Last week, Foreign Institutional Investors net-sold shares worth Rs 2,009 crores. Domestic Institutional Investors net-bought shares worth Rs 10,107 crores.
INDIA VIX increased to 14.69.
The Dow Jones index in the U.S. market hit yet another all-time high on Friday. Even though there is not much momentum, their market is slowly moving up each week.
This might also be the reason why Foreign Institutional Investors are trying to pull money from emerging markets. When the U.S. markets are performing well, this does tend to happen.
Many global markets including China, Hong Kong and Kospi are trading very much down from their all-time high levels. However, in India, Domestic investors have been buying up opportunities, and keeping the market up over the last many months.
Our Domestic investors have been buying up opportunities, and keeping the market up over the last many months. This will continue to happen. Watch for the Mutual Fund inflow report from January towards the end of this week.
When institutional and speculative traders' activity increases together, we see days like last Friday, with sudden up-moves followed by big crashes.
Today, you must watch out for how the market reacts to SBI and Tata Motors' results. SBI's net profit fell 35% due to provisioning for pensions and wage hikes, while Tata Motors net profit shot up 137%. Both could have larger impacts on other stocks in their sectors.
Otherwise, technical levels are what you can continue to watch for the beginning of the week.
Repeating this from the last day - “There is even a world where, if 22,000 is broken with strength, we could see a NIFTY rally to 22,120[all-time high]. 21,480 would again act as a strong support from here.” This happened once and can happen again.
