NEW DELHI: The domestic stock market rose significantly over the past week, driven by purchases of technology, paper and some cement stocks. Bank shares were also bought, but energy counters were under selling pressure.

With no major domestic event planned, the Indian market will be led by global counterparts this week. The situation in Russia-Ukraine will be closely monitored. Because crude oil plays such a critical role in determining the fate of Indian macros, crude oil price movements will also be closely monitored.

“With increased allocations to ELSS funds as the end of the fiscal year approaches, DII’s buying momentum is likely to continue. In the absence of a positive trigger, market movements are expected to remain within range and investors should continue to invest in selective, fundamentally resilient stocks,” said Yesha Shah, Head of Equity Research, Samco Securities.
