"Global cues indicated that this week would be sluggish and choppy, as the world market movements showed small corrections with the opening all over the globe. The European Central Bank will meet on Thursday for the first time in 2021, as it tries to manage the impact of rising COVID-19 cases and a resurge in lockdowns across the continent, while taking into account preliminary PMI data from Europe. The continent has taken a hit in January as the spread of Covid-19 has trumped the vaccine rollout. The impact of this can be seen on the markets all over the world.

Analysts see up to 27% upside in HDFC Bank after Q3 earnings beat

12:45 PM

Union Budget and the end of financial year are genuine headwinds for the market. In 2019 and 2020, the fortnight prior to Budget announcements saw selling in Sensex, shaving off 2.7% and 5.7%, respectively. So, historically, we do have instances of selling, which calls for caution in the next two weeks... There are two counter arguments here. Traders fearing a major collapse in the run-up to US elections as well as year-end ended up terribly wrong, despite coming off a similar hot streak. Also, DIIs have been persistent sellers since June, barring September, which suggests that should there be correction, it is fair to expect the trend to reverse, ensuring that the cuts don’t turn deep.
