D-Street week ahead: Macro data, global cues, FII flows likely to impact market
Domestic macroeconomic data, global cues and the last leg of corporate earnings will be in focus on Dalal Street this week. Institutional fund flows and updates on the coronavirus pandemic also be on investors' radar.
Last week, Indian equity benchmarks dropped 0.8 percent dragged by broad-based selling except metal stocks. Investors cheered a dovish RBI but fears of more aggressive rate hikes by the Fed amid decades-high inflation sent jitters across global markets that found their way to Dalal Street.

The week ahead
Ajit Mishra, VP Research at Religare Broking feels the prevailing tussle between the bulls and the bears in the market will end soon.
"The market has been consolidating for the last four months and still not offering any cue over the next directional move. Global cues in the form of inflation concerns and Russia-Ukraine tensions are currently weighing on the sentiment. However, favourable domestic factors like a pro-growth Budget and a dovish RBI have been capping the damage so far," he said.
Technical outlook
The 50-scrip index is contained in a range of 17,050-17,800, having failed to sustain above its 20-day moving average, according to Yesha Shah, Head of Equity Research, Samco Securities. "A decisive break from this range is likely to set the next course of action. Most global indices are exhibiting a bearish undertone," she said.
The market is largely expected to remain volatile and rangebound. Investors should sit tight on to their quality investments and avoid aggressive bets until a clear direction is established, said Shah, who suggests traders to maintain a neutral outlook and create longs only on dips or around immediate support levels.
Religare Broking's Mishra expects levels of 16,800-17,000 to remain a critical support zone for the Nifty, and resistance around 17,650-17,800.
Here are the key factors and events that are likely to influence Dalal Street in the week starting February 14:
Data on wholesale inflation and consumer inflation in the country are due on Monday.
Monthly data on the automobile sector by industyr body SIAM is also due on the same day.
