Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking said that Markets traded volatile in a range but managed to end higher, in continuation to the prevailing uptrend. Initially, favourable global cues helped the benchmark to inch higher but profit-taking at the higher levels erased all the gains. The benchmark hovered in a range thereafter while movement on the broader front kept the participants busy. In line with the benchmark index, volatility remained high on the sectoral front too while the broader indices ended on a flat note.
They feel markets have priced in all the positives (vaccine updates, high FII flows, etc) and now the upcoming domestic macroeconomic data viz. IIP, CPI and WPI would be critical for further directional move. Having said that, we reiterate our view to continue with the trend and avoid contrarian trades.
