Biggest hurdle for Nifty at 18,888

“An unexpected bullish day seen at Dalal Street where short covering r value buying ruled the roost. Barring IT, all the other sectoral indices ended in green, with maximum gains seen in Auto & FMCG Indices. All eyes will be on RBI MPC meeting minutes to trickle on Wednesday, 21st December. The street will look for clues with regards to the inflation scenario and RBI's plan of action in the months to come. Technically, the biggest hurdle for the Nifty is seen only in 18,888.”

Expect upward momentum to continue

“The December month so far has been a bit quiet for our markets. Broadly speaking, market is undergoing some time-correction after a strong up move in last 3 odd months. In our sense, 18000-17800 needs to be considered a sacrosanct support and soon, we expect the upward momentum to resume. The way Midcap index is placed, we are likely to see some flamboyant moves in the broader end of the spectrum to conclude 2022 on a high note.”

Rupee at close

“The Indian rupee appreciated along with most regional currencies following the unwinding of the dollar. The dollar index, a basket of six currencies, also fell half a percentage point after last week’s rebound. Looking across asset markets the investor mood seems to be calm ahead of the Christmas holiday. Forex market volatility remains subdued while the risk-assets recovers after the previous week’s sell-off. Back home, spot USDINR is expected to consolidate in the range of 82.40 to 83. The bullish trend will get negated only below 82.10 while the crossing of 83.25 leads to panic buying.”

“The benchmark index Nifty has now sneaked below the key swing low of 18350 on a closing basis. Ideally looking at the price structure, the development does not augur well for the bulls. A close below this support opens the possibility of extended correction in this week. We may be biased, but we are still not convinced with this close. Only a follow through selling may lead to further weakness towards 18130 – 18000 – 17900 in coming sessions. Even if this scenario pans out, we do not expect the correction to aggravate below the lower end of this support range. The higher degree up trend remains intact as long as we manage to hold this. Since market was deeply overbought, we must consider this as a running correction. On the flipside, 18450 – 18600 are to be treated as immediate hurdles.”

Nifty outlook

“An inverted hammer formed on Friday, signals the prospects of a reversal today. We will play this by staying neutral to bearish if in the 18,270-195 region, but aim to add longs with push above 18,350, aiming 18,440 initially or 18,570-630. There is no visibility past the same as is. Alternatively, inability to clear 18,350 or 18,440 today would encourage us to revert to the 17,900 move.”

IT may show fears, US inflation declining, credit growth strong

“The synchronised rate hikes by the leading central banks of the world and their hawkish tone impacted market sentiments last week with Nifty closing below the near-term support of 18400. While this risk-off can continue to impact the market, there are positive triggers too, like steadily declining inflation in the U.S. and the hope that the Fed will respond to this with a pause in rate hikes in early 2023. Leading indicators point to a resilient Indian economy. Credit growth continues to be strong and this can impart strength to the Bank Index. High quality bank stocks can be bought on declines. IT may show weakness on fears of a US recession but this weakness can be an opportunity for long-term investors. Capital goods segment is on a strong wicket.”

US dollar rising, could trigger FII selling as rupee weakens

Domestic equities may see a steady positive opening on Monday despite weakness seen in other Asian market peers. However, the markets may turn volatile intraday if weakness persists in Asian and European indices, as investors have been risk averse in the wake of the US Fed Chairman delivering a hawkish stance on interest rates last week. With the US Dollar once again beginning to ascend against major currencies, including the rupee, any further depreciation in the local currency could trigger further FII selling.

Bulls to pull Nifty above 18400 or profit-booking to continue?

Markets are likely to remain in consolidative range due to lack of triggers in the near term. Also, lower participation from institutional investors due to upcoming year-end holidays would keep the markets lackluster. Though investors would keep eye on US home sales and GDP (QoQ) numbers to be released this week. On the sectoral front, sugar stocks are likely to remain in the limelight after news reported that government might consider increasing sugar export quota for the current 2022-23. However, some selling might be seen in banking stock especially in PSU banks on account of profit booking after the sharp rally in the last few months,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services
