TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Nifty make a bottom at 7,500? This is the biggest debate on the D-Street these days. If you look at history, which is often an indicator of what lies ahead, we may not be out of the woods just yet.

The rise in COVID-19 cases, as well as delay in economic recovery, could derail the recent rally for the bulls, suggest experts.

Usually, markets tend to move in a non-linear fashion during correction periods with false signals such as bull traps and in most cases forming double bottoms, according to data collated by a report from Prabhudas Lilladher.
