Analyst view   Vinod Nair of Geojit Financial Services says: Better Q1 results and short covering ahead of F&O expiry took the market to new heights by gaining investors confidence.

COMMENT: Kunj Bansal - Executive Director & CIO – Equity , Centrum Wealth Management    Now that the psychological number is achieved, the markets sustaining at these levels would create a solid base the next leg higher. There are many moving parts specially in the near term as it is an action packed week, with all eyes on the global Central bank commentary and the expiry coming up which would be the first test.    If one looks at the bigger picture, results season has not given too many positive surprises, so the markets should consolidate around this number. The risks are ever present but manifest in different ways, one will only know the reason for things turning with the benefit of hindsight. Hence, while it’s the index at five figure number, it is a virtuous cycle which follows in terms of new investors getting carried away and getting exuberant, this is the only thing one should watch for

COMMENT: Motilal Oswal, CMD, Motilal Oswal Financial Services   From a short-term perspective, markets appear to be overheated and trading rich. A correction cannot be ruled out at this juncture. That said, this correction will not be very deep as a huge pool of cash is waiting to be deployed in the markets at lower levels. From a long-term perspective, this correction will be more like a running one and the markets will take it in stride to resume its upward journey, targeting new highs eventually
