We have seen a rally on Nifty and Sensex in all working days of the past week and during November F&O series but midcaps and smallcaps still lag
in the market.
We believe midcaps and smallcaps will also see a rally after December 11, once results of state elections are announced.
We have seen good results across the sectors in the first half of the financial year that proves our country is on a solid growth trajectory.
Smallcaps and midcaps are still down 36 percent and 20 percent respectively from their highs. The losses will, however, narrow down in the coming months.
There are many important events in the coming week which will drive the market. RBI Monetary policy statement will be announced on December 5 and OPEC will meet on December 6. Exit polls of five state elections will be declared on December 7.
For this week, the Nifty has strong support at 10,825-10,745 and resistance at 10,945-11,035.
