Indian Stock Markets next week - Whither?

Indian Stock Markets gained 4% last week and Nifty closed at 2948. Nifty recorded a high of 2969 and then moved sideways in a narrow band. Auto stocks have bounced back nicely, M&M gaining 16%, Maruti and Hero Honda gaining 9% each. Other non index gainers include Hexaware and Educomp up 50% for the week, for no big reasons.

Going ahead, the interim budget to be presented on Monday, which could provide some triggers for the market. Global markets could not make any progress last week. Disappointment came from unclear bail out package and grim economic numbers from Europe kept the lid on equity prices. More importantly , the DOW Jones index is crucially poised at 7800, after bouncing off from lows of 7700.

What to expect next week?

The current up-trend could extend a little further, depending on the interim budget and global markets.Breakout above 3050 will take Nifty to 3100.

Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:

Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.
