Weekly Wrap Up

This week, the market volatility kept us on the edge of our seats as we witnessed a 3-day consecutive sharp decline in the Nifty 50.

  • Out of the 4 trading days this week, 3 of them were notably dominated by the bears. However, today's remarkable market rebound was encouraging, as it rebounded from the critical levels highlighted in yesterday's report.
  • The prevailing negative sentiments in the markets can be attributed to various factors, including the Israel-Hamas conflict, the increasing US treasury yields, rising US dollar rates, and significant FII selling.
  • During times of uncertainty like these, many investors tend to seek safe-haven assets, leading to increased interest in commodities like Gold and Silver, while equities experience a downturn.
