    Sensex may hit 60,000 in September 2021

    We are in a roaring and classical bull market where Nifty and Sensex continue to achieve new milestones and I believe this bull run may continue for the next 2-3 years while intermediate correction or shakeout phases can't be ruled out. If we talk about the near-term outlook then bullish momentum may continue in September month where Sensex can cross the psychological mark of 60000 but I think we may see a correction after then therefore October could be a month of correction. Investors should remain invested in this bull run while they can come out of those stocks which have quality concerns. Those who are not comfortable after a massive rally can go through the SIP route to ride this bull run. Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart

    Nifty short term target 18000; Sensex eyes 60500

    Markets have made new all-time high with Sensex touching the 59000 marks for 1st time. The rally is driven by various PLI schemes introduced by the government. Further, we expect the bank to perform well as they have not yet participated in the rally, other than we don’t recommend any fresh buying at this level as markets have made a huge move in a short time. We advised investors to keep strict stop loss to their positions. Some correction is required to get a good valuation to enter fresh in the market, but scenarios which we are witnessing along with the developments from Govt. shall surely keep us in a bull run, except if any global scenario changes take place. Nifty short term target 18000 and long term target 20000. Sensex short-term target 60500 and long term target 66000: Rahul Sharma, Co-Founder, Equity99

    ITC share prize zooms 7%

    This sudden rally on the backdrop of expected improvement in business outlook of the ITC. By far the stock was lagging behind in terms of performance. So from valuation perspective, this is one of the cheaper consumption-theme stocks in FMCG space. As per information provided by company officials, they are not ruling a possibility of restructuring different business including demerger of hotel and even listing of ITC Infotech.

    This would a value unlocking of hotels and others businesses. It is expected that spin off businesses would get a better valuation going ahead. Lower lockdown impact and the faster recovery trends seen in cigarettes are positives and rising FMCG business profitability would offer incremental upside potential.

    Rupee vs US Dollar: Dips between 73.20-73.30 levels can be taken for buying

    At home, consistent FII flows on account of various IPO’s, stake sales, and diverted flows amid tighter regulations in China have kept the rupee supportive. This was clearly visible as FII continued its buying spree with close to Rs 4000 crores in the past five trading sessions. Additionally, USDINR pair could remain under pressure with upcoming inflows on account of Govt selling 5% stake in Hindustan Copper, Temasek acquiring 40% stake in Integrace for 550crs, and Quadpro ITeS Limited IPO for 6000crs. However, further drive in rupee movement will be depending on whether RBI gets lenient on rupee appreciation or cap its gains thereof. Technically, the next support for the pair is near 73.20 and 73.80 remains a strong resistance, keeping the pair consolidated between 73.20-73.80 for the near term. Thus any dips between 73.20-73.30 levels can be taken for buying and upticks above 73.70-73.80 to sell for near term exposures. Amit Pabari, managing director, CR Forex Advisors
