In the absence of major national clues, a few key global events will take center stage on Dalal Street this week, as concerns over aggressive COVID-era interest rate hikes and their impact on economic growth continue to rattle financial markets.
All eyes will be on testimony from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell as the U.S. central bank faces the task of reining in inflation without disrupting growth.
A multitude of macroeconomic data points will also be closely monitored.
The week that was
With the exception of Apollo Hospitals, all Nifty50 voters suffered weekly losses.
Broader markets also bled, reflecting weakness in major indexes.

|Clever Midcap 100||-6.2|
|Clever small cap 100||-7.9|
The road ahead
“The US central bank’s aggressive stance has sparked fears of a recession, which is rippling through markets around the world. However, easing global energy supplies could change the dynamic ahead. , participants should follow the trend, which indicates more pain to come,” said Ajit Mishra, Vice President of Research at Religare Broking.
A short cover bounce cannot be ruled out this week, according to Yesha Shah, head of equity research at Samco Securities.
Shah recommends traders maintain a negative to neutral outlook and use any bounce as an exit opportunity.
She sees immediate support at 15,200 and immediate resistance at 16,200.
Mishra is of the view that the Nifty50 is approaching the 14,800-15,000 area, having decisively given up major support around 15,650.
