    Technically, on intraday charts the index has formed lower top formation which indicates further weakness from the current level. For the next few trading sessions, 15780/ 52750 could act as important resistance levels for the traders and below the same, correction wave could continue up to 15635-15600/52200-52000 levels. On the other hand, the immediate hurdle would be 15780/ 52750, and trading above the same we can expect continuation of uptrend up to 15830-15860/ 53000-53150 levels.

    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:
    Markets would first react to TCS numbers in early trade on Friday and that might set the tone for the result of the session as well. Further, demand scenario and management commentary will be crucial factors to watch in Q1FY22 results. We suggest keeping a check on naked leveraged positions and wait for clarity. Investors, on the other hand, should not read much into the intermediate correction and continue with the “buy on dips” approach in fundamentally sound counters with a long term view.

    Lakshmi Iyer, CIO (Debt) & Head Products, Kotak Mahindra Asset Management Company:

    June month saw flattish net sales in Fixed income - it being a month end and quarter end too. FMP a category continued to net sales negative as investors seem to adopt a wait and watch approach before locking in funds. Gold ETFs continued to add net positive AUMs month on month and witnessed a steady rise in folios too. Hybrid funds saw the highest net sales in June at over Rs 12,000 crore compared to April and May for Q1 of FY 22.

    Real-estate stock gaining momentum on the back of better than expected pre-sales for Q1FY22.
    Today, S&P BSE REALTY hits a high of 2890 and now is trading near the 52 weeks high of 2909.9 which was made in March 2021. We have seen some good numbers from Sobha Limited yesterday which were better than the market expectation. The company reported pre-sales growth of 40%.
    We have seen a very good 2nd half of FY21 after the sector was adversely hit by the pandemic in 2020. Several companies reported their all-time high results in Q4FY21 on the back of some effects of pent-up demand. It was expected that the demand for 2022 will strengthen this year whereas the ready to move inventory levels have hit 7 years low in Q1FY22, as customer preference has been changed to the ready property rather than the under-construction properties. We expect Residential real-estate to do well in the financial year 2022 as some early signs of the organized sector gaining the market share are encouraging. We have a buy call on Godrej property with a target price of 1700.
