Analysts say that US Fed and ECB’s decision with regards to stimulus tapering plans are the most awaited decisions and would keep the markets oscillating. “The overall sentiment in the domestic market remains positive, as controlled Covid cases domestically and strong pick up in vaccination drive, has led to healthy pick-up in economic activities, thus reflecting in continuous improvement of macro data points and positive earnings expectation,” Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services, said.
