Be Cautiously Optimistic, As Election Results To Create Next Wave

Share Market Weekly

Our Analysis

This week was one of the most thrilling weeks for the Indian share market. During the whole week, bulls & bears tussled to win each day with heavy volume. The US-China trade war escalations, key earnings release, and other global and domestic economic developments stormed D-street with skyrocketing volatility.

Pharma space was the most cautious one this week. Among the sector, sun pharma which dropped by 20 percent in a day was the biggest casualty of the week. The pharma sector of the Indian markets has paid the price for the price-fixing lawsuit against Teva Pharmaceuticals and 19 other Indian drug makers. The news led the crackdown in the pharma space. However, on a broader level, the expiry day cherished Nifty led a bounce above the 11,100 - 11,050 level.

Recently, US hiked tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese import against which Chinese officials are planning to impose retaliatory tariffs against the US. Moreover, the domestic announcement of IIP, CPI, WPI & Skymet monsoon report worsened the situation for investors. According to data, the distinct slowdown in the domestic manufacturing growth in the year 2018-19 can be seen as it fell to its 3-year low. Furthermore, retail inflation is also expected to heat up ahead as it inched up to 2.9 percent. The delayed monsoon with lower than normal rainfall was also predicted by Skymet report which will further fuel the flame for the agricultural sector and its output. The noises around the election results will definitely add to this and would aid volatility in the market.

Going ahead, In the upcoming week, no major announcements are lined up. However, the market participant will take clues from the last phase of the Lok Sabha election on May 19 and the results which are expected to arrive on 23rd May. Recent strong close (above 11250 levels) suggests the upside, however, the election results are the point of doldrums for bulls and bears. The volatility is the only constant for the investors in the upcoming week. The election results would remain the key to unlock future market trends.
