Sensex Trades Marginally Lower; HUL, Infosys & Tech Mahindra Top Losers

Asian share markets are lower today as relief rally hopes on Wall Street quickly soured by a slide in US stock futures.

The Nikkei is down 0.6% while the Shanghai Composite is down 1.1%. The Hang Seng fell 1.5%.

In US stock markets, Wall Street indices ended higher on Monday as gains from banks and a rebound in market-leading tech shares supported a broad-based rally.

The Dow Jones rallied 2% while the Nasdaq Composite ended higher by 1.6%.

Note that US stocks have been falling continuously and what followed last week was Wall Street's longest streak of weekly declines since the dotcom bust more than 20 years ago.

Back home, Indian share markets are trading on a negative note.

Market participants are tracking shares of Adani Ports, Grasim, Info Edge and Metropolis Healthcare as these companies are scheduled to announce their Q4 results later today.

Meanwhile, the Rs 8.1 bn initial public offering (IPO) of Aether Industries opened for subscription today.

EXPOSED: The Big banks' odd $1.1 billion bet...

They won't say this in their interviews...

But banks like UBS, Goldman Sachs, Citibank and Standard Chartered have collectively invested over $1.1 Billion into this revolutionary technology...

Thanks to a projected 100x growth over the next 10 years!

------------------------------

The regulator wants such a scheme to be based on an index that comprises the top 250 companies in terms of market capitalisation.

There's a crux, however. A mutual fund can have either an actively managed ELSS scheme or a passively managed, but not both.

The markets regulator also laid down guidelines on how debt passive funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs) and index funds should be managed.

To ensure liquidity of the ETFs on the stocks, the mutual funds would be required to appoint at least two market makers, who are members of the stock exchanges.

We will keep you updated on the latest developments from this space. Stay tuned.

Speaking of mutual funds, have a look at the chart below which shows the inflows into mutual fund equity investments for the past couple of months.

April 2022 was the 14th straight month of inflows.

This just shows that despite the hawkish US Fed stance, rising inflation, crude oil concerns and the Russia-Ukraine war, retail investors' confidence in the India growth story remains intact.
