The benchmark indices – BSE indices Sensex and Nifty 50 – fell by up to 4 percent during the week, while indices based on secondary equities, BSE and small equities fell by up to 7 percent during the period.
Ajit Mishra, Director of Research. Religare Broking, said that the tone was negative from the beginning and an unexpected rise in interest rates from RBI pushed the bulls to the back foot
“Attitudes declined further at the last meeting due to growing fears of aggressive US Federal Reserve rate hikes. In the meantime, the mixed earnings announcements failed to provide any comfort,” he added.
All major industry indices turned red, but the consumer price index fell by 9 per cent this week. Markets are expected to remain weak in the near future, experts said.
“Following RBI’s unexpected rise in interest rates, Indian inflation is largely forecast at 7.4-7.5 percent, well above the acceptable level of the central bank,” said Yesha Shah, head of equities research at Samco Securities.
However, higher-than-expected inflation could worsen current sentiment. Investors are therefore advised to keep a long-term horizon and be very specific in their choices, she suggested.
