BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 snapped a four-day gaining streak last week, ending up to a per cent lower. SGX Nifty tanked 191.50 points or 1.22 per cent to 15,558 on Singaporean Exchange. Investor sentiment was hit after the US Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting hinted at interest rate hikes by 2023. With no major event, global cues are likely to continue to dictate the market trend. On the domestic front, the progress of the monsoon and updates on the vaccination drive will be closely watched. “Indications are in the favor of further consolidation in the index but the bias would remain on the positive side till Nifty holds above 15,400. Meanwhile, participants should maintain their focus on the selection of stocks and use dips to gradually accumulate the fundamentally sound counters,” Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd, said.
