Our Analysis

This week the benchmark Indices have witnessed a decent upmove After the Pakistan PM has shown the 'gesture of peace' by safely returning IAF pilot wing Commander Abhinandan Vardhaman. The outshiners in this week was the Mid-cap & Small- Cap as they moved in the top gear and dominated the D-street. Further, adding optimism on the D-Street was the rally in the rupee, driven by a decline in the prices of the crude oil. Also, The consistent FII buying into Indian equities in the past two weeks has also had a salutary impact on the Indian rupee.

The upmove over the last few session in the benchmark indices was exhausted, there are certain possibilities that the indices may face some consolidation at the higher levels in the near term. Domestically, on the macro front, all focus will be on the key data like IIP, CPI, WPI and India's current account deficit. On the global front, the development in the US-China trade, progress on Brexit will be closely watched. Since the broader indices have outperformed the frontline indices we recommend to stick with the quality and fundamental sound companies instead of chasing down the momentum blindly.
