  • Dalal Street went through its most turbulent week in nearly seven years, with benchmark indices crashing about seven per cent and several bluechip stocks plummeting even further. The losses were on the back of a massive sell-off by global investors as they turned risk averse because of gloomy outlook for global economy. Foreign investors pulled out over $400 million from stocks during the week, extending their 2016 selling tally to over $2 billion.

  • Analysts saw revival hopes in the market. The Bank Nifty has fared somewhat better compared to the Nifty today, said Dr CK Narayan of Chart Advise. I am actually enthused to buy a 14,500 Bank Nifty call, he said. Given the currency choppiness, this pullback can head towards 7,080-7,100 levels, said Mitesh Thacker. That is the primary target and then we will take it further from there, said Thacker.

  • After market hours today: India's retail inflation marginally inched up to 5.69% in January, from 5.61% in December. This is the fifth consecutive month of rise. Retail food inflation rose 6.85% in January from 6.4% in December.
