PRANAV SANGHAVI says, Good afternoon everyone. Regret the slight delay. Let's begin the chat.

Sunil asked, Hi Pranav. A recent CLSA survey (unpublished) expects markets to touch 40000 mark in the coming 6-7 years. Whats your take on this? Do you think it is possible?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, If the corporates keep performing as they are and no major external factors affect the markets, yes it could touch that figure. But a singular rise without corrections is not healthy.

navjot asked, Will the market touch 13000 mark this month
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, The markets will rally for the the Diwali and September quarter results. But the results won't justify a 13,000 mark according to me.

guru asked, Hi Pranav, Greetings for the day! Please let me know whether it's yet safe to trade in derivatives in Indian markets considering that no long term positions could be taken as of now.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Hi Guru. Same to you. Yes derivatives as an instrument can yeild better returns than equity if you invest carefully. As a thumb rule, the derivative volumes are more than 4 times that of equity volumes in most developed markets.
