V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, said with S&P 500 closing above 5000 for the first time, support from the mother market augurs well for the bulls. But the bears are likely to take cues from the rising US bond yields (10-year yield is at 4.17%) which normally triggers big selling from FIIs. However, the frothy valuations of the broader market are a matter of concern. From the long-term perspective, safety is in large-caps, he said.
