Our Analysis

This week the benchmark Indices have witnessed a decent upmove after the Election Commission announced Lok Sabha elections dates on Monday. The market also witnessed a rally in mid-cap stocks after a long time. Banking and Financials services have been a key driver of the current rally, which lifted benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty to the fresh six-month high.

The upmove over the last few session in the benchmark indices is strong, there are certain possibilities that the indices may move further the higher levels in the near term. Domestically, on the macro front, all focus will be on the key data like CPI and India's current account deficit.
