The NSE Nifty hit the 10,000 points mark for the first time ever as buying frenzy in select stocks continued.

One stock that has led the rally this time is heavyweight Reliance Industries, which has pushed the indices, after reporting a superb set of quarterly numbers. Today's gainers in trade were also HDFC Bank, which has been rising ever since it reported a good set of numbers.
IT stocks have also supported the markets and pushed the indices towards the 10,000 mark in the last few days.

However, analysts say that it may now be time to exercise some caution as prices look overstretched. This ia lergely because there are some doubts on corporate earnings and also credit growth.
