Indian Stock Market Weekly Review – A Week Gone By
Future Outlook –
After correcting 10% from its all-time highs (NIFTY 11172 on 29th Jan 2018) and low of 9952on 23th Mar 2018, the Nifty bounced back handsomely from those levels and finally managed to close above its 200 DEMA.
RBI’s Monetary Policy outlook for the lower inflation trajectory going forward (though it keeps rates unchanged in its meeting ended on 5th April 2018) has helped the indices posted a biggest one-day gain in last 2 years and it is likely to keep momentum for the time being. But the big trigger that the market is waiting for is the Q4 numbers which will start coming from the 2nd week of April.
Looking at the current scenario it is likely that consolidation to continue at least for a couple of weeks while on the lower side it can find support around 10125, as far as Nifty is concern.
