    China’s Evergrande crisis: Could it spill over to India? Fear of contagion across financial markets jumps

    China’s Evergrande Group’s likely default on liabilities including interest payments and debt obligations has fuelled fear of a contagion spreading across global financial markets. The second-largest real estate developer in China, Evergrande is a Fortune 500 company with over $300 billion in liabilities due for payment starting this week. Failure to pay the said liabilities could spark a series of events that may result in either the Chinese government bailing Evergrande out or a liquidation of the company’s assets that is likely to create spillover in various financial assets or have a domino effect on banks and non-banks with exposure to Evergrande, various market watchers have noted.

    In no hurry to buy the dip

    "We would certainly not be in a hurry to buy these dips; because this may not be the similar corrective move that we have been witnessing of late. As far as levels are concerned, 17550 – 17630 are to be treated as stiff hurdles; whereas on the flipside, we have entered a key support zone of 17450 – 17250. A violation of the lower range would lead to extended correction in the market which in our sense is likely in coming days. Still all eyes would be on the banking as well as midcap space, because they are the ones who are likely to set the tone for the remainder of participants," said Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking.

    Global markets: Asia markets, yuan fight to stabilise as Evergrande looms large

    Global stock markets grappled with contagion fears on Tuesday, sparked by troubles at China Evergrande as growing risks the property giant could default on its massive debt pile prompted investors to flee riskier assets. Asian markets were jittery in volumes thinned by public holidays in China, Taiwan and South Korea. The Hang Seng recovered from an early drop to trade near flat as financials and property firms bounced, while Japan’s Nikkei returned from a market holiday with a drop of almost 2%.

    Evergrande crisis to impact India?

    "The Evergrande crisis has caused a minor sell-off in markets with the Dow and S&P falling by around 1.7 percent each and Nasdaq and Russel 2000 correcting by above 2 percent each. Concerns are being expressed whether this might turn out to be China's Lehman moment. This appears far-fetched now since Evergrande's debt is not widely held and, therefore, is unlikely to lead to contagion with systemic risks. The recovery in Dow which was down 972 points at the lows to close with a loss of 614 points is an indication of the market's confidence that contagion is unlikely. However, investors have to be cautious since markets are richly valued and, therefore, vulnerable to corrections. There is another view that the Chinese crisis- the regulatory crackdown earlier and the Evergrande crisis now- bode well for India, facilitating increasing capital flows to India. This may play out in the medium to long-term. The FOMC meet starting today may give a timeline on tapering. This will be watched closely by markets, globally. This is likely to be a 'taper without tantrum'," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
