"The system as a whole is unprofitable due to high credit costs at dominant state-owned (Indian) banks," Moody's said, adding the profitability is "distinctively weak" for Indian banks than others in the five-nation BRICS bloc.

Key Market News

The outlook for global growth in 2019 has dimmed for the first time, according to Reuters polls of economists who said the US-China trade war & tightening financial conditions would trigger the next downturn. At the start of 2018, optimism about a robust global economic outlook was almost unanimous among respondents. But Reuters polls of more than 500 economists taken this month showed a downgrade to the outlook for 18 of 44 economies polled, with 23 unchanged. Only three were marginally upgraded. "There has been an abrupt 'stop' of capital flows to EM over recent months, which has created painful consequences for EM with large external deficits," said Adam Slater, a lead economist at Oxford Economics.

International Energy Agency chief Fatih Birol said on Monday he is not worried Saudi Arabia will cut oil supply in response to any potential sanctions over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi but urged common sense as political developments may impact energy markets. He said he did not think that Saudi Arabia would cut production, but he has "significant worries" about the market because of falling supply from Venezuela and Iran amid strong demand growth.
