  • The market was supported by gains in bluechips, traders said, adding that receding fears of the impact of a delayed monsoon on prices and strong global cues after upbeat US data and easing oil prices boosted market sentiments. Blaming hoarders for recent spurt in food prices, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said there was no need for panic as country has enough food stocks and promised stern action against black marketeers.

  • Markets looking at 7840-7850 as a first target, says Yogesh Mehta of Motilal Oswal Securities. The euphoria is very much there and everyone is on a buoyancy ride. Retail participation and FII participation are increasing. But ahead of the Budget now it seems that there is a cautious mood. Probably the market is looking at, at least 7840-7850 as a first target. Everything is priced in now, he says.
