Nifty futures were trading 22.50 points or 0.14 per cent up at 15,893.50 on Singaporean Exchange. BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 were likely to see a gap-up opening on Monday. Market participants will track the progress of monsoon, pace of vaccination, further unlocking of states, movement of Brent crude, investment pattern of foreign institutional investors, rupee trajectory, along with other global cues. Analysts expect earnings momentum to accelerate in FY22 as the pace of vaccination has picked up and the economy opens up further. “Good monsoon so far also supported bullish sentiments. Hence we expect the long term trend of the equity market to remain positive. Near term direction of the market would be determined by commodity price led inflation and its impact on interest rates,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
