Stock Market in India
India - Stock MarketEconomic growth likely slowed in the second quarter of this fiscal year, which runs from April 2018 to March 2019. In Q2, the merchandise trade deficit increased by nearly 50% compared to the same quarter a year earlier, primarily due to surging oil imports. More positively, business activity in the private sector increased in Q2 at a faster rate than in Q1. Meanwhile, assembly elections are scheduled to take place across five states from 12 November and 7 December. These polls could become litmus tests for the political support of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) heading into the 2019 general elections. Possibly with this in mind, the BJP government has been pressuring the autonomously-run Reserve Bank of India for more accommodative monetary policy in recent weeks. This has sparked rare public rebukes from leading central bank officials.
