Stock markets can be very volatile this week. Analysts say that the market trend in the week of short trading sessions will be largely determined by the trend of the Covid-19 transition, global indicators, and quarterly results of companies. On Wednesday, there will be a holiday in the market on Ram Navami.
Vinod Nair, head of research, Geojit Financial Services, said, “The market will be very volatile this week due to the epidemic and the spread of infection at the state level.” Due to the quarterly results, there may be some stock-specific activity in the market. “

Also, developments related to Covid and the trend in the global markets will also give direction to the market. ”Nestle India, Rallis India, and Tata Alexi are also expected to have resulted during the week.
Siddharth Khemka, head of retail research, Motilal Aswal Financial Services, said, “There will be a lot of volatility in the local markets going forward.
