Liquidity driven rally:
Indian market broke out of its narrow range on Monday, largely led by short covering from foreign institutional investors after SEBI restricted the use of P-notes to hedging and earnings.
In the case where the underlying derivatives position are not for purpose of hedging the equity shares, the issuing FPI has to liquidate such ODIs latest by the date of maturity or by December 31, 2020, whichever is earlier.
The optimism is also around June quarter earnings which some experts feel that it could be better than expectations.
“Such buoyancy in the market ahead of the earnings season indicates that markets are in the strong hand and participants are anticipating much higher levels ahead,” Adrian Mowat, MD & Chief EM Strategist, JP Morgan in an interview with CNBC-TV18.
The way markets have moved in the last couple of sessions, it looks like the next crucial resistance level of 10,000 could well come this month. However, some bit of consolidation cannot be ruled out which could give investors a buying opportunity to dip into quality stocks.
Jayant Manglik, President, Retail Distribution, Religare Securities Ltd said that our positional target of 10,000 in Nifty is intact but finding a trade at current level requires extra efforts.
“For fresh trades, we suggest waiting for some consolidation or dip in stocks and preferring hedged positions,” he said.
