    There could be more PSUs declaring buybacks or large dividends

    HPCL has announced a buyback of 10 crore shares at Rs 250 per share which is positive for the stock. We believe that this is a method by which the Government is looking to shore up its finances in the aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis. The Government holds a 51% stake in the company and will be the biggest beneficiary of the buyback. We expect that there could be more PSUs declaring buybacks or large dividends as the Government will try and mobilize as much revenues as possible given that they are staring at a large fiscal deficit this financial year: Jyoti Roy - DVP- Equity Strategist, Angel Broking Ltd

    Wall Street not fazed or confused by US Presidential Elections; is the worst over for US stocks?

    Wall Street has seen a decent start to November so far. Even a nail-biting US Presidential Election, which threatens to end with a court battle, has not dashed the hopes of investors. S&P 500 has gained 4% in the last two days, while NASDAQ has jumped 5.7%. Now the question stands — is the worst of the correction over? Between the October 12 till the end of the month, Dow Jones, S&P 500, and NASDAQ all slipped over 7.5%, and have now recouped more than half of those losses in just two trading sessions.

    For rupee, the resilience of the pair can be seen in the price action during the intraday session as it seems relatively stable v/s peers.

    Gold may witness choppy trade until US elections results are clear

    COMEX gold trades modestly higher near $1907/oz after a 0.7% decline yesterday. Gold trades higher as the possibility of a contested election in the US has increased safe-haven appeal. Mixed US economic data, rising virus cases and hopes of additional stimulus measures has also lent support. However, weighing on price is ETF outflows and firmer US dollar. Gold may witness choppy trade until US elections results are clear but general bias may be on the upside on hopes of additional measures: Ravindra Rao, VP- Head Commodity Research at Kotak Securities

    1-2 day trend of the Nifty 50 is now range bound

    Indian markets could open sharply higher following bullish Asian markets today and sharply positive US markets on Wednesday. The 1-2 day trend of the Nifty is now range bound and Nifty is likely to remain within the 11750-11930 levels in the very near term. Our 3-7 day targets are at 11975-12026 as the Nifty has broken out of a range and made a rounding bottom pattern on the daily chart. Our bullish bets are off if Nifty dives lower and closes below 50-day SMA at 11570. In this scenario, downside targets would be at 11347-11184: HDFC Securities

    Indian markets likely to see gap up opening

    Indian markets are likely to see a gap up opening tracking positive global cues as markets looked ahead to the outcome of the US presidential elections. However, global news flows and sector-specific developments will be key monitorable. The gap up opening would help index to entirely retrace past fourteen sessions decline (12025-11535) in just four sessions. A faster pace of retracement further corroborates our constructive stance and pave the way to head towards our earmarked target of 12400 by December. Therefore, any temporary breather from here on should be capitalised as an incremental buying opportunity: ICICI Direct Research

    Buying is advisable if Nifty 50 convincingly crosses 12050

    Uncertainties over vote outcome in the US kept the world equity indices volatile throughout the day. Nifty traded between the trading range of 11756 and 11930. In the last 18 days, multiple times Nifty has managed to surpass the range of 11950 and 12050, however, it fails to sustain at higher levels. Such types of resistance zone get broken with a gap up opening. Today's opening would be more relevant for market to scale higher. Buying is advisable if Nifty convincingly crosses 12050 levels. Above 12050 levels, Nifty would move in a new trading zone of 12200 and 12300 levels.
