Fut-March/India-50)closed around 10384 on Thursday(22^nd Feb), edged
down by almost 0.30%, but off the low on FNO expiry related short
covering/roll over in the bitten down banks & financials after some
rebound in US stock future on*lower USD and some fall in US bond yields
Fut made an opening session high of 10415 and a day low of 10360 in a
day of range-bound trading.
Banks were upbeat on encouraging recovery from the stressed steel assets
to the tune of almost 77% against the earlier estimate of less than 50%.
But Bhushan steel bid by the Tata steel and some other good steel assets
may be an exceptional issue. Also, the market may be worried about
various bidding conditions by the NCLT under IBC process on “related”
party issues to prevent backdoor entry of the existing defaulter
Hopes of PSBS merger and management rejig to prevent such future loan
fraud may have also boosted the sentiment of the banks on Thursday.
Indian bond yield also soared to 7.78% on hawkish RBI minutes, gradually
changing its policy guidance for a hike, if the present trajectory of
higher inflation and higher oil continues in the months ahead. USDINR
also surged above 65 levels on the concern of outflow as US bond yield
is now eyeing the 3% psychological mark.
Overall, Indian market tumbled by almost 6% for the February FNO expiry
series on higher bond yields and PNB “loot” (theft) coupled with the
imposition of LTCGT (long-term capital gain tax), breach of fiscal
discipline and a politically populist budget. Bank Nifty lost around 9%
and PSBS plunged by almost 16%, while Nifty Midcap corrected by a good
10% as valuations are also frothy amid mixed report card.
The market may be concerned over ballooning banking NPA under different
forms, which may be far from over despite repeated assurances by the
banks. The resultant impact of fiscal deficit amid repeated bailouts of
the PSBS (public sector banks) by the government may be a great headwind
for the market. Apart from corporate NPA, conditions for stressed MSME
assets are also very worrying.
The PNB fiasco and the subsequent fear-mongering among Indian borrowers
& lenders and witch hunting may be also negative for the Indian business
& industry, which may have also an adverse effect on the employment
scenario of the country.
The market may be also worried that the present PNB loan fraud case is
not an isolated and exceptional issue; there might be many more such
cases, considering the link between bankers, borrowers and politicians
and the overall corruption angle.
The present PNB fraud may be just a tip of the ice bug. The market is
also concerned that the PNB saga came into the limelight only after the
accused were allowed to leave the country just like previous KFA fiasco.
On Thursday, Indian market was helped by private banks, selected PSBS,
exporters/Techs/Pharma (higher USD), reality (no RERA on existing
projects and renewed optimism over affordable housing), while dragged by
automakers, FMCG, media, metals (some controversy about NCLT bids for
stressed steel assets), consumption, energy/OMC and infra stocks. Apart
from higher USDINR, renewed optimism about prospects of techs has also
