Fear concerns on global economic growth after the IMF growth forecast to 3.3% for 2019 have also given the worries to investors. Which got reflected in the volatility index India VIX. This week VIX witnessed a sharp jump of over 15 percent to trade above the 21 marks which is the highest level of the calendar year 2019. However, looking at FII & PRO positions, we expect range-bound markets ahead (11550-11750).
Going ahead, a host of events are lined up which will keep the market participant at the edge of their seats. General elections to continue to remain in focus and will keep markets volatile in the near term. The result of IT majors Infosys and TCS is going to kick start the earnings sessions. Besides, important macroeconomic data IIP and CPI inflation are also scheduled. At the same time, We are also at the highest PE level historically. Globally, progress on US-Europe trade talk, the behavior of crude oil prices and fluctuation in currency, would further induce volatility in the markets.
