The Sensex is at a kissing distance from its all-time high of 21,004. Any day, any hour, India’s bellwether index can cross that mark.

“I’d say that the concerns that most of the emerging markets and CAD-challenged countries like India faced due to the fears of tapering, have receded. This has been the reason why positive trade has sort of played out in the emerging markets over the last few weeks; and we (India) have been a beneficiary of that. Also, concerns on the debt ceiling have sort of receded ... So broadly, these have been the reasons why the emerging markets, in general India, have done particularly well,” says,Ajay Bodke Head-Investment Strategist & Advisory, Prabhudas Lilladher.
Till now, it was exclusively the fund flow from FIIs that was being credited for the market rally. But now analysts say it’s a broad-based momentum.
