    New spike in COVID cases too dragged Sensex, Nifty

    Market falls below the crucial support levels of 17950-18000 as the global markets saw the negativity in the market sentiments. European markets were down with the expectations of monetary policy tightening as the inflation keeps rising. Spike in new cases of covid infections also acted as a reminder that the pandemic is far from over which led to the addition of negativity in the market.

    If Nifty falls below 17800, if may hit 17600

    We witnessed the continuation in the correction in the market after the market failed to hold the Nifty 50 Index level of 18200 and then 18000 consecutively. Our research shows that it is going to be crucial for the short-term market scenario to sustain above the 17800 Nifty50 Index support zone. If the market is unable to sustain the level of 17800, we can witness lower levels of 17600. Technical indicator suggests, a volatile movement in the market.

    Key factors behind today's fall in Sensex, Nifty

    Relentless selling by FIIs is a key reason for this correction in the market. Today, Morgan Stanley downgrades India to equal weight due to outperformance by Indian markets in recent months. Inflation and slowdown in global growth momentum are other concerns amid expensive valuations. The rise in fresh covid cases in some of the countries is also disturbing the mood of the investors. We are in a structural bull market where intermediate corrections will be a part of this journey and these kinds of corrections will provide good buying opportunities in quality stocks.

    Sensex, Nifty witness heavy sell-off on F&O expiry day

    Domestic equities witnessed heavy sell-off today with high volatility mainly led by sharp correction in heavyweight financials and IT, which wiped out Rs 4.5 lakh crore from investors' wealth. Notably, all key sectoral indices fell sharply today, while Nifty PSU Bank has fallen over 4%. In our view, in addition to weak global cues, the unwinding of long positions especially in financials on F&O expiry, which had seen sharp rally in recent period were the prime reasons for sharp market correction today.

    Long term investors may subscribe to Policybazaar IPO

    With strong brand equity, PB Fintech commands a stellar 93.4% market share in its digital insurance marketplace Policy Bazaar and 51.4% in its digital consumer credit marketplace Paisabazaar. The company has delivered a notable 34% CAGR in its revenues and although it has expanded its contribution margin considerably from 8.6% to 39.8% over FY19 to FY21, it remains EBITDA negative. Considering the intensifying competition in the sector and certain larger players delisting their products from the platform, the key challenge for the company lies in shielding its market share and consistently scaling its revenue. Speaking about the valuation, the company is seeking a market cap of around 2.5 times of its last funding round in March’21. While the Insurance broker's license and the minimal online insurance penetration in India provide the company massive long-term opportunities to grow, the current valuation seems pretty expensive. Hence, only investors with a longer time horizon, larger risk tolerance and the patience to wait for the company's return ratios to improve should subscribe.

    Nykaa IPO: Should you invest?

    With a diverse assortment of beauty, personal care and fashion products, Nykaa’s supremacy lies in its ability to retain and attract customers. Nykaa has witnessed sustained growth in GMV over the years and has the highest AOV. Its robust technology and content engine, focus on capital efficiency and positive unit economics coupled with immense headroom for penetration, provide the company a long runway for growth. The dearth of PAT positive new-age companies in India and its first-mover advantage augurs well enabling Nykaa to command higher premium. We believe the company is capable of improving its financial metrics and cementing its position going forward and hence recommend investors to Subscribe to the issue.

This is in contrast to just around Rs 18,500 crore raised for the 10 months last year. CARE Ratings

    Nifty unlikely to show any weakness if it remains above 17950-18000

    The Nifty 50 index has clearly defined a trading zone of 18000-18600 levels for itself; presently it has been defending the key supports so far. As per the pattern analysis of the charts, so long as NIFTY is above to defend the zone of 17950-18000 it is unlikely to show any major weakness and the dips may keep getting bought. Today there can be an exception to this behavior given the expiry-influenced trends. However, NIFTY will stay stable so long as it defends the zone mentioned here. It will invite weakness only if this zone is violated on a closing basis. Milan Vaishnav, CMT, MSTA, Consulting Technical Analyst and founder, Gemstone Equity Research & Advisory Services

    New COVID variant drags Sensex, Nifty

    Q2 results, so far, shows a sharp turnaround in India Inc's profitability, and the present demand conditions indicate a continuation of this positive trend. However, in the coming days, the primary market with its keenly watched IPOs is likely to be the centre of attraction. The Nykaa and Paytm IPOs totalling around Rs 24000 cr are likely to witness enthusiastic investor response and this will drain away some liquidity from the secondary market. This may keep the secondary market rather subdued, but sharp reactions to results will lead to volatility in individual stocks.On the flip side, the new Covid variant AY 4.2 has emerged as a new concern. China imposing price curbs on coal will have implications for global coal and metal prices. This can restrain the rally in metal stocks, which has been the best performing segment of the market in this rally. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

    Nifty support at 17950; faces resistance at 18350

    Indian equity benchmarks made a negative start on Thursday tracking weakness in global peers. Markets quickly extended their losses and are now trading lower, with each market losing more than half a percent in early trade. The domestic indices were weighed down by selling on almost all sector indices, with the exception of Capital Goods. Traders were wary since the October F&O series contract was set to expire later in the day. Our research suggests that 18350 may act as resistance point for short period and 17950 an important support level in the market. If the market breaches the level of 18350, we can expect the market to trade till the level of 18400-18500. Technical Indicators also support positivity in the market.

    Nifty support at now 17900

    The index has a stiff resistance at 18350 and that has been proved a couple of times over the last few sessions. The Nifty has a good support around the 17900-18000 levels. As long as that holds, the trend remains positive. But if we are unable to break this level and do not surpass 18350 either, the markets are going to trade sideways. Therefore it is advised not to consider any directional call on the index until either level is taken out. Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments
