Asia's markets displayed a mixed performance after a modest advance on Wall Street, maintaining momentum for a fourth straight weekly gain.
Due to the holidays in Japan and the US, the markets were closed. However, Chinese developers experienced a surge in activity due to indications of greater support from the government.
In the United States, the market experienced a 0.5 percent increase due to positive consumer sentiment data, a decrease in jobless data, and impressive quarterly earnings from Nvidia, a chip maker.
European stocks slightly increased, remaining at a two-month peak, thanks to a surge in sectors related to commodities.
Aggarwal said, "India VIX was down by 4.60 per cent from 11.86 to 11.31 levels. Volatility slightly cooled off and comforted the bulls but momentum was clearly missing. We expect IT, Banking, Pharma, FMCG, Petrochemicals, Metals sector to do good. Bullish bias risk defined strategies are best for traders. Expect higher targets to hit on Nifty".
Despite the positive developments, Cipla experienced a setback when its stock plummeted by 8 percent following reports that the US health regulator expressed concerns regarding manufacturing errors at its Pithampur facility in Madhya Pradesh.
The India VIX volatility index experienced a 4.60 percent decline, dropping from 11.86 to 11.31 levels. This suggests a small decrease in volatility. However, despite this, the market did not show much momentum.
Analysts predict that industries such as information technology, banking, pharmaceuticals, fast-moving consumer goods, petrochemicals, and metals will have a strong performance. They suggest that traders should use bullish bias risk-defined strategies, as they anticipate the Nifty index to reach higher targets.
