V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services:
The economy is facing a serious challenge and the RBI has been leading from the front with quick responses through rate cuts, injecting liquidity through OMOs, LTROs and a variety of innovative tools to manage and ensure financial stability. In this hour of economic emergency the MPC has to be in place to formulate policy. This delay could have been avoided.

Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:
Indian benchmark indices gained strength throughout the day, helped by gains in Banking and financial stocks. Global cues were also positive following positive industrial profits data from China, setting aside concerns about the increasing virus infections and related impact.
Indian markets were also banking on further stimulus and other measures by the government to boost the economy. Traders limit overnight positions and keep booking profits while investors follow an accumulation strategy.

S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP Securities:
Key Indices ended high as Bulls led the charge backed by Financials and well supported by Auto & Pharma. Expectations of a Stimulus coupled with Capital Support to state run banks fuelled the rally in late afternoon trade. The postponement of the SC verdict by a couple of days provided a breather to the Bulls as Large Caps led the charge.

Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments:
The markets kept the upward momentum on for the entire day. However, the level to watch out for is 11300-11350. We need to get past and close above that price zone. That would signal that an intermediate bottom has been made and we have entered into an uptrend. Until then, there is always a possibility of a U-turn from the current levels and the Nifty might attempt to go and test the 10750 level.
