“After a week-long consolidation, the Indian market is back in action despite unfavourable global sentiments. The momentum is driven by the expectation of better Q2 earnings backed by recovery in economic activity, second wave fallout not being severe and in anticipation of a better outlook from festival demand,” Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services, said.
“The IT sector was under consolidation before the start of quarterly results, and RBI Monetary Policy Meeting is another key event that is being keenly watched by the market which is expecting no change instance,” he said.

India VIX fell by 2.76 per cent from 17.21 to 16.73 levels. Overall spurt in the India VIX is giving a volatile swing but decline in volatility in the last few sessions may give some consolidation and support.

Sentiments got some support with Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy’s (CMIE) report that employment increased by 8.5 million in September, led by the salaried jobs category, as the unemployment rate declined to 6.9% during the month.
In another positive development, foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) were stood as net buyers for the second month in a row in the Indian market with an investment of Rs 26,517 crore in September.
However, markets trimmed some of their gains as traders were worried as trade deficit spiked to almost $23 billion in September from $13.8 billion in the previous month, as imports surged at a much faster pace than exports, driven by elevated global crude oil prices and purchases of gold in the build-up to the festival season.
