Asian shares mixed despite firm cues

Trump says deal with China close
US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday the United States was in the “final throes” in its attempt to reach a trade deal with China, but that at the same time Washington stands with protesters in Hong Kong, where it wants to see democracy. The Congressional legislation to back protesters has greatly angered Beijing and Trump has been vague about whether he would sign or veto it as he tries to strike a deal with China to end the trade war.

Fadnavis resigns, Thackeray new Maharashtra CM
Shiv Sena head Uddhav Thackeray will lead a Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra after Devendra Fadnavis resigned as chief minister conceding that the BJP does not have the requisite majority, barely three days after taking oath in a dramatic early morning closed-door ceremony in the Raj Bhavan. Thackeray is likely to be sworn in as the CM on Thursday at Shivaji Park, Mumbai. Fadnavis’ resignation came within hours of the Supreme Court ordering that his government must submit itself to a floor test on Wednesday to be conducted by a pro tem Speaker. BJP’s ally Ajit Pawar, who took oath as deputy CM along with Fadnavis last Saturday, resigned soon after the order.

RBI raises red flag over Mudra loans
Reserve Bank deputy governor MK Jain on Tuesday warned bankers about the growing stress in Mudra loans, which has crossed more than Rs 3.21 lakh crore system-wide, and asked them to monitor such loans closely as unsustainable credit growth in the sector can risk the system. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched the Mudra scheme in April 2015 to offer speedier credit up to Rs 10 lakh to small businesses which are non- corporate, non-farm small/micro enterprises and which normally do not get bank funds due to their poor and mostly no credit rating. .

CCI probe finds bearings collusion by Tata Steel unit
An Indian antitrust investigation has found that units of Tata Steel, Sweden’s SKF and Germany’s Schaeffler colluded on the pricing of bearings, a report seen by Reuters shows, opening them up to potential fines. The Competition Commission of India (CCI) began an investigation in 2017 after allegations that five companies colluded on bearings prices from 2009-2014 to pass higher raw material costs onto customers in the auto sector.

Telcos to defer 5G rollout for 5 years
Indian mobile companies are likely to push back 5G network deployments by at least five years due to exorbitant base prices, insufficient spectrum, and unavailability of newer bands. “We will push out 5G for at least five years. That's the operator perspective,” Rajan S Mathews, director-general of the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), told ET. COAI represents all private telecom players—Bharti Airtel, Reliance Jio and Vodafone Idea—as well as gear makers such as Huawei, Ericsson, Cisco, and Ciena.

Pharma firms agree to cap drug margins
Domestic drug industry and trade have agreed to the government’s proposal to cap trade margins for all medicines outside price control at 30%, a move that will reduce the prices of nearly 80% of formulations. A consensus to this effect was reached at a meeting held on Friday between the drug pricing regulator, pharma lobby groups and industry associations, said people present at the meeting. The 30% cap on trade margins was preferred over other proposals such as imposing a flat 100% trade margin on all medicines, including those within price control.

Ind-Ra predicts 4.7% growth in Q2, 5.6% in FY20
Indian economy may have slowed for the sixth consecutive quarter in July-September to 4.7%, Fitch group firm India Ratings and Research said on Tuesday, as it lowered GDP growth forecast for current fiscal for the fourth time. The Indian economy expanded 5% in April-June, its slowest annual pace since 2013. The 4.7% projection for the second quarter of the current fiscal would mark six consecutive quarters of slowing growth, a first since 2012. Ind-Ra further revised GDP growth forecast for FY20 to 5.6% for the fourth time.
