EDITORIAL MESSAGE anmi

Reforms To Growth

A

s we close yet

a n o t h e r

calendar year

our hopes and aspiration for a better tomorrow begins to be the prime subject of discussion. We all hope and wish to a smooth sail in fair winds always. But life is all in bumps and humps – discomforts and satisfaction of having passed a stretch of difcult days. The pandemic has been a great teacher, a hard master with a whip in hand. Apart for the global sorrows, it has taught us the basic rule to live without gigantic expectations of living without pain. Thus the past two years has been a period of restrain that has taught us to rethink the way we live and make the best during difcult times. It is for sure now and well entrenched in all our minds that natural calamities will be huge and humungous in size and we will grapple to nd a way out. It is only then we will learn to live out of them and sow seeds to a future. The capital market in India is large and vibrant and it is one of the main pillars on which the economy is held. One of the key takeaways during the difcult times in the recent past is that this huge market needs to be governed and conform to a transparent platform with rules and regulations well set in place. The return of condence in Indian economy has fuelled the fact that we will cross the US $ 100 trillion mark in terms of GDP and may cross France to be the 6th largest economy of the world in 2022. The recent report from

Centre for Economic and Business Research states that the centre of economic gravity will be shifting to Asia with China, Japan, India and Korea adding up to over $26 trillion in 2021. Thus it is expected that in the near future China's economy will overtake that of the US to be the top in 2030 while India with a GDP of over $6.8 trillion, will overtake Germany by 2031 to be the third largest economy of the world. So our economy will be bigger that what we are now and this throws up more oppor tunities than being a disadvantage. If this is achieved we will need to adhere to more rules and regulation in business to ensure easy of work. This will be the way of life in the immediate future. To propel this growth trajectory the support of the capital market is of paramount importance and very much the need of the hour. Reforms will be the driving path. Keeping this in mind ANMI has designed the 12th International Convention in February where nance experts will throw up the future way to follow. Details of the convention will be shared with all at the earliest. The journal this month carries details of the activity of ANMI in the past month. It also highlights the achievements in the recent times as fallout of a well concerted effort taken by all to reach out to the exchange heads and policy makers. We have included in this journal a pictorial summery of the Stock Tech event – an annual feature that showcases technologies in place and those to come in the near future. Wish you all a very happy new year ahead. Be safe and be secure. Basav Bhattacharya Consulting Editor

Trade Talk: The future of algo trading

S

EBI recently proposed a framework for algorithmic (algo) trading by retail investors, seeking to address the rise in the use of Application Programming Interface (API) access allowing automation of trades. Algo trading refers to orders generated using automated execution logic. Simply put, algo trading systems monitor stock prices in real time and upon the occurrence of predened criteria, initiate an order without any manual intervention. API access, or tech jargon for a pipe which connects one system to another, is used to establish a connection between the trader and the broker in order to obtain real-time quotes and pricing data; it also enables traders to use a thirdparty application to place orders in the market which may or may not be based on an algorithm. Currently, algos submitted by brokers have to be approved by the stock exchange, but those which come via the API don't go through scrutiny, mainly because what comes through is only the order and not the algo itself. A simple example of an algo trade would be a formula entered that on Sensex falling by 2%, a buy-order be placed of one unit of each of the top 500 companies automatically. This can be done via simple programming on an excel sheet and automated to get executed through the API pipe to the broker, almost with no human intervention. Thus the 2% trigger would travel in one direction and the 500 orders in the other, in the API pipe. While orders emanating from an API can be identied as such, it is not possible for brokers to differentiate between algo and non-algo orders. Due to the inability to identify algo trading by retail

investors through API access, the requirement of approval of algos by stock exchanges prior to their deployment is sidestepped, resulting in the rise of 'unregulated and unapproved' algos, which may be used to lure retail investors by unregistered and unregulated entities by falsely guaranteeing higher returns. What happens at the backend of such trades is not known to the broker or the exchange. Further, no grievance redressal mechanisms exist in relation to unregistered and unapproved algos, which may also be used to orchestrate systematic market manipulations. The proposed frameworkSEBI has proposed that all orders emanating from API access provided by brokers to retail investors should be treated as algo orders, which have to be tagged with a unique ID and certied by the prescribed authorities. Further, all such algos, and modications thereto, must be approved by the stock exchange prior to their deployment or modication. Additionally, all algos, irrespective of the developer, would be required to run on the brokers' servers so that the control of client orders, order conrmations, and other related information lies with the broker, who will need to deploy adequate checks to ensure that the algo performs in a controlled manner. Brokers may provide in-house algo strategies or outsource the services of third par ty algo providers/vendors through a formal agreement. Further, the responsibility for all algo trades emanating from an API would fall on the concerned broker, who would also be responsible for grievance redressal in relation to the concerned algo trades. With these liabilities, there is little doubt that a broker would not be comfortable leaving pipes open which allow trades, which cannot practically be supervised or controlled. Further, SEBI is presently unsure of the nature of services offered by an algo developer as they may create and provide an algo strategy on the basis of 20

research and analysis done by them. Data obtained in this regard over time would assist SEBI formulate an appropriate framework. The proposed framework has been oated with a view to safeguard investors. SEBI is also mandated to protect the integrity of the securities market as unregulated algo trading can be used as a modus operandi to systematically manipulate the stock market and also lead to ash crashes, etc. These kinds of events have the immediate effect of erosion of investor condence and cause nearirreparable harm to the securities market. There could also be rogue or badly designed algos, or even properly designed algos which have many investors, thus creating a spike in prices. Concerns with the proposals although the proposed framework is well-intended, there are some concerns with SEBI's approach. First, classifying all API-based trades as algo trades is unfair. The API ecosystem is a whole market in itself and SEBI's move will retard connectivity between brokers and other sophisticated players connecting to them for non-algo purposes. Much of ntech today is connected to nancial players in a multiplicity of ways through API pipes. It will also be a departure from SEBI's mission to encourage innovative and digital solutions in securities market, as per their recently published investor charter and regulatory sandbox. With more and more people gaining prociency in computer programming and the boom of ntech in India as well as around the world, a revisit of the proposed framework by the regulator is warranted. Secondly, the proposed framework imposes a heavy onus on the brokers. For instance, brokers will have to ensure that persons using third party vendor developed algos or indigenously developed algos are pre-approved by the stock exchange. In addition to the costs, the cumbersome approval process will have to be followed each time the algo strategy is changed on the basis of changing investment strategies, which is onerous on the trader, developer, broker and the stock exchange.

However, it may be noted that in the US as well as the UK, the onus to keep a check on algo trading lies with the broker. Concerns regarding condentiality of algo strategies, which are akin to trade secrets, in view of the disclosure and approval norms in relation to algo strategies, are also not unfounded.

Although the regulatory framework proposed by SEBI is well-intended, there are some concerns with the approach The way forward Instead of potentially hampering growth in the API ecosystem and putting an undue onus on the brokers, SEBI must, in consultation with the relevant market participants, devise a mechanism which does not hamper technological advances and at the same time, does not compromise investor protection and integrity of the securities market. Presently, algo strategy developers are not classied as investment advisers under the SEBI (Investment Adviser) Regulations, 2013. The regulator admits that there isn't sufcient clarity as to whether the services provided by third party algo developers fall under the scope of investment advise or not. While regulation and the imposition of additional obligations on various market participants is inevitable, the issues brought to light in view of the proposed framework indicate that there needs to be a more comprehensive review of the applicable laws instead of a stop-gap measure.

A glance at Indian Economy amid Covid-19

A

s p er t h e lat e st estimates, it is expected that Indian GDP is projected to grow 9.4% in scal year (FY) 2021-22 before reverting to 8.1% in FY 2022-23 and 5.5 per cent in FY 2023-24. Since the second wave of Covid-19 in May, the economic activities worldwide is gaining momentum. However, the normalisation momentum came to a halt in April, 2021 when the Delta variant caused a rampant afictions. The whole Intensive care infrastructure was under acute pressure and several measures were taken to conne the widespread. The already started vaccine drive in January, 2021 was not enough to contain the disease casualties as by that time only a minute portion of the population was vaccinated and that also by the rst jab only. Due to this shock the vaccine drive was accelerated covering 30 million healthcare and front-line workers and by end-September, more than half of the eligible population had been given at least one jab and at mid-November, more than one Indian out of four was fully vaccinated. The economic shock has been weaker than during the 2020 wave. Since the summer of 2021, growth has rebounded, pulled by exports, consumer demand and, more importantly, a very strong base effect. Most key high-frequency indicators, including sales of two-wheelers and tractors, are rising gradually and mobility indices sharply improved during the Diwali festive season and remain well-oriented. Consumer price ination stood at 4.5% in October, a signicant decline from the October 2020 reading of 7.6%. The recent moderation can be explained by base effects, an excellent monsoon season, a resumption of agriculture supply chains that lowered food prices (which account for 39% of the CPI basket) and administrative steps (such as lower import duties

on edible oils). Both merchandise exports and imports have expanded forcefully, boosted by oil trade. Easier conditions in capital markets have beneted large corporates and young start-ups, with a record 51 initial public offers (IPOs) on the two main stock exchanges between January and November 2021. Foreign exchange reserves have increased due to strong foreign direct and portfolio investment ows. In 2021, the rupee has experienced a smaller depreciation against the US dollar than most emerging Asian peers. It was the covid pandemic, when most of the citizens were left with no jobs, salary cuts, uncertain economic future, nancial paralysis, business losses due to lockdowns and restrictions, started looking ways to support their nancial needs. This gave a rise to a technology penetration also when a whole new world of online access where adopted by the Indians. This further led to improved awareness towards various investment options and market news. The potential investors of 2 to 3 tier cities who were earlier ignorant about the por tfolio diversication are now empowered with online tools and real time technologies. Despite the economic recovery, GDP is still not reached the pre-crisis levels. Several scal measures taken in response to the pandemic to suppor t the informal workers, migrants and unorganised groups are continued further. The deferred payments of taxes due in 2020 are recovered as the economic activity recovered, the tax revenues have increased. The monetary policy by RBI has been supportive with easing of rates and liquidity boost, although the bank credit growth remain subdued. However, the way ination is increasing due to rising commodity prices and supply disruptions, such as coal and chip shortages, the central bank may be forced to tighten the monetary policy thus raising the borrowing costs and draining the market liquidity. Headline ination is projected to remain below the upper tolerance limit of the exible ination targeting approach, which it exceeded in FY 2021. 22

With policy rates projected to rise in 2022, the exit of non-viable rms and effective non-performing loans (NPLs) resolution should be made easier. All those structural reforms, including labour, insurance and por ts liberalisation, advanced despite the pandemic. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) says in its latest nancial stability report that the economy has gained momentum and remained resilient since the second quarter of the current scal year, but the Omicron variant of coronavirus remains a major challenge along with rising ination pressures. Stronger and sustainable recovery hinges on the revival of private investment and shoring up private consumption, which remains below their prepandemic levels. Activity in India's dominant services sector expanded for fourth consecutive month, while the manufacturing purchasing index climbed to 57.6 -- the best showing since January, according to IHS Market data. Therefore, striking

the critical balance between revival of consumption demand and controlling ination will be important. Simultaneous consumption-led growth alongside increase in productive capacity will be crucial to the achievement of the envisaged economic recovery. Following from the Union Budget 2021, there will also be high expectations from the budget in 2022 in terms of enhancing productive capacity and enabling greater capacity utilisation to set the stage for the pandemic-induced economic recovery processes. Finally, as we end the year 2021 with new fears of the Omicron variant, the year 2022 will be one of the most crucial years for the Indian economy to establish if it has learnt some lessons (in the last two years) in being pandemic-smart with respect to the restrictions, lockdowns, and market uncertainties, or will the situation worsen further as it combat to deal with an impending third spurt.

MCX iCOMDEX Energy Index (ENRGDEX) MCX ENRGDEX rallied by more than 8% during December 2021. MCX Crude Oil prices were sharply higher by around 15% on optimism that the Omicron virus variant may not be as severe as feared, easing concerns over demand outlook. Prices also got support after US commercial crude inventories declined the most in the past 4-months. However, MCX Natural Gas plunged by around 20% on warmer-thanexpected winter forecasts in major US consuming centres. MCX iCOMDEX Bullion Index (BULLDEX) MCX BULLDEX ended higher by 0.6% by end of December. Bullion prices gained on safe-haven buying fuelled by global rise in Omicron Covid-19 variant infections, but most of the gains were offset tracking sharp rally in the Indian Rupee, which hit a one-month high. Border tensions between Russia and Ukraine also supported bullion prices. MCX iCOMDEX Base Metal Index (METLDEX) MCX METLDEX closed higher by 4.30% during December, on easing concerns about the Omicron coronavirus variant, upbeat U.S. economic data and ease in China's monetary policy. Better-than-expected data on China’s November factory activity, growing for the first time in three months, also supported metal prices. Rally in Chinese currency to 3-year highs raised hopes of pick-up in demand from world’s biggest metal consuming country.
