Oil Price Surge: A 4% surge in crude oil prices intensifies the market unease. The fear of supply disruptions in West Asia adds another layer of complexity, potentially impacting India's trade and fiscal dynamics.

Market Cautious Ahead of Q2 Earnings: Investors are treading carefully ahead of India Inc.'s Q2 earnings. Anticipation of a softer quarter and cautious optimism in various sectors contribute to the market's guarded stance.

Interest Rates and Economic Slowdown: Lingering concerns over rising interest rates and global economic slowdown persist. Recent cues from the US and RBI's stance have left investors in a contemplative state.

FII Selling: Foreign institutional investors have been actively offloading Indian equities, reflecting a cautious approach amidst changing global dynamics.

These are some of the concerns that are highlighted, accordingly, there might be others as well!
