The technicals shows no signs of a bear phase . The sensex is placed well above the 50 and 100 DMA. The current consolidation in the markets would increase the probability of the sensex making a new high.

The daring Duo is Bullish, talks of 10% growth rate

The daring duo of Indian economy , Prime minister Manmohan singh and Finance Minister P.Chidambaram set a bullish tone the Indian economy’s growth prospects addressing a conference on Infrastructure Sector.Mr. singh said that India's economy, Asia's fourth largest, can grow at an annual pace of 10 percent ,tackling poverty,if nearly $320 billion is spent fixing creaky infrastructure. The government wants sustained 8-10 percent growth to significantly cut poverty in a country with 1.1 billion people.
Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said the economy recorded growth in the July-September quarter of over 8 percent from a year earlier, mainly due to strong consumer demand that boosted the services and manufacturing sectors.

To Conclude
Well, the week ahead would be a mix of volatility. The quarterly results would act as a immediate triggers for the markets. The markets have built up a expectation of positive news flow from the Q2 results and India Inc. and any disappointment (chances less likely) may trigger a downside. If everything goes well, the probability of sensex touching new highs in coming days is more.

Hi Abhishek,

The run up may be attributed to speculative buying. I am not aware of any specific reasons for a run up in these stocks. But I agree with you that recently listed IPO's have shown this trend.
