    15900 a strong resistance zone for Nifty

    The strongest headwind for the market now is the continuous FII selling (Rs 1659 cr in the cash market yesterday) which is logical in the context of the high valuations. With strong DII buying ( Rs 1277 cr in the cash market yesterday) and over-confident retail activity, FIIs are now in a position to sell aggressively without pulling the markets down significantly. Nifty 15900 level has become a strong resistance zone for the market now. Therefore, more action can be expected in the mid-small-cap space where there is not much FII activity. The package announced by the FM yesterday is more relief than stimulus. It relies more on guarantees to the banks rather than the government directly stimulating the economy through higher public expenditure. Raising the ECLGS limit from Rs 3 lakh crores to Rs 4.5 lakh crores is a nudge to banks to lend more on government guarantees. This can stimulate the economy without impacting the fisc in the short-term. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

    Nifty target at 17,500, Sensex to reach 58,300 as Indian economy picks up pace, says ICICI Direct

    Robust domestic macroeconomics could help NSE Nifty 50 scale 17,500 and take the S&P BSE Sensex to 58,300 as India’s economy recovers from the covid slump, said domestic brokerage firm ICICI Direct. “With the peak of the Covid resurgence behind us, increasing pace of vaccination domestically and calibrated state-specific unlocking underway, we expect economic activity to bounce back sharply in the remaining nine months of the financial year 2021-22,” the brokerage firm said in a report. Benchmark indices have already surged higher helped by strong corporate earnings. The target set for Nifty implies a 10% upside potential from current market levels.

    Rupee to trade in 73.50-74.50 range in near term

    On the flow side, FII seems booking their profit as indices retraced from an all-time-high in the recent days ahead of uncertainty on the COVID variant. This along with RBI’s unexpected move in their forex book towards month-end could call the volatility back in the USDINR pair. Overall, additional fiscal plan, stronger dollar demand and variant concern could pressurize on the Rupee in the near term. Broadly, we are expecting that it will be trading in the range of 73.50 to 74.50 in the near term before the above triggers take it towards 75.00-75.20 levels over the medium term.

    Rupee falls post fiscal stimulus announcement

    The much-awaited fiscal package was unveiled from Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday worth Rs 6.28-trillion focuses on healthcare, tourism, and small borrowers to keep the enterprises afloat in the aftermath of COVID 2.0 by extending the loan guarantee scheme and setting a cap to the borrowing cost. This is expected to provide a boost to the different sectors to stand on their own foot but from a government’s point of view, this will be an additional plan into their fiscal. Thus, given liquidity boosting measures will have a negative impact on the fiscal figure and slippage is likely to remain a big concern. Hence, rather than a welcoming move, we are seeing a slightly depreciating move in the Rupee. Amit Pabari, managing director, CR Forex Advisors

    Gold may remain range bound

    COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1775/oz after a 0.2% gain yesterday. Gold is pressurized by stable US dollar, Fed’s monetary tightening concerns and drop in Chinese imports last month. However, supporting price is renewed virus concerns and mixed economic data from major economies. ETF inflows also showed some buying interest. Gold may remain range bound below $1800/oz until there is more clarity about Fed's monetary policy stance. Ravindra Rao, CMT, EPAT, VP- Head Commodity Research at Kotak Securities
