Previous Week: Indian equity market bounced back modestly in the previous week ended on February 13, 2009. The strong undertone was set on the very first day of the week after the GDP estimate for 2008-09 revised down to 7.1% from 9% earlier, which gave hope for further rate cuts. Expectation of stimulus package from the government in interim budget due to on 16th February also supported the marketsentiment throughout the week even as global markets saw sharp downfall.

Week Ahead: All eyes in the market will be on the interim budget that is going to be delivered on the very first day in the coming week. Expectations have already built up for some sector specific measures that are likely to be announced and some sectors already have shown strength e.g. metals etc. The market is expected to have a direction for the short-term at least from the interim budget. The RBI is also expected to cut rates very soon and if it comes in the coming week, it would be one positive factor for the market. The inflation is also expected to fall further.
