Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:
The ongoing domestic rally is supported by falling crude & commodity prices uplifting corporates earnings outlook. However, the future medium-term performance is a point of concern due to supreme valuation. Falling raw material cost, better GDP growth and lower inflation are helping to sustain the current outperformance.
Ajit Mishra, VP – Technical Research, Religare Broking:
Markets extended gains for yet another session and rose nearly half a percent. After the flat start, the Nifty index gradually inched higher however profit taking in the latter half trimmed the gains. Finally, it ended at 18,618.05; up by 0.3%.
Meanwhile, the sectoral indices traded mixed wherein FMCG and metal posted healthy gains. The broader indices underperformed the benchmark and shed over half a percent each.
Markets have been maintaining a positive tone, thanks to rotational buying in index majors. However, mixed global cues and the existence of a hurdle around 18700 in Nifty may cap the upside and trigger some consolidation too. Apart from banking and IT, we’re seeing buying interest emerging in the defensive pack viz. FMCG and selectively in pharma. Traders should align their positions accordingly.

While the winning streak continued and key benchmarks scaled new highs, investors traded with caution in a slightly volatile market. There are worries about growing protests in China over the imposition of strict lockdowns, which markets fear could hurt the already slowing global economy. If the situation doesn’t improve, this could impact the market.
But since India is in a slightly better position compared to other major economies, investors are willing to bet big on us.
Technically, the market is consistently holding higher high and higher low formation which is broadly positive. Hence, the support has now shifted to 18,550 from 18,450. As long as the index is trading above 18,550, the uptrend wave is likely to continue. Above which, the market could move up to 18,750-18,800.
