India likely to see multi-year economic up-cycle led by strong macros, govt initiatives

“The 2QFY23 earnings season has largely ended with 450/BSE500 companies reported healthy 27% YoY growth in revenue, but inflationary pressure toll on profitability with EBITDA growth of just 4% YoY while PAT fell by 7% YoY. Currency fluctuations, elevated commodity and logistics costs, and geo-political issues were the major inhibitors of growth. However, we expect a recovery starting 3QFY23 led by softening of commodity prices and monetary easing by central banks which is likely to boost demand. The market rallied in U.S. led by lower-than-expected inflation data. The Federal Reserve is likely to slow the pace of its interest-rate increases in the near term. India is likely to see a multi-year economic up-cycle led by strong macros, and various government initiatives.”- Mitul Shah – Head of Research at Reliance Securities

Nifty may retest 18390 level

“Markets exhibited sideways movement in a lacklustre trading session and ended lower as traders booked profit in select counters after the last week's robust upsurge. Lack of fresh positive triggers from the global front prompted investors to trim their holdings, but any uptick in crude oil prices & currency movement could fuel a fresh round of profit-taking. On daily charts, the Nifty has formed a small bearish candle which is indicating indecisiveness between the bulls and bears. For the index, 18250 and 18200 would be key support zones, and above the same it could retest the level of 18390. Any further upside could lift the index up to 18500. Below 18200, any uptrend would be vulnerable.”-Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities
