Speaking on the stock market trends Sebi registered equity analyst Simi Bhaumik said, "Market is overall bullish till it is above 10,900 levels. I would advise market investors to take any dip as a buying opportunity as Nifty is trading in the range of 10,900 to 11,200-250 levels." Auto, banking and financial stocks would lead the bull run on Dalal Street, said Bhaumik.

Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC securities said, "Technically, today's weakness in the Nifty could indicate a short term reversal in the market. There is a possibility some more weakness in the next 1-2 sessions. But, the expected decline is unlikely to damage the recent uptrend status of the Nifty. Important supports to be watched around 10900-850, where one may expect reliable upside bounce from the lows."
