We have seen benchmark indices trading rangebound in the festival week, but midcaps and smallcaps have shown strength during this truncated week. Strong earnings, sharp fall in crude oil prices and appreciation in the rupee are now positive factors for the bulls.

Total equity inflows rose 13 percent over the previous month to Rs 12,622 crore in October. Systematic investment plan (SIP) book touched Rs 8,000 crore this month, which is a positive sign.

This week, the Nifty has strong support at 10,500-10,460 levels and resistance at 10,700-10,750 levels. Our past recommendations -- L&T Finance Holdings, Bharat Electronics, Atul, Amarjothi Spinning Mills, Power Finance Corporation -- have given fantastic returns in the very short term.
