Amar Ambani, Senior President and Head of Research, YES Securities said, “Indian equities are significantly up today, following positive cues from global markets, consecutive days of decline in intensity of covid-19 cases and reports from banking sector on healthy growth in advances as well as comfortable deposit position. However, this big up move is on a smaller base vis-à-vis where markets were around three months back. A rally on the Nifty to 10500 is possible in the next four weeks, where it will face still resistance. The year 2020 will continue to see high volatility even in the aftermath of the health crisis. It will be a great time to lap up stocks with a 3-year horizon but only after sufficient liquidity is kept aside for emergencies.”
