Nifty 50: Will there be a pullback now?

In our previous Nifty 50 index update, we had built a case for a short-term bounce in the Nifty 50 index that could extend up to 16,800-16,850 range. This price action unfolded in line with expectations and the index moved well past the target zone. The question now is, will this rally continue or is there still a risk of one more leg of downside heading back to the early March lows.

Wide glass windows, glass cubicle bathrooms and the big sunroof in SUVs are the fast-catching luxury trends. Simply put, glass is a proxy to economic growth aided by per-capita income growth, urbanisation and premiumisation with increasing use cases.
