    Santosh Meena, Senior Analyst, TradingBells:

    Indian equity market continuing its bull run by hitting a fresh all-time high for three consecutive sessions. We can say that it is a pre-budget rally where global tailwind is also supporting the current bull run. Global markets are in risk-on mood after escalation between US-Iran cooled off where they were cheerful today ahead of the signing of the US-China trade deal. The US lifts currency manipulator tag on China currency manipulator which led to positive sentiments across the global market today. Indian market ignored the sharp rise in inflation and moved higher though Banknifty is underperforming. The undertone of the market is very strong where Midcap and Smallcap space is doing very well. IndusInd bank witnessed sell-off after initial rally post its Q3 results because prima facie numbers look good but higher slippages and slowest loan growth were the cause of concern.

    Technically, Nifty is in important supply zone of 12350-12400 but it is not showing any signs of weakness where if it manages to take out this resistance zone then we can expect a rally towards 12545/12700 levels in coming days while in the downside 12300 will act as an immediate support level; below this 20-DMA of 12205 will be next important support.

    Bulls pushed the index higher in the second half of session after consolidating for the most part of the session. Market breadth was strong as participation in mid & small caps was visible and held it steady throughout. FMCG & Metal index were leading the index. Nifty is inching towards our target zone of 12,400-12,450. We continue to have positive view on the markets and especially mid & smallcap sectors along with metal sector. Traders and investors should continue to maintain long positions and buy on dips.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services:
    Market is moving ahead ignoring the sudden jump in CPI with an optimistic view on the budget and earnings growth visible in the on-going Q3 results. The month-on-month bounce in inflation is expected to settle since a large part of the gains are one-time in nature, as indicated in the WPI which is still sober in-line with the slow activities of the economy.

    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    The Indian equity indices recorded fourth straight session of gains despite weak domestic cues. After trading in a narrow range following weak inflation numbers, the indices hit fresh highs in the last hour of trade before closing at 12,362 (+0.3%). The up-move was largely led by positive global cues over increasing optimism towards US-China trade truce. Amongst the broader markets, BSE Midcap and Smallcap continued to outperform and ended with gains of 0.7-0.8%. All the sectoral indices except Banking (sharp fall in Yes bank and IndusInd Bank) ended in the green with FMCG, Metal and IT leading the pack of gainers.
    Despite weak macro data (inflation) investors are pinning hopes on earnings recovery and sops from the union budget. However, we remain cautious on the markets given that the indices are at its peak levels. While the global cues too look positive currently, progress of earnings season may continue to induce stock specific volatility in the markets.
