Investors are advised to follow buy on dips strategy until the market is trading in this range.” However, Pandey reminded stock market investors that now things are going well. Dow rallied more than 1000 points in last four trading sessions.”Pandey went on to add that the US President Donald Trump is solving few issues before his Re-Election rallies citing, “Maybe Trump is a genius, after all. What if he finally gets the steep Fed rate cuts he has been demanding? After that, he ends the trade wars, tariffs go to zero, and the stock market surges to new highs — just in time for the 2020 election!” Prakash Pandey went on to add further that the DIIs are getting the cue from the FII and hence it’s the global growth that would give a cue to the domestic investors and hence it would be correct if we say that √≠mprovement in domestic and global growth holds key to further movement of the Dalal Street.”
