Investing is an on-going exercise and not a momentary one. Bear markets are nicest times to build a portfolio. The bear market may last for 6 months or for a year or two also but if one takes a longer-term view (around 3-5 years) and starts investing in bear market, one will be rewarded fairly when the market takes a U-turn.

Banks, Realty and Metals were top gainers in a session which was characterized by consistent buying all day through. Fall in crude prices gave further boost to buying.

Outlook for 31 July, 2008:-
Sensex showed strength and did cross 14210 yesterday. Today being expiry day, the volatility would be high and we are now up against pretty good resistance at 14610. Closing past this level may mean that we can cross the previous highs around 15130 in August.
Bata, Rolta, TCS, Crompton Greaves, Great Offshore are scrips which one can look for buying for next month or two. Intraday dips would provide good opportunities for buying.
Today Nifty may remain between 4355 and 4270 in the first half. Break of any level should give move towards that direction. Caution is advised only below 4235.
