Hero Moto Corp has started its production facility in Colombia, a first establishment outside India.

– Metal companies went up as China is the biggest consumer of steel, copper and aluminum. Oil companies too gained because of the fact that international crude oil prices moving up. Many Indian firms are involved in the refining process of the Crude oil and then exports them to another countries; higher oil prices will make them earn more revenue.

– Another reason for the markets to cherish is the probable decision of government on removal of STT (Securities Transaction Tax) from the F and O markets. Recently a report has been tabled by a select committee, in which a suggestion has been made to abolish STT from the market. This may turn out as a big relief for the domestic as well as for foreign investors.

– Steel shares led rally in metal and mining stocks after media reports suggested that an Indian government body has found evidence that rising imports of hot-rolled steel products pose a threat to the domestic industry. Government might take some steps in order to support domestic steel producers by increasing duty on imported steel; this will make imported steel expensive and will become in-competitive in domestic markets.

– Tata Power Company rose 4.17% after the company announced that the company is setting up a defence production facility at Vemagal in Karnataka today, 8 September 2015. Over the next one year, Tata Power will make an investment of Rs 450 crore in this unit.

– However, the long term economic view is still weak as Chinese export data falls by 6.1% for the month of August. Japanese economy contracted by 1.2 percent in the quarter ended on June. The decline in Japanese economy is less than the real estimates. US Federal Reserve will have its policy meeting (FOMC Meeting) on September 16 and 17, 2015.
