These figures will also affect the market
He said that global trends, rupee movement, Brent crude oil prices and foreign funds trend will also be important for the market. Meena said the quarterly results season would begin with IT companies. TCS, Infosys and HCL Tech will announce their quarterly results during the week.

Starting the new year on a cautious note
Milind M, Executive Director, Julier Bayer India, said Indian stock markets started the new year on a cautious note. The same trend was seen in the markets, which was in the last month of last year i.e. December. He said that inflation and continuous outflow of foreign funds have affected the market sentiment. Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services, said the release of the minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting has taken a toll on investors’ risk appetite. This detail has indicated further increase in interest rates in 2023. Nair said that this week IT sector companies TCS, Infosys, HCL Tech and Wipro will announce their quarterly results. On the other hand, on January 12, the figures of IIP and CPI will come.
