November 1 turned out to be a day of some more consolidation on the D-Street. However, benchmark indices managed to close above crucial support levels for the week.

Muted auto sales data, as well as GST data, along with disappointing core sector data weighed on sentiment, and investors preferred to book profits at higher levels. But, the momentum is likely to continue in the near-term, and investors should use the dip to buy.

The rupee appreciated by 11 paise to close at 70.81 against the US dollar on Friday due to fag-end selling of the greenback by banks and importers amid persistent foreign fund inflows.
