  • Bullish on India | This is India’s time under the sun: Piyush Goyal

India’s Minister Piyush Goyal believes that the country is in a prime position for growth, investment, and expansion, with opportunities galore for the next 30-35 years. He sees India as a 30-30-30 matrix, with a young population below 30 years old and a strong foundation laid by PM Modi. Goyal believes that within the next 30 years, India will add 30 trillion dollars to its economy, making it a potential engine of global growth. He believes India’s story is unfolding and will become the engine of growth for the world.

  • Moody’s affirms India’s Baa3 rating, but warns of political tensions
  • Moody’s Investors Service has affirmed its Baa3 rating on India, maintaining a stable outlook. However, the rating is criticized for political issues, including the ongoing violence in Manipur. The curtailment of civil society and rising sectarian tensions support a weaker assessment of political risk and the quality of institutions. Rising domestic political tensions suggest an ongoing risk of populist policies, amid social risks like poverty, income inequality, and inequitable access to education and basic services. The periodic flaring of border tensions with neighboring countries is an outlier among sovereigns assessed as having a lower overall susceptibility to political risk.
  • Mcap of seven of top 10 firms declines by Rs 80,200 crore; TCS, HDFC Bank biggest laggards

Reliance Industries, Hindustan Unilever, and Infosys were the gainers, while Tata Consultancy Services, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, ITC, State Bank of India, Bharti Airtel, and Bajaj Finance saw a decline. Bharti Airtel’s market capitalisation fell by Rs 8,081.38 crore, while State Bank of India’s mcap dropped by Rs 1,026.33 crore. Hindustan Unilever added Rs 12,347.1 crore, Infosys’ mcap increased by Rs 6,972.87 crore, and Reliance Industries’ mcap climbed by Rs 5,886.09 crore.

The firm now owns a stake in five of the 10 Adani Group firms. GQG bought a 7.73% stake in Adani Power Ltd., which was sold by Worldwide Emerging Market Holding and Afro ASIA Trade And Investments.

  • US Markets

    US S&P 500 futures saw little change after another losing week for major averages.

    Futures tied to the broader index rose by 0.03 percent, while Dow Jones Industrial Average futures dipped 7 points.

    Nasdaq 100 futures rose 0.18 percent.

    Palo Alto Networks jumped 11% in extended trading after reporting earnings results that topped analysts’ estimates.

    Investors are coming off a mixed session on Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average adding 25.83 points, the S&P 500 edged down 0.01 percent, and the Nasdaq Composite fell 0.2%.

    However, the major averages declined on a weekly basis, with the Nasdaq Composite closing the week lower by 2.6%, the Dow by 2.2%, and the S&P 500 dropping 2.1%, posting its third consecutive losing week since February.

  • European Markets

    European markets retreated on Friday due to cautious global sentiment and concerns about China’s real estate sector.

    The Stoxx 600 index closed 0.6% lower, while mining stocks and retail stocks fell 1.5% and 1.2% respectively.

    The European blue-chip index closed 0.9 percent lower on Thursday’s session after the US Federal Reserve’s July meeting minutes showed further interest rate hikes were not off the table.

    European stocks are expected to follow counterparts in Asia-Pacific, where markets fell across the board as investors assessed Japan’s July inflation print and Evergrande’s US bankruptcy filing.

    US stocks traded lower after major averages dropped for a third straight day, with the Dow closing below the 50-day moving average for the first time since June 1.

  •   Asian Markets

    Asia-Pacific markets are generally up following China’s announcement of its one-year and five-year loan prime rates.

    The one-year and five-year LPR currently stand at 3.55 percent and 4.2%, respectively.

    A poll of 35 market watchers predicted cuts to both rates after China’s central bank unexpectedly lowered the medium-term lending facility rate last week.

    Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index closed at 17,794, marking a weaker open compared to its Friday close of 17,950.85.

    In Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 slipped by 0.13 percent, while other markets were up.

  • Oil Prices

    Oil prices rose by about 1% on Friday due to slowing US output, but both benchmarks ended their longest weekly rally of 2023 due to concerns about global demand growth. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures gained 86 cents to settle at $81.25 a barrel, while Brent crude futures rose 68 cents to $84.80 a barrel. The US oil and natural gas rig count fell for the sixth week in a row, which could exacerbate supply tightness throughout the year. Concerns, spurred by output cuts from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies, have helped oil prices gain for seven straight weeks since June.

  • Gold Prices

    Gold is expected to experience its third consecutive weekly dip due to strong U.S. economic data, which suggests interest rates may remain higher for longer. Spot gold was steady at $1,887.79 per ounce, down 1.4% for the week so far. US gold futures settled 0.1% higher at $1,916.5. Gold is struggling to compete with instruments yielding 4-5%, such as bonds, which yield nothing in comparison. Gold may struggle to attract investor demand until something breaks, such as a credit event, a weaker dollar, or the FOMC’s focus on cutting rates.

  • Dollar Index

    The Dollar index closed 0.08 percent lower in futures at 103.35, while the dollar’s value was near Rs 83.16.
