After an extremely fickle last hour, the Nifty closed the day at 5,368 gaining 33 points while the Sensex too put on 84 points to shut shop at 17,707.
The market managed to recover all of yesterday's losses, supported by technology, metals, capital goods stocks, and Reliance and SBI. However, experts remain cautious on the market now after its stunning performance since day one of 2012.
Aditya Agarwal, Senior Derivative Analyst at Way to Wealth said one should wait to make fresh long positions at these levels. According to him, 5400-5450 band is crucial resistance for the Nifty as there has been call writing at 5400 and 5500 level.
Alok Sama, president and founder, Baer Capital Partners feels that it is good time to book profits. He says that the markets are seeing a liquidity-driven rally and he expects this rally to fade going ahead. "One needs to be cautious on the market now," Sama says.
