Markets Next Week: US Presidential Outcome Remains Key


There was not a single day this week, in which the indices ended in the green. In fact, the Sensex fell for 6 straight days and is expected to be volatile next week. IT stocks took a bad hit with stocks like Infosys, Wipro and MindTree falling to 52-week lows, while pharma stocks too had a bad week.


Markets Next Week: US Presidential Outcome Remains Key
Those pharma companies which have large exposure to United States, saw knee-jerk reaction on Friday after a media report indicated that US prosecutors are undertaking an investigation into suspected price collusion. Banking stocks also fell as Foreign Portfolio Investors sold heavily on worries over the US election outcome.

On the other hand, if Clinton wins, expect the global markets to rally. IT stocks in India, which have languished for long now, may see a sharp bounce, should Hillary Clinton win the US Presidential elections. At the moment it seems a statistical dead-heat and nobody knows the outcome. If you have a penchant for risk go ahead and stick your neck out and buy.

Chances are bright that you might have Hillary Clinton as the next President of the United States.
