  • The top Nifty gainers today were Kotak Mahindra Bank, Sun Pharma, Ambuja Cements and Jindal Steel and prime losers included DLF, BPCL, L& T and IDFC.

  • As the Nifty has breached the level of 5350, further downtrend may come in the markets, says Gaurang Shah of Geojit BNP Paribas on CNBC Awaaz. In this kind of markets the strategy should be sell on rally, he adds.

  • This market is going to be a value pick market, says Deven Choksey of KR Choksey Securities on ET Now. Broader market is not going to perform well but some of the picks from that category would certainly be good bets.
