According to Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services: “We don’t expect the volatility to cool down until the geo-political issues are resolved.Further, issues like inflation, FII selling and upcoming Fed rate hike could add to the volatility in the near term.”

“However, the market could not stretch the direction and turned negative as uncertainty in the global markets continued.Investors stood sidelined, impacting the volumes.The market is expected to be volatile due to the upcoming Fed meeting and state election results.”
