Among private sector banks, (up 0.24%), (up 0.64%), (up 0.55%), and (up 0.18%) gained. (down 0.05%) and (down 0.24%) declined.

The Bankex had underperformed the market over the past one month till 13 October 2016, falling 4.65% compared with 2.51% fall in the Sensex. The index had, however, outperformed the market in past one quarter, gaining 1.4% as against Sensex's 0.62% drop.

The latest data showed that based on consumer price index (CPI) dipped to 13-months low of 4.31% in September 2016 lower than 5.05% in August 2016. The corresponding provisional rate for rural area was 4.96% and urban area 3.64% in September 2016 as against 5.87% and 4.22% in August 2016. The core CPI moved up to 4.77% in September 2016 from 4.59% in August 2016. The cumulative CPI rose to 5.4% in April-September 2016 compared with 4.51% in April-September 2015. The data was announced after market hours yesterday, 13 October 2016.

In its last policy meeting on 4 October 2016, the Reserve (RBI) had cut repo rate by 25 basis points. The next meeting of the newly formed Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) is scheduled on 6 & 7 December 2016 and its resolution will be announced on 7 December 2016. The fall in CPI gives RBI much needed elbow room to cut rates to spur growth.
