Ahead of the Union Budget 2021, the stock market has been very volatile. The India VIX index was up nearly 4% to 23.25 on Monday. Benchmark equity indices plunged with BSE's Sensex falling over 500 points dragged by losses in IT and FMCG stocks.

 

NSE's Nifty settled 133 points or 0.93% lower at 14,239.

Among major losers for the day was Reliance Industries. The stock traded 4.96% lower at Rs 1,948.00 apiece on BSE, having slumped as much as 5.34% to Rs 1,940.15 earlier on Monday after the conglomerate posted a sharp drop in quarterly revenue from its dominant oil-to-chemicals business.

Markets expected to remain volatile

Markets may remain volatile in this holiday-shortened week amid monthly derivatives expiry, quarterly earnings and the upcoming Union Budget, analysts said.

"Going ahead, markets may continue to remain highly volatile ahead of monthly expiry and Union Budget 2021. The ongoing earnings season which kicked off on a strong note would further add to the volatility. The Fed monetary policy is also due this week," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd, as quoted in a PTI report.

 

"If the recovery in growth and corporate earnings, currently underway in India, gathers momentum, the markets may further surprise on the upside. But it is important to appreciate that the market is overvalued from the short- term perspective. At high levels, the market is vulnerable to a correction," VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services had said.
