Jayant Manglik, president, retail distribution, Religare Securities Ltd said, “Nifty recovered marginally on Friday and settled above 8600 amid mixed domestic and global cues. After Thursday’s knee-jerk reaction, participants were in cautious mood but hopes of rate cut by the RBI in upcoming policy meet, eased some pressure and triggered recovery in rate sensitive pack. Also, report that Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has decided to invest 10% of its annual incremental deposits or an estimated Rs 13,000 crore in the current fiscal in equity exchange traded funds (ETFs), aided to the recovery. Interestingly, noticeable rebound was witnessed in Midcap and Smallcap space despite flat benchmark index, showing participants’ risk appetite and buying interest at lower levels.”
