Deepak Jasani, head – retail research, HDFC Securities on Sensex touching 32,000

The rise in the markets has been aided by the risk-on sentiments prevailing across the globe. Valuations look stretched going by historical parameters; however some more upside is possible in the coming few weeks.
 
Retail investors may use this rise to re-weight their broad asset allocation, relook at the stocks that they own and clean/shrink their bulging portfolios of stocks. They may avoid chasing stocks that are at steep valuations but keep hunting for opportunities in the small/midcap space where promoters show genuine interest in improving shareholder value by restructuring their businesses/companies. For investors who are under-invested in stocks, SIPs in select equity stocks may be looked at.

12:36 PM Market check: Sensex, Nifty extended gains in the noon session with Nifty firmly above 9,850 and Sensex aboce 32,00 led by gains in FMCG, banking and fin services sector.

ITC, ICICI Bank, L&T, HDFC and Axis Bank gained the most on BSE Sensex while ONGC, Tata Motors, M&M and Coal India shed the most on the index.

South Korea climbed 1.1% to a record after its central bank kept policy super easy to support consumer spending.

10:25 AM We think RBI will maintain their neutral stance even while potentially cutting the repo rate by 25bps on 2 August.

However, caution is advised, and any pull back below 9820 should be seen as sign for volatility, but downside prospects very limited, says Anand James of Geojit

9:22 AM On a seasonally adjusted basis, we estimate that momentum in ‘core core’ inflation moderated in June and our trimmed mean measure also eased to 3.5% y-o-y from 3.8% in May. Discounts by retailers (clothing & footwear, household goods) and a sharp moderation in education price inflation (tuition fees) were responsible, confirming a more broad-based moderation in prices: Sonal Varma of Nomura

9:21 AM We continue to believe that there is a bubble in many newly listed stocks and also in some of the mid and small cap stocks. Already some newly listed IPOs, which crashed 35% to 54% (examples Satin Creditcare, Dr.Lal PathLabs, etc). Still many investors are ignoring the valuation comfort completely: G Chokkalingam, founder, Equinomics Research

Nifty Outlook from Sacchitanand Uttekar of Tradebulls Securities
 
"Nifty is now in close proximity towards the upper end of the channel and only a sustained close above 9,840 for couple of days would accelerate the momentum else expect the index to witness a time-wise correction before the next up move begins towards 10,013. On the flipside expect 9,700-9,680 to act as an immediate support zone where longs should be added with an expectation of the secular up move to remain intact."

8:53 AM Asian shares scaled a two-year top on Thursday as investors wagered policy tightening in the United States would be glacial at best, lifting Wall Street to record peaks and lowering bond yields almost everywhere after US Fed Chair Janet Yellen's testimony.

Yellen's speech was a nod to Wall Street as the Fed signalled it will gradually tighten policy and gradually unwind its massive balance sheet, it said. Investors cheered Yellen's dovish tone, alleviating some concerns over the recent dip in inflation.
