The report added, "A technical view of the recent breakout of Indian markets to new highs is that of a signal that the long-term uptrend off the 2003 low is resuming.

This implies an upside target for the BSE Sensex of 39,707 (+75 per cent) through the next 12 to 24 months," CLSA said in its India strategy report authored by analysts Mahesh Nandurkar, Laurence Balanco and Abhinav Sinha.

At current levels (21,483-22,023), however, the Sensex could see a temporary dip of three-five per cent, an attractive buying opportunity.”
