MUMBAI: Despite the Reserve Bank making credit cheaper, lending rates are rising for borrowers after accounting for inflation and falling economic growth, a foreign brokerage said on Monday. The weighted average lending rate in the system is up 0.08 percent since April, economists at Bank of America Merrill Lynch said in a report. Economic growth has fallen to a six-year-low of 5 percent in the June quarter and is widely expected to slip further with almost all key components of the economy contracting or falling since the first three months. The RBI has responded by cutting rates by 110 basis to a nine-year-low of 5.40 percent since April courtesy low inflation. The RBI has been blaming banks for slower transmission of its policy moves into their lending rates and continuously nudging them to cut more, so that credit pick up can increase to help the broader growth. It has also helped make adequate liquidity available. "Growth is still falling as real lending rates are still … [Read more...] about RBI has cut rates by 110 bps since April, but average lending rates goes up 8 bps: Report
The new year promises to bring more gains for India’s sovereign bond market, which has rallied hard and broken a five-quarter losing streak to end 2018 on a high. Pacific Investment Management Co says it may raise its holdings of rupee debt, which has topped returns among major emerging Asian markets in the second half. Some analysts predict the benchmark 10-year yield to drop below 7 per cent to levels not seen since November 2017, as rising bets for interest-rate cuts add more legs to an advance spurred by falling oil prices and the central bank’s bond purchases. “We are bullish on Indian bonds and find the current levels quite attractive to add,” said Roland Mieth, Singapore-based emerging-markets portfolio manager at Pimco, which oversees about $1.7 trillion. “Supply-demand dynamics have become positive and inflation remains under control. We also think the Reserve Bank of India is going to be dovish going forward after the appointment of Governor … [Read more...] about Pimco bullish on Indian bonds amid rate cut talk
China stocks ended Monday firmer, as investors hoped for more stimulus measures to shore up the slowing economy after a interbank lending rate cut. The blue-chip CSI300 index rose 0.8 per cent, to 3,907.93, while the Shanghai Composite Index added 0.6 per cent to 2,909.20. China's central bank unexpectedly trimmed a closely watched lending rate on Monday, the first such cut in more than four years and a signal to markets that policymakers are ready to act to prop up slowing growth. Analysts say the cut also shows the central bank is keen to ease investor worries that higher retail inflation would prevent it from delivering fresh stimulus. "I expected an easing move from the PBOC, just didn't know when," said a Hong Kong-based portfolio manager. "The (high) Consumer Price Index (CPI) was only pig CPI. Everything else is in big trouble." China's strongest consumer inflation in nearly eight years won't deter the central bank from cutting a key interest rate next week, as slowing … [Read more...] about China stocks rise after interbank lending rate cut
