2) Creating a model portfolio with broad-based weights on outstanding amounts
3) Portfolio construction using model portfolio as the guiding framework
4) Portfolio optimization with “LimitedACTIV” methodology (within predefined, back tested variance limits)
5) Crisil will periodically review the investable universe, portfolio and performance
Stock Markets Today:
Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking says that After a tepid opening, the bulls were back in charge led by positive global cues and healthy buying interest in banking stocks. The Nifty index ended with healthy gains of 0.6% at 14,563 levels. The broader markets too ended with decent gains of 0.4% and 0.3% respectively. On the sector front, Telecom, Auto and Oil & Gas were the top gainers whereas Consumer Durables and Healthcare ended with losses.
Markets will react to the macroeconomic data (IIP & CPI) in early trade on Wednesday. Further, earnings announcements from select IT majors such as Infosys and Wipro would also remain on the participants’ radar. Religare Broking advise participants to align their positions according to the trend but strictly avoid overleveraging at current levels.
