profit booking after the recent surge helped Nifty hit record closing high on
the last session of previous week. Key indices fell in three out of five
sessions of the week. Indices staged some recovery towards the closing sessions
of the week after witnessing drubbing during the initial few sessions.
The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, fell 227.59 points or
0.76% at 29,421.40. The Nifty 50 index shed 52.05 points or 0.56% at 9,108.

On the Economic Front,India's current
account deficit (CAD) at $7.9 billion (1.4% of GDP) in Q3 of FY 2017, was
higher than $7.1 billion (1.4% of GDP) in Q3 of FY 2016 and $3.4 billion (0.6%
of GDP) in the preceding quarter. The data was released by government after
market hours on 23 March 2017.
Despite a slightly lower trade deficit on a year-on-year (y-o-y) basis,
the CAD widened primarily on account of a decline in net invisible receipts.
Net services receipts moderated on a y-o-y basis, primarily owing to the fall
in earnings from software, financial services and charges for intellectual

Global Economic News:
May sets date for
beginning Brexit process
British prime minister Theresa May this week set 29 March as the day
that the United Kingdom will notify the European Union of its intent to leave
the EU, beginning the two-year period set out in Article 50 of the Lisbon
Treaty for negotiating the terms under which the UK will exit. The negotiations
are expected to be thorny because the EU is loath to give the UK a “good” deal
for fear of prompting additional EU members to quit.
European banks take up more cheap loans than expected
Eurozone banks took up more super-cheap loans than expected from the
European Central Bank’s Targeted Longer-Term Refinancing Operation (TLTRO) this
week. A total of €223.5 billion of the zero percent four-year loans were
placed, far in excess of the €125 billion economists had expected. In a sign of
policy normalization, the ECB announced last month that this would be its last
European economy extends uptick
Flash purchasing managers’ indices jumped to their highest level in
nearly six years today as the eurozone composite PMI rose to a robust 56.7.
Economists extrapolate from that data that gross domestic product growth is
growing at a rate in excess of an annualized 2%. The euro strengthened on the
data, as well as on hopes that a centrist candidate will derail populist Marine
Le Pen in the upcoming French presidential elections.
BOJ to stick to stimulus
Bank of Japan governor Haruhiko Kuroda said today that there is no
reason to withdraw monetary stimulus now, or to raise the bank's bond yield
target, since inflation remains well below the BOJ’s 2% goal. Recent upticks in
Japanese growth and inflation have raised questions as to whether the central
bank could alter its super-easy monetary policy. For now, those questions can
be been laid to rest.
Brazil buffeted by meat scandal
Exports of Brazilian meat have plummeted in the wake of a food safety
scandal. The meat products are now banned in China, Japan, Mexico and the
European Union, while the United States has redoubled food safety inspections,
according to the US Department of Agriculture. In an operation dubbed “Weak
Flesh,” dozens of Brazilian food inspectors have been arrested for ignoring
expired or adulterated processed foods in recent weeks.
Tighter Chinese liquidity eyed
Tightening liquidity conditions in China’s banking system are raising
concerns that economic growth could be negatively impacted as the year
progresses. Recently, China has been taking steps to rein in its shadow banking
system amid fears that the property market could overheat. Chinese iron ore
futures tumbled 19%, the largest weekly decline on record, as the People’s Bank
of China introduced fresh borrowing curbs on home lending.
Markets fear health care failure could crimp Trump’s clout
After delaying a scheduled vote on the American Health Care Act on
Thursday, lawmakers have set a vote for late Friday despite apparently still
not having enough votes to assure passage. If passed, the bill would be sent on
to the Senate for its consideration. Observers grew concerned this week that if
the Trump administration fails to advance one of its signature agenda items
straight out of the gate that it may also struggle to pass market-friendly
items like tax reform and infrastructure investment later in the Congressional
session. A protracted fight on health care, at a minimum, would push those
pieces back on the legislative calendar, delaying their economic impact. The
failure to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act would likely diminish the
new administration’s political capital.

Indian Market Outlook:
Market on March 17, 2017
The Nifty traded with a bullish bias and scaled above the 9100 mark on
a closing basis. A bigger picture shows that the Nifty held on to the trend line drawn from the previous swing lows. On the hourly chart, it has formed an
impulse on the upside, which suggests that the larger upside potential is still
intact. The range of 8980- 9000, which had earlier acted as a resistance zone,
is now providing support to the Index. On the weekly chart, the Nifty has posted
a negative close. Nevertheless, it can be taken as a part of a higher degree
fifth wave on the upside. The short-term and medium-term targets on the upside
are 9230 and 9500, respectively.

the sectoral pivots traded inline with the benchmark and failed to post any

however, volatility will inch higher on stock specific front due to expiry of
March month derivatives contracts.

gradually add quality stocks on every dips.
