Markets ended almost on a flat note for the second session in a row, taking a break from the recent surge. In the absence of a major event, global signals will continue to dictate the market trend for the near future. In addition, any news of unlocking by state governments will also be closely watched as we see a sustained decline in new cases of COVID. We believe the turmoil could continue, particularly in F&O stocks, ahead of the next monthly contract expiration in May. Traders should align their positions accordingly and continue with the “buy-dip” approach.
