Markets continued to remain volatile and weak amidst uncertainty around several factors that are already known to all with Nifty 50 trading below it’s 200 DMA for the entire week. The weakness may continue if the tension around Russia – Ukraine issue does not ease. Smallcaps having closed flat, showed relative strength compared to other indices. In the sectors, Banking took a beating this week with PVT BANK , NIFTY BANK , PSU BANK falling by (-5.51%) , (-5.55%) & (-3.2%) respectively. Top performing sectors of the current FY like METALS (+7%) , ENERGY (+3.8) , IT (+2.1%) showed very encouraging signs of strength this week and brought much needed cheer to the markets.
