    Markets extended yesterday’s rebound and gained nearly a percent on the F&O expiry day. Upbeat global cues combined with strong traction in banking majors triggered a strong start. However, profit-taking at the higher levels capped upside as the day progressed. Finally, the Nifty index ended with healthy gains of 0.8% to close at 15,097 levels.

    Amongst the sectors, except FMCG and Capital Goods, all the other indices ended with gains wherein Oil & Gas, Metals and Realty were the top gainers. The broader markets continued to witness healthy buying interest as both midcap and smallcap ended higher by 1.1% and 1.5%.

    Global cues and upcoming macroeconomic data i.e. GDP data will dictate the trend from hereon. Mostly sectoral indices trading in the tandem with benchmark however we feel banking has the potential to help the index inch further higher. Amid all, we feel it’s prudent to wait for further clarity and limit naked leveraged positions.

    Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:

    One more positive session and index managed to close at 15,093 with gains of nearly one percent & formed a gravestone Doji kind of candle pattern on the daily chart. On the immediate basis, the index has good support near the 15k mark if the index managed to sustain above the 15k mark then-current positive move can extend further towards the 15,200-15,250 zone which are the hurdle zone on the higher side and if fails to sustain then strong profit booking can be a witness.

    February 24 was a tough day for traders and so for the investors after NSE witnessed a technical glitch because of which trading had to be halted and there was a high degree of uncertainty among investors.

    FII data showed a net buying of Rs 28,739 crores. However, this is because a bulk deal of approximately Rs 30,000 crore in Bosch has been included in this. If we remove this from the FII data, then FIIs were net sellers with around Rs 1000 crore.

    As of now, FIIs are looking more confident and we might see some more buying from FIIs. Not to forget, Centre has lifted the restrictions on grant of transaction rights for government businesses to private banks as the Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman announced on Wednesday, which also added some buying momentum in selective private banks which also added fuel to the party.

    Domestic market added strength on yesterday’s rally supported by positive F&O monthly roll-over and robust global market. Small and mid-cap stocks continued its outperformance over the benchmark indices. World equity market rebound after getting assurance from central banks, importantly FED, that good liquidity will be maintained, in spite of being under pressure of rising inflation, since the economy is still well below the pre-covid standpoint.
