  • On the global front, Asian markets ended higher in trades on Thursday on hopes that the weak global economic data will encourage major central banks to keep or deepen their monetary stimulus improving risk sentiment.

  • Better way to trade is to just keep trailing the market, says Ashwani Gujral. You would not like to trail in a weak sideways kind of choppy market, but in a trending market, the view has to be that we try to push the trend, he says. If you can take 50-70 point correction, then holding on to your long positions should not be such a big problem, adds Gujral.

  • Chances of a pullback likely on Nifty in near-term, says Mitesh Thacker. There's a good chance that you might see a drop to about levels of 5820-5800 where it would be more better at trade, Thacker said.
