Key developments that will drive the markets this week

24 Apr 2022 , 01:49 PM

Domestic markets in the last week traded volatile and fell nearly one and a half per cent amid mixed cues and also weak earnings from Infosys and HDFC Bank dragged the indices lower. However, the benchmark tried to recoup losses in the middle, hawkish statements from US Fed again turned the table in the favour of bears. Finally, both Nifty and Sensex ended lower by 1.3% and 1.7% to close at 17,171.9 and 57,197 levels, respectively.

In the coming week as well due to the scheduled expiry of April month derivatives contracts. Besides, global cues like the Russia-Ukraine crisis, China’s COVID situation, and the performance of the global indices will continue to weigh on the sentiment.
