Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services:

Markets are witnessing headwinds from fear of global recession, monetary tightening, depreciating rupee, and rise in bond yields. On positive side, fall in crude prices and value buying in beaten down counters have helped market to gain some momentum today. 

While the overall market set up continues to remain ‘Sell on rise’ – intermittent bouts of relief rally can’t be ruled out. Hence we suggest trader to remain cautious of sharp volatility and carry light positions going forward.
