  • The downside now appears capped and in the short term, the market may not go below 5250-5230, says Mitesh Thacker, technical analyst, on CNBC TV18. The market is likely to be in a trading range of 5200 and 5600 for the next 3-4 days, he adds.

  • A spike in global crude prices due to social unrest in West Asia and North Africa has compounded India's macro problems of a large triple deficit and high inflation, says Sanjeev Prasad of Kotak Institutional Equities on CNBC TV18. With no clarity on the way and timing of the resolution of the situation in the region, it is difficult to build a strong case for India, he adds.
