Market This Week

The market this week cut the earlier losses where Sensex gained nearly 300 points while Nifty managed to add 100 points in just last couple of sessions. But FIIs are still out of the party while DIIs are adding every day into the equities. Which to some extent has kept the market afloat.

Movers & Shakers

Key Market Drivers

The states have been demanding a compensation of Rs. 55,000 crore in case of any losses. The centre is pitching for control over services.

Event Watch
