A host of factors such as Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s victory in the recently concluded US Presidential election, July-September quarterly earnings, rising COVID-19 cases, oil prices, foreign fund flow, rupee trajectory and other global cues will be keenly watched. On the back of gains in global markets, Indian share market benchmarks may rise to new lifetime highs in today’s session. Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities, says that further upside is clearly visible but one needs to be stock specific until the market doesn’t cross and sustain above 12450.
