Spot gold is currently down nearly 0.45% as the counter is lower for the fifth straight day. The US 10-year yields are flattish around 3.81%, but the US Dollar Index is bid as it is up nearly 0.40%. The strength in the US Dollar Index is coming on China’s economy concerns and hawkish Fed-speak. The Federal Reserve speakers, of late, have continued to stick to hawkish tone, thus diminishing the pivot notion as they don’t make much of one soft inflation reading as observed for October. Although fiasco is cryptos space is somewhat supportive for the yellow metal, the metal is still tied with interest rate gyrations as the central banks continue to be on guard against inflationary pressures. Nonetheless, cryptos developments may cushion the fall to some extent at least. In the given scenario, gold may test support around $1730. Resistance is seen at $1750/$1775.”-Praveen Singh – AVP, Fundamental currencies and Commodities analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas

NSE Bank Nifty index touched an all-time high last week and is close to touching a new peak of 43,000. The banking index has rallied over 16 per cent so far this year, outperforming benchmark NSE Nifty 50, which has risen around 3 per cent. The rally has been on the back of recovery in baking stocks, especially the PSU banks, on account of their robust quarterly performance led by superior asset quality trend and pickup in credit growth. Analysts expect the rally to continue going forward, and the index to continue to scale new highs in the near to medium-term. ICICI Bank Ltd, Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd, IndusInd Bank Ltd, Karnataka Bank Ltd, State Bank of India (SBI), Canara Bank Ltd, Bank of Baroda Ltd and Union Bank Ltd are among the top picks.
We expect Nifty to undergo healthy consolidation which will help to cool off the overbought condition (weekly stochastics placed at 95) formed due to past four week’s 9% rally and form a higher base above key support of 17,800 mark which will eventually pave the way to challenge life highs of 18,600 in coming weeks. Thus, extended breather from here on should be capitalized on as incremental buying opportunity.
IT led the charge last week with a gain of 3.4% followed by banks with a 2.6%. Meanwhile, more sectors were in the red, with consumer durables, power and utilities bleeding more than 4%, and auto and healthcare also bleeding almost as much. Since IT and Banks together weigh the most in Nifty 50 index, the overall market bias appeared neutral to positive, even while there was selling in the broad market. This ensured that despite several solid advances, the record peak of 18,604 was left untested, despite it appearing to be a milestone that could be surpassed on any of the days last week.

100 pts-gap down open for Nifty; index slips to 18,200
Sensex drops 350 points to kick-off new week
“There is a strong tailwind and a strong headwind which can sway the market now. The tailwind is the sharp decline in Brent crude to $86.75, which is a big macro positive for India. But this tailwind is unlikely to take the market higher since the headwind in the form of steadily declining momentum in the recent market uptrend, is very strong. The optimism driven by the recent decline is US inflation has run its course and the market is likely to wait for further data on the direction of US inflation and interest rates. So, this is the time to play defensively rather than taking risky shots at the goal. Cautious defensive games can be a good short-term strategy.”- VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

Nifty could now find support at the 18044-18103 band while 18409 could act as a resistance in the near term.”-Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research, HDFC Securities
“Markets are likely to struggle in early Monday trades, tracking weakness in SGX Nifty and other Asian indices. The pessimism can be attributed to the harsh tone by the Fed officials over the weekend, especially Federal Reserve Governor Christopher Waller's statement that markets were “way out in front” and that rates will not fall until there is “clear, strong” evidence inflation is falling. However, there is a bright possibility that the Nifty could zoom higher and march towards its all-time-high at 18605 amid tumbling crude oil price at $80 a barrel after falling nearly 10% last week, and further decline in the US Dollar index to 107 levels.”-Prashanth Tapse- Research Analyst, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd
Bulls will likely remain subdued on Monday, and benchmark indices BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty are expected to open mildly in red. “Nifty ends almost flat with a minor cut on a week-to-week basis, followed by six straight weeks of gains. The market remained range-bound amid a lack of cues, and it will look for direction ahead of F&O expiry. The good part is that the market is just breathing after a long run-up, and there is a good probability of an upside breakout. However, we are seeing profit booking in a broader market,” says Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastika Investmart.
“Continuing its prior rising trend, Bank Nifty kept exploring uncharted territory in the last week. The index recorded a new life-timehigh of 42,623-level and outperformed benchmark Nifty. On Friday, the index bounced after testing its near-term support zone of (42,350-42,200 zone) and closed on a flat to negative note. The key technical indicators stuck around the overbought zone on the daily timeframe chart. In case the index violates, its near-term support zone, this could drag it towards 42,000-41,900 zone. In the meanwhile, short-term consolidation cannot be ruled out. On the higher side, the index will face hurdle around 42,700-level. As for the day, support is placed at around 42,244 and then at 42,050 levels, while resistance is observed at 42,611 and then at 42,784 levels.”-Reliance Securities
“Nifty failed to continue its prior rising trend during the last week amidst subdued heavyweights. The index closed on a flat to negative note after four consecutive upticks. On very last trading session of the week, the index witnessed relatively high volatility and closed around near-term support of 18,300-level. Overall market breadth remained negative, while mixed trend witnessed across the sectors. The key technical indicators are on the verge of bearish cross-over on the short-term timeframe chart. As per the current set-up, the index is poised for near-term decline, which could drag it towards 18,210-18,175 zone initially and 17,950-level subsequently. In case the index bounce, it may face hurdle around 18,450-level. As for the day, support is placed at around 18,213 and then at 18,119 levels, while resistance is observed at 18,398 and then at 18,489 levels.”-Reliance Securities

“Markets traded volatile and ended marginally lower on Friday as we can see Nifty Auto index (-1.17%) drag but PSU Banks shine (+1.34%). Technically, Nifty traded with negative bias but the positive takeaway was that bulls regrouped at lower levels on backdrops of improving Asian and European stock markets – but still, The line in the sand at Nifty’s support at 18151 mark. As long as Nifty 18151 support is held, Nifty’s immediate goal post is seen at its all-time-high at 18605 mark and then targets at psychological 19000 mark.”-Prashanth Tapse – Research Analyst, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd
“During last week, direction of the domestic market was largely driven by the trend of global peers. Global markets were surging in the expectation that the Fed will scale back its aggressive rate hike in reaction to easing U.S. inflation data. However, the euphoria was dashed by better U.S. retail sales in October and aggressive remarks from Fed officials. Domestic CPI inflation has moderated to 6.8% owing to declines in food and commodity prices, however, it remained above the RBI’s tolerance level. The CPI is estimated to fall within the range from Q1 FY24. Although domestic macroeconomic indicators and FII inflows are favourable, negative vibes from global markets and premium valuation compared to peers, the domestic market traded with caution. In the absence of major domestic triggers, the domestic market is expected to continue its focus on global trends. Considering the current market scenario, a balanced approach with a mix of equity & debt, 60:40 for an average risk-averse investor, is advised as interest yields are becoming attractive, and the economy is slowing.”-Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services
“In the prevailing scenario, the focus should be on identifying opportunities across sectors, barring pharma and media, which may continue to trade subdued in the coming week. At the same time, traders should also focus on managing risk related to breakout failures and sharp gaps against the trend, to avoid a major dent in their accounts. Investors, on the other hand, should see this phase as an opportunity to accumulate quality stocks but in a staggered manner.”-Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd.
“With all the major events behind us, participants will take cues from the global markets, crude and currency market movement. Besides, the scheduled monthly expiry of November month derivatives contracts would keep the traders on their toes.
In the recent recovery, our markets were showing resilience when the global indices especially the US markets were facing the heat. And, they are now largely aligned and we have considerable strength in the prevailing trend. However, we can’t ignore the possibility of further consolidation citing mixed trends across sectors and restricted participation from the index majors. On the index front, we expect Nifty to hold 17,800-18,100 in case of further decline during the consolidation.”-Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd.
Undertone bullish sentiment in the market due to India Vix fell to a 1-year low to below 15, strong tax collection (expected manage to fiscal deficit), strong micro data, fall in oil price, stable USDINR, and hope of favorable Union budget will be positive for the market sentiment. Nifty has formed a small-bodied Bearish candle on the weekly frame and has been forming higher lows from the last seven sessions. Now, it has to hold above 18250 zones, for an up move towards 18444 then 18600 zones whereas supports are placed at 18188 and 18000 zones.
“The Nifty continues to show consolidation movement with weak bias at the highs and still there is no formation of any significant top reversal pattern. Further consolidation or minor weakness from here could find support around 18100 levels and we expect upside bounce from the lows.”- Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities
“A reasonable negative candle was formed on the daily chart with long lower shadow. Technically, this pattern indicates an emergence of buying interest from the lows. Nifty took a support of 10day EMA and also previous opening upside gap of 11th Nov to show upside bounce on Friday. The positive chart pattern like higher tops and bottoms continued on the daily chart and Nifty is currently in line with the formation of new higher bottom formation. Nifty on the weekly chart formed a small negative candle with minor upper and lower shadow. This signal a formation of high wave type candle formation and this reflects high volatility at the highs.”-Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities
“Hawkish commentary from Fed official over continuation of aggressive stance in subsequent meets dented the global sentiments. This week FOMC meeting minutes are due which would provide further cues to the market. Last week though, Nifty shied away from its all-time high, it is hoped that this week, Nifty would scale to those levels. Volatility index too is at 1 year low and at comfortable levels which is supporting the positive sentiments.”-Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services
“Technically, the Nifty is consolidating with a fulcrum at 18300. On an immediate basis, 18200 is a decent support level, whereas 18090–17950 is a critical support zone. On the upside, 18450 is an immediate hurdle; above this, we can expect a rally towards 18611/18888 levels. Bank Nifty is outperforming where 43000 is an immediate psychological hurdle; above this, we can expect a move toward the 44000 level. On the downside, 42000–41650 is a strong demand zone. As per the option statistics, 18400 is an immediate hurdle with the highest open interest on the call side. As the put/call ratio is at 0.89, which is oversold territory, a decisive move above 18400 could result in a short-covering rally. On the other hand, 18300 is the immediate base with the most open interest on the put side, while 18000 is a significant support. The long exposure of FIIs in index futures stands at 65%, which suggests their positive bias.”-Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastika Investmart Ltd.
“Nifty ends almost flat with a minor cut on a week-to-week basis, followed by six straight weeks of gains. The market remained range-bound amid a lack of cues, and it will look for direction ahead of F&O expiry. The good part is that the market is just breathing after a long run-up, and there is a good probability of an upside breakout. However, we are seeing profit booking in a broader market. Apart from F&O expiry, institutional flows will be important, which have dried up in the last couple of trading sessions. On the global front, the minutes of the US FOMC meeting will lead to some volatility in global markets. The movement of the dollar index, US bond yields, and crude oil prices will remain other critical factors to watch out for.”-Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastika Investmart Ltd.
