    Shrikant Chouhan, Senior Vice-President, Equity Technical Research, Kotak Securities:
    The market remained highly volatile on the back of positive to mixed global and domestic cues. Initially, announcement of the Bharat Bond ETF has put some pressure on the market, however, in the second half of the trading session, positive news flow on the trade tariff front from US has helped the market to close in positive territory. Except Infrastructure and Reality, all other sectors closed in the green. The best and unique part of the day was the bullishness in technology as well as in Financials, which on most occasions move in opposite directions. Technically, it's a positive bullish closing for the market and this should lift the market back to 12150 in the near term.

    Sahaj Agrawal, Head of Research- Derivatives at Kotak Securities:
    Nifty remains in an uptrend with strong support of 11,700 and one can expect 12,500 in the medium term. In the near term we expect the index to trade in the range of 11,900-12,200 with buying on dips advisable. Banking stocks trade with a positive bias while metals stocks continue to consolidate after recent gains. Frontline IT stocks trade near long term support levels.

    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Markets are largely mirroring the world indices in absence of any major local trigger. And now all eyes are on the RBI and we feel that markets have already discounted the 25 bps point cut and the commentary on future trajectory would be more critical.
    Since we’re trading at record levels, the risk is certainly high thus traders should prefer hedged positions instead of outrights. Needless to say, a decline below 11,900 would pave the way for further profit taking in the Nifty. In case of surge, 12,200-12,300 zone would act as a hurdle.

    Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas:

    The Nifty witnessed a volatile session today with sharp swings in either direction. The index ultimately posted a positive daily close after three consecutive negative sessions. The broader market indices too got some relief today after getting battered for the last couple of sessions. Nevertheless, the market in general is not yet out of the woods. The minor degree correction that started from the recent high of 12158 seems to be getting subdivided into lower degree waves. This means that further fall towards the junction of the 40 DEMA & the daily lower Bollinger Band i.e. 11820 - 11800 cannot be ruled out before Nifty resumes the larger uptrend. Hence sell on rise would continue to be our preferred strategy with immediate hurdle zone at 12050-12070.
