaaz that the term “Bank” in the disclosure should be regarded as HDFC Bank Group.

The Asset Management Company (AMC) and Life Insurance divisions of HDFC Bank are the anticipated recipients of the RBI’s clearance for the acquisition of a share in IndusInd Bank. It was highlighted that HDFC Bank was required to obtain RBI permission for these transactions in its capacity as a promoter.

Late on Monday night, IndusInd Bank notified stock exchanges that HDFC Bank was permitted to purchase a “aggregate holding of up to 9.50 percent of the paid-up share capital or voting rights” in the lender by the RBI.

According to IndusInd Bank, HDFC Bank’s application to the regulator was submitted before the RBI granted its permission. The authorization is good for a year, after which it expires if HDFC Bank is unable to purchase the stake.

Paytm claims that the company has not been investigated by the ED and denies breaking any FX regulations.

The parent company of Paytm, One97 Communications, denied claims on February 5 that the firm is being investigated by regulators to see if it broke foreign exchange regulations.

The business clarified that the Enforcement Directorate has not opened an investigation into Paytm or its banking subsidiary Paytm Payments Bank Limited (PPBL) for the claimed infractions, while also denying breaking any exchange regulations.

The clarification was provided soon after news agency Reuters, citing two government sources, revealed that the Enforcement Directorate is looking into potential foreign currency rule violations on Paytm platforms.
