Jayant Manglik, President, Retail Distribution, Religare Securities    It was an eventful day as Nifty witnessed a swing of nearly 400-odd points in early trade and finally settled with gains of over half a percent. Initially, markets reacted sharply on negative side, citing unexpected lead by the Congress in Gujarat election, but not for long. The situation completely reversed in next few minutes as BJP took over Congress in both the states and progressed towards comfortable win. However, volatility remained high on stock-specific front, keeping the uneasiness intact.   Nifty has again reached closer to its record high, clearly indicates that bulls are in control. Participants will now be at ease as there's no major event ahead and global cues will take over. We suggest keeping stock-specific trading approach with bias on the positive side.

The demonizing of major structural reforms like the GST and demonetization  was squarely rejected by the electorate. This would reinforce government's resolve to roll-on reforms jaggarnaut benefiting the economy & markets. This would lead to an acceleration in foreign and domestic direct and portfolio investments.
