The earnings season has kicked off in right earnest with good results being posted by IT major Infosys. The company surprised the markets with good margins and maintenance of dollar revenue guidance. Markets which were stung on Tuesday with a 3 per cent loss in the benchmark indices recovered lost ground and on Friday rallied on account of the Infosys results.

Sensex, Nifty May Turn Volatile Next Week Ahead of Greece Elections
The next few weeks are likely to see heightened volatility for the markets in the light of elections in Greece. Dealers say that the markets could react later after 25th, if parties that are anti-austerity are voted to power in Greece. This could lead to worries over its bailout programme and difficult talks. Some analysts point out the probability of a Greece exit from the euro as very low. Although, if it happens it could be catastrophic for the markets.

The Sensex and the Nifty have rallied sharply in the last one year and it is now increasingly becoming difficult to make stupendous returns.

Dealers advise some caution as most of the good has already been factored in and the potential of a fall cannot altogether be ruled out. Most of the earnings that are likely to come in from corporates are not exactly going to be robust.

The only positive that one can see is the possibility of an interest rate cut. However, if things in Europe go from bad to worse the possibility of the Reserve Bank of India cutting interest rates is ruled out.

Investor are advised caution and buy only on dips. After all, it is important to remember that markets have already rallied sharply in the last one year.
