The coming week will be interesting week as it marks the last full week of the financial year 2019-20. Here are some key cues.

· The F&O expiry will hold the key this week. This expiry must be seen in conjunction with the SEBI decision to put restrictions on speculative positions and short sales

· Virus afflictions cross 300 in India and markets will be keen to see impact of the Coronavirus stabilizing this week

· The big Dow loss of 900 points on Friday will be an overhang with SGX Nifty already trading 600 points lower and pointing to Nifty weakness on Monday.

· A key metrics to watch will be the Yes Bank stock price. Yes Bank escaped a run on deposits but that is still a risk. Stock price stability will be of greater interest

· RBI intervention in the currency markets will hold the key to the rupee value after RBI intervened at 75/$ by selling dollars to the tune of $5 billion to support INR

· RBI has take rapid steps on liquidity to the tune of Rs.40,000 crore but now the markets are seriously awaiting for cues of rate cuts

· Electronics package of Rs.49,000 cr if announced this week, could hold a big hope for the beleaguered hardware space. Watch for large hardware players

· FIIs selling now stands at Rs.60,000 crore in last one month. That has not shown any signs of respite and will be a key indicator

· Oil prices may see bounce from $25/bbl with storage demand rising. Global markets need crude to take support for growth confidence

· Private banks to be weak after Alliance Bernstein downgraded HDFC Bank target as it also raises questions over NPAs in the retail portfolios of private banks

· With Buyback and interim dividend announcements picking up steam, these could be triggers for stock price boost

· Consumption stocks could take a hit this week on economy shutdown as demand for a host of goods and services are likely to come down.
