· Private Banks like HDFC Bank, Kotak and ICICI could react a sharp rise in BB quality loan portfolio and impact on overall gross NPAs

· Higher taxable slabs and lower rates in Union Budget 2020 could be positive for consumption and banking stocks during the week

· Fiscal deficit outlook in the Budget 2020 under 3.8% will be seen as positive for banks and other rate sensitive sectors

· F&O expiry on Thursday could see buying and long rollover in budget beneficiary stocks in the consumption space

· Big Q3 results this week across include heavyweights like HDFC, SBI, Bharti, Bajaj Auto, Maruti, HUL and Tech Mahindra among others

· Positive update on Chinese corona virus will be the key as weak demand due to the pandemic is now a real threat

· Hints on the budget treatment of income tax, LTCG tax and DDT will be big triggers as markets are betting on rationalization

· There are expectations on the AGR resolution front and any concession for Bharti and Vodafone Idea will be welcomed by telcos this week

· In the economic survey ahead of the budget watch for growth and inflation outlook setting the stance of the Budget 2020

· VIX shot up sharply during the week and VIX above 15 levels could add to expiry volatility if the market is weak

· Keep an eye on the US Fed meet on 28-29 Jan. While rate cuts are ruled out, focus for Indian markets will be on the language and outlook
