Let us take a quick glance at what happened on the Dalal Street today.

It was quite a volatile day for the market, where the Sensex gyrated 721 points, only to close with marginal losses. Once again, an attempt by the bears to take control over the market failed, as the bulls displayed their strength noticeably.

Some analysts said they haven’t seen such optimism in the market in almost a decade.

At close, Sensex was down 25 points and was still 500 points away from the 50,000 mark. Nifty made sure it ends above 14,650.

M&M jumped 6 per cent, while SBI climbed 5 per cent. Bharti Airtel which was up 6 per cent in morning trade, ended just 2 per cent higher. The Bajaj twins closed up to 3 per cent lower, while the HDFC duo shed up to 2.8 per cent.

We caught up with Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research at HDFC Securities, to know his views on the market.
