Indian Stock Market Update: If a bounce back in your portfolio has brought you relief, the credit for it largely goes to foreign fund managers: from Mauritius to Luxembourg to the US. The sensex on Friday closed above the 66,000 mark for the first time on the back of steady foreign investor inflows.
Nifty Weekly Technical Forecast: It can be noted that, after a rigorous start, the Nifty (निफ्टी) was more in to ranging forthe balance of the week. This is also quite in line withthe expectations that the market in May would range, albeit at a higher level. So far, that is the case.
If you recall last week I had mentioned, “…. It is therefore obvious that retail money needs to come back big time for the markets to get into a bullish stride once again.” Another redeeming factor has been the slow but steady recovery in the midcap space that was missing for a while. While we need to really see more momentum kicking in to take these indices higher, the trends seen last week has lent some color to the sentiment. Mid-cap index is closer to the breakout zone and should be checked first for some market action.
Sensex / Nifty Future Forecast: India’s stock benchmarks closed little unchanged in a volatile session as gains in capital goods and industrials stocks were offset by losses in energy, oil and gas and metals.
As is rightly said, the stock market of any country is the barometer of its economic growth, the story for India is no different. As we celebrate the 75th year of independence, a look back at Sensex narrates the tale of how India has grown from strength to strength. Started in 1986 on the BSE, Sensex is a free-float index consisting of 30 of the biggest listed companies in India. The BSE Sensex has grown from 100 points to 59,000 today; and while marred by volatility and bears, the index has posted robust growth, a testament to the country’s economic growth and future potential.
Nifty Weekly Technical Forecas: Traders continue getting tossed around by the market. We started weak, rallied up, then gave it all back, only to rally back again by the end of the week. So, the saga of volatility continues. Intra-week trading remained very difficult as gaps and lack of a follow-through kept taking a toll on whatever positions were created. The VIX moved sharply as uncertainty deepened and nervousness increased. Everyone is searching for a bottom that is proving to be elusive so far. The week in pictures was thus.
Nifty Weekly Forecast: When playing the markets, particularly with trading, it would be wise to remember, always, one of the statements made by Elon Musk. ‘Success is one of the possible outcomes’, he said, talking about one of his ventures.
