Some profit booking can be considered by investors with short term perspective: Analyst

Since valuations are rich from the short-term perspective some profit booking can be considered by investors who do not have a long-term time horizon, says V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

Investors should remain invested in the market and long-term investors can continue with their systematic investments. High quality financials are even now trading at fair valuations, he added.

The momentum in the market has picked up again and the undercurrent has the potential to take the benchmark indices to new highs. The global support to the bullishness is coming from the mother market US where the market is resilient supported by better-than-expected Q1 GDP growth of 2 per cent and declining weekly jobless claims, he said.

This resilience of the US economy, which was not anticipated and discounted by the market, is the strongest pillar of support for the global markets now.

In July the market trend will be influenced by auto sales numbers in June, Q1 results, progress of the monsoon and the Fed rate decision and commentary by month end.

Market valuations are rich now, and therefore, investors should exercisesomecaution, he added.
