“The pace of the rally has slowed down over the last few weeks, however, the underlying momentum is still strong. We believe that traders can lighten up their long-leveraged positions and book some profits in the immediate term. But medium to long-term investors must continue to hold on to their positions and use dips to buy more,” said Apurva Sheth, Head of Market Perspectives & Research, SAMCO Securities
The pause in interest rates from both the US Fed and RBI is a major sign of relief for corporates who were paying interest costs through their nose. Private and government capex is also at an all-time high which should boost infrastructure spending. This will have a ripple effect and fuel growth, Sheth added.
“We are just months away from India and US elections. We believe the positive momentum should continue as the governments generally tend to do everything in their control to keep the market participants happy in order to be re-elected to power,” she said.
Similarly, the Nifty of the NSE too opened on a positive note at 18,849.40 points after closing at 18,816.70 points on Tuesday. During the morning trade, the Nifty touched a high of 18,875.90 and a low of 18,804.15 points. The Nifty is trading at 18,804.60 points.
