Key Market News

Index of Industrial Production (IIP) grew at a five-year high of 8.4 percent in November. This rebound partly reflects the strength seen in exports, points to the sharp payback from GST-related disruptions and some recovery from the lingering impact of cash ban.

Retail inflation spiked to a 17-month high of 5.21 percent in December, which was much above RBI's comfort zone of 4 percent.

India's wholesale inflation eased marginally to 3.58 percent in December after hitting an eight-month high of 3.93 percent in November. The wholesale inflation rate, measured by WPI, is a marker for price movements in bulk buys for traders and broadly mirrors trends in shop-end prices.
