The Sensex and the Nifty closed marginally lower due to mixed global cues, profit booking and cautious approach to Q1 results. The indices closed at 27,126 and 8,323 respectively with mid-caps and small caps out-performing the large caps reflecting underlying positive momentum.
The 7th pay commission report , good progress of monsoon , renewed buying from FIIs and positive global cues have suddenly changed he mood of the market , at least for the week. During the week ended the Sensex and the Nifty closed at 27,145 and 8,328 points which is 747 and 239 points up respectively. The RBI’s financial stability report has given further boost to the sentiments. The surge may continue this week too, reflecting on the positive cues. Short covering on derivative expiry may also have given further boost to the surge last week.
The verdict that world was looking for was delivered last week – Britain votes in favour of exit from EU. The financial markets worldwide tanked due to the panic it has created. The Indian benchmarks too , closed down at 26,397 for the Sensex and 8,088 for the Nifty. Comparing to other international indices, the Indian markets put up a resilient show as more buying pressure at downsides kept the support strong. Stocks with more UK exposure like Tata motors , Motherson sumi and Cox and Kings plunged more than 8%. More investors have moved funds from equities to safe havens like Gold. The reason why there is so much of panic is because EU is one of the largest trading blocs with China and US having a mjor chunk of it. The exit would bring in a lot of uncertainty and many trade agreements will have to be reworked. Investors also fear that the exit of UK could be the first of many more exits to come.
The Indian indices settled on a flat note last Friday after being volatile throughout the week. Concerns over Monsoon , speculation over Dr. Rajan’s continuity as te RBI governor , decision of US fed on interest rates and fears over the outcome of Britain’s exit were enough reasons for the markets to tread nowhere. The Sensex closed at 26,626 and the nifty closed at 8,170 – almost flat. In fact , buying interest at lower ends kept the markets at these levels without much damage.
