Sumit Bilgaiyan of Equity99 strongly believes that this Diwali will be 'discount wali' but the next one will be 'dhamake wali hogi'
Finally we have seen a smart recovery in the market from the lower levels that we predicted last week. The Nifty rose 523 points on a weekly basis led by banking stocks. Positive global markets, strong earnings, sharp fall in crude oil prices and appreciation in the rupee boosted sentiment last week.
For this week, the Nifty has strong support at 10,440-10,350 levels and resistance at 10,700-10,750 levels. A number of companies will announce their results this week. These include: State Bank of India, Cipla, GAIL India, Power Grid Corporation of India, Bosch and Titan Company.
There many important events also this week which will drive the market. US sanctions against Iran come into effect from November 4. US mid-term elections will be held on November 6. Outcome of the Federal Open Markets Committee meeting will emerge on November 8.
We strongly believe that this Diwali will be 'discount wali' but the next one will be 'dhamake wali hogi'.
