    Markets traded volatile and ended marginally in the green amid mixed global cues. In the first half, the benchmark hovered in a range however healthy buying in banking, FMCG and realty aided markets to inch gradually higher as the session progressed. Eventually, the Nifty closed with gains of 0.2% at 15,856 levels. All the sectoral indices ended in positive, except for auto, energy and media. The broader markets traded mixed wherein midcap ended in-line with benchmark while smallcap ended lower by 0.5%. 
     
    Markets will first react to results of two index majors viz. Reliance Industries and ICICI Bank on Monday i.e. 26th July. Besides, participants will be closely eyeing the global markets for cues. As we’re again trading closer to the upper band of the prevailing consolidation range i.e. 15,900 zone, we reiterate our view to limit naked leveraged positions and wait for a decisive signal from the index.

    Rahul Gupta, Head Of Research- Currency, Emkay Global Financial Services:

    The event risk to fx market is next week’s FOMC policy. So the USDINR spot will remain a little directionless until then as with the rising covid cases in the US, the Fed may communicate a dovish stance. However, any hawkish commentary or hints at tapering the asset purchase program will surge the USDINR spot above 75 zone. Thus, for next week, we expect the trend to be sideways in between 74-75.25.
