    Manav Chopra, CMT, Head Research - Equity, Indiabulls Ventures:

    Bullish activity continues if not on the index than in broader markets as mid and small caps witness strong run. Nifty consolidated while the broader markets were buoyant. We have been bullish on mid and small caps space for a while which has played out well and is likely to gain further steam. Near term support for the Nifty is placed at 12,200 zone. We expect nifty to hit our target zone of 12,400-12,450.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services:

    The main indices are seeing a mild pause in the trajectory after the solid performance in the last one-month. It may wait and analyse the upcoming key companies Q3 results. Globally, the completion of the US-China deal and sudden jump in consumer inflation and NPAs in India are impacting the main indices. But broad market is still very solid in expectation of re-rate in valuation supported by revamp in earnings growth.

    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Nifty traded dull and settled almost on the flat note, after oscillating in a range. However, the continued buoyancy in the midcap and smallcap saved the day for the traders. Mostly sectoral indices traded in tandem with the benchmark index and ended unchanged.
    We’re seeing rotational buying on the sectoral front which is helping the index to inch gradually higher. However, the actual gains are in the broader markets where we’ve seen a noticeable recovery in the last two months or so. We believe domestic factors viz. earnings and budget expectations will continue to dictate the market trend in the near future, so keep a close eye on announcements for cues.
