Sensex, Nifty posted modest losses in the week ended 8 Sept 2017, as rising geopolitical worries between the US & North Korea diminished sentiments. In the weekend, BSE Sensex closed higher by 25 points, or 0.07%, to 31,688, while the Nifty 50 edged up by 5 points, or 0.05%, to 9,935.

In the past week beginning from August 31, 2017 to September 07, 2017, market was volatile. Weak GDP data, geopolitical worries are some of the key factors that affected the movements of the Indian indices. Sensex ended 68 pts lower, while Nifty managed to close positively, up 12 pts from the last week.

Increasing foreign investors selling due to premium valuation, lackadaisical earnings season and geopolitical worries kept the dictations for the market. Concerns on the North Korea front persisted, however, the good part was inflows by DIIs (Domestic institutional investors) and vigor in the rupee, which offset the downside.

Lack of clarity on the impact of GST in corporate earnings of the companies added to cautiousness. However, for the coming week, the market would keenly watch for the development in global markets. The key data points to be on the lookout are IIP, CPI and WPI.
