Mr. Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking Ltd:
Markets made a smart comeback and posted gains of over a percent. Initially, the bias was on the negative side, in line with the previous session’s fall but the trend reversed in the latter half, thanks to healthy buying in metals, banking and financial packs. Consequently, the Nifty settled near 12,987 levels. The broader markets too ended in a positive range of 0.7-0.9%. Barring oil & gas, all the sectoral indices ended in the green.
This rebound indicates that bulls are in control however the possibility of consolidation is still high and it would be healthy for the markets. In the near term, markets would continue to take cues from their global peers. On the domestic front, India’s GDP data outcome schedule on 27th November will be on the radar. Religare reiterates their view to focus more on the selection of stocks during this consolidation phase and continue with the “buy on dips” approach.
