Stock market weekly roundup: Benchmark indices at record high, bulls may march ahead

11:38 AM Oct 16, 2021 | Gaurav Udani

The bullish sentiment shows no sign of weakness. The markets have broken yet another all-time high and have marched upwards.

We expect this sentiment to continue into the next week.


Nifty, Bank Nifty

Both Nifty and Bank Nifty look bullish and have gone from strength to strength over the last week.


Nifty 50

Everytime an index or a stock breaks an All time high it is a sign of strength and an investor should always be long in such situations.

We believe that this bullishness will persist over the coming weeks.

Bank Nifty

Having said this, the valuations are continually being stretched and we have advised our investors to reduce overall allocation to equity.

Nifty FMCG

Nifty FMCG

The index and this sector has bounced back with a lot of strength this week and has taken support from a very crucial levels of 39,900.

We foresee bullishness in this sector going forward.

Nifty Pharma & Auto

Nifty IT

The IT sector has begun to show signs of aging momentum and we would advise investors to show caution and let the correction play out before allocating funds to this sector.

Nifty Pharma & Auto

We continue to remain bearish on both the Pharma & Auto sectors and are waiting for some momentum to believe that bullish sentiment has returned.

Derivative Outlook

Nifty current month future closed with a premium of ~20 points to its spot. Next month's future is trading at a premium of around ~50 points.

We saw open interest addition of nearly 6.87 percent in Nifty and considering the price action it clearly hints strong selling during the week.
