If the momentum continues, the index is all set to climb Mount 12K and hit a target around 12,400-12,700 in the next 12 months, according to experts.
Nifty50 has rallied about 13 percent so far in FY19 and if experts are to be believed, it is on track to hit fresh record highs in FY20. The optimism in market lately has been on the back of hopes of a stable government post elections, strong buying by foreign investors, rate cut by Reserve Bank of India and stability in rupee-dollar pair.
Historically, we have seen a decent rally in the market before and after the general elections. This year also, Nifty has formed a new base in the 10,600 – 11,000 zone and has been witnessing pre-election rally in the last few weeks.
If the momentum in market continues, Nifty could touch 12,000 and hit a target around 12,400-12,700 in the next 12 months, according to experts.
“If we go by the principle of ‘history repeats itself’; then this general election year (FY20) can be a good year for investors as we may see a good rally in the coming few months. FIIs are aggressively putting money into the Indian market and cumulatively bought equities worth Rs 41,900 crore in last 23 sessions,” Jay Kumar Purohit, Technical & Derivatives Analyst at Centrum Broking told Moneycontrol.
“Looking at the chart structure of Nifty and its heavyweight constituents, we are expecting the Nifty to rally towards 12,400 – 12,700 levels in the coming months. Thus, we advise long-term traders to use any decline towards 11,000 as a buying opportunity,” he said.
Investors should invest funds in tranches as it is going to be a volatile year for Indian equities.
