Approach to banking stocks may be somewhat tentative: Dr C K Narayan

Since the market is not in its prime when it comes to spotting a trend, the best approach to go for is to have a mix of longs and shorts, Chart Advise founder Dr C K Narayan told ET Now during an interaction. Edited excerpts:

ET Now: Does it look like the pressure on PSBs could continue next week as well or do you think ther

Dr C K Narayan: Well, I think there was a mild attempt to rebound already. That is because the long weekend would have prompted short sellers to lock in some profit, take it home and perhaps spend it across this long weekend, too.

For that, a little bit of support from the market should be sufficient.
