While the global market is yet to show any clear trend, recent buying into heavyweight stocks, especially from the banking package, has lifted sentiment. We could see consolidation in the index ahead, but the tone is likely to remain positive. The focus should be on identifying stocks from sectors participating in the move without losing focus on risk management, citing volatile global markets and prevailing earnings seasons.
