Analysis of Top Gainer and Loser

Reliance is the top gainer in today's market as it is going to purchase crude oil cargoes from the United States for the first time because of lower prices while the stock price was at a support level.

Bharti Airtel is the top loser in today's market as profit booking was seen in the stock as the company is set to hit the market soon with ultra-cheap handsets under Rs.2,000 and it is going to put pressure on the balance sheet of the company for the short term.

Key Market News

The Reserve Bank of India maintained an unchanged stance on policy rates (Repo rate) at 6%, but the central bank has decreased the SLR (Statutory Liquidity Ratio) by 50 bps to 19.5% from 20%. But cautious news in this policy was the decreased real GVA growth for 2017-18 to 6.7% from 7.3% and increased inflation forecast to 4.2-4.6% for the second half due to increasing global oil prices and uncertainty over Kharif output.
