weekly share market news and updates

Our Analysis

Across the globe, quarter earnings are expected to have a big hit on the economies. The number of COVID-19 cases are increasing but India is showing a strong recovery rate. Indian markets are too volatile for long term investors. Intraday investors are charging the market these days. India is lacking domestic investments and most predominantly positive triggers. India China border tensions are already adding troubles.

The global stocks rally was back on track, with more support from the Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan helping end a bumpy few days for financial markets. But asian shares and US stock futures teetered in choppy trade as lingering concerns about a fresh spike in coronavirus cases offset growing hopes for a quick economic recovery.
