Indian share market to be dominated by global news flows

“In the past week, the Nifty and Sensex were largely flat. Till Thursday, the markets were cautious ahead of the release of the US CPI print, however, gained in the last day of week. Both BSE Midcap and SmallCap underperformed and corrected 1.9% and 0.98% respectively. On the economy front, September CPI inflation for India rose to 7.41% (August: 7%), led by rising food prices, while August IIP contracted by 0.8%. FPIs were net sellers in the past five trading sessions, while DIIs were net buyers in the same period.

What is fuelling market rally today?

Benchmark indices are surging throughout today's trading session, with the Nifty rising by 290 points. The IT and Bank indexes are beating the rest, and the Nifty is currently trading at 17282. All indices are in green. In contrast to expectations of 8.1, the U.S. consumer prices index (CPI) report from yesterday showed a growth of 8.2% annually, fueling betting for significant rate hikes. However, the market is now attempting to discount the possibility that inflation may have peaked soon. Because of this, markets are celebrating the data even though inflation figures are higher than expected. On the domestic front, wholesale price-based inflation fell to 10.7% in September for the fourth consecutive month as a result of a decrease in the cost of food, fuel, and manufactured goods, which is also strengthening investor confidence.”~Rahul Goud, Research Analyst – Equity Research, CapitalVia Research

What’s pulling indices up?

“Indian equity market benchmark indices Sensex & Nifty are up around 2% in today's trading session thanks to a sharp short-covering rally in the US market post CPI numbers. Our markets were also oversold as FII's net short position in the index future was 81% and PCR was 0.71. Call writers at a 17000 strike price are on the back foot after a gap-up opening therefore we are getting the support of short covering. The results of Infosys and Mind-tree were better than expected which is also supporting the market. The overall outlook of our market is bullish as Nifty is respecting its 200-DMA beautifully. Investors are advised to look for buying opportunities at every dip. Domestic economy-facing stocks may continue to do well while selective buying in IT, Chemical and Pharma names can be done.”~Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastika Investmart Ltd

F&O expiry 20 Oct Nifty must hold above 17250 for upmove; Bank Nifty outlook positive, avoid aggressive bets

Bank Nifty seems to be clearly trapped within a range and in the last four sessions have moved in a sequence of one blue candle followed by a red candle. Now it would be interesting to see how markets trade on the final day of the week. Immediate support is seen at 38400 below which 38000 can be tested which is the 89EMA. On the flip side, 39200 followed by 39600 would be the key resistance. Considering the placement of key indicators, we remain hopeful for the bulls but one should ideally avoid aggressive bets and keep an eye on global development as well.

MCX Gold trend neutral amid weak Rupee; investors looking to make fresh entry may go long

Gold market has been overwhelmed by the relentless strength of the dollar during September and start of October. Gold had breached $1700 this October and is currently trading at $1668. Yesterday with year-on-year US inflation coming higher than expected, we saw knee jerk reaction where gold witnessed sharp selloff. The reason was anticipation that Fed will continue to push rates higher to bring inflation under control. But gold along with equity assets reversed its course and ended in green. Many financial metrics are flashing red. Five-year charts show major currencies, including the Yen, Pound, Dollar, and Yuan are at extremes.
