Aided by continued selling by Foreign Institutional Investors (FII), domestic markets have fallen nearly 10% since April this year. Now, after a strong correction, analysts at ICICI Direct believe that the indices could reverse the downtrend. “We feel current recovery for the Nifty may extend towards 17000. However, on the downside, early low of March levels of 15600 are expected to remain very crucial,” ICICI Direct said in a note. It added that the index is expected to see positive sentiments re-emerge once it crosses 16400. Currently, Nifty 50 is placed between 16100-16200.

Yesterday’s drama on the approach of 16400 was not surprising given the number of times rejection trades have been successful in this region. But the pull back thereof having settled above16170, a run up into the 16500-700 is still favoured. Alternatively, the inability to float above 16170, could call for consolidation or dips to 16025, but an outright collapse is among the least favoured outcomes today.

Rising demand for motor fuels and shrinking inventories ahead of the summer driving season underscored a fundamentally tight supply situation even as broader economic fears shook equity markets. However, upside was capped amid reports that the US will allow European companies still operating in Venezuela to divert more oil to the continent immediately. Read full story
Tracking overnight recovery in US markets and SGX Nifty flirting above the dotted lines, domestic indices are set to open on a firm note. Some constructive buying is quite likely on media reports that President Joe Biden has suggested that he might lift tariffs on Chinese goods. All eyes will be on the speech by Fed Chair Jerome Powell scheduled for Tuesday. The FOMC minutes later on Wednesday will provide cues on the central bank’s rate-hike path. The second reading of 1st -quarter U.S GDP will trickle out on Thursday. Last 2-days technical indicators do suggest directional strength as Nifty could aim to move higher and consolidate near the 16411-16657 hurdle zone. We believe, Nifty has hit the market bottom, and it makes sense to buy at current levels.

“Clearly, we are witnessing volatility within a broad trading range and the market has approached the higher end of the range which coincides with the ’20-day EMA’ resistance. If the index fails to surpass this hurdle, then we could see the index correct again and continue to consolidate within a broad range. Traders are advised to lighten up at the higher end and wait for a clear breakout before initiating fresh longs. With the recent pullback, the momentum readings have relieved the oversold set-ups. The intraday supports for the coming session are placed around 16130 and 16043 whereas resistances are seen around 16272 and 16358,” said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research, 5paisa.com.
US stocks ended higher on Monday as gains from banks and a rebound in market-leading tech shares supported a broad-based rally following Wall Street’s longest streak of weekly declines since the dotcom bust more than 20 years ago.
“Markets have seen a roller coaster kind of ride for the last few weeks with Nifty taking support around 15,800 levels multiple times. It bounced back sharply in the last 3 trading sessions by 640 points (4%) from a low of 15,775 on Thursday to an intraday high of 16,414 on Monday. However, absence of any follow up buying at higher levels, macro headwinds of inflation and interest rates and consistent FII selling have kept the gains in check and selling pressure re-emerging around the 16,400 mark. With most of the results already out, the market would track global developments apart from the last leg of earning season for further cues. We expect this volatility to continue this week given uncertain environment as well as monthly F&O expiry on Thursday. Even VIX at 23.4 levels is giving discomfort and suggesting elevated volatility ahead,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal.
“Technically, Nifty has formed a bearish candlestick on the daily timeframe. Bulls remain in trap as from the past week no continuous day index is closed in green. From the hourly chart, Nifty has formed a triple top pattern suggesting weakness amid coming days, however, view negated closing and sustaining above 16400 levels. Indicators such as RSI still remained in the oversold zone while MACD also suggests weakness ahead. The Nifty may find support around 16000 levels followed by 15850 while on the upside 16500 may act as an immediate hurdle. On the other hand, Bank nifty has support at 33500, while resistance is placed at 35200 levels,” said Om Mehra, Research Associate, Choice Broking.
Indian equity markets are likely to open gap-up on Tuesday amid mixed global cues. Early trends on SGX Nifty indicated a flat to positive start for benchmark indices BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty 50 as the Nifty futures were trading with a gain of 52.50 points or 0.32% at around 16,228 level on the Singaporean Exchange. “Global headwinds are keeping the markets on the edge and the last leg of earnings is further adding to the volatility. We reiterate our cautious view and suggest preferring hedged positions until we see a decisive breakout from the 15,700-16,400 range in Nifty,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking. In the previous session, indices ended marginally lower, dragged by metal stocks as the government imposed export duties on iron ore and some steel intermediaries.
