Fund flow, derivatives expiry and global cues are likely to be in focus on Dalal Street this week, after equity benchmarks suffered a weekly loss after two back-to-back weekly gains. Manufacturing and services data from major economies will also be in the spotlight.
Equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty50 tumbled nearly two percent last week amid selling pressure in metal, oil & gas and financial spaces, especially PSU banking names. Broader markets also weakened, further hurting investors' sentiment.
For the four-session trading week on account of a public holiday on Friday, the Nifty50 lost 338 points or 1.9 percent to give up the 17,800 mark, and the Sensex shed 1,050.7 points or 1.7 percent to settle near 59,650.
Dalal Street week ahead
Volatility is likely to remain high this week due to the expiry of November futures & options contracts, said Ajit Mishra, VP Research. Religare Broking. The expiry is due on Thursday, November 25.
"Focus would largely remain on the global markets for cues in absence of any major event on the domestic front," he said.
Headline indices may not be able to sustain higher levels given that the breadth is weak, according to Yesha Shah, Head of Equity Research at Samco Securities.
"The Nifty50 index is now trading around crucial support at 17,700, and the Bank Nifty around support at the rising trend line. We suggest traders to maintain a mildly bearish to neutral outlook to position trades. A break below 17,700 may lead the benchmark to test 17,500 levels," she said.
Here are the key factors and events that are likely to influence Dalal Street in the week starting November 22:
Foreign institutional investors net purchased Indian equities worth Rs 18,745.2 crore ($2.5 billion) during the week. Earlier this month, they had net offloaded equities worth Rs 4,694.1 crore ($629.2 million).
Data on India's foreign exchange reserves in November will be released on Friday.
