    Technical View

    "Nifty index opened gap down below 14,800 on account of weak global cues but since its opening levels, bulls have taken charge to take the index towards 14,900. It formed a Bullish candle on daily scale but negated its formation of higher lows of the last five sessions and closed the day with loss of around 90 points. Now, it has to hold above 14,800 zones to witness an upmove towards 15,000 and 15,050 while on the downside support exists at 14,700 and 14,600 zones," Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal said.

    Expert's Take on MF Flow

    "The net inflows into equity funds have continued in April which is very encouraging. Flows slowed down a bit compared to March largely because of the disruption caused by the second wave of the pandemic. However, the SIP numbers have remained robust and the addition of SIP folios also have been very healthy. Given the expensive valuations, we have been recommending asset allocation funds such as Balanced Advantage Funds (BAF) for investors. This category has also seen meaningful inflows. We expect the flows to pick up pace once the pandemic is brought under control through increased levels of vaccination and other measures," said G Pradeepkumar, CEO at Union AMC.
