Market participants will begin the trading week by reacting to Reliance, ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and Infosys earnings.
The rupee —  which dropped below the 80 level against the US dollar for the first time last week — will continue to be on investors' radar.

The road ahead
"A decisive break above 16,800 would keep the momentum going and help the index test the 17,400 mark. In case of any consolidation, levels of 16,250-16,500 would act as support. The banking index has also reached a trendline hurdle around 36,900, a move above which could further propel the momentum," said Ajit Mishra, VP-Research at Religare Broking.
"Although all sectors are contributing to the move, preference should be given to top performers like auto, FMCG, banking and financial spaces," he said.
Here are the key factors and events that are likely to influence Dalal Street in the week beginning July 25:
