Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 managed to finish a volatile session in the green, halting a losing streak that stretched to six back-to-back sessions and dragged the headline indices more than five percent each. Gains in financial and auto stocks pushed the headline indices higher, though losses in IT shares limited the upside. Broader markets managed stronger gains than the benchmark indices, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 indices rising more than one percent each. Investors awaited the last leg of the earnings season for direction.

Prakash Diwan is avoiding BFSI space 

Market expert Prakash Diwan is staying away from the BFSI space. He believes the biggest and well capitalised banks will be the first to see growth impetus within the basket.

"I would stay away from a small set of BFSI players for the time being because of the way they could kind of get impacted negatively if things don't go as planned. It's more from a risk reward view. The risk is slightly higher than the reward at this point. Otherwise, no taking away the fact that numbers have been fairly decent, but most of that has been priced in," he adds.

Higher G-Sec yields were one of worries in PSU banking: ICICI Securities' Amit Gupta 

Amit Gupta, VP and Fund Manager-PMS at ICICI Securities, is of the view that one of the worries in the PSU banking pack was higher yields of government securities. "We need to understand how much is discounted in the bond yields – if you see the difference between the repo rate and the 10-year G-Sec, it generally used to be 150 basis points. Now you have the repo around 4.4 percent and the G-Sec yield around 7.4 percent, so a difference of 300 basis points. This is where 150 basis points of rate hike bond yields are already factoring in. This is what market also understands because the SBI earnings have been good,” he says.

15,950-16,000 important levels to watch out for in Nifty50: Prakash Gaba

Prakash Gaba of prakashgaba.com tells CNBC-TV18 that an important level to watch out for in his view is the 15,950-16,000 band, where he sees strong resistance. A cross above that on Monday will be very good for the market in his view.

"Then we can see even 16,100-16,200 levels. So far, the market looks okay because I don't see weakness, but some profit looking or short covering can happen... On the Bank Nifty, looks like 33,500 should be possible and we will see 34,000 possibly in a day or two," he said.

He expects an upmove in the banking index that could help the 50-scrip benchmark.

Gaba recommends buying Apollo Tyres for a target of Rs 215 with a stop loss at Rs 208, and selling Bharti Airtel for a target of Rs 680 with a stop loss at Rs 690.
