“There are mixed cues for the market with some global tailwinds and domestic headwinds. Strength in the mother market US, declining dollar index and stability in European markets are positives. But these positives are likely to be overwhelmed by the domestic headwinds like high valuations which have become unsustainable and rising commodity inflation which will impact the margins of firms.
