Sify Editors @ 18:20 PM

Dipen Shah, Senior Vice President, Head PCG Research, Kotak Securities, has this view to share: Markets fell by more than 1% on Monday, in line with the fall in the US markets on Friday and the weak European / Asian markets during the day day. Global markets were weak following weak data across US and Europe. Crude prices have also fallen on indications that, there may be no deal to freeze output at the OPEC meeting.

The important triggers for the market in the next few weeks will be the meeting of OPEC members this week and the RBI meeting early October, which will be closely watched for any rate cuts. CPI inflation has cooled off to near 5% in August 2016 and that, along with the fall in IIP, has raised hopes of a rate cut in the ensuing RBI meeting.

Despite relatively higher valuations, markets have been resilient, largely on the back of consistent global flows. One needs to be selective in stock-picking and must have a longer time horizon while investing in current markets.

Sensex falls; U.S. presidential debate in focus

Indian shares dropped about half a percent on Monday and were headed for their second straight fall, tracking weakness in Asian peers while investors shifted their focus from central banks to American politics.

The first U.S. presidential debate between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, scheduled at 2100 ET (0100 GMT), will be the best opportunity for the two candidates to put to rest questions about their fitness for the White House with the Nov. 8 election fast approaching.

About 20 percent of the electorate remains undecided, a Reuters/Ipsos polling shows, far higher at this stage in the campaign than the 12 percent undecided four years ago.

"I think there could be some shift away from equities to the safer assets ahead of the U.S. elections across the markets globally," said Ambareesh Baliga, a Mumbai-based independent market analyst.

Tata Steel trades modestly higher ahead of company's trade union talks in UK

Tata Steel is in focus today, with the company scheduled to hold discussions with trade union representatives of its UK steelworks to settle the deadlock over a 15-billion-pound pension scheme for its workers/

The dispute stands in the way of the proposed merger of Tata Steel's European operations with German rival ThyssenKrupp.

According to reports the focus of talks will be on breaking a deadlock over the pension scheme, the main obstacle to a rescue of its Port Talbot unit in Wales.

It is said that Tata Steel and ThyssenKrupp could formalise the deal within weeks, even if the pension issue has not been resolved, but the tie-up would be contingent on resolving the pensions dispute.

Since the British Steel Pension Scheme is in huge deficit, Tata and ThyssenKrupp are reluctant to saddle their new joint venture with the pensions of 130,000 retired and working members.

While the previous government, under David Cameron had proposed a law change to reduce payouts by altering the inflation link for rises, the Theresa May - led present government is against the plan.

Tata Steel has announced that it would continue to responsibly develop options to identify the best prospects for the future sustainability of its UK operations and the best outcome for members of the British Steel Pension Scheme.

Tata Steel shares are currently up nearly 1% at Rs 375.40.

Rain Industries Ltd has stated in a filing to the stock exchanges that its wholly-owned subsidiary Rain Cements Limited has commenced operations of Waste Heat recovery based Power Plant to generate up to 7 MW of gross electrical energy from the waste heat and the flue gases evolved during the cement manufacturing process at Boincheruvupalli Village, Kurnool District, Andhra Pradesh.

Rain Cements completed the project at a cost of Rs. 70 crores. It  funded the projects from internal accruals.

The process of waste heat generation is environmental friendly that will bring down the flue gas temperatures. The heat recovery from the flue gases not only saves large quantities of fossil fuels but also substantially reduces the cost of power generation, the company said in its filing.
