Udayan Mukherjee says market to see only tactical rallies unless earnings improve##Udayan Mukherjee says market to see only tactical rallies unless earnings improve


A rally in stock markets last week was driven by global sentiment as there were no domestic cues to support the market other than the expected announcement of measures for the real estate sector, said Udayan Mukherjee. Markets will remain range-bound amid surging oil prices and ahead of the US Federal Reserve's monetary policy decision this week, he added.

"So given the global mood is not terribly sour yet, we might just continue to drift in this 10,700-11,200 kind of zone. But if the hope over the weekend was that the real estate package etc will push us beyond that upper end of that trading range of 11,200, that may have to wait and we will get pushed back within that 400-500 points kind of a range,” he said.
