In Samvat 2080, the markets are expected to remain volatile and investors will watch out for a slew of geopolitical events around the globe. The general elections in India would be one of the key triggers for the markets.

Since last Diwali, the frontline index Nifty 50 has risen around 10% and also hit a record high above 20,000-mark.

The Indian stock market has given decent returns in the last one year and is set to end the Vikram Samvat 2079 on a higher note. Since last Diwali, the frontline index Nifty 50 has risen around 10% and also hit a record high above 20,000-mark. Broader markets, the midcap and smallcap indices have outperformed the benchmarks during this year.

The gains in domestic markets over the last year comes on the back of strong macroeconomic fundamentals, healthy corporate earnings growth and foreign fund inflows.

In Samvat 2080, the markets are expected to remain volatile and investors will watch out for a slew of geopolitical events around the globe. The general elections in India would be one of the key triggers for the markets.

However, analysts are bullish on the domestic markets given the resilient macros of the Indian economy.

“The market is likely to witness a major rally before the next Samvat. Once there is some clarity on the outcome of the next general elections due before May 2024, markets will rally. The resilient Indian economy and good corporate earnings will attract big investment into the market," said VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

He believes if the US bond yields continue to decline, the foreign institutional investors (FIIs) will also become buyers in the domestic market. 

“The bull case scenario is a flood of institutional money - both domestic and foreign - and a stable government triggering a big rally in the market taking the Nifty beyond 23,000 by next Samvat. Large caps across sectors will lead the rally," said Vijayakumar.
