Markets started the week on a feeble note and lost nearly 2.5%, following weak global peers. The first half was lackluster however significant selling pressure was witnessed in the latter half and Nifty settled around the day’s low at11,228 levels. The broader markets too followed suit as both the Midcap and Smallcap index ended lower by 3.7% each. On the sector front, except IT which ended flat, all the other indices ended with sharp losses wherein Realty, Telecom and Metal were the top losers.
We feel the rising COVID-19 cases combined with the correction in the US markets spooked the investors and it may deteriorate further if Nifty slips below 11,200. The next major support would come close to 10,800 zone. Since we’re in the expiry week, traders should be more cautious and we suggest preferring hedged positions. Investors, on the other hand, should use this fall as an opportunity and gradually accumulate quality stocks.
