Rahul Mishra, AVP (Derivatives), Emkay Global Financial Services:
I am still of the view that there is weakness in the market and the level near 9500 are unlikely to sustain. YES BANK is going out of Derivative segment and no more contracts will be available from 29th May onwards.

Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:
In a continuation to positive expectations visible yesterday, benchmark indices gained by around 1.9%, led by the Auto and Banking index. A huge EU stimulus plan provided a boost to European shares while Asian shares were affected by the US-China diplomatic issues. Indian markets are banking on continued resumption of economic activities, inspite of still high number of new infections.
Further stimulus measures are also expected to boost demand in the economy and help the most impacted sectors to recover. Market is rising on the back of expectations while there has been little change in ground realities.

Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments:
The markets ended the monthly expiry of May on a positive note, not giving up any of its gains which is a good indication of what lies ahead. Every dip now becomes an opportunity to buy or go long. We should expect levels closer to 9700 during the course of the June expiry. As long as we can stay above the levels of 9000, we are in a medium term bull market.
