How will the markets move further?

Experts are of a view that markets further will dance on the tune of MPC outcome in the coming days, the ongoing corporate earnings session, and a slew of macro data. The primary market action this week will also guide the market direction as nearly four IPOs will hit the street to raise Rs 3,600 crore and furthermore, three IPOs will hit the street in the upcoming week.

Companies like Devyani International, Windlas Biotech, Exxaro Tiles, and Krsnaa Diagnostics will open their offers on Wednesday, August 4 and close on Friday, August 6. Devyani International operates KFC and Pizza Hut in India whereas Krsnaa Diagnostics, a testing chain of labs operating during the ongoing pandemic. Devyani International shares will be offered at Rs 86-90 apiece, while Krsnaa Diagnostics has priced its shares at Rs 933-954 each.

Recently, Policybazaar and Nykaa have also filed their preliminary papers with the Sebi this week. Both firms together could bring in around Rs 10,000 crore in the primary market, as per reports.
