Views on November AMFI Data by Mr Akhil Chaturvedi, Associate Director & Head of Sales, Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company: “November 2020 has be a one the better months for equity markets with Nifty 50 at all-time high and a very strong recovery in the mid and small cap indices, with mid and small caps after three years of negative returns turned positive for the CY 2020. We have also seen record FII buying to the extent of 60k cr in month of November backed by strong liquidity, lower interest rates and increased interest in emerging markets.
The markets are clearly pricing in the positives of recovering economic data points, lower interest rates and sign of vaccine coming out very soon and all of this leading to a very positive impact on earnings in coming quarters and more specifically FY 22.
Now, optically from the lows of March 2020 correction markets have given some stupendous returns and leading to belief that markets are over-heated and therefore outflow from equity mutual funds to the extent of 35k cr highest ever seen. Adjusted for inflows of 17k cr (50% of which would be SIP flows) the net redemptions have been almost 18k cr.
All of these outflows would not have gone completely out of equities as an asset class, but probably moved to direct equities as investors have had some successes in past few months investing directly, some part of this liquidity could have also flown to real estate with renewed interest amongst genuine buyers wanting to own home at lower interest rates and falling taxes and prices. There also investors who would be sitting on cash to deploy once again post any meaningful correction in near future.
Similar trends have been witnessed in past as well, it will be interesting to see market movements vs. domestic flows trend in next few months and what would be the trigger points which would lead retail/ HNI investors come back to equities once again meaningfully.”

Goa Carbon Shares Hits Upper Circuit After November Production Jumps 58%
Goa Carbon share price hit 5 percent upper circuit on BSE after the company declared its business performance for the month of November.
November 2020 production of the petrochemical company was up by 58.8 percent at 14,309.200 MT against 9,006.000 MT in October 2020. The three plants of the company including Bilaspur Plant produced 434.200 MT while the Goa Plant produced 5,590.000 MT and the Paradeep Plant produced 8,285.000 MT.
Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking: The way the market is ignoring any unfavorable news flow and just focusing on positives, is a perfect characteristic of a ‘Bull Market’. But at the same time, as a trader, such euphoric situation is difficult to ride after one point, because sooner or later, one surprising down move (especially overnight) can catch you on the wrong foot.
The level of 13,400-13,500 are the immediate levels in the upward direction; whereas on the lower side, 13,292-13,242 should be seen as key supports. Any decisive move below 13,242 would result in an extended profit booking in the market. At present, midcaps are enjoying their merry days and hence, breakout candidates are fetching handsome returns. But from here on, one should reduce the position size in midcaps too and should follow strict stop losses, because any day when profit booking aggravates, breakout failure is imminent.
