Deepak Jasani, head of retail research, HDFC Securities, said: “European stock markets traded sharply lower Monday, weighed by renewed regional energy concerns, political turmoil in the UK, and worries about the health of Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse. UK’s Finance Minister Kwasi Kwarteng announced Monday that he has abandoned plans to cut the top rate of income tax, a move that had contributed towards sharp falls in the pound and UK bonds.”

The S&P Global India Manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI) edged down to 55.1 from 56.2 in August,” and added that in September, purchasing costs rose at the slowest pace in just under two years, while output charge inflation receded to a seven-month low.
