REMAIN LONG IN NIFTY WITH SL OF 10700. TARGET 10950

While the Nifty closed just 5 points down at 10,802, the gloom was high as the BJP gave up its intraday majority mark with just 104 leads at the time of market close. The PSU bank index and the real estate index were the worst decliners.

Though the BJP dramatically improved its performance from the last elections, reports that the Congress was ready to provide support to the JDS, the indices slipped.

It’s an event that is now out of the way. The will now be more reactive to the international cues.

Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices have been significantly underperforming the Benchmark indices and due to that breadth of the overall market have been weak for last two weeks.

In the derivatives, we have seen long positions being built in the Nifty and Bank Nifty Futures’ during last few days. Moreover FIIs’ also created long positions in the Index & Stock Futures’ during the last week. Amongst the Options, Puts have been written at 10700-10800 level.
