Sensex today live: Sensex surges 600 points on gains in HUL, Asian Paints
Even after the recent correction that took Nifty below the 17,000 mark on Wednesday, Zerodha and True Beacon co-founder Nikhil Kamath is of the belief that the stock market is expensive and there is room for correction. Amid the ongoing exodus by foreign investors, the trader-turned-broker said it’s a good thing to follow the adage of ‘sell in May and go away’. “I think that’s (‘Sell in May and go away’) generally a good thing to do. I am a proponent of that, even when the market is around 17,000. There is a room for correction. Markets are expensive. So that might not be the worst idea in the world,” Kamath said when asked to comment on whether he might see another month of selling at least in the cash market.
