Speaking on the current market scenario Simi Bhaumik, SEBI registered technical equity analyst told Zee Business Online, "The market is trading range bound and its range is 11,400 to 11,600. It may become bullish once it breaks the 11,610 levels and sustains above these levels. Till then, buy on dips is the best strategy that I would recommend to the stock market investors.
