    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:
     
    Markets started the week on robust note and made a new record high, taking cues from the global indices. The reaction was mainly in response to the news of Joe Biden winning the US presidential elections. Besides, noticeable buying in index majors especially from the banking pack further boosted the sentiment. Consequently, the Nifty index closed at 12,461 levels, up by 1.6%. The broader markets too remained buoyant and ended in range of 0.6-1%. All the sectoral indices witnessed healthy buying interest wherein banks, telecom and metals were the top gainers.
     
    Markets have seen decent run up and reached to the record highs as well, driven by better than expected earnings so far, supportive global cues and improving macro data. Further, the on-going corporate earnings, domestic economic data (IIP and CPI) and Bihar election outcome will be in focus. Meanwhile, markets would continue to mirror global indices. We suggest maintaining “buy on dips” approach and keeping extra caution in selection of stocks.

    G Pradeepkumar CEO Union AMC:

    The continued rally in equity markets combined with the expectation of volatility around US elections, appear to have led some investors to book profits in equity and move to short term debt funds. Many of them may come back to equity funds if there is a correction. The SIP book has shown a growth over the previous month which is very encouraging from a retail flow perspective.

    S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP Securities:

    Bulls went on a rampage today at the start of the week which promises everything right from Bihar Election results to Factory Output. A 200 point salute to the Nifty also brought about positive vibes across a host of Small & Midcap stocks in the broader markets".

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Firm global cues and a clear majority to favorite democrats party in the US election took main benchmark indices to all time high. The rally in the domestic market was also led by Banking and Finance stocks on improved business outlook post Q2 results, end to moratorium and bounce back of economic activities. Broader market has shown under performance compared to headline peers as investors feel safer chasing heavyweights during high market levels. 

    We expect more stimulus measures are required to boost the economy and announcements regarding the same from the government is expected in the near future that can further accelerate our domestic market.
