data for July and inflation rate for August are scheduled to be announced on Monday. Besides, wholesale price index (WPI) inflation data will be released on Wednesday.

"The direction of the market in the week ahead will be determined by cues from the global as well as important macroeconomic data points such as inflation, manufacturing and industrial production," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

Other major factors that would influence trading are foreign fund movement and trend in the rupee against the US dollar.

"Global will keenly await the inflation numbers of the US. This data will be closely watched by international since it will affect how the Fed will proceed with future rate hikes," said Apurva Sheth, Head of Market Perspectives, Samco Securities.

"We maintain our bullish view on markets," said Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking Ltd.

"As we're seeing buying interest across the board, the focus should be more on the best-performing sectors viz banking, financials, auto and FMCG, and remain selective in the others," Mishra added.
