Market viewpoint

Posted by :- Rupa Roy
The Nifty has done well to rise on five of the last six trading sessions. But for it to cross the Rubicon of 11,496 it will need a solid reason to do so. The Nifty may have to wait for those reasons. While the index has gone up, the market breadth has remained weak. For the past 12 sessions on the trot, the declines have exceeded advances. With Credit growth down and the Bank Nifty, a pale shadow of itself, the Nifty is not getting the support from its popular subIndex.
