  • 1. Market outlook – 31.1.2014 Market seen opening higher. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Thursday, 30 January 2014 laid out a road map to deal with a surge in bad loans in the banking system. The framework outlines a corrective action plan that will offer incentives for early identification of stressed assets by banks, timely revamp of accounts considered to be unviable, and prompt steps for recovery or sale of assets in the case of loans at the risk of turning bad. On Thursday, 30 January 2014 the central bank issued final rules similar to the measures outlined in the working paper after taking public feedback into account. Lenders will need to carve out as special category of assets termed special mention accounts (SMAs) in which early signs of stress are visible. Accounts within this category will be put under three sub-categories, based on the period for which their principal or interest payments are overdue. The duration of overdue payments can range from under 30 days to 90 days. Loan repayments that are more than 90 days overdue are classified as non-performing assets (NPAs) under existing regulations. If a borrower's interest or principal payments are overdue by more than 60 days, a joint lenders' forum must be formed by the bankers for early resolution of stress, RBI said. The new rules also offer incentives to lenders to quickly and collectively agree to a resolution plan by offering better regulatory treatment for stressed assets where such a plan is under implementation. As a way to discourage long-drawn-out negotiations between bankers, RBI said accelerated provisioning will be applicable if no agreement can be reached. Restructuring proposals in accounts where the aggregate exposure of banks is above Rs 500 crore will now be subjected to assessment by an independent evaluation committee (IEC) of experts. “The IEC will look into the viability aspects after ensuring that the terms of restructuring are fair to the lenders,” said RBI. The committee will submit its recommendations to the corporate debt restructuring (CDR) cell within a period of 30 days. “Appropriate incentive structures may be built so as to provide greater role to PE (private equity) firms and other institutions in restructuring of troubled-company accounts. These institutions can be expected not only to bring additional funds for restructuring, but also bring in expertise for management of the business unit in question,” RBI said in a statement. Further, banks will not be allowed to offer finance to such specialized entities put together for acquisition of troubled companies. In the interest of better information sharing within the banking system, RBI said it will set up a central repository of information on large credits to collect, store and disseminate credit data to lenders. For this, banks will have to furnish credit information on all their borrowers having aggregate fund-based and non-fund-based exposure of Rs 5 crore and above. India's consumer inflation should ease in the next two months, and will fall to 8% by the end of the year, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Raghuram Rajan was quoted as saying in an interview with TV news channel on Thursday, 30 January 2014. The comments came after
  • 2. the RBI surprisingly raised the repo rate by 25 basis points on Tuesday, 28 January 2014. The consumer price index eased to a three-month low of 9.87% in December 2013. Japanese industrial production rose 1.1% on month in December, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said Friday, on a demand rush ahead of an April sales tax increase. It also comes after a 0.1% decline in November. The increase in industrial output was due to a rise in production in the general purpose and production machinery sectors as well as electronic parts and devices. Meanwhile, Japanese consumer prices rose at their sharpest rate in over five years in December, the government said Friday. Consumer prices also increased for the whole of 2013, the first annual increase in five years, according to data released by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. The core consumer price index, which excludes volatile fresh-food costs, climbed 1.3% from a year earlier in December, faster than a 1.2% gain in the previous month, according to data released by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. It was the biggest rise since a 1.9% increase in October 2008. The core index for 2013 increased 0.4% after a 0.1% fall the previous year. The CPI including fresh food prices rose 1.6% on year in December. Employment data released Friday also suggested a strongly recovering economy. The jobless rate fell to 3.7% of the work force, down from 4% in November and the lowest rate since December 2007. The closely watched ratio of available jobs to applicants also improved to 1.03, meaning 103 jobs were on offer for every 100 job seekers. US stocks rebounded on Thursday, 30 January 2014 as investors welcomed data showing a robust pace of growth in the economy in the final quarter of last year, while upbeat earnings from Facebook Inc. boosted the tech sector. The US economy expanded rapidly in the final quarter of 2013, the Commerce Department said on Thursday, 30 January 2014 as consumers shrugged off a government shutdown, with the data fueling hopes of even faster growth ahead. The gross domestic product grew at 3.2% annual pace. The economy's strong year-end performance follows on the heels of a 4.1% growth rate in the third quarter. For the full year, US growth slowed to 1.9% from 2.8% in 2012. The Federal Reserve on Wednesday, 29 January 2014, took another gradual step toward exiting its controversial bond-buying program, remaining stoic in the face of market turmoil. As expected, the Fed decided to reduce the pace of monthly asset purchases to $65 billion, from January's $75 billion. The Fed will purchase mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $30 billion per month and add to its holdings of Treasurys at a pace of $35 billion per month beginning in February. The Fed also signaled that it is likely to keep reducing its purchases in the coming months, citing a pickup in economic activity and improvement in the labor market. In addition to proceeding with plans to scale back its bond buying, the Fed made no changes to its other main policy plank: its pledge to keep interest rates low for some time to come. It

  • 6. Market settled with small gains on last trading day of the week and month after seeing high intraday volatility throughout the day.

Indian stocks today, 31 January 2014 snapped five-day falling trend.Sensex was up 0.08% to 20,513.85 and Nifty was up 0.26% to 6,089.50.

Total FDI inflows in the first eight months for the current fiscal year that ends in March were down 2% from a year earlier at $15.46 billion, compared with $15.85 billion during the year-ago period, the statement said. India's consumer inflation should ease in the next two months, and will fall to 8% by the end of the year, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Raghuram Rajan said in an interview with TV news channel on Thursday, 30 January 2014. The consumer price index eased to a threemonth low of 9.87% in December 2013. "There is some disinflation in the system. What was 9.87 is going to come down further next month, and probably a little further into March," Rajan said. "We are setting rates at a level that we think is consistent with that disinflation for us to get some bite and for the inflation in the system to come down to about 8% at the end of the year," Rajan said. Rajan warned of a breakdown in global policy coordination after the Federal Reserve further cut stimulus, noting how emerging markets helped pull the global economy out of crisis starting in late 2008. "Industrial countries have to play a part in restoring that, and they can't at this point wash their hands off and say we'll do what we need to and you do the adjustment. Fortunately the IMF has stopped giving this as its mantra, but you hear from the industrial countries: We'll do what we have to do, the markets will adjust and you can decide what you want to do," Rajan said. "We need better cooperation and unfortunately that's not been forthcoming so far," he said. Rajan said developed countries might not like adjustments emerging markets take to cope with the outflows, without elaborating on specific measures.

The government had on Thursday, 30 January 2014, raised the cap on number of subsidised domestic LPG cylinders from 9 to 12 per year effective from 1 February 2014. The government agreed to demand from 9 to 12 after Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi told Prime Minister Manmohan Singh the present allocation wasn't enough. The hike will cost the government between Rs 3300 crore and Rs 4400 crore in additional subsidies it will have to pay state-run fuel retailers, according to estimates by the oil ministry. The government already pays about Rs 46000 crore every year to subsidize cooking gas.

  • 9. Suven Life Sciences rose 3.7% after the firm said it has received 3 product patents one each from Canada, China and India corresponding to NCEs for treatment of disorders associated with neurodegenerative diseases. European stock markets extended losses in midmorning action on Friday, after data showed euro-zone inflation fell unexpectedly in January, further adding to fears of deflation in the region. Most Asian markets were closed today, 31 January 2014, for the Lunar new year holiday. Trading in US index futures indicated that the Dow could fall 84 points at the opening bell on Friday, 31 January 2014. US stocks rebounded on Thursday, 30 January 2014, as investors welcomed data showing a robust pace of growth in the economy in the final quarter of last year, while upbeat earnings from Facebook Inc. boosted the tech sector The annual rate of inflation across the 18 countries that shared the euro fell to a record low in January. The European Union's statistics agency said Friday consumer prices rose by just 0.7% in the 12 months to January, down from an 0.8% annual rate of inflation in December, and further below the ECB's target of just under 2%. Eurostat Friday said the number of people without jobs across the 17 countries that then shared the euro fell by the largest amount since April 2007. The statistics agency said the euro zone's unemployment rate was unchanged in December at 12%, having revised the November figure down from 12.1%. But the number of people without jobs fell by 129,000, the largest drop in a single month since April 2007, well before the onset of the financial crisis. The decline in the number of jobless was led by Spain, but also included Germany, Italy and Portugal. French consumer spending inched down in December, as households cut purchases of clothes and accessories, the national statistics bureau said Friday. Consumer spending in the euro zone's second-largest economy dropped 0.1% last month, but posted a 1.4% increase on the year. Spain's inflation rate was unchanged in January from the previous month and continues to be well below the European Central Bank's own target, preliminary data released Friday show.
  • 10. In its preliminary estimate, the National Statistics Institute, known as INE, said Spain's European Union-harmonized consumer price index rose 0.3% on the year, the same as in December. The ECB aims to keep the annual inflation rate in the euro zone below but close to 2% over the medium term. By Spain's own methodology, January's CPI increased by 0.2%, compared with a 0.3% rise in December. UK consumers were the most optimistic in over six years in January, buoyed by improvements in both personal finances and the economy, a survey showed Friday. The monthly consumer confidence index from research firm GfK rose to -7 in January from 13 in December. That was the highest level since September 2007 and more than reversed the single-point declines reported in the index in recent months. Japanese industrial production rose 1.1% on month in December, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said Friday, on a demand rush ahead of an April sales tax increase. It also comes after a 0.1% decline in November. The increase in industrial output was due to a rise in production in the general purpose and production machinery sectors as well as electronic parts and devices. Meanwhile, Japanese consumer prices rose at their sharpest rate in over five years in December, the government said Friday. Consumer prices also increased for the whole of 2013, the first annual increase in five years, according to data released by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. The core consumer price index, which excludes volatile fresh-food costs, climbed 1.3% from a year earlier in December, faster than a 1.2% gain in the previous month, according to data released by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. It was the biggest rise since a 1.9% increase in October 2008. The core index for 2013 increased 0.4% after a 0.1% fall the previous year. The CPI including fresh food prices rose 1.6% on year in December. Employment data released Friday also suggested a strongly recovering economy. The jobless rate fell to 3.7% of the work force, down from 4% in November and the lowest rate since December 2007. The closely watched ratio of available jobs to applicants also improved to 1.03, meaning 103 jobs were on offer for every 100 job seekers. . The US economy expanded rapidly in the final quarter of 2013, the Commerce Department said on Thursday, 30 January 2014, as consumers shrugged off a government shutdown, with the data fuelling hopes of even faster growth ahead. The gross domestic product grew at 3.2% annual pace. The number of people who sought US unemployment benefits near the end of January rose to the highest level in six weeks, but it's unclear whether the increase is the residue of holidayseason distortions or reflects a deterioration in the labor market. The less-volatile, four-week average rose by a fraction.
  • 11. Meanwhile, Janet Yellen will be sworn in as chairwoman of the Federal Reserve on Monday, 3 February 2014, the US central bank announced Thursday, 30 January 2014. Yellen will replace outgoing Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, whose term as chairman expires on Friday, 31 January 2014. The Federal Reserve on 29 January 2014 took another gradual step toward exiting its controversial bond-buying program. As expected, the Fed decided, after a monetary policy review, to reduce the pace of monthly asset purchases to $65 billion, from January's $75 billion. The Fed also signalled that it is likely to keep reducing its purchases in the coming months, citing a pickup in economic activity and improvement in the labour market
