“We expect some negative start to the market on Monday and after that, we expect some consolidation amid weak global cues,” says Yash Gupta- Equity Research Analyst, Angel One.
In an interview with ETMarkets, Gupta said: “Monday again we will see some pressure on the indices as the US inflation figures announced on Friday were above market expectation and the US market reacted negatively,” Edited excerpts:
Market remained volatile in the week gone by where the bears had an upper hand. What led to the price action?
We continue to see volatility in the market on the back of global as well as domestic developments. In India, RBI has taken a rate hike of 50 bps despite last month’s 40 bps in an off-the-scheduled meeting.
Inflation remains a concern for the US as well as India. The RBI has already increased the expected inflation for FY 2023 to 6.7% and that 6.7% is on the assumption of crude oil prices being at $105, but currently it is trading at $122.
Along with all these issues, FII selling continues which has kept the market under pressure. Domestic institutional investors (DIIs) have come to the rescue but are not able to combat the FII selling pressure.
Both Sensex and Nifty50 breached crucial support levels in the week gone by. How are indices likely to trade in the coming week?
Monday again we will see some pressure on the indices as the US inflation figures announced on Friday were above the market expectation and the US market reacted negatively.
