Indian Markets Outlook for the week – 15.Jun.2015 to 19.Jun.2015 
(Stock indices are seen extending losses)

Stock indices are seen extending losses as sentiment remains bearish after they ended at eight-month lows Thursday. According to provisional data on the National Stock Exchange website, foreign institutional investors net sold Indian stocks worth 6.23 bln rupees on Thursday.

The Fed (US Federal Reserve) meeting next week, bad earnings, rise in crude and weak rupee are all cumulatively weighing on the market. Some caution during the day is expected ahead of the industrial output data for April and headline inflation rate for May, which are due after market hours.

India's headline inflation rate, based on the new Consumer Price Index (Combined), is likely to inch up to 5.0% in May on the back of higher fuel and vegetable prices. Industrial production growth is likely to ease to 1.3% in April, despite a low base, due to poor core sector output, weak exports and manufacturing activity.
