The Year 2022 has started! Investors of mutual funds and share market are expecting a lot of rising from the market, in the meanwhile financial experts are once again tensed due to the expected third wave of COVID-19 and the new variant, OMICRON!

Due to the third COVID-19 wave and the increasing case of the new OMICRON variant, the whole world is facing lockdown in a phased manner. In India too, many states have declared night curfew, the odd-even rule for the opening of shops, and many other steps.

If we look at some of the market events back in a few months, then in October 2021, we saw FIIs (foreign institutional investors) exiting with investments worth Rs 90,000 crore. Also, South Asian markets witnessed a dip due to the Omicron scare.

Overall, the market sentiment is extremely bearish, as a majority of the shares are declining.

What’s happening In the Indian Economy? 

After the Fed announced a hike in interest rate amid the pandemic, there was depreciation seen in the rupee against the dollar. Currently, the rupee has depreciated at a 15-month low against the dollar.

Well, the Indian economy is trying its best to be on the recovery track and still aiming to achieve 70-75 percent of pre-COVID-level capacity utilization.

Infra is getting a good push from the government and real estate is getting traction with booking for apartments reaching new highs and people shifting from economy to premium class.
