If your view is more than 2 years than hold for 2100-2400 targets. The current market situation is highly volatile.

Again proved-
Many new experts are giving a super listing day target like 1600, 1700, 1800, 1850, 2000....
But our old expert Aniketiaf sir told-

Personally I feel, it will act like BSE after listening.
Exectly it behaved the same like Bse listing.
