Markets extended rebound for the second consecutive session, tracking firm global cues. After the upbeat start, the benchmark moved from strength to strength for most of the day however marginal selling in the last hour trimmed some gains, Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd said.
“This move eased some pressure, but sustainability is the key. Participants are keenly eyeing the US Fed chair’s speech for cues and the progress of the monsoon is also on the radar, Mishra added.
“A decisive move above 15,700 in Nifty can further fuel the rebound to the 16,000-zone else the decline would resume. Stocks, on the other hand, are offering opportunities on both sides so traders should plan accordingly,” the VP – Research at Religare Broking said in its note.
