The market next week is expected to be jam-packed with activities, to begin with, India’s GDP growth rate and Global Manufacturing PMI will become key indicators to assess the state of the domestic economy, Apurva Sheth, Head of Market Perspectives, Samco Securities said.
From a global standpoint, markets can experience whipsaw movements as investors will be closely watching the US initial jobless claims and unemployment rate, Sheth further added.
Sheth believes that the levels around 17400 on the Nifty are likely to serve as make or break levels. A break below this level may result in a retest of the 17100 level. Until then, traders should have a mildly bullish outlook, analyst advised.
The uptrend will be continued as the return of FIIs amid the festive season comes in and the demand is expected to remain elevated, which could work in favour of the Indian markets, Sunil Damania, Chief Investment Officer, MarketsMojo said in his next week expectations.
PSE stocks have been amongst the top picks in the last week, while sentiments towards the IT sector remain feeble. Investors moved away from IT stocks as major players delayed/trimmed the variable pay component, hinting toward pressure margins that clouded the sector’s outlook, analyst said.
