    Ajit Mishra Vice President, Research, Religare Broking:

    The Indian equity benchmark indices rebounded in Wednesday’s session and ended positive amid supportive global cues. The Nifty index opened in the green and traded with positive bias throughout the session, touching an intra-day high of 11,078, before closing up 1% at 11,029 levels. Amongst the broader market indices, BSE Midcap and Smallcap ended higher by 0.9% and 0.5%, respectively. Barring Healthcare, which witnessed selling pressure, all the other sectoral indices ended in the green with Metals, Banks, Capital Goods and Oil & Gas being the top gainers, up 1-2.7%.
    We expect the markets to remain volatile in the near term and maintain our cautious stance. Further, in the absence of any fresh domestic triggers as well as end of earnings season, investors will take cues from global developments. Market participants would keep a watch on movement of crude oil price and rupee/dollar. Besides positive progress on US-China trade talks would boost investor’s sentiments. Given the uncertainty, we advise investors and traders to maintain stock specific approach and avoid risky trades.
