Nifty outlook

"We can expect Nifty to hold the 20,700-20,800 zone in case profit-taking extends further. Focus should remain on identifying the sectors or themes that are playing out well and gradually accumulating those names on dips. Apart from banking and IT majors, we are seeing strong traction in themes like fertilizers, cement and railways just to name a few. So, align trades accordingly," said Ajit Mishra, SVP - Technical Research at Religare Broking.
