Indian Market Outlook:
The Key benchmark indices fell over 2 percent during the week led by escalation of Russia and Ukraine War, continuous FII Selling and rising crude Oil prices. Nifty ended the week with 2.48 percent lower at 16245.35 points while the Sensex ended with 2.73 percent lower at 54,333.81 points. Maruti Suzuki, Asian Paints, Eicher, Hero MotoCorp, M&M were the top Nifty losers. Broader market fell less than the key benchmark indices. BSE Midcap index ended 2.35 percent lower, while the BSE Small cap index fell 0.62 percent. Bank Nifty fell more than 5%, biggest weekly fell in 18 months. Foreign Institutional Investors were the net sellers during the week; sell equities worth Rs. 14932 crores while the DIIs were the net buyers of Rs. 12003 crores. Skyrocketing inflation is what people fear and the best hedge for that is energy and industrial metals which led the rally in metal and energy stocks during the week. India’s GDP grew by a lesser-than-expected 5.4 per cent in the third quarter, while the growth estimate for the year as a whole was revised downward to 8.9 per cent from 9.1 per cent earlier. Going forward, the final phase of voting for Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh is scheduled for March 7 after which the elections for the five poll-bound states will be finally concluded on 10th March, 2022. Rising crude oil prices is expected to push India’s domestic prices of petrol and diesel by Rs 15-22 per litre. OMCs expected to revise the current prices on or after March 7. Besides this, developments in the Russo-Ukrainian war will also be key for the markets. We advise investors to invest in quality stocks with any further dip.

The GNPAs for the NBFCs (non-banking finance companies) are, however, expected to reduce going ahead as the players have bolstered their collection processes and economic activity is also improving, Crisil said in a note.
