Gaurav Garg, Head of Research, CapitalVia Global Research Limited noted that investors in Asian markets were poised for gains on Wednesday after Wall Street indexes rose on the back of US Treasury Secretary nominee Janet Yellen’s push for a sizable fiscal relief package in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Quarterly results of 36 companies are due for today which can result in higher volatility in the second half, Bajaj Finance, Bajaj Finserv and HDFC Asset Management Company being in a major focus,” he said.

Jay Purohit, Technical & Derivatives Analyst with MOFSL said: “The advance decline ratio is tilted towards the bulls and heavyweights are providing strength to the market. Bank Nifty opened positive but saw a slight intraday dip. Overall sentiment of the market remains in the bullish mood.”
