India stocks and ETFs are on watch Thursday after Goldman Sachs upgraded the country from Market Weight to Overweight, citing a growth recovery and a moderation of inflation.

Goldman forecast India's GDP growth to accelerate from 5.4% in 2012 to 7.2% in 2014, and remain high through 2015-2016.

Goldman sees headline inflation remaining high through 3Q2013, before gradually coming off due to a waning of food and oil shocks.

They forecast the Reserve Bank of India to cut policy rates by 50 bp in each of 2013, 2014 and 2015.

"Reform initiatives and changes in government leadership this fall have created a sense of optimism among the domestic investor base for the first time in over a year, and the risk of policy missteps in 2013 has been lowered," Goldman Sachs said.
