Market participants will keenly watch the two-day meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) beginning today. Besides, investors would also track the developments around the Covid-19 vaccine and UK vote on Brexit.

We reiterate our bullish yet cautious approach on markets and suggest accumulating quality stocks on dips. We’re still seeing several themes playing well so traders should align their positions accordingly,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd.
