    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Markets started the new expiry with modest gains and made a new record high as well. After witnessing a gap-up opening, the index traded in a narrow band but managed to settle around the day’s high. It was the healthy buying in heavyweights like Reliance and HDFC Bank which helped the index to maintain the positive bias.  

    Amongst the benchmark indices, the Nifty ended with gains of 0.6% at 15,436 levels. On the flip side, sectors such as healthcare and consumer durables traded lackluster. The broader markets underperformed and ended lower in the range of 0.1-0.5%.   
    Markets reclaimed the record high after three months and the Reliance's performance was the major highlight today. Going ahead, we expect this trend to continue with intermediate corrective phases. Traders should align their positions in line with the move and avoid contrarian trades.

    Rahul Gupta, Head Of Research- Currency, Emkay Global Financial Services:

    Next week is going to be very eventful for USDINR, with RBI MPC outcome and the US NFP data. RBI MPC will continue to maintain its accommodative stance but the focus will be on the outlook of the central bank over the spill-over effect of the second wave of COVID-19 on the economic growth. So we can expect some volatility in spot ahead of that. Technically, there has been a sharp fall in USDINR spot and we expect the new trading range to be 72-73.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

    Constant fall in US dollar is driving the Indian equity market in addition to the falling infection rate. The sustenance of the rally is supported by the recent improvement in foreign investment with the stabilizing US yield and drop in the dollar index. INR is regularly appreciating against USD.

    The markets have been in a jubilant mood since the start of trade today. It has closed well above the resistance of 15300 and should be headed higher to levels closer to 15600. As long as 15000 holds, traders can utilize any dip to accumulate long positions for higher targets.

    Jateen Trivedi, Senior Research Analyst at LKP Securities:

    Rupee traded weak on the back of subdued moves in the dollar index. Fed stance of dovish outlook keeps dollar weakness going. Higher crude prices kept the rupee rise at check around 72.50. With the capital market at lifetime highs, funds inflows keep rupee strength. Going ahead rupee can be seen in range 72.40-72.80.

    S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP securities:

    Markets remained in the green as investors basked in the glory of the $3-trillion market cap which was achieved with ease thanks to the broad-based rally across market capitalisation. With FIIs being net sellers during April & May the appetite shown by domestic investors is getting reflected in the buoyancy across the market breadth. 

    Today's trade was led by the big boys - Reliance & HDFC twins as we did see profit-taking across midcaps post-RBI comments on the consequences of liquidity infusion during the Pandemic.
