    Niti Aayog's proposal to tax fuel under GST

    Amid a raging row over the hefty taxes on petrol and diesel, NITI Aayog is learnt to have proposed a formula whereby the two motor fuels and electricity could be brought under the goods and services tax (GST) in one go, without causing much Centre-state tussle. According to the think-tank’s formula, the Centre would compensate the states for potential revenue losses on account of shifting electricity – which is currently being taxed by the states exclusively – to GST for about six years. Recently, NITI Aayog held a discussion on transition of energy products into the GST regime with economists and industry experts where it floated these ideas.

    Nifty may attempt to hit 18,000 next week

    For the next week, support for Nifty is seen between 17440-17295. If this support zone holds, we could see a retest of today's high and a possible attempt towards 18000. However, if the support zone fails to hold, the index could be set for a correction towards 16920, which represents the 38.2% retracement of the rally from July 28th.

    Nifty still remains in uptrend

    The market selloff today seems mostly on the back of profit booking, following a stellar rally over the last few weeks. Since July 28th, Nifty has gained a whopping 15%. Meanwhile, during this period, the global markets barely moved higher, with the MSCI Emerging Market index advancing 4% and the DJIA being essentially flat. Given this stellar outperformance, some sort of cool off or consolidation cannot be ruled out in the short-term. That said, the overall trend of Nifty remains up and corrections, if any, should be used as buying opportunities. Abhishek Chinchalkar, CMT Charterholder and Head of Education, FYERS

    Gold's sharp fall has dented market sentiment

    COMEX gold trades little changed near $1756/oz after a sharp 2.1% decline yesterday. Weighing on gold is upbeat US economic data which strengthened the case for Fed’s monetary tightening. However, supporting price is rising inflation concerns, persisting virus risks, concerns about the health of the Chinese economy and increased geopolitical tensions. ETF inflows also showed some buying interest at lower levels however the pace was modest. Gold's sharp fall has dented market sentiment however we believe that market reaction to US data was exaggerated and price may stabilize near $1750/oz level.

    MCX Gold must reclaim 47000 to stage rally, MCX silver looks bearish on charts; avoid positional long position

    Gold prices fell as much as $40 on Thursday after better-than-expected US retail sales. If we look at the economy as a whole, the retail sector plays an important part, a good indicator of economic strength. The retail sector due to Covid was fairly non-existent but now with a stronger retail sector could mean a more hawkish Federal Reserve down the road. Although we believe the retail figures will not impact the US Fed’s interest rate announcement next week as the Fed mainly looks at inflation and employment figures.

    One can still continue with a stock-centric approach by following strict stop losses; because they are still providing better trading opportunities. Now as far as immediate levels are concerned, 17500 – 17450 – 17350 are to be seen as key supports. Since we are trading in uncharted territory, it’s difficult to project the upside levels and hence, just for understanding, every 100 points psychological level can be considered crucial points.
