The markets have touched an all-time high. The path for this was set in the past three months due to a sequence of events. First was the abeyance of the CBDT circular that soothed the nerves of the FIIs, followed by a prudent Budget presented by the government. As the effect of demonetisation was lower than expected, India joined the global reflation trade. Further, the comments of Donald Trump on the strength of the dollar eased the rally on the currency that favoured risk-on into Emerging Markets. The latest one was the increased political stability for the next few years, post the recent State assembly elections. On the liquidity front, the domestic liquidity has been the bedrock for the strength of equity markets. The SIP book of mutual funds is over Rs 50,000 cr. on an annual basis. Pension funds are also investing over Rs 10,000 cr.. Things are increasingly becoming positive on the economic, political and currency front. However, there could be short-term intermittent corrections due to global factors, general fatigue of markets, etc, which is good as it provides opportunity for markets to consolidate.
