    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Markets started the week on a firm note and gained nearly a percent, in continuation to the prevailing trend. After opening marginally in red, the benchmark drifted marginally lower in the early trades but healthy buying interest in select heavyweights triggered sharp recovery as the day progressed. Consequently, the Nifty settled around the day’s high to end at 15,583 levels. Amongst the sectors, metal, banking and oil & gas were the top gainers. The broader markets also ended with decent gains but underperformed the benchmark.
    Markets will react to the GDP data in early trade on Tuesday i.e. June 1. Besides, participants would keep a close watch on auto sales figures. Meanwhile, the last leg of earnings season is also expected to induce stock-specific volatility. Some states have announced relaxation in restrictions and we expect further easing in the coming weeks. Amid all this, we reiterate our bullish yet cautious stance on markets and suggest aligning the positions according to the prevailing uptrend.

    Ashis Biswas, Head of Technical Research at CapitalVia Global Research:

    The market witnessed a strong trend and an attempt to overcome the resistance level around the Nifty 50 Index level of 15600. While breakout above 15600 is the key factor from a short-term perspective, maintaining above 15250 level market to gain momentum to increase the odds for a movement until 16000. The momentum indicators like RSI and MACD to stay positive and market breadth to improve, further strengthening a short-term bullish outlook.

    Jateen Trivedi, Senior Research Analyst at LKP Securities:

    Rupee traded weak on the back of dollar strength picking up from lower levels of $89.80 to $90.10 giving some reversal formation for the dollar index. Crude prices inching close to $70 also weakens the rupee with economies opening up globally pick up in crude prices will not help the rupee on the global front, but capital market positive tone shall keep the fall in rupee at check. Going ahead rupee can be seen in range 72.40-72.75 range.

    Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments:

    We have successfully achieved the 15600 target and the index is all set to approach its next target of 15900. There could be a pause or bouts of profit booking in the interim but that should be utilized to accumulate long positions for higher targets. As long as the market closes above the 15300 level, the trend remains bullish and opportunities to buy on corrections should be maximized.

    Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities: 

    Fresh breakouts, fresh highs and fresh closing seen in today’s session as index managed to closed a day at 15575 with gains of nearly one percent and formed a bullish candle on daily chart. Index decisively closed above 15500 zone which strength the overall structure, now any dip will be again buying opportunity as long as we are sustaining above 15500 zone which is immediate and strong support on the downside followed by 15400 zone. Immediate hurdle 15600-15700 zone and fresh move can be possible if managed to trade above 15600 on the immediate basis.

    With European markets closing at record highs, we had a strong opening today and the bulls stepped up the accelerator during trade led by the oil & gas sector as heavyweight Reliance stole the show helping indices notch up a percentage gain. 

    Corporate profits to GDP ratio at a decade high last fiscal lent steam to the rally. The broader markets exhibited buoyancy with segments like NBFC's, metal stocks & pathology labs witnessing investor interest.
