Markets Stepping Back To Gallop 12000 Mark

Share Market Weekly

Our Analysis

Once again Nifty breached the 12,000 mark, however, failed to hold on it. The heavyweight Reliance trading at all-time high kept the bullish momentum intact for the benchmark. Along with that, the pharma stocks outperformed during the week which suggests the bottom out for the pharma sector after a prolonged correction.

This week, the buzz was created by the announcement of the cabinet, which addressed the key issues of the economy. The strategic sale in the 5 PSUs, targeting 1.5 lakh crores to address fiscal deficit is expected to drive markets in the near term.

Further, a 2-year moratorium on the spectrum payment due would provide great relief to stressed telecom companies. Moreover, the likely tariff increase by the telecom companies is expected to bring stability in the sector.

On the technical front, Nifty seems indecisive right now. Currently, the broader range of 11,800-12000 is respected by the market. With bullish sentiments, the strength for breaking the 12000 levels and holding on to it remains the key to step up to new highs. In our view, keeping a close eye and staying on the toes to enter would be beneficial in the near term.
