The Indian stock market closed the highly volatile week on a negative note ahead of the opening of LIC IPO in the week starting May 2. Benchmarks Nifty 50 and Sensex declined 0.4% and 0.2% respectively for the week ended April 29. The indices ended in the red on three occasions and closed on a positive note in two sessions
On Friday, the headline indices corrected more than half percent weighed down by profit-booking in energy, banking, and media stocks.
Now, what’s next??
In the forthcoming week, volatility is likely to continue as the focus will shift to central bank policy meetings at both the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of England. Apart from this, this slew of economic data releases, monthly auto sales data, and ongoing earnings season will keep investors busy. The mother of all IPO – LIC will also hit Dalal Street on 04th May 2022 which could pull out liquidity from the market and exert some selling pressure. Traders should keep an eye on sectors like hospitality, multiplex, transportation etc. as ease in Covid restrictions in India is a boost for these sectors.
