    After a stellar 20-month rally, analysts at global brokerage and research firm CLSA believe, Indian equities are now on ‘borrowed time’ while advising investors to book profits. Sensex and Nifty have skyrocketed 120% and 124% respectively, since the beginning of April 2020, setting multiple all-time highs along with way. However, expensive valuations, elevated input price, and probability of earnings disappointment are now seen as reasons that limit any further upside. CLSA joins the likes of Nomura, UBS, and Morgan Stanley in cutting India’s weightage citing expensive valuations.

    Earnings partly justify market rally

    "Partly justifying the market rally, corporate earnings have grown by 46 % YoY in Q2. The surge in earnings has been led by financials, metals & mining and oil & gas. But, even discounting this impressive performance by India Inc, the market is over-valued and, therefore, corrections are due. Q3 is likely to be subdued compared to Q2. Headwinds from rising CPI inflation ( 4.48% in October) and a decline in IIP to 3.1% in September are likely to impact earnings in many segments in Q3 and Q4. The global headwind for markets is likely to come from a sooner-than-expected rate hike by the Fed by, say, mid-2022 contrary to market expectation of a rate lift-off starting early 2023," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

    Trading spot band between 18150 and 17880

    From an options perspective, significant Put addition was observed at 18000 Put strike for the coming weekly settlement. A move below these levels may trigger another round of downside in the coming week. However, if the Nifty sustains above 18100, it may continue its positive trend towards 18400 in the coming sessions. For the coming session, the trading spot band is between 18150 and 17880, which means further upsides are likely once the immediate resistances of 18150 are taken out and weakness could emerge if the supports of 17880 are broken.
