Kedar Kadam, Director – Listed Investments, Waterfield Advisors. “In our view, the FII selloff is primarily driven by Rising US Treasury yields & Strengthening USD. Going ahead, we expect some profit booking to emerge soon. Some risks to this market rally include inflation, erratic weather conditions, rising crude prices, slowing global growth & resultant impact on domestic exports, escalation in geopolitical tensions.”

However, analysts are bullish on long-term prospects of Indian equities.

Sandip Raichura – CEO of Retail Broking and Distribution & Director, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd, said “20k on the Nifty may just be a number but its history, nevertheless.
