Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking: Market continues its dream run and it’s one of such rarest phases when it just refuses to fall and keeps giving the gravity defying move. As we have been mentioning for a few days, although it’s always a soothing factor for the market not correcting; but at the same time, there will always be a hanging sword of the market surprising with a sudden correction any time. Hence, to be on the safer side, we are advocating booking profits in the ongoing rally. 

The level of 13,450-13,500 continues to be a key resistance zone; whereas on the lower side, crucial support base shifts at 13,300 – 13,250 now. A move below this support zone would result in an extended correction.

Stock Update: ICICI Bank share price gained in the early trade after the company approved to sell its stake in ICICI Securities via offer for sale (OFS).

The floor price for OFS has been set at Rs 440 and will be carried out on December 9 and 10. Just after the market opening, the stock was trading 4 percent to Rs 512.45 apiece.

Manish Hathiramani, Proprietary Index Trader and Technical Analyst, Deen Dayal Investments: The markets have once again opened on an enthusiastic note but we are still in the midst of the resistance zone of 13400-13700. Regular booking of profits would be a prudent way of approaching the index. While the trend is bullish, traders must trade cautiously and upgrade to stop losses so as to conserve their profits. 13100 is good support for this week.

They said that the quarterly data has probably been misread and the past expenditure trends can’t be applied to this year’s government spend.

Sources also indicate that the normal spending restrictions that kick in the last quarter of every fiscal will not be applicable this year, as the ministries still have time to spend in the next 3 months.

“Expenditure will exceed the budget estimate”, they said. The government had estimated FY21 spending at Rs 30.42 lakh crore and 55 percent of this has been exhausted by October-end, as against over 59 percent spent in the corresponding period of last year. Read more here
