Nifty may not break 16700-16500 support zone, buy now for next up-move; Bank stocks could outperform

After having corrected 10% from all-time highs, the Nifty 50 index could now be preparing for its next leg of up-move, said analysts at ICICI Direct.

Relief Rally

“Yesterday, Nifty turned lower after briefly penetrating our 17280 marker, and plunged to a fresh intraday low towards yesterday’s close. Though this appears to have added momentum to the 16500 trajectory, many Nifty components ended up with either fully or half formed morning star candlestick patterns. This suggest that the, should Nifty manage to float above 17050-100 region, a relief rally aiming 17385-450 could be on the cards. Alternatively, inability to float above 17050 could negate this view, but a collapse is less likely.”

Nifty may drop to 16500 if it gives up 16900

On the contrary short positions can be strategically timed with strict stops. Since the market has opened with a gap, the risk-reward ratio would be favorable. If the Nifty does not hold 16900, we could drop to 16500,” said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.

Nifty may not fall below 16900-16700

“We expect index to undergo a base formation around key support zone of 16900-16700 wherein stock-specific action will prevail. However, for a meaningful pullback to materialise the index needs to decisively close above previous sessions high. Else continuance of lacklustre move amid stock specific action. Thus, dips should be capitalised on to accumulate quality stocks as we do not expect Nifty to breach key support threshold of 16900-16700. Meanwhile, 17600 would continue to act as immediate hurdle being 50 days EMA,” said ICICI Direct.

Valuations more reasonable now

Going ahead, we expect the market to witness higher volatility in the near term given the uncertainty around the new Omicron variant. As the clarity would emerge over the next few weeks with regards to its transmission, impact on hospitalization, mortality, etc, the market direction would be decided in due course. Till then Travel, Tourism, Hospitality, and Retail are some of the segments which are likely to underperform. Even sectors/stocks exposed to markets with rising COVID-19 cases/greater prevalence of the Omicron variant may underperform. We expect sector rotation to defensives like Pharma, IT, and Consumer till sentiments improve. However, Nifty valuations post-correction at ~20x FY23E EPS is relatively more reasonable now and thus would advise investors to buy in this pullback in a staggered fashion.
