Performance of gold in November

“Gold prices have been on a declining trajectory for the past several months. The fall is primarily due to the US Fed's action of hiking rates to tame the inflation that hit a four-decade high level. A rising interest rate scenario increases the opportunity cost to invest in gold – a non-interest-yielding asset. Despite the fall in gold prices in the CY22, the prices have risen around 10% YoY in INR terms, while in USD terms it has fallen nearly 2% due to currency fluctuation.

The yellow metal started the month on a weak note as the US Dollar rose to a peak, making it dearer to buy gold. It has gained ground as the Fed officials hinted at a slowdown in the pace of future rate hikes. Gold prices in India are expected to inch higher as we enter the marriage season, commentary by the US Fed on rates. A slowdown in the West and escalation of geo-political tensions may provide a fillip to the prices of gold going forward.”

IT sector showing strength

“The Indian indices scaled an all-time high level and participation is visible from all the sectors. The cement space is buzzing about possible price hikes in the sector. The IT sector is showing strength after the Fed's speech of toning down the pace of the interest rate hikes going forward.”

Crude prices recovering

“Post witnessing a recovery the previous day, crude prices continued the recovery for yet another day, as both the benchmark indices ended on a higher note. Brent ended with 2.52 percent gains and NYMEX ended 3.01 percent higher. Signs of tighter supply, a weaker dollar and optimism over a Chinese demand recovery pushed the prices higher. US crude oil stocks plunged by nearly 13 million barrels, the most since 2019, in the week ended Nov. 25.

On the demand side, hope for a revival in demand in China, the largest consumer of oil, provided additional assistance. China reported fewer COVID-19 infections than on Tuesday, while the market speculated that weekend protests could prompt an easing in travel restrictions. Expectations of improving demand from China and falling crude stocks would likely propel crude prices higher.”

High chance of US Fed hiking rates by 50 bps in December

“US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s speech reinforced expectations of smaller interest rate hikes ahead. Governor Powell mentioned in his speech that it was time to slow the pace of coming interest rate hikes while also signalling a protracted economic adjustment to a world where borrowing costs will remain high, inflation comes down slowly, and the US remains chronically short of workers.

There were words of caution regarding higher inflation where further rate hikes will be required although markets cheered the statements highlighting the pace of the same. Market participants now expect a 91% chance of a 50 basis points rate hike in the US central bank’s upcoming December meeting. On data front, US private payrolls increased far less than expected in November, suggesting demand for labour was cooling amid high interest rates. This data has also raised a sign of caution ahead of the non farm payroll data scheduled on Friday; which could be important to influence further fed decisions.”

Nifty can touch 19,400 levels

“Expect indecisiveness to creep in after stretching to 18,900. However, if pull back thereof does not stretch much beyond 18,715, expect rapid advances to 19,400. Alternatively, expect upsides hopes to be diluted on bull beyond 18,715, but a collapse is not expected unless below 18,470.”

Nifty target of 19,000 seen; traders should focus on stocks from cash segment

“The bulls continue to show their hegemony in the market and the moment it feels as if they are going to loosen up their grip a bit, moves like yesterday appear from nowhere. We have been persistent with our optimistic approach and are not at all surprised with seeing Nifty at new milestone of 18800. Hence, it’s advisable not to fall for any intraday declines, because the positioning has been quite strong and all meaningful dips are getting bought into. Now, with most of the heavyweight spaces participating in the move, we can consider this as a robust rally. Importantly, the broader end of the spectrum has finally shown some signs of coming out of the slumber phase. 

Hence, the magical figure of 19000 is very much in sight now. For the coming session, 18675 – 18600 should be seen as immediate supports; whereas on the flipside, 18900 and then 19000 is the key level to watch out for. Traders are advised to focus on stocks from the cash segment, which are likely to find their mojo back in coming days.”

FIIs showing renewed interest in Indian markets

“Strong global cues led by overnight surge in the US markets is expected to give local equities a major fillip in early trades Thursday. Adding to the optimism, FIIs showing renewed interest in Indian markets and the lifting of curbs in several cities from the Chinese authorities could encourage investors to go long on equities in the near to medium term. Technically, while the aggressive inter-month bull case for Nifty is seen between 19000-19500 zone, the make-or-break support for the index is seen only at 18577 mark.”

Indian markets could open higher, in line with positive Asian markets today

“US stocks finished sharply higher on Wednesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average rising over 700 points to technically exit a bear market, after Federal Reserve Chairman Powell said the central bank’s pace of interest-rate increases can slow as soon as its December meeting. He said the ultimate level of the Fed’s benchmark rate would have to be higher than it was thought a few months ago, and he tried to keep any talk of rate cuts off the table. For the month, the S&P 500 booked a monthly gain of 4.6%, while the Dow advanced 5.3% and the Nasdaq rose 3.3%.The MSCI Asia-Pacific index rose 13.9% in November, its biggest 30-day gain in 24 years.”

Bank Nifty support seen at 42,800

“The Bank Nifty index continued to trade in a narrow range between 43,000-43,500 where both the bulls and the bears are sitting on the lines. The undertone remains bullish and one should keep a buy-on-dip approach as long as it maintains the support of 42,800 on the downside. The index on the upside to resume the momentum must surpass the hurdle of 43,500 on a closing basis,”

Nifty pathfinder view

“Massive buying in cash by FIl's due to MSCI rebalancing + Big Volume Day + Powell speech means things have changed drastically. Strong monthly close in Nifty + Large Bullish Green candles in US markets = More upside.

COI: Nifty +4.2% | Long Buildup, high volumes

COI: BN -0.4% | Flat Ol but high volumes

Nifty Options Data: Bullish | PCR: 1.55

BN Options Data: Bullish | PCR: 1.03 up

FIls Bought: Cash, IF, SF & IOI Sold: SO

This move was primarily due to buying in cash (Rs 9,010 Crs) as compared to derivatives by FIls. Index components witnessed mix of short covering & long buildup.

Nifty Pathfinder View: 19,000 which seemed like a long walk may now happen in a hop. We have maintained aggressive longs in stocks & recommended multiple baskets which should start delivering the profits. (Missed the bus in Nifty).

Nifty showed strong upside momentum

A long bull candle was formed on the daily chart with minor upper shadow. “Technically, this pattern indicates a continuation of upside momentum in the market. After showing a choppy movement in the last couple of sessions the market displayed a strong upside momentum towards the later part of the session. This is a positive indication. The positive chart pattern of higher tops and bottoms continued on the daily chart. Though Nifty placed near the higher top around 18800 levels, still there is no indication of reversal pattern forming at the highs.”

Nifty resistance at 19,000

“The Nifty made a new all-time during the day as the Nifty bulls remained at the helm during the day. The crucial short-term moving averages are sitting below the index value, confirming the positive trend. The trend is likely to remain bullish as long as it remains above 18,600 as the support level shifts higher. On the higher end, resistance is visible at 18,800/19,000.”
