Key Market Drivers

The White House indicated in an elaborate press briefing this week that the H-1B visa lottery system is likely to end this year and a new program with an emphasis on master’s degrees and high skills is likely to be enforced.

Skymet, a private monsoon forecasting agency has predicted monsoon’s arrival in Kerala between May 28 and May 30, and also predicted the monsoon is likely to be 96 percent of the long-period average. Poor rains can shrink the rural economy, cut food output and stoke prices. When rains are in the adequate quantity, they usually raise farm income and rural demand for consumer goods, which gives a big boost to the economy.
