03:15pm Symphony Q1 earnings
Air coolers maker Symphony surpassed street expectations on every parameter with the first quarter (July-September) standalone net profit rising 51 percent to Rs 21.6 crore on the back of strong growth in revenue and operational income. Profit in the year-ago period was Rs 14.3 crore.

 02:58pm Brent Crude check

 Brent crude fell to just above USD 88 a barrel in a well-supplied market as expectations faded that OPEC could cut output in an effort to shore up prices. 

The global oil benchmark has declined more than 20 percent from the 2014 high in June as supplies rose and demand slowed in the United States, Europe and China. 

Investors expecting a production cut from OPEC to support prices were disappointed as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait played down the possibility of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries reducing output. 

OPEC, which produces about 40 percent of the world's crude oil, is due to meet in late November to discuss output targets, reports Reuters. More information please visit this site
