CMP: Rs 1,144.40

Sebi proposes to allow MFs and portfolio managers in commodity derivatives


 


The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) proposes to permit mutual funds (MFs) and portfolio managers (PMs) to participate in exchange-traded commodity derivatives. 


 


On Thursday, it issued a consultation paper on this, seeking reactions by the end of this month — on allowing them, how and a possible regulatory framework. 


 

This is the market regulator’s second move to allow institutional participants in commodity derivatives. Earlier, it had decided to allow category-III alternative investment funds or hedge funds. Allowing MFs and PMs would be a second move in the direction of broadbasing the commodity derivative segment, to improve liquidity and permit institutional players. READ MORE

CHRIS WOOD OF CLSA ON BITCOINS


 

The commencement of Bitcoin futures trading next week represents the cryptocurrency phenomenon entering the formal financial world. It means that Bitcoins can be bought with leverage, which is both a positive and a negative since it means that any future collapse in prices could cause collateral damage in the financial system. It also means that Bitcoin can be sold short and hedged.

EMKAY GLOBAL ON GUJARAT POLL OUTCOME AND IMPACT ON MARKETS


 


Emkay Research commissioned a digital survey across Gujarat’s prominent cities to gauge the electorate sentiment ahead of the state election, with a special focus on the impact of GST dislocations and demonetization. The sample was restricted to urban electorate, who have access to digital media, which may have been influenced by the high-decibel digital campaign run by the key political parties


 


Outcome of the survey strengthens our hypothesis, which foresaw increasing leaning of political expediency determining economic policies, viz. doubling of farm income, job creation, boosting of disposable income in the hands of households etc. specifically seen as an aftermath to the above scenario to enhance its efforts to improve success rating for the 2019 general election. We remain tilted towards Consumption, Rural and Agri theme and expect a bigger push in the next two Union Budgets.
