The Indian markets are facing continuous outflow from FIIs, however, the recent decline in the dollar index would help to reverse the same.

Since the beginning of the week, the market is gaining on the theme of economic recovery and a sharp decline in the covid19 active cases. The market players have chosen financials to bet on and the Bank-Nifty jumped to 34000 without any major efforts. We are also witnessing the buying in Commodities and Auto stocks. The Nifty/Sensex has surpassed the levels of 14970 and 15045 (49700/50000) with broad-based participation.
- Share Market LIVE: Sensex tops 61300, at day’s high, Nifty reclaims 18250; Tech Mahindra jumps over 6%
- Sensex snaps 4-day losing streak, Bank Nifty posts record closing; fresh up move in Nifty possible above 18300
- ICICI Bank, SBI, Axis Bank shares hit new-52-week highs on BSE; 42 stocks at 52-week lows
The Nifty/Sensex closed above 14900/49500 on Monday and above 15100/50100 in the previous session. It is definitely positive for the market. We may see consolidation between the levels of 15000/49800 and 15200/50400 as the markets are over stretched in the short term. However, in the near term, it is well poised for hitting 15450/52500 levels, which is the all-time highest level on the indices, and 15600/53000 that could be the final target of the current up-move. Keep a final stop loss at 14850/49300 for initiating any long trade on the indices. Along with financials, particular attention should be paid to capital goods, infrastructure, and commodity-related stocks. The Indian markets are facing continuous outflow from FIIs, however, the recent decline in the dollar index would help to reverse the same. The dollar index is comfortably trading below the levels of 90 and technically we might see the levels of 87.50.
