Market Commentary

Date:Feb-23-2017 08:40
The Indian benchmarks are poised to open flat with positive bias on Thursday, tracking muted cues from fellow Asian peers after Wall Street ended mixed in overnight trade. After strong rally in the last few sessions, the market may see some volatility as investors will rollover their position ahead of February F&O expiry due today. Bullish trend in the SGX Nifty Index Futures for February delivery, which were trading at 8,928.50, up by 10.5 points or 0.12 per cent, at 11:04 AM Singapore time, also signaled a flat to positive opening for Sensex. On the economy front, IMF has lowered India GDP growth to 6.6 per cent in FY17, largely due to demonetization, while the agency expects growth to rebound to 7.2 per cent in FY18. With corporate earnings season come to an end, traders will shift focus to the outcome of the state election results for more clarity on the government's capacity to revive stalled reforms, which will set future direction for markets.
