    Dalal Street valuations stretched?

    "The Indian equity market has outperformed major equity indices in 2021 so far. The spectacular gains have raised concerns over overstretched valuations with a number of global financial service firms turning cautious on Indian equities. Traditional valuation metrics like price-tobook value ratio, price-to-earnings ratio and market capitalisation to GDP ratio stayed above their historical averages. The yield gap (difference between 10-year G-sec yield and 12-month forward earnings yield of BSE Sensex) at 2.47% has far outstripped its historical long-term average of 1.65%," said Reserve Bank of India.

    10-year paper to remain in 6.3-6.4% range

     Bond markets opened the week with a positive bias aided by government’s surprise announcement of excise duty cuts in the previous week and benign global cues in the early part of the week. Mid-last week, the US 10-year yield inched lower by nearly 20bps from the previous week’s high of 1.60%. However, the higher than expected US CPI inflation along with the multi-decade high PPI inflation in China and Japan provided jitters to market sentiments. The US 10-year bonds completely erased the earlier gains with the yield inching higher towards 1.59% before easing marginally. Accordingly, the 10-year inched higher by ~8bps from the week’s low of 6.29% to end near 6.37%. We expect the 10-year paper to remain in the 6.30-6.40% in the near term.

    Nifty to scale 18440 by end of the week?

    "Yesterday’s opening gains were too large to sustain, but the pull back thereof as well as the bounce of 18071, appear to have placed the trend in a better position to leap into the 18240-440 region, by end of this week. Until this region is seen we will continue to have 18000 as the downside marker."

    18200 to act as immediate hurdle for Nifty

    "Since Nifty remained in a slender range, levels are more or less unchanged.

    Further upsides likely once immediate resistances at 18240 taken out

    From an options perspective, significant Put addition was observed at 18000 Put strike for the coming weekly settlement. A move below these levels may trigger another round of downside in the coming week. However, if the Nifty sustains above 18100, it may continue its positive trend towards 18400 in the coming sessions.

    For the coming session, the trading spot band is between 18240 and 18040, which means further upsides are likely once the immediate resistances of 18240 are taken out and weakness could emerge if the supports of 18040 are broken.

    Nifty in for range-bound movement

    We observe a smaller degree of higher highs and higher lows on the daily chart. Monday's swing high of 18210 seems to be at the new higher high of the sequence. The current chart pattern needs to be confirmed with minor reversal to expect downward correction in the short term. A sustainable move above 18200 levels could pull Nifty towards the next hurdle of 18350 levels. Conclusion: The short term uptrend of Nifty remains intact and the present range bound action is not confirming any reversal from the highs as of now. There is a possibility of 1-2 day's of range movement before showing any upside breakout of 18200 levels. Immediate support is placed at 18020 levels.
