After six days of losses, market appears to be oversold, say analysts
This is the time for cherry picking for long-term investors. History tells us that corrections triggered by geopolitical events were opportunities to buy, he added.
NEW DELHI: After six continuous days of losses triggered by the elevated bond yields in the US and tensions in West Asia, the market appears to be oversold, says V.K. Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
Shorting in the FPI overweight segments like banking and IT have contributed significantly to the sharp market correction, he said.
The US economy’s resilience is surprising. The Q3 GDP growth at 4.9 per cent means the Fed will continue to be hawkish and the likely ‘higher for longer’ interest rate regime is negative from the stock market perspective, he added.
On the positive side, valuations in India, which were high, have now turned fair and in sectors like banking valuations are attractive. This is the time for cherry picking for long-term investors. History tells us that corrections triggered by geopolitical events were opportunities to buy, he added.
