Nifty unlikely to deliver positive returns in Jan-Mar quarter; check top bets | Unmesh Sharma Interview

Indian share markets are unlikely to deliver positive returns during the Jan-March’23 quarter. From November levels, Nifty may see up to 5% correction till June 2023, said Unmesh Sharma, Head of Institutional Equities, HDFC Securities in an interview with Harshita Tyagi of FinancialExpress.com. Indian markets are expensive but it is not so frothy that one can not consider putting money in right now. Sharma said. From now till June, the probability of an upside is far lower as compared to risk on the downside. “You can deal with this in two ways. Either you invest in a staggered manner or you reduce the risk in your portfolio by betting on growth at a reasonable price, value, and thematics,” he added.

Crude prices recover

“After witnessing a prolonged weakness, crude prices managed to conclude the previous week on a higher note, snapping the negative streak. Crude prices had slipped to 16-week lows versus a basket of currencies as data showed US consumer spending rose significantly in October. The week ending November 25 saw a nearly 13-million-barrel decline in US crude oil stockpiles, the largest decline since 2019. Declining US crude inventories helped boost gains, but the upside was restrained as concerns that OPEC+ would stick with its existing output strategy at its upcoming meeting.”

Nifty trend may become bearish if index fall below 18600

Inability to close above 18,715 today or an outright fall below 18,600 will confirm bearish suspicions even before 18,470 is seen, but until then expect attempts to push higher.”-Anand James – Chief Market Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

Mid and small cap rally likely to gather momentum

“The better-than-expected US job numbers in November were surprisingly ignored by the market with the S&P 500 ending flat. This message from the market indicates that the Fed is unlikely to reverse its well telegraphed slower pace of tightening. The market doesn’t see the terminal rate going above 5%. In India there are signals that this is a market trending higher, in spite of the high valuations. The upcoming MPC decision and more importantly the RBI’s message will be keenly awaited by the market. The mid and small cap rally is likely to gather momentum.”-VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

Positive bias to continue if Nifty above 18561

“Markets are expected to edge higher in early trades Monday following gains in Asian indices after key US gauges on Friday rose on the back of stronger than expected US jobs growth in November. Despite the positive momentum, traders may exercise caution ahead of the monetary policy week this week, as the market had already rallied sharply in little time while valuations also look a bit stretched. Technically speaking, the positive bias would continue as long as Nifty holds above its make-or-break support at 18561 mark”.

Nifty to witness buying above 18900, Bank Nifty may head towards 43500; use this strategy for 8 Dec F&O expiry

The chart pattern suggests that if Nifty crosses and sustains above 18900 level, it would witness buying which would lead the index towards 19100-19300 levels. However, if the index breaks below 18500 level, it would witness selling which would take the index towards 18300-18100. For the week, we expect Nifty to trade in the range of 19300-18100 with positive bias. The weekly strength indicator RSI is above its respective reference lines indicating positive bias.

FPIs were buyers in November, no sectoral consistency

FPIs turned strong buyers in November consistently buying financials, IT, autos, FMCG, capital goods and telecom. They were sellers in financials in October, but were buyers in November. There is no consistency in their sectoral selling strategy. In the short run the most important factor determining FPI strategy is the movement in the dollar index. When the dollar index moves up and is expected to trend up, they sell. Conversely when the dollar index declines and is expected to trend down, they buy. Going forward, India will get its fair share of FPI money. But the high valuation in India will be a deterrent.

Nifty to hold 18,300 during consolidation phase

This week, all eyes will be on the outcome of the MPC meet scheduled on December 7. Besides, the performance of global indices and foreign flow trends will continue to provide cues in between. Markets may witness some consolidation early this week. However, the tone would remain positive and our immediate target of 19000 is intact in Nifty. We expect Nifty to hold 18,300 during the consolidation phase. Since all the sectors are contributing to the move on a rotational basis, the focus should be on accumulating quality stocks on dips. The recent improvement in the broader market participation is certainly encouraging but participants should remain selective.”-Ajit Mishra, VP – Technical Research, Religare Broking
