The second quarter results have started and we believe markets have seen decent recovery from the lower range. We expect some consolidation at current levels over the next few weeks and should provide individual stock specific movement with respect to the results announcements.
Bank Nifty can gain positive momentum once it crosses the 200-day average placed at 28,800 levels. Nifty500 has made higher bottoms on monthly charts in range of 8,650-8800 levels which indicates the broader markets are in a sweet spot and any incremental positive news flow from the domestic or global markets would lead the momentum rolling in midcaps and smallcaps.
We believe the investors should look at the Nifty Next 50 stocks, as the index is trading down by 3.3 percent YTD compared to 5.5 percent YTD positive for Nifty50. Among sectors we prefer to initiate longs in auto, banking and metal space for reasonable upside as the risk reward remains favourable.
