Nifty is trading in very narrow range since last 5-6 weeks but we have seen some positive stock specific movement in last one month.

Last week, the result season started with muted numbers. Indusind Bank, Bandhan Bank, TCS and Infosys posted their Q3FY19 numbers. All
four companies posted below expectation numbers, but this is just the beginning of the season. Most of the companies will declare their numbers

between January 20 and February 10.


Most of the fund managers and analysts are talking about midcaps. But, we have been talking about midcaps for the last two months and we are quite confident that fundamentally strong midcap and small cap stocks can delivered double digit returns in next 3-5 months. But, stock selection will be very important.

There are bunch of companies who will announce their results such as KPIT, Trident, HT Media, AU BANK, Atul, ICICIGI, HDFC Bank, etc. For

next week, Nifty has strong support at 10,730-10,650 levels and resistance at 10,870-10,940 levels.
