However, for near term, Gautam Shah, CMT Associate Director, Chief Technical Analyst- JM Financial Services Ltd said, "One should not get carried away in believing that this run-up would continue for good. For the first time this year the market looks overbought technically and hence could shed some weight in the near term."
Shah added, "Over the medium-term we see the Indian market scaling greater heights and testing the 11000 mark and hence investors are advised to stay put and add to positions on dips of 3-5%."
Bansal said, "If one looks at the bigger picture, results season has not given too many positive surprises, so the markets should consolidate around this number. The risks are ever present but manifest in different ways, one will only know the reason for things turning with the benefit of hindsight."
Is it worth investing now?
Shankar said, "Our recommendations to long term investors is to remain invested in these markets as the India shining story still has lot of steam in it. However, global geo-political situation could cause aberrations as a results of which it is always prudent to keep booking some profits whenever new peaks are attained."
"We see signification resistance around the 10000-10100 mark and do not think the market is ready to get past this hurdle in the current attempt.Profit booking in trading/leverage positions is recommend," said Shah.
