“Domestic markets impacted as RBI Governor cautioned depositors for chasing high returns amid greater risk. Traders also showed cautiousness with the reports that the government is unlikely to announce capital infusion for public sector banks (PSBs) in the upcoming Budget. Our research suggests that 58,000 will act as an important support level in the market. We can expect the Sensex to trade in the range of 58,000-59,200,” said Gaurav Garg, head of research, Capitalvia Global Research.
