Nifty may fall below 17500 if weakness persists, US Fed may hike rate by 100 bps; watch out for these levels

At the beginning of last week, we had less fear of a long liquidation as the long build up was significantly lower than what was prevailing in early April and mid August, the last two occasions when Nifty sniffed at 18k vicinity and turned lower. FIIs’ long exposure in the index future segment was boosted to 28% on Friday, despite the fall, marking an increase from 22% seen at the start of the week. It was the retail segment that was long heavy, having accumulated 72.9% of the longs in the index future segment, last week, and they have since reduced their exposure marginally to 68.9%.

However, commodity prices have come off sharply from their peaks with renewed concerns on global growth, led by strong monetary tightening that is likely to continue at least until Dec'22. At this juncture, India seems isolated from the high inflation-slow growth challenges. Motilal Oswal Financial Services

Nifty may slip below 17400, resistance at 17777; buy these two stocks to pocket short-term gains

As macroeconomic and policy uncertainty remains elevated, further market volatility is expected. US data pointed to robust numbers like retail sales and a strong labor market which is raising expectations of more aggressive action by the Fed as it tries to cool inflation. US 2-Year bond spiked to 15-year high at 3.87% while 10-year bond is hovering at 3.44%, implying a short-term pain to continue in the global markets. Moreover, US Dollar Index surged to multi years high, resulting in sharp decline across the commodity prices (Gold fell to 2-year low, aluminum, copper, oil to 2-7 month low).  Apart from the US rate decision, Bank of England policy decision on 22nd (Thursday) and domestic Logistic policy will be announced today.

Bank Nifty will continue to be the pillar of support for Nifty

The near term texture of the market has turned weak and the buy on dips strategy is unlikely to work in the present risk-off global environment. FIIs turning sellers is a short-term negative. The market is likely to take a decisive trend only after the Fed policy announcement on 21st September. The market expects the Fed to raise rates by 75bp and reiterate its hawkish stance. But since the market is going into the event with light positions and no positive expectations any positive data or comment may act as a trigger for a relief rally after the Fed announcement. Bank Nifty will continue to be the pillar of support for Nifty and near-term sentiments are negative for IT despite reasonable valuations. The situation is very fluid and therefore it would be better for investors to wait and watch till the Fed meeting is over. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

Nifty support at 17400; resistance at 17700

“Benchmark Indices are expected to open on a positive note as suggested by trends on SGX Nifty. US stock markets ended on the lower side on Friday as investors are reacting to the warning of impending global slowdown from FedEx. Dow Jones was down by 139 pts, whereas NASDAQ was down by 0.9% to 11448 levels. Asian markets are trading on a mixed note as investors are waiting for the outcome from various central banks which are meeting this week. The Australian market is trading 0.11% higher whereas South Korea is down by 0.4%. Goldman Sachs cut its US economic growth estimates for 2023 after recently boosting its predictions for Federal Reserve interest rate hikes. Oil prices are trading higher due to the weaker dollar and supply concerns. On the technical front, 17400 and 17700 are immediate support and resistance in Nifty 50. For Bank Nifty 40300 and 41000 are immediate support and resistance respectively.”

Nifty, Bank Nifty levels to watch for

“The support for Nifty has shifted around 17300 levels while on the upside 17850 may act as an immediate hurdle. On the other hand, Bank Nifty has support at 40000 levels while resistance at 41400 levels. Overall, the Nifty is looking weak on charts closing below 17500 can open the gate for 17300-17200. Sell on rising is advisable till Nifty didn’t give closing above 18000 mark.”

Market to remain volatile in the near term

“Investors are widely expecting an aggressive rate hike this week, with 1/3 of market respondents expecting the FED to do 100 bps, whereas a 75bps hike is mostly discounted. To combat pressure on the rupee, the RBI most likely will have to do at least 50 bps rate hikes soon. The Indian Ten Year yield spiked 15 bps to 7.25% in the last three session, in expectation of the same. The adverse rub-off impact of this was felt in the Indian equity market also, over the last three sessions including extended losses on Friday. Further to that, the World Bank gave a gloomy picture of world economies heading toward deep recession, as central banks across the world simultaneously hike interest rates to combat persistent inflation. Fitch especially cut India's economic growth forecast for 2022/23 to 7% from 7.8%. All this fuelled the jitteriness and led to a surge in the Indian market fear index (VIX) above 20, for the first-time post-June 2022. We expect the market to remain volatile in the coming weeks before the market gets more cues from the ensuing quarterly season, which begins early next month.”

Will bulls stage a comeback or bears drag Nifty to 17150? 5 things to know before share market opening bell

Indian stock market is likely to open in green on Monday as trends in the SGX Nifty hinted at a positive start for Indian benchmark indices, with a gain of 43 points. In the previous session, the BSE Sensex fell nearly 1,100 pts to 58,841, while the NSE Nifty 50 plunged around 350 pts to 17,531. “Indian markets were the worst performers in the Asian pack on Friday, as higher inflation and likely aggressive rate hikes by the US Fed sent stocks tumbling across the board. We are likely to see strong bouts of volatility in the coming sessions as global slowdown looms large. Technically, the double top formation on daily and intraday charts and bearish candle on weekly charts is indicating further weakness from current levels,” said Amol Athawale, Deputy Vice President – Technical Research, Kotak Securities.
