Market at pre-open: Benchmark indices are trading positive in the pre-opening session with Nifty around 8900.
At 09:01 hrs IST, the Sensex is up 855.49 points or 2.86% at 30802.26, and the Nifty up 257.95 points or 2.99% at 8899.40.
Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities:
Nifty arrested at 8750, however, dismissal of the same would result in one more spike towards 8900 levels. The strategy should be to buy on dips till the market doesn’t break the level of 8300. On a quarterly basis, after 12 years the market closed sharply lower and the lowest of the series 7500 would act as a crucial support for the market.
Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services:
Market has cheered this fiscal package and now expect relief measures for Corporates, Banks, SMEs, start-ups, etc. It would continue to be highly volatile and would track global markets along with the trend in coronavirus cases globally and locally.
