Insight Online News

From Advisory Desk 12th March 2024
Market Outlook: US equity market closed mixed on Monday ahead of the release of key inflation data tonight, which could effect rate-cut expectations. However, futures are trading positively following Oracle’s robust earnings and guidance. Asian markets have started on a mixed note, while the GIFT Nifty is indicating a flat opening. Yesterday, our market witnessed a profit booking session due to weak global cues and after the SEBI chief once again raised concerns over valuations of Mid & Small caps. Overall, the positive uptrend remains intact and buy on dips. Today being the Finnifty’s weekly expiry, we expect the range to be 20600/20700 -21000/21100. India’s CPI and IIP data will be released today post market hours.

Actionable: Buy Oil India, HCL Tech, ICICI Pru.
