Apart from the result announcements, investors are also keeping an eye on industrial production and manufacturing output data for December that is going to be released today.
Industrial output rose to a 13-month high of 5.7% YoY in November. The same declined by 1.9% YoY in October.
It would be too early to conclude that demonetisation had no impact on the industrial output. The data for the month of December will provide more clarity in this regard.
