Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

Domestic indices bounced back on a positive footing from the recent sell-off, due to strong momentum in global markets, favourable domestic economic data and good Q2 results announcement. 

India’s manufacturing PMI increased to 55.9 in October from 53.7 in September as output and new orders improved amid easing Covid restrictions. 

The sustenance of the trend will depend on the views provided by Fed regarding the current easy money policy to be announced on Wednesday.

Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

The Nifty has risen smartly to get past the 17900 level. If we can keep above this level for a couple of trading sessions, the uptrend should resume and take the index higher. 

On the downside, 17550-17600 has become a good support for the markets and until that does not break on a closing basis, it is safe to assume that the trend continues to remain on the upside.

Vijay Dhanotiya, Lead of Technical Research at CapitalVia Global Research:

The market witnessed some swift recovery from the support levels of 17600. Our research suggests, a significant breakout above the levels of 18000 could result in improvement of market breadth and market can rally till the levels of 18250. 

We retain our cautious stance and advise the traders to refrain from building a fresh buying position, until we see further improvement and market sustain above 18000.

S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP securities:

The month began on a volatile note till the bulls wrested the initiative on the back of buoyant PMI data & GST collections for last month. 

Despite the trends in e-way bills pointing towards higher GST collections in October ahead of festive demand, supply constraints in the automotive sector kept the street cautious.
