“The markets have successfully closed above the 17700 level which was acting as a resistance for 2-3 trading sessions. We should now aim higher for 18050 and then 18200. Good support for the markets has been created around the 17400 level. As long as that does not break, the Nifty is bullish and dips can be utilized to accumulate long positions.”

Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services-
“Domestic equities opened on a weak note as investors turned cautious due to a weak closing of the US market and rising crude oil price. However, the upbeat mood of the European markets which rebounded after the US tech-based sell-off helped the Indian market to regain momentum. Also, the rout of Chinese economy led by power shortage provided a positive surprise to few sectors in the Indian market.”
Arijit Malakar, Head Research (Retail) of Ashika Stock Broking –
“Indian markets on Tuesday ended in positive led by Energy, IT, oil & gas and power indices. The rising crude oil and gas prices have been positive for the upstream oil & gas companies. Reliance Industries, ONGC and Oil India will benefit most from ongoing higher energy prices. Today, Reliance Industries scaled at a record high with market cap crosses Rs 17.50 lakh crore and that drove the NIFTY higher as it has higher weightage in the index. China’s power crisis, which affected nearly 40% of their industries, could prove to be helpful for Indian companies, especially for metal, chemical and capital goods sectors as these sectors are likely to witness higher demand from export markets.”
