  • The markets have not seen a significant low yet and is heading towards 4700-4800, says Jai Bala of on CNBC TV18. I will be watching a substantial rally to come through, when the market hits 4800 to 4700 and based on the internal structure of the market and how the market breath proceeds from that point, we will have to evaluate if these levels will hold, he adds. We are in a global bear market, it's a rehash of 2008 and it's distinctly possible that we could go much deeper than people are anticipating, he says.
