IMPORTANT THEMES OF THE DAY:

SGX Nifty is indicating a muted open for our stock market after a poor day of trading at Dalal Street in yesterday’s trade

The sentiments for the benchmark Nifty was spooked by nervousness on backdrop of reports that Chinese manufacturing had weakened. Also hurting sentiments were sluggish December auto sales numbers and then revenue collection from Goods and Services Tax (GST) which fell to Rs 94,726 crore did not go well with the street. Investors were also seen cautious ahead of corporate results which will begin to roll in next week.

The only positive takeaway this morning is that overnight the Dow closed 19 points higher, recovering from an early plunge of 399 points that was primarily sparked by fears about China’s slowing economy.

But this morning Wall Street’s index futures were seen tumbling again and Asia looked set to decline after Apple Inc. added to global growth concerns by cutting its guidance. The positive takeaway from Apple related growth concerns is that it will be now harder for Trump to defend Trade war. Yes, the wild swings show that uncertainty will keep on gripping markets until U.S-China truce.
