Market review

Ashwani Gujral is of the view that there will be no deep correction in the markets. This is a “pause” and markets are moving in a range. Each dip in the market is couple with aggressive buying. So there is nothing to suggest that markets are heading for heavy corrections.


IFCI has corrected quite a bit in the last few trading sessions and i think 90 and below is a very good price to enter this stock.

CMP: 88.65
