While commenting on the excitability in the market, Rajat Bose of stated, “If one were a bullish Traderinvestors should learn to live with this volatility. This volatility would continue. We have seen this kind of volatility earlier. I would not like to go short in this market until I see the Nifty breaching 4,585. As of now, there is no point in being long in this market below 4,585 levels. On the other hand, if the Nifty were to trade above 4,640, then I would be expecting 4,672.”

“It looks like the market is still on its way up. I think 16,000 is possible anytime now, may be in the next one or two days before expiry. Till the expiry, we are in the safe zone. It could be volatile but the markets are clearly headed upwards,” Mr. Baliga added.

Head-Advisory Desk, BNP Paribas, K Ramachandran said the Indian stock market seems to be showing delayed action, given that it has been underperforming global markets for a long time.

“There are areas of concern on the current uptrend and one has to be pretty cautious as the market rally has been very narrow. There are reasons to believe that probably the liquidity surfeit that we have seen is peaking at this point of time. There are definite risks that the tide may turn and the Indian markets may join the rests of the pack in its corrective phase,” he added.
