Next 2 Days Will Be Difficult To Make Profit, Says Vishwas Agarwal
Indian equities opened weak today, (Dec 23), following disappointing worldwide shores prior to December F&O expiry.
Auto, consumer goods and metal stocks traded flat.
BSE Midcap and Smallcap index fell 0.35% and 0.20% respectively.
Asian stocks also dropped down as a smaller-than-forecast interest rate cut in China and an economic growth report in New Zealand fanned worries that a global recession is becoming deeper.
The 30-share index, BSE Sensex opened the day at 9,821.57, down 106.78 points, after a fall of 1.70% on the previous working day.
The Sensex, on Monday (Dec 22), marked its closure after losing 171.56 points, whereas the NSE Nifty declined by 38.20 points.

While commenting on the market, stock analyst Vishwas Agarwal said, “Profit booking is seen in the market due to F&O expiry, plus rising tension between India and Pakistan over terror issues has led investors to book profit rather than take any long position, as a war could be harmful for economy of both countries. But I believe that market won`t go down drastically- it will rebound in January F&O.”
Mr. Agarwal also said that it will be difficult to make money on the next two days (Tuesday and Wednesday).
“So be in low profile and wait for opportunity to renter. I would suggest to buy Bank of Baroda, Bank of India, HDIL, Suzlon, PNB and ABB in dips with some proper stop-loss for next 15 days,” he advised.
