All that happened in today's trade

SI Reporter  |  New Delhi 

In a volatile trading session, the benchmark indices pared most of their intraday gains to settle flat as investors remained cautious ahead of the RBI monetary policy meeting due on Tuesday.  Although the central bank is widely expected to keep rates on hold, investors will watch out for any hints of a cut in its policy statement. Infosys remained in focus as it rallied nearly 4% and was the top gainer on Sensex after the IT giant on Saturday named Salil S Parekh, a member on the board of its global rival Capgemini, as its new chief executive officer ...

Markets end volatile day flat, Nifty dips below 10150 ahead of RBI policy

Jayant Manglik, President Retail Sales, Religare Securities   In another volatile trade, the benchmark indices hovered in a narrow range ahead of the RBI policy meet. However, the broader market indices saw selling pressure on account of profit taking, as investors remained cautious on the outcome of the monetary policy. FMCG, auto and banking indices were among the losing indices. IT index gained the most led by surge in Infosys after appointment of new CEO in the company.   The next two days would be important as RBI will announce its policy decision on December 06. We expect RBI to maintain status quo citing incoming data dependency over the next few months, as a firm inflation trajectory limits the room for further monetary easing for now. We advise traders to hedge their positions until RBI policy decision.

KNR Constructions, Sadbhav Engineering among road infra space's top picks   The infrastructure sector remains in a sweet spot looking at the government's focus on ramping up execution, increasing project awards, and construction activities, especially in the road segment. The end-October announcement on the Bharatmala programme has set the ball rolling further now. Analysts at Motilal Oswal Securities (MOSL) say that for the past three years, the government has been ironing out issues hampering the road sector. It has cleared bottlenecks through suitable policy changes and early signs of revival in the sector have been evident for some time now.

Infosys rally to be short-lived  Infosys rallied 3% to Rs 988 levels on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) in intra-day trade on Monday, after the its board appointed Salil S. Parekh as its chief executive officer and managing director (CEO & MD) for a period of five years effective January 2, 2018.   While markets gave a thumbs-up to the development, analysts say Infosys still has a long road to recovery. Parekh, they say, has his task cut out in terms of turning around the business at a time when the information technology (IT) sector is undergoing a transformation. That said, the appointment does end the market’s anxiety as to who the new CEO, but the strategies he adopts will take time to reflect on the financials, they say. READ FULL REPORT
