MUMBAI: Indian markets opened with a gap-up and pared some of the losses made previous day. Realty, metals and IT led the upmove while FMCG remained subdued. Bounce back in global markets also helped boost sentiments. Some volatility may be expected later in the day as traders square off January F&O series.

“Expect some bounce back as markets are quite oversold in the short term. Long positions can be taken with yesterday’s low as SL. But lighten your commitments as the market moves up. Obama's statement that tax rebates given to companies that outsource need to be cut, might have some negative impact on software stocks. Tata Steel, Cairn, Cipla and Jindal Steel and Power are among the results lined up today,” said Anagram Stock Broking note.
