Normally, after huge gap downs openings, an up move is seen in the market. But there is negativity in the global markets.
Last week also the global markets were weak. We moved up because of local cues like telecom sector update, bad bank etc. This week we don’t have any major local data/news coming out and the global markets continue to be bearish. Let’s see how it goes.
A small correction is expected by many after the stellar rally in the market.
US Fed Monetary Policy is one global data that is important this week. It will be out on Wednesday. If Fed takes some positive decision, that might be the trigger for the US markets to either get out of the recent sluggishness or move up strongly.
