Decent Q2 earnings supporting domestic market in near term

“Gains in index heavyweights helped the domestic market to withstand its gains despite negative trends in its global peers. US tech stocks had a significant sell-off following disappointing quarterly results and a bleak forecast. The ECB raised its interest rate by 75bps, also signalling that it is making progress in combating record inflation, though the plausibility for a recession grew. However, the strengthening rupee along with a softening treasury yield and decent Q2 earnings results are supporting the domestic market in the near term.”-Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services

Domestic PV industry growth to support Maruti’s business

Maruti Suzuki has reported decent performance in 2QFY23. We expect the domestic PV industry to record double digit volume growth in FY23 and FY24, which would support MSIL’s business. Moreover, sales of premium products would further increase. MSIL would enjoy the benefit of higher market shares in CNG variants, as preference for CNG vehicles has been rising. In view of expected healthy PV sales over the next 2 years owing to low penetration and rising affordability, strong products portfolio across markets, strong return ratio and healthy balance sheet, at present we have BUY on MSIL.”-Mitul Shah – Head of Research at Reliance Securities

Maruti Q2FY23 results beat estimates; buy stock

“Maruti Suzuki 2Q performance was better-than-street estimates. Its new models – New Brezza, New Baleno, and Vitara have been gaining good traction. Pending customer orders stood at about 412k vehicles at the end of the quarter, of which 130k units for the newly launched models. The company has addressed white spaces in its portfolio through the launch of Brezza and Grand Vitara. However, higher competition in the SUV space and slow revival in the entry segment still remains a concern. Production levels for the company are almost back to normal levels as the chip issue is largely addressed. However, market share gains remain key for Maruti, due to the competitive intensity in the UV space. Maruti has lost significant market share over the last few years (41% in Sep-22YTD vs 51% in FY19).” – Mansi Lall – Research Associate, Prabhudas Lilladher

Any minor dip could be seen as an opportunity for bulls to add long bets

“On the technical perspective, the crucial support of the 17650 was firmly safeguarded, implying the resilience of the technical support. However, some tentativeness was evident on the higher grounds as the index struggled to breach the 17800 zone in the entire week. In terms of technical levels, any breach above the mentioned resistance could surge the market toward the 18000 zone in a comparable period (which we believe should happen anytime soon). At the same time, on the lower end, the 17650-17600 could be seen as immediate support, followed by the sacrosanct support around the 17500 mark. Going forward, our market is likely to remain upbeat in the near term, wherein any minor dip could be seen as an opportunity for the bulls to add long bets. We may expect gradual moves in key indices, but individual pockets are performing well. Hence, it’s advisable to keep focusing on such potential movers, which are likely to provide better trading opportunities.”-Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One

Nifty already up by 6% in October, trend looks set to continue

“The near-term market construct is clearly ‘advantage bulls.’ There are many factors going in favour of the bulls like strong Q3 GDP numbers (2.6%) in the US, easing recession fears, indications of declining inflation and expectations that Fed might pause rate hikes in Q1 of 2023. In India, even though valuations look high from the short- term perspective, there are favourable factors that can take the market higher. The important positive is the decline in US 10-year bond yield to below 4% which will persuade the FPIs to buy rather than sell in the near-term. The encouraging Q2 results will provide fodder to the bulls. Nifty is already up by 6% in October and the trend looks set to continue. The resilience of banking, select autos, capital goods and telecom might continue.”-VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

Rollover Analysis (Expiry Day)| Rollovers – SSF: 93%; Mkt Wide: 90%; Nifty: 76%

“It was a Happy Diwali for the bulls as the sharp rebound in the last two weeks led markets to settle the October series at 17,722 with a gain of 5.5%. At the start of the series, Nifty Index took support at 100 DMA and after consolidating in the first half of the month, bulls eked out bears in no time. The major factors which led the bulls to win were mainly technical (extremely depressed sentiment, oversold prices, extreme FII short positioning) and most importantly the Q2 FY23 earnings season (especially the banks) have been strong, although there are still several reports to come. This series was an important one as Client (HNI & Retail) category was clearly the winner. They took aggressive long bets in future segment at start of the October series while FIIs who started with aggressive shorts, have now converted their positions to longs which majorly led to the sharp up move in last few days.”-Abhilash Pagaria, Head – Alternative & Quantitative Research, Nuvama Wealth

Rollover action- Sector Specific

At the start of October series, we observe that the Auto Sector for the third consecutive month is seeing long unwinding. The Aggressive long side bias is seen in Banking Sector (Private and PSU both- most of the names also saw roll cost expanding).  Interestingly the dark horse for Nov series could be I.T. and Metal sectors as the OI base is quite lower vs averages and any good surprise can lead benchmark and stocks higher. –Abhilash Pagaria, Head – Alternative & Quantitative Research, Nuvama Wealth

Rollover Analysis

Outlook for October Series | Upside momentum to continue followed by immediate resistance at 18,200

“The bulls maintained upper hand in the second half of October series, and they continue to hold the grounds which is clearly reflected in today’s roll cost expansion and rollovers percentage. The monthly seasonality is also in favour of the bulls as November has settled in green 7 out of 10 years with an average return of 1.3%. Alongside, Bank Nifty also had the same hit ratio with an average return of 80 bps. We believe Nifty Index could move towards 18,200 and then find some resistance while 17,100 will be a very important support and in case we move closer to this level then it should be used as an opportunity to buy with 16,900 as strict stop loss. Thus we expect the market to consolidate at higher levels and face stiff resistance above 18,450.”-Abhilash Pagaria, Head – Alternative & Quantitative Research, Nuvama Wealth

Participant Positioning | FIIs changed stance from aggressive shorts to net longs & Clients booked gains

Client category have clearly utilised the surge in markets to book profits and trim longs by 96k contracts.

The FII category change in positioning (excessive shorts to longs) have clearly helped Client category benefit as at the start of October series , FIIs were net short by 23k contracts  and now they are starting November series with net longs by 117k contracts. Alongside, FIIs refused to carry net shorts in Index Futures. They were net shorts by 121k contracts (at start of oct series) and are now net longs by 23k contracts.

Nifty may head towards 18100; ‘stick to buy-on-dip approach, look for stock specific opportunities’

Post the sharp correction in the later part of the September series, Nifty started the October series on a positive note. The index formed a support base in the range of 17000-16750 and then it recovered gradually throughout the series. The intermediate dips during the series got bought into and the index ended the October expiry well above 17700 with gains of over 5 percent compared to last expiry closing. The October series started with rollover of short positions by the FII’s. However, as the series progressed, the global markets started to recover from their lows and the Nifty too formed a support base around 17000 mark and started to recover. Thus, we witnessed unwinding of short positions gradually which led to an upmove in the index.

Oil prices edge higher

Oil rose more than $1 a barrel on Thursday, extending the previous day's rally of nearly 3%, as optimism over record U.S. crude exports and signs that recession fears are abating outweighed concern over slack demand in China. Data showed record U.S. crude exports, a hopeful sign for demand. Speculation that central banks could be nearing the end of rate-hiking cycles added support, after the European Central bank raised rates by 75 basis points. Brent crude settled up $1.27, or 1.3%, to $96.96 a barrel while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude settled up $1.17, or 1.3%, to $89.08 a barrel.

Nifty can move towards 18000 above 17800

“Trading session was marked by extreme volatility on the monthly F&O expiry day, but sharp rally in metals, realty and oil & gas stocks helped markets maintain the bullish sentiment seen in the recent trades. Investors are positive about the India growth story, which is driving markets higher despite several headwinds on the external front. Technically, for the last three sessions, the Nifty has consistently found resistance near the 17800 level and conversely taking support near 17625. For Nifty, 17800 would be the key breakout level and above the same the index could move up to 17900-18000. On the flip side, a fresh round of selling is possible only after the dismissal of 17625.

ECB raises interest rates by 75 basis points

The European Central Bank on Thursday rolled out another bumper rate hike to combat soaring inflation, despite growing concern that the eurozone is hurtling towards a painful recession. The ECB's 25-member governing council repeated last month's unprecedented move and opted for another increase of 75 basis points, leaving its three main rates sitting in a range of between 1.5 and 2.25 percent.

The hike was widely expected and comes as the Frankfurt institution faces pressure to rein in record-high inflation, mainly driven by skyrocketing energy costs in the wake of Russia's war in Ukraine. Eurozone inflation stood at 9.9 percent in September, nearly five times the ECB's two-percent target.

IMF cuts Asia’s economic forecasts

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) cut Asia's economic forecasts on Friday as global monetary tightening, rising inflation blamed on the war in Ukraine, and China's sharp slowdown dampened the region's recovery prospects. While inflation in Asia remains subdued compared with other regions, most central banks must continue raising interest rates to ensure inflation expectations do not become de-anchored, the IMF said in its Asia-Pacific regional economic outlook report.

“Asia's strong economic rebound early this year is losing momentum, with a weaker-than expected second quarter,” said Krishna Srinivasan, director of the IMF's Asia and Pacific Department.
