TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
“Markets, globally, have turned weak following the steady decline in the mother market US. The heightened speculative activity in certain segments in US markets have become an area of concern. Back home, in India, the third day of consecutive selling by FIIs have turned the market mood bearish. The budget uncertainty will keep the bulls in restraint,” said VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
