Analysts believe that the market will take cues from movement in Adani stocks amid Hindenburg allegations and
“Today the market will be completely dominated by the movements in Adani stocks. The statement from Adani Enterprises that the FPO is on schedule and that there is no change in the price band is hugely important. This can be interpreted as a reflection of the confidence of the management in the success of the FPO,” said V K Vijayakumar, chief investment strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
“It is important to note that during the last 3 days while Nifty declined by 3.2%, Bank Nifty declined by 6.3% on concerns of the Adani crisis impacting the banks. The correction in high quality private sector banks is a buying opportunity. Investors may wait for the dust to settle,” Vijayakumar added.
