— ET Now (@ETNOWlive) 1659324877000The 9% rally in the Nifty in July is in sync with the 9% rally in the S&P 500. The pull back in the US and other developed markets was facilitated by strong job numbers and the resiliency of the US economy, raising hopes that the US could succeed. To avoid a downturn, or if a recession occurs, it will be light. The big positive for the Indian market is that after 9 months of continuous selling, FPIs are turning into buyers in July. A sharp decline in the dollar index from above 109 to below 106 now indicates that the dollar’s flight to safety is over. Nifty valuation is again going higher at 17150. Therefore, investors at higher levels have to be careful. After the expected uptick in the financial sector, now capital goods, auto especially PV & CV segment and select pharmaceuticals look interesting. High quality financial position will remain flexible.
