    After opening at a new all-time high of 13,216, Nifty is hovering around the 13,140 mark. Nifty’s rally was backed by high FPI inflows, positive news on the vaccine front and increasing retail investor participation. Global equities were positive after Britain announced it became the first country to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine against COVID-19. Also hopes for US stimulus are keeping the market sentiments intact. After more than two years, the Nifty Midcap100 index has crossed the 20,000 level and it has been a remarkable move from recent lows. While, the momentum continues to remain strong, 19,750 would be an important support which investors should keep an eye on and manage positions accordingly.
