  • The Budget was received well by the market and it appears to have made some kind of a bottom, says Fayeza Hafiza of Intime Spectrum Securities on NDTV Profit. The next target on the Nifty is likely to be 5750-5800, she adds.

  • Concerns regarding inflation and political situation are receding on the margin, says Parul Saini of RBS on CNBC TV18. He thinks that however, high crude oil prices are a key risk to India's current account and fiscal deficit, as well as investor sentiment. We maintain our cautious view and would be buyers of the markets at 10% below current levels, he adds.

  • As long as the market stays above 5200 then we could test 5800, says Rakesh Gandhi of LKP Shares on NDTV Profit. By next week we could move up to 5700 and then 5800 at which level the market will face resistance, he adds.
