Equity barometer the Sensex opened almost 200 points higher at 60,007 on March 6 and rose nearly 700 points in morning trade, tracking positive global cues after Wall Street saw its best close in six weeks on the back of strong macroeconomic data.
The market is witnessing buying after the recent corrections which had sent it to the oversold zone.
V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services, pointed out that the trend reversal in Nifty, led by banking and metals, has more legs to go. When the market gets oversold, as happened in recent weeks, the bounce-back triggered by short-covering can be sharp, he said.
However, uncertainty still persists and it can't be said that the market will sustain the gains.
"This week may throw up some important triggers relating to US non-farm payroll data and takeaways from the Fed chief Powell’s views on the US economic outlook. Since the trends from the mother market US are crucial for global equity markets, investors have to watch out for these data," said Vijayakumar.
At the current juncture, a prudent investor should bet on quality stocks that look sound on fundamental and technical parameters.
Three analysts recommend these nine stocks to buy for the next three-four weeks. Have a look:
