  • Ashwani Gujral said today: Ceasefires happen where there is war. There was only drama in Ukraine in the last two months. So, I do not know what ceasefire we are talking about. The markets will keep on going up because they knew finally this will happen. Now consolidation will happen at 8100, 8200, 8500, 8800, that is part of the game. You should hang on to your long positions because right now, there is not enough evidence that this current rally is ending. As I have been saying that I am not very impressed with this rally, 30-40 points hardly during the day, he added.

  • See a case for a big upside in market, says Hemang Jani of Sharekhan. Things are looking good. A lot of things are going for us. The risk appetite seems to be coming back both at the investor level as well as the corporate level. The extent of correction and the timing are always going to be tricky. I would not try to venture into that part, but we think that there is a case for a substantial up move from the current levels, he says.

  • Indian markets will enter bubble zone once Nifty breaches 8,500-9,000 say Analysts. When the market rallies ahead of fundamentals, the scenario is often related to that of a 'bubble'. So, is there a bubble building in the Indian stock markets? Well, not at present, but if the Nifty rallies past 9000 in 2014, then there could be a possibility. Consider this, in the last 16 days we have seen 5 gap-up openings on the index, which have already pushed benchmark indices to record highs. The rally may continue for another 3-4 months, but beyond 9200 is the level when we will enter the bubble zone, they say.
