    Should investors apply for Glenmark Life Sciences IPO amid crackdown in Pharma stocks?

    We have seen a correction in pharma stocks after the Q1FY2022 results and some company-specific issues like that of Dr.Reddy laboratories. Overall large-cap pharma cracked down by 5%-10% in the last 2 trading sessions and midcaps pharma companies holding on to slight gains. Glenmark Life Sciences has a product portfolio related to API’s and that too on the speciality side, company is a leading manufacturer of specialized APIs for chronic therapeutic areas like CVS, CNS. So we don’t expect any major impact on Glenmark Life Sciences IPO due to this melt down in the pharma sector. Glenmark Life has a better return ratio than its peers and IPO has been priced at PE 22.38x and EV/EBITDA of 12.9x which is better than listed peers of the company. We suggest short term investors as well as long term investors to apply for the Glenmark Life Science Limited IPO.As of now IPO is getting very good response from retail as well as NII investors categories, IPO oversubscribed by 4 times as of now.

    What's fueling Bharti Airtel stock?

    Today Bharti Airtel Ltd (BAL) stock is up ~5%. BAL is getting positive momentum in stock due to the company increasing tariffs rate for the postpaid subscriber. The company is increasing tariffs rate for the enterprise segment ( which account for around 60% of  the company’s postpaid users) which would boost overall average ARPU for BAL. Going forward, we expect BAL to report healthy top-line & Bottom-line growth on the back of a strong brand, growth in customer additions, and improvement in ARPU. Hence, we are positive on stock.

    Weakness in Nifty 50 may continue, support now at 15,450

    We witnessed the continuation of the bearish movement in the market in the first half. The market broke an important support level of 15600. If the market sustains below the level of 15600, we can expect the market to continue the bearish movement till it finds the next support near 15450. On the sectoral front, all major sectors have been trading negative. Divislab and Hindunilvr are the top gainers while Dr.Reddy and Cipla are the top losers on Nifty.

    Keep a close watch on 15,450 in Nifty, 33,900 in Bank Nifty

    Nifty has slipped below the important support zone i.e. 15,600 today which also coincides with the support zone of short-term moving average (i.e. 50 EMA) on the daily chart today. Earlier, it was the underperformance of the banking index which was capping the index but now we’re seeing other sectors also witnessing profit-taking since yesterday. We advise maintaining caution at current levels and suggest keeping a close watch on 15,450 in Nifty and 33,900 in banking index as critical support as the breakdown of these levels would induce further decline towards 15,200 in Nifty while the banking index may test 33,300-32,600 zone.

    Nifty violates 50-DMA

    Since the opening of the session, NIFTY Options with July 29 expiry has seen lot of call writing going on. This has dragged the resistance points lower. The strikes of 15700 now holds maximum Call OI. A pullback from the current levels is likely, but if that happens, 15700 will pose great resistance today and tomorrow until the weekly options expiry. From another technical perspective, NIFTY has violated the 50-DMA, as of now intraday, which currently stands at 15652. It would be crucial to see if NIFTY takes support at this level on a closing basis or violates it.

    If Nifty closes below 15636, it may fall to15380 in coming sessions

    Weakness in Asian markets with a sell-off in large-cap stocks especially the pharma sector has triggered a downtrend today in Nifty thus far. Technically, if Nifty closes below 15636, we could be headed towards 15505 & 15380  in the coming sessions. AR Ramachandran, Co-founder & Trainer, Tips2Trades

    11:25 (IST)28 Jul 2021
    Next Nifty support at 15,450

    "A close below 15,632 today would mean more downside coming in Nifty. Best to take one move at a time as volatility is expected to be high. Maintain breasish stance below 15,632," said Rahul Sharma, Direct & Head - Research, JM Financial.

    11:24 (IST)28 Jul 2021
    If Nifty breaches 15600-15650 on closing today, it may fall further

    But if 15600-15650 gets violated, then markets are likely to extend the correction in the coming days. BANKNIFTY is too placed at make or break levels of 34200-33900. The most important space to watch out would be NIFTY MIDCAP 50. Because in last one month, the real action was seen in the broader market and is experiencing some profit booking now. So keep our fingers crossed and hope for some recovery in the latter half to keep the short term uptrend intact. Sameet Chavan Chief Analyst - Technical and Derivative Angel Broking

    Global sell-off weighs Sensex, Nifty

    The global sell off is clearly weighing down heavily on our market since the second half of Tuesday. We first breached the intermediate support of 15800 and now are challenging the crucial support zone of 15550. For us today’s close would be quite crucial and hence we would keep a close eye on 15600-15650 levels. If we manage to reclaim these levels on a closing basis, there is no reason to worry for.

    Nifty short-term support at 15,600

    The index is nearing its short-term support of 15600. If it breaks this on a closing basis, the next pit stop would be 15400 which is a crucial medium-term support. If we break that as well, we might witness a pause to the current uptrend. Traders would then need to re-evaluate the bullish trend of this market. If either of the levels do not break, we will continue remaining range bound between 15400 and 15900. Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

    Nifty 15600-15900 range becomes strong with sustained FII selling

    There is a mild risk-off in equity markets globally as reflected in the rising dollar (dollar index at 92.80 now). The sell-off in Chinese tech stocks on Beijing's regulatory crackdown has triggered concerns about whether this sell-off will spread to other segments. China is too big now. It can cause flutters in global markets. This space needs to be watched cautiously. The Nifty range 15600 - 15900 has become strong with sustained FII selling around 15900 and strong retail & DII buying around 15600. This range is likely to hold for some time.A significant trend in the market now is sectoral shifts. Yesterday there has been across a board selling in pharma stocks.
