Overall, Nifty is having support at 16,000-mark while on the upside 16,500 followed by 16,750 may act as an immediate resistance. While Bank nifty has support around 34,300 while resistance is placed at 36,800 on weekly chart.

During the week, stocks snapped three days of losses as investors pick up beaten-down financial and metal stocks. Foreign capital continued to flee Indian equities due to concerns about surging price pressures and aggressive monetary policy tightening globally. India VIX fell 7 percent this week to 21.48.

Sector-wise, Banking, and Auto sectors were the top gaining sectors whereas Metal and Energy were the top losing sectors.

Key crucial data for the next week include the Indian Q4FY22 GDP growth rate, India’s fiscal deficit data, China’s Manufacturing PMI, and the US Unemployment rate.
