Results Corner

Market participants will track Canara Bank, Eicher Motors, Dilip Buildcon, HT Media, IDFC First Bank, Vakrangee, Syndicate Bank among others as they announce their March quarter results today.

Global Stock Market Drivers

Stocks dropped globally, and US equity futures retreated on Thursday as the deadline approached for China and the US to raise reciprocal tariffs.

The yen climbed with gold and Treasuries as investors sought havens, while the yuan fell to its weakest since January.

Investors are training their focus on the world's biggest economies as key bilateral talks approach. China's top trade negotiator, Liu He, is scheduled to be in the US today. Discussions will resume hours after concerns flared again about the strength of the Chinese economy.

Meanwhile, simmering geopolitical tension elsewhere, from North Korea firing at least one projectile on Thursday to renewed stress between America and Iran, added to the gloomy mood.

Crude oil fell, and emerging-markets stocks tumbled. Developing-nation currencies weakened, with the Korean won leading declines.

Here are some notable events coming up:

  • Trade and producer-prices data of the US will be announced.
  • The US will release the April CPI report today.

Oil Prices Slide

Oil prices fell on Thursday as an escalating trade battle between the United States and China outweighed upward pressure from a surprise decline in US inventories of crude.

Brent crude oil futures were at US$69.72 a barrel, down 65 cents from their previous settlement and heading for their second consecutive weekly loss.

US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at US$61.43 per barrel, down 69 cents and set for a third week of losses.

Heightened tensions between the world's two biggest economies cloud the outlook for global growth and thus oil demand.

US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that China "broke the deal" in trade talks with Washington and would face stiff tariffs if no agreement is reached.

Higher tariffs are set to take effect today, during Chinese Vice Premier Liu He's two-day visit to Washington from Thursday.

Oil prices have had some support from signs of tighter global supply on the back of production cuts by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies including Russia.

Brent and WTI have risen more than 30% so far this year.

Supplies have also been tightened by US sanctions on OPEC members Venezuela and Iran.
