MARKET WRAP: Sensex sheds 71 pts; Infy slips 4.4%, RIL falls 2.5% post AGM

MARKET COMMENT Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking Nifty traded range bound and settled almost unchanged in absence of any fresh trigger. Participants were in the profit taking mood at the start of trade. However, an up move in select index majors, mainly from FMCG and banking, capped downside as trade progressed.    Participants, mainly traders, are in the fix due to excessive volatility and selling pressure in broader market while Nifty has been showing resilience. Trade selection becomes difficult in such scenario. We feel the upcoming earnings season would ease the pressure and also provide the needed trigger for next directional move. Meanwhile, we advise keeping limited exposure mainly in index majors and quality midcap stocks
