The Indian rupee extended its drop for the sixth month in trot and closed to life low level of 78.98. India’s expanding trade gap and capital outflows are raising new risks for the rupee, as the currency plunged to a record low it also adds to inflation woes.

Positive move in FMCG, Banking, Financial Service and Realty stocks

Nifty opened marginally lower and has been trading in a narrow range of 150 points. The index is seen facing some pressure at higher levels but getting some support at the lower levels and is hovering in a broader range of 15500 to 16000. Now the index has to hold and sustain above 15735 for any move towards higher levels but the upside is limited. India VIX is hovering at 22 which indicates volatility likely to continue and creating discomfort for the bulls. It needs to cool down for stability and a directional move in the market. Now till it holds above 15735 we can expect an up move towards 15888 and 16000 whereas a break of this level could open a downside move towards 15500 zones. Market breadth is positive which indicates that there support based buying at lower levels. Today, we are witnessing positive move in FMCG, Banking, Financial Service and Realty stocks whereas weakness can be seen in the sectors like Auto, Metal, Media, IT and Pharma space.

Best strategy for investors would be to buy high-quality large-caps

“Market movements this month are likely to be significantly influenced by the Q1 results starting with TCS's results on 8th July. More than the actual numbers, the market will be focused on guidance. Similarly, in financials particularly banking, the market will be keen to know the trends in credit growth rather than the decline in treasury income, which is already known. The buoyancy in GST collections and June auto numbers indicate that economic recovery is gaining momentum, in spite of many headwinds, and this bodes well for the market's performance in H2 FY23. In the present context of high near-term uncertainty, the best strategy for investors would be to buy high-quality large-caps in a calibrated manner and wait with patience.”

15930 resistance level has become a critical resistance

The Nifty 50 index ended the week slightly lower after trading mostly within a 350-point range. The short-term trend continues to remain bearish, but the nifty has outshone its global peers, with most global equity indices trading or breaking below their recent support. The 15930 resistance level has become a critical resistance level, which needs to be broken to confirm the short-term uptrend. As long as the Nifty does not break above this level, traders should maintain a neutral to a faintly negative outlook. Negative global sentiments are likely to keep the market under strain till then.
