10:45 am Outlook:
Ramesh Damani, Member, BSE said he is positive about equities as he thinks the underlying strength is enormous. “You need to differentiate between risk and volatility. You see volatility, not risk here.”

The US election is a key event. It is a horse race, and a lot of things can happen, feels Damani. But if Donald Trump beats the odds and comes to power, then markets will react badly, beginning with the collapse in Mexican peso. If Hillary Clinton wins the polls, then it will be status quo.
