Benchmarks moved higher for eighth straight session led by gains in banking stocks ahead of the Reserve Bank of Indias monetary policy review. Profit booking emerged in IT stocks after a rally in previous session.

One only hopes that the RBI doesnt spoil the party as it takes up a mid-quarter review of its monetary policy today. Expectations are that it will most probably go ahead with another hike before considering a pause.

The start will be flat to slightly lower on indecisive global cues but the finish may be different if bulls have their way. Looks like the liquidity support from FIIs is negating uncertainty on the external front. Stronger-than-expected July IIP data set off the current frenzy. A moderating inflation added to the euphoria.

A less hawkish RBI commentary may come more than handy. Global factors are important as well but of late India has shown a tendency to overlook bad overseas events.

FII inflows are robust and are unlikely to see any material reversal. All eyes will be on the next batch of quarterly results next month, said IIFL report.
