Indian Market Outlook:

The stock market witnessed good gains in week ended 22 December 2017, on the back of the BJP win in the recently concluded assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. BSE Sensex and the Nifty index closed at record highs.

The Sensex surged 477.33 points, or 1.42%, to settle at 33,940.30 while Nifty advanced 159.75 points, or 1.54%, to settle at 10,493. Mid and Small cap indices outperformed the key indices.

Going forward we expects market to remain volatile due to various events along with F&O segment expiry next week. Apart from this Macroeconomic data, trend in global markets, investment by FPIs and DIIs, the movement of rupee against the dollar and crude oil price movement will dictate near term trend on the bourses in the truncated week ahead.
