The onset of the festive season, combined with a relatively stronger macroeconomic environment and easing semiconductor shortage may help the car market in India retain strength amid a global fall in vehicle sales, according to Moody’s. The ratings agency switched outlook for the global automotive industry from ‘stable’ to ‘negative’, but called India a ‘bright spot’. Global car sales are expected to fall due to various reasons, including shortage of parts, regulatory pressures, and consumer sentiment, Moody’s said. On the other hand, sales volumes in India jumped 12.5 per cent this year. The leap is expected to proliferate by another four per cent in 2023, according to Moody’s. Read More

Should investors rollover futures or let it expire today?

Investors must roll their futures on the long side. If they are short in the current month, it would be prudent to exit shorts and take whatever profits they are left with. Futures should be rolled over on the long side. Secondly, Nifty's moving past 17000 would be crucial; it would also mean crossing above the 200-DMA again. If this happens, it may invite another dose of short covering in the markets. Milan Vaishnav, CMT, MSTA and founder of Gemstone Equity Research

Nifty can see upward momentum only if it crosses 17327 hurdle

“Markets are likely to see a firm opening on Thursday, tracking a recovery in other Asian indices after US gauges staged a smart recovery in the overnight trades. The key positive catalyst is yields in the US and Europe retreated after the Bank of England's announcement that it will carry out temporary purchases of long-dated UK government bonds in order to restore orderly market conditions offered investors some support. However, caution will still prevail and intra-day choppy trend is not ruled out due to global uncertainty over persisting increase in interest rates, rising inflation and geo-politicial tensions. On the technical front, Nifty can see upward momentum only if it crosses the hurdle of 17327 mark.”

India forex reserves set to shrink further, stir memories of 2008 crisis – Reuters Poll

India's depleted foreign exchange reserves are likely to drop further, falling to their lowest level in over two years by end-2022, as the Reserve Bank of India continues to defend the rupee from the mighty dollar's rise, a Reuters poll found. In a battle that has so far failed to staunch the rupee's fall to a record low against the greenback, the RBI has drawn down its foreign exchange reserves by nearly $100 billion to $545 billion from a peak of $642 billion a year ago, and more is coming. Those reserves are forecast to fall another $23 billion to $523 billion by the end of this year, according to the median forecast from a Sept. 26-27 Reuters poll of 16 economists. If realised, that would be the lowest level in over two years.

Buy in index heavyweight stocks if Nifty falls to 16700 levels

“Markets remained choppy with a sharply downward bias, as investors exited banking and metal stocks ahead of the monthly F&O expiry with the likely rate hike by the RBI & other central banks indicating that bearish sentiment could continue going ahead. Technically, we are of the view that 17000 would act as an immediate resistance level. Below which, the correction wave is likely to continue till 16700-16650. On the flip side, a short recovery rally is possible only after the dismissal of 17000. Above the same the index could move up to 17100-17200. The Nifty is having major support between 16700-16650 (which is important retracement support level).  Buying is advisable in index heavyweight stocks if Nifty falls to 16700 levels,”
