Prashanth Tapse, Vice President (Research), Mehta Equities:

Markets could be in for a bearish start, tracking overnight slump in US markets and subsequent fall in the SGX Nifty. Deteriorating macro sentiments such as soaring inflation, recession fears, and the prospect of the Federal Reserve getting even more hawkish will continue keep benchmarks on the edge. 

Another main reason for the pessimism can be attributed to relentless selling from the FII camp. FIIs continue to be net sellers for the 8th straight month since October 2021. They have sold shares worth Rs 37,937 crore in the month of May so far. 

Technically, the sell-off on Dalal Street will gain steam if Nifty slips below 15971 mark. Below the same, the index could swiftly slip to 15671 mark. Bulls have a chance to fight only above the 16411 mark.
