Yesterday the rally in the markets continued. Nifty shot up 100 points, but the banknifty did not perform despite hdfcbank rallying. HDFC twins and bajaj twins are rallying on the front. Bajaj finance again shot up after it rallied 5% the day before yesterday. Now nifty is at an all-time high.

Yesterday there was a fed met and they kept the rates unchanged and they told that they will be continuing the bond-buying at the current rate. Fed has raised its economic outlook and forecasts the unemployment rate falling in 2021
