These factors will decide the direction of the market this week

The stock market will follow global trends in the absence of any major domestic events this week and it is expected that the market movement will be limited in this period.

Investors should trade carefully in key indices and take into account any developments in global markets. The BSE benchmark Sensex lost 654.54 points, or 1.26 per cent, last week.
