D-Street Week Ahead: F&O expiry, earnings, FII flows likely to influence market

D-Street Week Ahead: F&O expiry, earnings, FII flows likely to influence market
As the earnings season draws to a close on Dalal Street, analysts say high volatility may persist in the run up to the expiry of monthly derivatives (futures & options) contracts due on Thursday, May 26. Besides, global cues will remain at centre stage after a week that saw wild swings in the market as investors fretted over aggressive hikes in interest rates, worsening inflation and concerns about receding growth.
News updates on the Russia-Ukraine war front and the pandemic situation in China will also be tracked closely.
The week that was
Last week, both Sensex and Nifty50 rose around three percent each — their first weekly gain in more than a month.
Barring IT, all of the sectors strengthened, helping Dalal Street endure wild swings in its global peers as investors fretted over aggressive hikes in pandemic-era interest rates and concerns about receding global growth.
The road ahead
One can expect high choppiness to continue on account of the scheduled monthly F&O expiry, according to Ajit Mishra, VP Research at Religare Broking.
Besides, monsoon-related updates will be in focus, along with the performance of global markets, especially the US, China’s COVID updates and news on the Russia-Ukraine front will remain in the spotlight, he said.
"The Nifty50 is trading closer to the upper band of the 15,700-16,400 range, where it has witnessed wild swings. Participants should wait for a decisive close above 16,400 for a change in bias. In case of a breakout, the 16,650-16,800 zone will act as a hurdle," he said.
