Nifty for the week remained under pressure but broader market remained strong with Midcap 100 index posting gains of almost 2% on back of retail buying. The FIIs were sellers in cash and derivative segment which put pressure on large cap stocks while USDINR was putting a tough fight around resistance area of 74.86. With Nifty stuck in the trading range of 15,620-15,900, we can expect massive leg of unwinding whenever Nifty closes below 15,620. Today, we can see a positive opening for the markets as the SGX Nifty is trading up by 66 points.
On the global front, U.S indices rallied to record closing highs on Friday as financials and other economically focused sectors rebounded after a selloff sparked by growth worries earlier in the week. The Dow Jones rose 446.29 points, or 1.3%, to 34,868.22, the S&P 500 gained 48.44 points, or 1.12%, to 4,369.26 and the Nasdaq Composite added 139.83 points, or 0.96%, to 14,699.61. Asian markets were bounced on Monday as record highs on Wall Street and policy easing in China helped calm some of the recent jitters on global growth, though some of the risks still lay ahead this week.
