Meanwhile, the Indian equity market is showing an "unbreakbale nature" amid the second COVID-19 wave and the benchmark Sensex might well hit the 58,500 level by March next year, according to global wealth management major Julius Baer.

Emphasising that India is a "very strong market", Julius Baer MD and Head (Research) Mark Matthews also said companies' earnings would ultimately drive share prices.

Notwithstanding the second COVID-19 wave that has also impacted economic activities, the domestic equity market has been surging in recent months, with key indices -- Sensex and Nifty -- touching fresh lifetime highs.
