A turbulent week saw the Nifty closing down 3.6 percent at 8,002, but this seems a marginal loss considering Monday’s intraday crash where the index touched a low of 7,667, its sharpest fall in 30 months. The week saw net selling to the tune of $1.9 billion by foreign portfolio investors with mid- and small-caps facing the maximum brunt.

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.
