    Brokerage view on ICICI Bank stock

    ICICI remains our top pick, given its consistent outperformance across business/financial parameters, higher retail/digital orientation, strong capital/provision buffers, and management stability/credibility (missing in some large private peers).

    Shiba Inu rallies 50%, becomes 11th-biggest cryptocurrency coin by market value

    Shibu Inu (SHIB) is a coin that aims to be an ethereum based replacement to Dogecoin, the very popular memecoin. Bitcoin is designed to be scarce whereas SHIB is intentionally made in a way that is abundant in nature. The total circulating supply of it is 1 quadrillion. The Shiba Inu token system supports innovative and artistic projects like NFT art incubators. The development of its own decentralized exchange called the ShibaSwap is also in the pipeline, all factors which have been driving the tokens value and interest among traders. Even though Doge is the oldest memecoin, and still ranks higher in terms of market capitalization, SHIB is making a place for itself currently ranking at 13 with a market capitalization of $15.5bn. The meme crypto designed on the Ethereum blockchain was trading at $ 0.00004174 and has appreciated by over 40% in the last 24 hours. The token undertook a bullish price trajectory from 15 October and noted higher highs until it reached its ATH at $0.00004450. In addition to that, the surge in volumes that the token has been witnessing can also be attributed to the FOMO that typically arises—as interest peaks, and traders rush to take part in the rally as a means to book profits.

    Subscribe to Nykaa IPO for listing gains

    Nykaa is one of the leading platforms in the beauty, personal care & fashion segments with good fundamentals. With e-commerce only set to grow rapidly in India, we recommend that investors must subscribe to this IPO but only for listing gains. This is because valuation metrics like PE ratio are extremely high even though it is one of the few profitable startups. Post-IPO, a decent correction of at least 15-20% should be used to re-enter again. Pavitraa Shetty, Co-founder & Trainer, Tips2Trades

    Diwali 2021: Bank Nifty to cross 42,000 before Diwali; watch out for these things in Samvat 2078

    Nifty 50 has toppled around 3%, last week, from all-time highs which should be considered a healthy correction. In bull markets like these, a 3-5% correction is healthy for the long-term uptrend of the market. I expect the markets to be sideways in the coming few weeks with negative bias. However, Bank Nifty might perform well in the coming weeks as it has settled well above 40,000. Also, the quarterly results by leading banks look impressive which should provide good momentum to Bank Nifty. I am expecting Bank Nifty to cross the 42,000 mark before this Diwali. We have seen profit booking in selective tech stocks, auto sector and metal counters. Long-term investors should consider any such opportunity to accumulate quality mid-caps and large caps to their portfolio.

The manufacturing business outlook of Philadelphia fell a reading of 23.8 in October, down from its September reading of 30.7. The report along with festive demand in India made the gold prices highly volatile on last Friday.

    Gold continues to struggle to sustain above $1800/oz

    COMEX gold trades little changed near $1795/oz after a 1.6% gain last week. Gold remains supported by weaker US dollar, retreat in bond yields, increasing inflation concerns, renewed virus concerns and mixed economic data from major economies. However, weighing on price is lack of investor buying, strength in equity markets and increasing expectations of Fed’s monetary tightening. Gold continues to struggle to sustain above the $1800/oz level which shows lack of confidence however with increasing challenges to global economy, prices may remain supported.

    Nifty could fall to 17700

    The markets are struggling at the psychological level of 18000. Despite opening at above 18200, the index failed to sustain and dropped within a few minutes. If we can keep above 18000 on a closing basis, it would be a positive sign. However, if we break that level, the sentiments in the short term would get jittery and the Nifty could slide down further towards 17700-17800.

    USD-INR expected to remain in 74.50-75.20 range

    RBI has been succeeded to keep inflation within the band until now, but the looming energy crisis and higher assumption of the oil prices (pointed in the monthly bulletin) could be worrisome for the market and so for the Rupee. Over a short-term basis, retracement in the energy prices and metal prices could support the Indian rupee, but rising US yield and unfavorable corporate results could become headwinds. Broadly, the USDINR pair is expected to remain in a range of 74.50-75.20 until major triggers take it towards 75.50-76.00 over the medium term. Amit Pabari, managing director, CR Forex Advisors

    Nifty resistance placed at 18600, Bank Nifty eyes 41600 now; charts show SBI, Axis Bank, Tata Motors may rally

    Going ahead, we expect buying demand to emerge in the 18000-17800 range as we do not expect the key support threshold of 17800 to be breached. Key point to highlight during the ongoing corrective phase is that the index has been retracing recent sharp up moves as it filled the three positive gaps seen during last week. We believe such price action would make the market healthier. The ongoing sectoral churn, pricing in the Q2FY22 earnings which is a healthy sign for structural up trend, wherein Banking, capital goods and realty continued to relatively outperform.
