    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    We believe that the Indian markets would continue to track global developments w.r.t Coronavirus and could exhibit volatility in the near term. The announcement of Q3FY20 GDP data on Friday will be a key domestic cue and will be actively watched by the market participants. In these uncertain times following stock specific approach would be more prudent.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Domestic & Global equity market got impacted by weak expiry of monthly F&O and selling in the global market due to the spread of new coronavirus cases in some parts of the world. Till last week the market was of the view that coronavirus is going to have only a minimum impact on global economy as situation in China was being contained. But an increase in the number of new cases is changing the view and there are fears of some slowdown in the economy.

    Deepak Jasani, Head Retail Research, HDFC Securities:

    Technically, with the Nifty moving down further, traders will need to watch if the Nifty can now hold above the next major supports at 11,579-11,614; else the current downtrend is likely to continue. Any pullback rallies could find resistances at 11,695-11,779.
