Technical view: “The markets achieved their target of 11100 upon opening itself! We should now be headed towards the levels of 11500 – this may not be a one way move, but ideally that should be the direction of this market. Hence a “buy on dips” strategy on the Nifty can be implemented. Every fall would be a chance to enter a buy trade,” said Manish Hathiramani, Index Trader and Technical Analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.
