MARKET COMMENT Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking The bulls were back in business, as the equity benchmark indices managed to end Wednesday’s session on a positive note, led by some short covering. The Nifty index ended on a firm note gaining 1.5% at 10,460 levels. The broader market indices ‘BSE Midcap & Smallcap’ outperformed the benchmark, registering healthy gains of 4.2% and 3.4%, respectively. Barring IT, which closed in red, all the other sectoral indices ended on a positive note with Auto, banks and Consumer Durables being the top gainers. Globally, European markets were trading in red while Asian markets ended on a mixed note.    We maintain our cautious view on the Indian markets in the near term, as volatility is likely to remain high. Focus of market participants would shift to corporate earnings season and the domestic macro data like IIP and CPI / WPI inflation which are scheduled over next 1-2 weeks, as it would dictate further course of markets. Also movement of currency, crude oil prices and global developments would be actively tracked by investors. Under uncertain market conditions, traders & investors should be selective in stock picking
