India Bullish on Positive Earnings

weekly share market news and updates

Our Analysis

Indian market has shown optimism during this week as the bulls are pushing markets on higher side every day. In India, a number of recovered cases have started beating the number of fresh positive cases on a daily basis. Along with that the economy is almost operational now. Most of the manufacturing and production units have started their operations closed to full capacity. Companies have started taking all necessary precautions in order to get operational in this new normal.

On the global front, markets have started showing better recovery than June quarter. The US has shown significant stability whereas few parameters are still lagging but any stability is getting considered as recovery. Meanwhile the US President recovered too fast after being tested positive for COVID-19. The global economy has stabilised because of extraordinary policy measures that established a floor, with governments providing around $12 trillion in support of households.

In commodities, oil prices extended their decline after US President Donald Trump dashed hopes for a fourth stimulus package to boost the coronavirus-hit economy and on a larger-than-expected increase in US crude inventories.
