    Expert's Take on Market

    "Domestic indices traded higher with optimism underpinned by dovish RBI policy and mixed global cues due to US jobs data awaited later in the day. RBI kept rates unchanged and maintained the status quo on accommodative stance. FY22 GDP growth was maintained at 9.5% while trimming inflation worries by lowering CPI forecast from 5.7% to 5.3%, provided the push to the market. On the sectoral front, the IT sector was in focus ahead of the result releases of sectoral majors while realty and FMCG succumbed to profit booking," said  Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

    Expert's Take on AMFI Data

    "Interest to allocate in Indian equities continue, net sales is broadly positive in all categories of funds essentially in Multicap and Flexicap Funds. In addition to regular flows and incremental SIP inflows, NFO’s also have been creating a lot of interest amongst investors. It is also very encouraging to see much better inflows in dynamic/balance advantage funds as in current times of rising markets and premium valuations, this category of funds will allow to control risk of investors much more efficiently," said Akhil Chaturvedi, Head of Sales & Distribution at Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company.

    "Index closed a week at 17895 with gains of two percent on a weekly basis and formed a bullish candle on the weekly chart. Index has reached to strong hurdle zone of 17950 where we can see sort of double top formation & if index managed to cross above said levels decisively then we may see good move towards 18300-18500 zone in near term but if failed then we may see some more consolidation in the overall range of 17300-18000 zone, immediate support is coming near 17820-17730 zone," said Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.

    Expert's View on RBI Policy

    "As expected, the RBI kept key policy interest rates unchanged for an eight straight meeting (last cut was in the month of May 2020) in order to support economic recovery.  Also MPC has reiterated an accommodative stance to support sufficient liquidity and financial stability," said Nimish Shah, CIO – Listed investments at Waterfield Advisors.

    "Interest rates are under pressure globally and we have seen the 10-year US treasury yield jump up to 1.58% from the lows of 1.18% seen in Aug’21. This along with global tapering and stubborn inflation in India due to factors like crude prices, is likely to put pressure on interest rates. We expect the entire yield curve to move up gradually and the steepness in the yield curve to continue for some more time," he added.

    Expert's View on MF Flow

    "The relaxation in the lockdown norms across the country, resumption of business activities and vaccination drive gaining pace has improved growth outlook. This has aided the markets to touch new all-time highs on expectation of economic recovery, thereby side-lining the risk of a possible third wave of the pandemic. This secular bull run in the markets and high returns have attracted several investors towards equity mutual fund, as a means, to participate and benefit from this growth in the equity markets. Relatively lower returns from traditional investments have also made equity mutual funds attractive investment destination for investors. Additionally, with the SIP book growing consistently, equity oriented funds have been receiving robust flows," said Himanshu Srivastava, Associate Director – Manager Research at Morningstar India.

    Technical View on Market

    "The market witnessed some volatile movements and an attempt to hold the level around the Nifty50 Index level of 17,900. The market is going to be crucial for the short-term scenario to sustain above the 17,770-17,800 Nifty50 Index support zone. If the market is able to sustain the level of 17,770-17,800, It can witness higher levels of 18,000. The momentum indicators like RSI and MACD indicating positive momentum is likely to continue," said Ashis Biswas, Head of Technical Research at CapitalVia Global Research.
