weekly share market news and updates

Our Analysis

Indian share market got a heroic start this week, the rollback of the FPIs surcharges was the sole reason for the euphoria among the domestic investor. However, The delight was short-lived as the data showcasing the continues selling off of the FIIs, dented the sentiment of the market participants. The major reason for the continuity in FPIs selling was global trade discrepancies, the risk of recession and the fall in bond yields, which are having a ripple effect on the market. The consensus estimates a drop in domestic Q1FY20 GDP growth to 5.7 percent and weakening rupee impacted investors optimism on earnings outlook.

However, the government's continuous interventions and efforts towards new reforms to bring back the foreign investment can be witnessed through some of the recent announcements. A package to distress auto sector, new measures to simplify GST, exemption of startups from 'angel tax', a and upfront infusion of Rs 70,000 crore to public sector banks are some of them.

The Two positive news (RBI's surplus transfer and FPI surcharge withdrawal) may have changed the market sentiment for the short run but not the ground reality. The present slowdown in the Indian economy is cyclical as well as structural too. Although the Government's action is said to be well-timed, advancing ahead of the festive season, the slowdown wont wane off in a rush. Currently, We can witness a time correction with Nifty trading in a broader range, 10,830 is the immediate support, while in Upside closing above 11,140 can bring a strong bullish trend.
