According to Likhita Chepa, Senior Research Analyst at CapitalVia Global Research: “On Monday, the markets hit new highs in early trading, powered by strong macro indicators and vaccine advances in India. For the first time ever, the Sensex crossed the 48,000-mark. But soon after hitting the new peaks market went off the day’s high.”

“Asian stocks have been mixed today as vaccine optimism has outweighed concern about growing numbers of infections globally. For the Nifty, 14100 might indicate a resistance. We suggest booking profits at current juncture and trail thereon. At 13,900, we have strong support.”
