A divergent trend for index constituents caused modest losses for key benchmark indices. While metal and PSU bank stocks rose, shares of telecom companies and oil exploration and production (E&P) firms dropped. Benchmark indices witnessed high intraday volatility. The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, provisionally settled above the psychological 28,000 level, having alternately moved above and below that mark intraday trade. Earlier, the Sensex had fallen below the psychological 28,000 level amid high volatility in mid-morning trade. The market breadth indicating the overall health of the market was positive. The Sensex was provisionally off 96.54 points or 0.34% at 28,090.52. The BSE Mid-Cap index was provisionally up 1.11%, outperforming the Sensex.

Quantitatively, the rainfall over the country as a whole during the second half of the season (August to September) is likely to be 84% of long period average (LPA), with a model error of plus/minus 8%. From April to July 2015, El Nino conditions have strengthened from weak to moderate level.

2. Meanwhile, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) kept its benchmark lending rate viz. the repo rate unchanged at 7.25% after a monetary policy review today, 4 August 2015. The RBI also kept the cash reserve ratio (CRR) of scheduled banks unchanged at 4% of net demand and time liability (NDTL). RBI Governor Dr. Raghuram G. Rajan said that the RBI has retained the accommodative stance of monetary policy. As the RBI awaits greater transmission of its front-loaded repo rate cuts since January 2015, it will monitor developments for emerging room for more accommodation, Rajan said in the written monetary policy statement. While the RBI has cut repo rate by 75 basis points since January 2015, the median base lending rates of banks has fallen by only around 30 basis points so far.
