Nifty today: GIFT Nifty up 20 points; here’s the trading setup for today’s session

Domestic equities continued their winning streak on Monday following their global peers. In the current week, investors will keep a close watch on Fed policy outcome which will likely dictate market direction.

“We expect the overall positive momentum to continue especially in the large cap while sectoral rotation is likely to be seen in the broader market,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
