According to analysts, with the big event behind - the market may get into a consolidation mode as the corporate earnings and economic data will be closely watched by the investors.

Technical View
"Investors and traders must wait for correction to enter in the market as going forward the Sensex and Nifty may need to consolidate at lower levels. In general the market are expected to follow the global market sentiments for next couple of days. Nifty and Sensex may correct about 5 per cent in next few days. Investors must focus on the quality of Mid-Caps in Infra, financial and banking sectors in any correction in the markets," said Abhijeet Bajpai, Co-founder & CEO, Avighna Trades.

Analysts are expecting the market to correct by 5 per cent for stocks to look attractive for investors to come in to buy.

Infrastructure, construction and financials along with the selected Mid-Cap and Small-Cap are likely to be in focus.

Market View
"The market has seen a new all-time high of 12,041 but ended the day on the back of profit booking. This is what we have been indicating in the last few days. The volatility was very much expanded, derivatives were pointing to a range of 12,100 - 11,500, said Mustafa Nadeem, CEO, Epic Research.

Derivatives data pointed to a range bound action and that is what we have seen with the Nifty not able to surpass 12,100 while it may continue to take support around 11,500. We have seen both calls and puts being hammered today amid declining volatility.

"Coming days, we believe there may be some sideways movement between 11,450- 11,800. Though one should still utilise the dips for a potential short term upside to 11,900. But its time to be aware that there is a selling pressure around 12,000,”Nadeem further said.
