Nifty ends above 10,300, up 2% for week, Sensex gains 216 pts; metals shine

Market rundown with Jayant Manglik, President, Retail Distribution, Religare Securities   Markets opened on robust note and managed to end with decent gains, tracking firm local cues. Sentiments boosted mainly in reaction to the exit polls indicating easy win for BJP, in both Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh state elections. Almost all the sectoral indices participated in the move led by metal, realty and auto pack. Sharp decline in the volatility index also helped in smoothen participants' nerves.   With all eyes on actual state elections outcome, we expect fireworks in early trades on Monday i.e. on Dec 18. Indications are still favorable but caution is advisable in stock selection, citing excessive volatility. We suggest not jumping into the trade and waiting for the markets to stabilize.
