A volatile week saw the Nifty surging on Tuesday after weak U.S. jobs data, with liquidity gushing in for the next two days followed by a correction on Friday after the ECB left policy rates unchanged. The decision gives room for the U.S. Fed to consider raising interest rates in the near term, which is likely to hit inflows to emerging markets like India. North Korea’s nuclear test also seemed to rattle sentiment. The Nifty finally closed at 8,866, up about 0.7 percent.
