Global Markets:

US markets are closed today as it is Labor day today, hence we will not have any cues from there tomorrow. But for Friday, as discussed in the Saturday meet, US markets closed mixed due to a long weekend and also jobs data that showed some low down in hiring.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 74.47 points, or 0.21%, to 35,369.35, the S&P 500 lost 1.41 points, or 0.03%, to 4,535.54 and the Nasdaq Composite added 32.34 points, or 0.21%, to 15,363.52.

Asian markets continue to be mixed and we don't see major cues coming in from there for the Indian market for the past 2 weeks as discussed in our meet.

Indian Market:

Trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a gap up opening today at levels above 17350, if that happens, we could see some profit booking in the morning itself.

It is very important for the market to hold up above 17200 today to continue the up move, and if it comes below 17200, they can see a major profit booking kicking in bringing the market down further. So I would suggest you book some profits as the market opens on stocks that are in a good position.

The industrial output for the month of July is the key data to watch out for in the coming week, which is scheduled on Friday. Experts expect the growth to be in double digits on a low base in the year-ago period and largely around similar lines of June data, with the strong manufacturing PMI data, easing restrictions by states in India, and increased economic activity. However, Friday being a holiday in India on account of Vinayaka Chaturthi, we might see its effect only next Monday.

After a couple of weeks of selling, foreign institutional investors returned to India with a substantial amount of inflow on the back of very dovish commentary of US Fed Chair Jerome Powell in the speech at Jackson Hole. Now all eyes are on the Fed meeting scheduled later in September and till then the street will closely watch whether the inflow will continue at the same pace going ahead.

FIIs have net bought Rs 6,867.73 crore worth of shares in the week gone by, whereas domestic institutional investors seem to have preferred to book profits as they net sold Rs 1,421.12 crore worth of shares in the same period.

The movement in the Nifty Bank is crucial for the Nifty50's northward journey going ahead as in the passing week, it was one of the key supportive sectors that helped Nifty50 surpass 17,300 levels. Experts feel Nifty Bank needs to strongly hold on to the 36,000 mark going ahead for further upside which ultimately is expected to help the benchmark to continue its run-up.

Some key events this week can affect the market next week.
