    Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:

    Nifty has showed a good strength in the month of April as it expired with gains of 14 percent and formed a bullish candle after hitting its 100 MA on monthly chart. Now index has good resistance near 10k mark so one can initiate profit booking around 10k mark. If Nifty managed to break 10k decisively then we may see current move to extend further, good support for Nifty is coming near 9600-9500 zone. Until holding above said levels index has buy on dip structure intact.

    Nifty Bank closed at 21534 with gains of more than 12 percent on monthly chart, support for Nifty Bank is coming near 21100-20800 zone and resistance is coming near 22000-22300 zone.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services


    Market ended positive for the fourth day in a row, on the back of positive signals from global markets. Successful trials of a Covid-19 vaccine helped the global markets gain some positivity. Domestically, indications of easing of lockdown measures and stimulus hopes helped drive the markets.

    Being F&O expiry day today, short covering and roll-overs in the market also contributed to the gains. Financials and IT contributed most to the gains in the benchmark indices alongwith Reliance, ahead of its results.

    Next week outlook will be driven by the way forward for resumption of business after lockdown, announcement of any stimulus package and stock specific earnings results.

    Sanjeev Zarbade, VP PCG Research, Kotak Securities:

    Most major global markets have rallied in the current week as several countries have started to talk about lifting the lockdown. It seems the worst is over so far as far as the spread of the pandemic is concerned. Reports of encouraging results about Gilead’s drug in treating Covid-19 as well as starting of human trials on Covid 19 vaccine also fuelled the rally. Improving market sentiments lifted crude oil prices.

    After the strong rally from the lows of March 2020, risk of a correction has increased in the near term; though probability of the market going deep below the 30000 level looks remote. Investors should keep this in mind and trade accordingly. Yet, investment from a medium to long term perspective looks workable as we expect corporate profits to show good growth in FY22.
