After opening on a flat note amid weak global cues, the Indian equity indices recovered sharply post nine sessions of continuous decline. The Nifty index traded range-bound before touching day’s high of 11,295 in the second half and closed higher by 0.7% at 11,222 (up 74 points). The broader market indices - BSE-Midcap and Smallcap too ended higher by 0.6% and 0.3% respectively. Amongst the sectoral indices IT witnessed correction, while buying interest was seen across all the other sectors with Telecom, Oil & Gas and Capital Goods gaining the most in the range of 1.2-2.8%.
We have a cautious outlook on the markets in the near-term given the recent escalation in US-China trade war. On the domestic front too, mixed corporate earnings as well as speculations regarding central election outcome would continue to induce volatility in the markets. Further, Oil price and currency movement will also keep investors on guard. Hence, we advise investors to focus on fundamentally sound companies with reasonable valuations and traders should hedge their positions.
