Financials expected to join rally

“Is the ongoing pull back in markets, globally, a bear market rally or the beginning of another bull phase? We will know the answer to this question only later. Meanwhile investors can look at stocks leading the rally now and try to anticipate segments that will  join the rally if this uptrend sustains. The sharp upmove in Nasdaq is likely to have a rub on effect on Indian IT stocks too. This beaten-down segment, depressed by shorts and sustained FPI selling, is staging a comeback supported by strong fundamentals. Export segments like textiles are staging a comeback. Financials have strong fundamentals and, therefore, can be expected to join the rally soon.”

Nifty key resistance at 16,740

“The technical structure construes to be encouraging, as the market has been hovering in a slender range for the last couple of trading sessions and is attracting buying interest at the lower levels. Also, from the technical perspective, the index has formed a strong 'bullish engulfing' pattern on the expiry day, which is an intriguing factor for the bulls. As far as levels are concerned, the unfilled gap on the downside of the 16370-16430 odd zone, which even coincides with the 21-DEMA, has already proved its mettle in providing a strong demand and is expected to yield immediate support. While on the contrary, the 200-DEMA placed near 16740 is likely to act as immediate resistance, and any decisive breach above the same could trigger fresh momentum in the coming period.”

Decisive break above 16,700 in Nifty to fuel fresh momentum towards 16,900

“Markets managed to gain over half a percent on the weekly expiry session amid mixed cues. After the tepid start, healthy buying in select index majors pushed the benchmark higher and helped it to settle around the day’s high. Amongst the sectors, Auto and Capital Goods ended with losses whereas Oil & Gas, IT and Metal ended with healthy gains. The broader indices traded in sync with the benchmark and gained over half a percent each. While the global markets are still pointing towards mixed signals, selective buying in index majors across sectors is helping the index to inch higher. A decisive break above 16,700 in Nifty would fuel fresh momentum towards 16,900. We maintain our positive bias and recommend focusing on sectors/themes which are gaining traction. At the same time, participants shouldn’t go overboard and maintain strict risk management in place.”
