  • The markets may slip lower in the next 3-6 months, says Nilesh Shah of Envision Capital on ET Now. He believes that the best time for banks may be over. The stock market is uncomfortable with the Food Security Bill, he adds.

  • We expect the downtrend in the market to continue for the next 2-3 months, says Sandeep Bhardwaj of Derivium Tradition on NDTV Profit. We have a negative outlook on the Nifty, he adds.

  • This rally will not sustain and as long as we stay below 4630, strength will not return to this market, says Pradeep Surekha, technical analyst, on Zee Business. Once the Nifty crosses 4630 then it could move up to 4730, he adds. He advises staying away from banks and capital goods.

  • As long as the market stays below 4729 on a weekly basis, stay on the short side, says Ashwani Gujral, technical analyst, on ET Now.
