Data released during the week showed the economy grew at 7.9 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2015-16 taking the overall GDP growth to a five-year high of 7.6 per cent in the fiscal, mainly on account of good performance of manufacturing and farm sectors. The manufacturing sector during the fourth quarter recorded a growth rate of 9.3 per cent while farm sector grew at 2.3 per cent.
Going ahead, “Markets will wait for important events like the RBI policy meeting, Fed meeting in June and the referendum in Britain on whether to stay in EU or not. Timely onset of the monsoons will be a positive for the markets,” said Shah.
