The trading day's volatility has left many speculating about the market's next moves and the factors influencing these fluctuations.
As the weekend approaches, market participants are left with a sense of anticipation and uncertainty, eager to see how the coming week will unfold in this dynamic financial landscape.
Varun Aggarwal, Founder and MD, of Profit Idea, said, “This offers excellent opportunities in selected blue chip, mid and small-cap space. Overall market breath is positive in spite of indexes being red. Selected Banking, IT bluechip stocks offer good discounts and can be picked up.”
“We continue to focus with bullish bias as long as 18887 levels are not breached on the downside. Good OI base at 19000 Nifty levels. Negative global cues are opportunities for investors as the Indian outlook looks robust”, said Aggarwal.
The decrease in values can be attributed to a combination of factors, including global economic concerns, fluctuating commodity prices, and domestic economic indicators.
