TODAY, on 26th November. Market, need to wait for Prime Minister “incentives for businessmen” announcement. But on the other hand, FBR already has given some relief via amending four budgetary measures. In this scenario, market looks to enjoy above 24,000 level today.

After volatile movement on yesterday, along with breaking 24,000 level twice in 10 days, it initially needs to get some selling activities. As Market is still at good response with Fundamental, Economical, and Technical grounds, would being a reason for some good news in upcoming weeks, along with minor corrections.

As per my analysis, market needs to get initially some slightly Positive movement, but will get some good support later on. The market is expected to be on bullish trend and move between -65 points to +352points. Today, as per Prime Minister Announcement, makes the market to ride on bullish trend.
