Importantly, global indices are attempting to reclaim some lost glory after multiple sessions of bearishness. Crude attempted to recover during the day, but fell during the last hour of trade.

Technical View:

Technical experts said that rollovers from December to January series were inline were expectation. However, short rollovers were seen in metal, auto, cement and pharma sector and that will put pressure on market in short term.

A minor pullback is expected in these sectors in coming week, however these short covering pullbacks will be short term in nature and fresh shorts can be initiated at higher levels in these sectors whereas long rollovers were seen in Psu banking, nbfc, capital goods and technology sector and one can expect positive move in coming weeks in them.
