“India is on a higher earnings growth trajectory and this is the only major risk which can spoil the sentiments. The current dollar strength also suggests the risk-off sentiments and is leading to FII flows currently.”
“Nifty has a new base at 16,000-16,500 now which may be tested in this weakness. The recent commodity prices correction can lower the raw material cost for certain sectors like Consumer and help them to recover after a period of consolidation.”
