It was a week of contrasts with the Nifty trying to break above 8,500 levels during the first three days till cracks appeared on Thursday, which led to a sharp fall. Though the index recovered to about 8,300 from the lows of 8,235, there was an underlying fear that adverse international sentiments may have an overbearing effect on India’s markets.

The Nifty closed the week slightly lower at 8,518 but markets were volatile and threatened to break 8,350 levels before a spirited rally. Hopes of a rate cut by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) ahead of its September monetary policy review and chances of a special parliament session for the Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill turned sentiment positive even as global cues remained weak.

The Nifty continued its losing streak, falling 1.03 percent during the week to end at 8,570. The present market behaviour is in stark contrast to what we had witnessed in the last 12 months. Intraday rallies are being sold into and positive news flow is unable to sustain the markets at higher levels.
