NIFTY FIFTY : - Last week Equity Market witnessed one of the historic events in the Indian Economy where after the Demonetization, markets were keenly expecting a minimum of 25 bps rate cut. But, to surprise all, Reserve Bank of India kept the stance unchanged shocking the markets on Wednesday. The Indian Equity benchmark Nifty opened in a negative bias on Monday trading Session Down by 31 points or 0.37 at 8230. The Last Week upside rally was contributed by strong fundamentals of the Indian economy accompanied with strong International markets. In last 24 trading sessions post Demonetisation, Nifty 50 has thereafter made a low of 7916 on 21 November and two successive tops around 8250 on 01 December and again 8274 on 09 December. The Nifty is currently showing a range of 8180 - 8300 with good supports holding the base strongly. During the discussed period, domestic indices were mostly driven by internal issues or sentiments and an impact of global coupling was quite limited or shortlived. Combination of stronger USD and domestic jitters of economic slowdown and political disruptions as a result of demonetization may be significant headwinds for the Indian market in the coming Weeks despite relatively better macros among its EM peers. unless & until Nifty sustained above 8100-8200 zone for a few days, any “Santa” or “Pre-Budget” Rally in the absence of FII’s in this month of Dec may be utilized for long profit booking to prepare for a probable Jan-March selling spree, despite a hope for a “dream budget”. On Thursday trading Session The Nifty opened at 8229 and that was the day's high too. It fell sharply by 61 points to test its previous day's low of 8172 after making a low of 8172. Yellen’s comments about the 0.25% rate hike as “very modest adjustment” and her “confidence” in the US economy has sent the USD & US bond yields soaring and for the first time after a decade. Technically, Nifty still in positive zone. Market needs to close below 8170 for Nifty to enter into negative zone. US FED increased Interest Rates by 25 bps, which was very much expected by the markets. Market would see roller-coaster rides Next week. There is possibility of recovery after a negative opening but direction would remain uncertain until closing. Traders can initiate short positions only if Nifty closes below 8170. Nifty would see strong support at 8145-8100-8077-8000 whereas strong resistance would be seen at 8200-8230-8265-8280-8310 levels.
BANK NIFTY : - The Indian Baking index Bank Nifty opened in a Negative note down by 79 points or 0.42 per cent at 18616. The Reserve Bank has directed banks to keep record of new bank notes in view of seizures by Income Tax Department and other law enforcement agencies of large quantities of high denomination notes. It has been felt necessary to put in place an appropriate reporting system to keep track of issuance of these bank notes by the currency chests. Nifty Bank is still in positive zone. Bank Nifty would enter into negative zone once it closes below 18255 levels. Market may see some short covering but for now, Bank Nifty looks weak and traders can go short at every positive rally in the Market. Bank Nifty would soon enter into negative zone once it closes below 18255 levels and we could see some sharp downfall in the market in days to come. The Bank Nifty is expected to trade in bullish trend for next trading week. The Significance Levels for Bank Nifty is 18833-19759 is Upside and 17907-16981 is down side.


Industrial production shrinks 1.9% in October - Industrial production contracted in October, resuming its decline after marginal growth in September, suggesting more pain going ahead as the impact of note withdrawal begins to show up. The Index of Industrial Production fell 1.9 per cent in October compared with a 0.7 per cent rise in September and 9.8 per cent growth in the year-ago month, data released by the Central Statistics Office on Friday showed. In the April-October period, production declined 0.3 per cent compared with 4.8 per cent growth last year. "Despite a good monsoon and the onset of the festival season, a lacklustre performance of industrial growth performance is indeed disappointing and reiterates the fear that health of industrial sector is in trouble," said Sunil Sinha, principal economist, India Ratings & Research. The consensus was for about 1 per cent growth. Industrial production has contracted in four out of seven months so far this fiscal. Some early numbers suggested industrial production will take a bigger knock following the government’s move to invalidate `500 and `1,000 notes on November 8. Sales of passenger vehicles rose a modest 1.82 per cent in November.

CBDT tries to allay tax terror fears as businesses go digital - An increase in turnover of a business owing to its accepting digital means of payment will not trigger reopening of cases of past years, according to a clarification issued by the Central Board of Direct Taxes. The Income Tax regulatory authority has sought to allay fears of tax terror, especially among the smaller and medium-sized business entities, many of which — in the back drop of demonetisation — would be accepting digital payments for the first time. These include retail stores, restaurants and other service agencies, ranging from coaching classes to beauty parlours. In its circular, CBDT explains, "By adopting the digital mode of payment, no financial transactions would remain undisclosed and consequently an enhanced turnover of business might get reflected in the books of accounts. "An apprehension was raised by the business community that increased turnover in the current year may lead to reopening of earlier years' cases where the turnover was lower. Reopening would cause undue harassment to taxpayers.

India's current account gap in July-Sept at 0.6% of GDP - The current account deficit narrowed by more than a percentage point to 0.6 per cent of GDP at USD 3.4 billion in the July-September on account of lower trade deficit. The July-September CAD is lower than USD 8.5 billion, or 1.7 per cent of GDP, in the same quarter of last fiscal. It is, however, higher than USD 0.3 billion or 0.1 per cent recorded in the first quarter of the current fiscal. According to RBI data, private transfer receipts, mainly representing remittances by Indians employed overseas, amounted to USD 15.2 billion, registering a decline by 10.7 per cent from the previous level a year ago. "The contraction in the CAD on year-on-year basis was primarily on account of lower trade deficit (USD 25.6 billion) brought about by a larger decline in merchandise imports relative to exports," the RBI said in a statement. Net services receipts moderated on annual basis, primarily owing to the fall in earnings from software, financial services and charges for intellectual property rights, it said.

Bring land, realty, power under GST fold, says Arvind Subramanian - As the Narendra Modi government wages its biggest war on black money yet, Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian today pitched for including land and real estate under the GST regime to check money laundering and corruption. Arvind Subramanian, who for the finance ministry had authored a report on possible tax rates under the Goods and Services Tax, suggested that the new indirect tax set-up should be clean with simple low rates and should include land and property as well as electricity. GST, which the government intends to roll out from April 1, 2017, is to subsume central excise, service tax and state VAT among other indirect levies on manufactured goods and services, but property and electricity have so far not been talked about as being part of it. "I still think we should aspire for simple, clean structure of rates which will have on balance lower and higher rates and that will be a necessary complement to fighting against black money that the Prime Minister has launched with demonetisation of old 500 and 1,000 rupee notes," he said at a conference here. He felt that land and real estate need to be part of the GST.

Bank credit plunges by Rs 61,000 crore in post note ban fortnight - The demand destruction unleashed by the November 8 demonetisation drive saw the bank credit shrinking by a whopping Rs 61,000 crore, or 0.8 per cent, during the fortnight to November 25, show the latest RBI data. But at the same time, the note ban also had a positive effect, as borrowers, including some default accounts, paid back as much as Rs 66,000 crore during the same period. In sharp contrast, during the same fortnight, banks received huge inflows as people deposited as much as Rs 4.03 trillion into the accounts, which as of December 9 crossed Rs 12 trillion, putting all calculations of the Government into a tizzy. Analysts supporting the cash recall move initially claimed that at least 20 per cent, or a little over Rs 3 trillion - out of the total Rs 15.4 trillion of the banned bank notes - would not come back to the banking system, helping the Government net a windfall from the exercise whose stated aim is to root out black money and curb corruption. This, they claimed, would be achieved by writing off a similar amount from the balance sheet of the central bank and then transferring the same the Government as surplus. But with the near total return of the banned notes, all these calculations have gone out of the window. The outstanding credit of banking system stood at Rs 72.92 trillion as of November 25, according to the Reserve Bank data. The year-on-year credit growth was just 6.6 per cent, down from 9.3 per cent a year ago.

Options before government if GST not implemented by September 2017 - Even as Arun Jaitley on Sunday said that the last possible day to pass GST is September 16, many are discussing of what would happen in a worst case scenario, if government were to miss even this deadline? The government is required to implement the Goods and Services Tax by September 16, or there would be no tax law altogether after that since the validity of the recently passed GST bill lapses by then, point out experts. The Parliamentary logjam, with the opposition being relentless in its attack on demonetisation, has impacted government’s planned timeline on GST. “If the GST doesn't come into force by September 16, there is one view that existing specified tax legislations would cease to have effect. Hence, the government is working towards ensuring that GST is implemented before 16th September. It needs to be seen that if the same is not achieved whether the Government has an alternative plan,” said Dharmesh Panchal, India - West Indirect Tax leader, PwC. Experts say that the government may not be in a position to levy any indirect taxes as the current taxes would cease to exist while its replacement GST would not have come into force.

CPI inflation to remain below 5% in first half of 2017: HSBC - The Reserve Bank is expected to meet its target 'comfortably' as CPI inflation is likely to remain well below 5 per cent over the first half of 2017, an HSBC report says.

"We expect CPI inflation to remain well below 5 per cent over the first half of 2017," HSBC said in a research note. Retail inflation fell to a two-year low of 3.63 per cent in November following the Centre's demonetisation drive that led to lower consumer spending on various food items including vegetables.
