    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Markets continued their volatile movements and ended the day negative, tracking mixed global cues. Global stocks were mixed following record infections in the US, which led to worries of delayed global economic recovery, while Indian markets worried about record cases of infections and increasing localized lockdowns. However, on a weekly basis, the benchmark indices gained around 1.5%. The weekly gains were mainly driven by liquidity and the hope that the virus would be contained soon and businesses back to normal. 

    However, the outlook for the market is volatile as the earnings announcements have begun after a washout quarter for most industries. This uncertainty combined with profit booking happening after the recent rally, means that the volatility is expected to continue in the markets and investors would do well to be cautious and stock specific in this market.

    Sanjeev Zarbade, VP PCG Research, Kotak Securities:

    The BSE-30 Index gained 1.4% in the current week. Market mood remained buoyant, despite continuous increase in Covid-19 cases and high frequency indicators signaling mixed signs of recovery. IndusInd Bank, Bajaj Finance and SBI were among the top gainers while ITC, NTPC and Power Grid were among the major losers in the BSE-30 Index. 

    FPIs sold equities worth USD 261 million over the past five trading sessions while DIIs sold USD 106 million worth of equities in the same period. 

    We are now beginning to see some fatigue coming into the market as reflected by the selling by FPIs and DIIs. Also, the ongoing earnings season will be one of the most weak ones in many years. In view of this, for short term investors, it makes sense to remain cautious.
