Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart, said, "The recent deal on the US debt ceiling had already been anticipated and taken into account by the market, resulting in the absence of a significant downturn and a rally despite the prevailing chaos surrounding the issue. In addition to this, there has been a stream of positive news, including robust GDP data, the resolution of the US debt ceiling, a decline in commodity prices, and increased Foreign Institutional Investor (FII) activity."

Meena also said while these factors contribute to an overall bullish outlook for our market, it was important to consider the possibility of profit booking in the near term.
