    Sahaj Agrawal, Kotak Securities:

    After a strong rally seen in the recent past Nifty currently is in consolidation phase. Tech parameters suggest possibility of extended consolidation before the up move resumes. We continue to believe the bias remains positive and suggest buying on dips. 

    Meaningful support on the downside is seen at 11,200-11,300; expect volatility to remain high in the near term. On the higher side we would expect 12,300-12,500 on Nifty. Banking is expected to witness some profit booking while metals and select auto stocks trade with a positive bias.

    India markets have rallied led by dovish global central bank sentiments. That coupled with consistent FII flows and expectations of current political dispensation making a comeback post elections is driving the markets higher. However, valuations now look fair and one needs to be stock specific and selective from hereon. We prefer banks, discretionary consumption plays and select Industrials.

    Motilal Oswal has downgraded Reliance Industries to neutral due to a limited upside in the stock. It has set Rs 1,457 as the target. The brokerage said it sees a weakness in refining and petrochem business ahead.  RIL's stock price has almost tripled over the last five years, outperforming the Nifty by 122 percent on a cumulative basis, driven by the strengthening refining/petrochem businesses and the significant build-up in its retail and telecom segments.

    "The stock now trades closer to our fair value. Moreover, we expect the core business to face headwinds in 2019. While telecom and retail remain in a significant build-up mode, we have already factored this in our estimates. As there is limited upside from here, we downgrade the stock from Buy to Neutral," said Motilal Oswal in a report.

    B Gopkumar, ED & CEO, Reliance Securities: Markets have seen a pre-election rally. Nifty scaled new all-time high on back of improved optimism following sustain FIIs inflow. Stable rupee and expectation of an interest rates cut have also helped the rise in the market. 

    However, from here earnings will be a key factor as we get into the results season. Healthy corporate earnings could push the market higher, but disappointments will pose a challenge. We remain positive on markets in long-term, but one can expect some profit booking from 12,000 level and near-term volatility cannot be ruled out with respect to events like credit policy, March ended earnings performance and elections in the coming months. Meanwhile, any decline near to 11,200 levels would be a good opportunity to create a long position.
