Investors to focus on inflation data

New Delhi, Nov 12: Reflecting the mixed global sentiments on account of a more than expected fall in Chinese exports, highlighting a continued slowdown in global trade, the Indian market is mired to a range bound trend, says Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

The Nifty index was not able to breach above the key level of 19,500. Though cues from the Fed Chair’s speech have reduced the likelihood of a rate hike in the near term, leading to an ease in US treasury yields and calming the market, he said.

However, headline inflation remains above the US central bank’s target. FIIs selling has moderated but inflows continue to be muted on concerns of an elevated interest rate and a global slowdown, he said.

Mid and small-caps are back in favour after the recent fall, led by retail activities and good corporate results.
Week ahead, focus will be on inflation data US and India, India’s October inflation is expected to ease to 4.8 from 5 per cent, while US inflation is expected to remain steady.
