Commenting on today’s market rally, the Head of Research (Retail) at Kotak Securities, Shrikant Chouhan, said, “Overseas investors are pulling out funds from Indian equity markets as the current rally in US dollar and bond yields is making emerging market assets less attractive. Despite our strong macroeconomic growth performance, India is not insulated from global problems, and hence, any correction in global markets due to worries over further rate hikes would have a rub-off effect here.”
