Compared to the sell-off in the US markets last Friday, the correction in the Indian market yesterday was relatively mild. This reflects the resilience of the Indian market. However, it is important to appreciate the fact that valuations in India are high. Nifty trades around 20 times forward earnings. MSCI India is trading at a 100% premium to its emerging market rivals. This calls for some caution. There is a possibility of further correction in the short-term market. Financial services, capital goods, automotive, telecommunications and consumer packaged goods are strong segments attracting investment.

The bears lost momentum on testing the 17160 region triggering attempts to rise on the early lines. This ideally targets the 17800-520 region, but expect the bears to resurface as you approach 17500-520. The bearish marker can be placed at 17250, but it is performance in the 17450-520 region that will set the tone today.
