Markets extended rebound for the second consecutive session and gained nearly 2%, tracking firm global cues. After the upbeat start, the benchmark moved from strength to strength for most of the day however marginal selling in the last hour trimmed some gains. Consequently, the Nifty ended with gains of 1.9% at 15,638 levels.
All the sectors participated in the move wherein media, PSU banks and metals gained maximum. The broader indices, Midcap and Smallcap, too ended higher and gained over 3.5% each.
This move has certainly eased some pressure but sustainability is the key. Participants are keenly eyeing the US Fed chair’s speech for cues and the progress of the monsoon is also on the radar.
A decisive move above 15,700 in Nifty can further fuel the rebound to the 16,000 zone else the decline would resume. Stocks, on the other hand, are offering opportunities on both sides, so traders should plan accordingly.

USDINR spot closed 9 paise higher at 78.09, thanks to importer hedging and oil demand. Over the near term we expect USDINR to trade within a range of 77.80 and 78.40 with an upward bias.
With forward premium on a % of spot trading at 11 year lows, there will be more of importer demand and less of exporter selling. Carry traders may be disincentivized due such low premium.

With no negative clues in the market, benchmark indices gained for the second straight day on Tuesday. Metal, state-owned banks and technology stocks witnessed bargain hunting after suffering heavy losses last week on fears that aggressive rate hikes.
On daily charts, the Nifty has formed a promising bullish candle which supports a further uptrend from the current levels. However, the medium-term trend is still on the weak side.
For the traders, the support has shifted to 15,500 from 15,250 on the Nifty (and from 51,300 to 52,000 on BSE). As long as, the Nifty is trading above 15,500, the chances of hitting 15,750 would turn bright. Further upside may also continue, which could lift the Nifty up to 15,850.

Domestic indices were positive for second consecutive day. Nifty opened gap up and continued to gain strength throughout the day to close with handsome gains of 1.9% at 15639. Broader market too turned positive and closed with gains of more than 3% after witnessing relentless selling in Monday’s session. All sectorial indices saw renewed buying with Media, Oil & Gas, PSU Banks, Metals, IT, Consumer Durables and Realty 3-5% each.
Global markets made a comeback after last week’s intense selling. Although investors remained cautious as major central banks around the world raised interest rates.
Markets witnessed the much needed relief rally today after posting the worst weekly loss in 2 years. Positive global cues, fall in crude oil prices and short covering in derivatives segment drove the markets.
Further, value buying in beaten down sectors also helped market to gain some momentum today. Globally equity markets continue to remain worried over the expected aggressive rate hikes by central banks to curb record inflation and its impact on economic growth.
However, on the positive side, crude prices have corrected by almost 10% from its recent peak, providing some breather to the Indian market. While the overall market set up continues to remain ‘Sell on rise’ – intermittent bouts of relief rally can’t be ruled out. Given the hawkish commentaries from Central banks and record high inflation, rate hike cycle is likely to continue over the next couple of months and would keep markets jittery.
Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:
Absence of fresh selling triggers in the domestic and global economy along with falling commodity prices relieved the heavily discounted equity market to showcase recovery.
The recovery indicates that the current uncertainties of inflation and monetary policy tightening have been factored in. However, with the highly sensitive nature of the current equity market, even the slightest inconvenience can trigger volatility.
Indian rupee ended 10 paise lower at 78.08 per dollar on Tuesday against Monday’s close of 77.98.
