Global Stock Market Key Events

Global share markets were mixed on Thursday as investor relief over a deal on US borrowing limits was offset by uncertainty over the departure of a senior Fed official and lingering North Korean tensions. European markets perked up on its key central bank meeting.

While tensions over Pyongyang's weekend nuclear test have abated, there are fears the North is planning to launch another missile this weekend, riling an already furious Unites States.

The key events this week:

  • China trade figures are anticipated to show another month of solid export growth, according to Bloomberg.
  • ECB President Mario Draghi will address a much-anticipated press conference after the central bank's policy meeting.
  • In the US, data on first-time unemployment claims and productivity may add clues to the Fed's policy path.

Oil Dips on Fears that Hurricane Irma Could hit Crude Shipments

Oil prices dipped on Thursday over fears that Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean could interrupt crude shipments in and out of the United States, and as Libyan output began to recover from disruptions.

However, prices received some support from rising demand in the United States, where Gulf Coast refineries are restarting in the wake of Hurricane Harvey that hit the region less than two weeks ago.

From the IPO Space

The initial public offering of contract electronics manufacturer Dixon Technologies Ltd was fully covered midway through the second day on Thursday driven by strong demand from retail and institutional investors.

The public offering of 2.37 million shares, excluding the anchor allotment, received bids for a little over 2.47 million shares, as per stock-exchange data. The book was subscribed 1.05 times.

Further, the IPO of road developer Bharat Road Network Ltd (BRNL), promoted by SREI Infrastructure Finance Ltd, continued its poor show on the second day, subscribed just 25%. That's little progress over the first day, when it was covered 22%.

The public offering of 29.3 million shares received bids for a little more than 7.1 million shares.

Today is the last date of offer for both the above IPOs.

So, do these companies have sound business models? Are they leaving enough money on the table for investors? We have released our IPO note for both the above IPOs. You can access the same in our IPO section.

Meanwhile, ICICI Lombard General Insurance Co.'s IPO is also set to hit the markets from 15 to 19 September.
