Share Market News Today | Sensex, Nifty, Share Prices LIVE: Domestic equity markets were deep down in red on Monday, as bears took over benchmark indices. S&P BSE Sensex tanked more than 1,100 points giving up 58,500 while NSE Nifty 50 was shy of 17,500. Bank Nifty was down 2%, just below 37,200. Broader markets mirrored the fall. India VIX was up 14%, nearing 17 levels. Reliance Industries was down 3.2% as the worst Sensex performer, followed by Bajaj Finance, Kotak Bank, and Maruti Suzuki India. On the other hand, Bharti Airtel was up 5% as the top gainer, followed by Asian Paints, Power Grid, and IndusInd Bank.

Domestic benchmark indices closed deep in red on Monday amid a fierce bear attack on Dalal Street. Sensex and Nifty closed almost 2% lower each while Bank Nifty ended 2.23% down. Bank Nifty closed 17.90% higher.

Mid-cap and Small-cap indices were down deep in red on Monday as Dalal Street inches closer to the end of today’s trade. 

Volatility was moving higher as India VIX was up 17% on Monday with less than half an hour left to the closing bell. 

India Bank was among the top laggards on S&P BSE 500, falling 9.98% to hit the lower circuit. Brigade Enterprises, Jai Corp, Jamna Auto, and Navin Fluorine International were the other drags.

Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries Limited called off its deal with Saudi Aramco last week, after having missed out on two self-imposed deadlines. With RIL having shelved the 20% stake sale in the oil to the chemical unit (O2C), the stock came under selling pressure on Monday, falling more than 4% to hit an intra-day low of Rs 2,356 per share. Analysts have mixed views on what impact the cancellation of the O2C stake sale would have on RIL stock performance. While analysts at foreign brokerage firm Jefferies have reduced the target price, those at Kotak Securities, Credit Suisse, and Prabhudas Lilladher have maintained their previous price targets.

Dalal Street was witnessing a bloodbath on Monday as Sensex and Nifty tanked more than 2.2% each. 

“Short build up in the Nifty futures, short build up in the Bank Nifty Futures, Call writing at 17900 – 18000 levels and Short build up by FII’s in the index future segment indicates that one should be cautious for the markets. Therefore, our advice is to hold short with the stop loss of 17900 levels. On the lower side, 17700-17600 levels will act as strong support.”

Nifty gave up 17400 for a brief period on Monday before recovering to trade above the said levels. Bears were in control on Dalal Street.

Unless the Nifty moves back above 17,850, it will continue to trade weak with a corrective undertone. Stay selective, avoid building large leveraged positions on either side

“Over past 18 months, Price-wise Nifty has maintained the rhythm of not correcting for more than 7-9% while holding its 50 days EMA and timewise intermediate corrections have got arrested within four to five weeks, barring one instance. As index has already corrected 5.5% over past four weeks, we expect index to hold 17500 and attract incremental buying demand as larger structural uptrend remains intact. Hence, dips should be capitalised on to accumulate quality stocks. Sectorally, Capital goods, Telecom, Auto are expected to outperform while BFSI provide favourable risk-reward setup. Pullbacks in Metal space are expected to be short lived,” said ICICI Direct.

Only four Sensex stocks were trading with gains while the rest 26 shares were down with losses. Bharti Airtel was the top Sensex gainer, up 3%, followed by Asian paints, Power Grid, and TCS.

A sustainable move below 17700 (which seems likely) would activate the pattern and as a result of this, we could see a fresh leg of correction in coming days. After this, next levels to watch out for would be 17450 and 17200, where one needs to reassess the situation. On the flipside, if Nifty manages to hold 17700 and move higher first, then 18000 – 18200 are to be considered as strong hurdles, which as of now we do not expect to get surpassed in the near future. The major culprit during the last week’s correction was the continuous weakness in banking and metal counters. Although the banking index is nearing its strong support zone, we do not expect any major bounce back in this space.

Sensex was still deep in red but above its intraday low of 58,465. Nifty 50 was still shy of 17,500.

‘10% Correction from the top of 18,600 should take us near 16,800. Derivatives Support of 17,500 broken today. Expect 17,000-16,800 shortly unless we see any signs of recovery in second half today. Maintained Bearish Stance once we broke 17,991. Stay Light/Stay selective until volatility cools down. Technically, this looks like a correction and not a full-blown Bear Market,’ said Rahul Sharma, Director & Head – Research, JM Financial.

S&P BSE Sensex may hit 80,000 by December 2022 helped by a likely new profit cycle, said foreign brokerage and research firm Morgan Stanley. The brokerage firm believes 80,000 is achievable for Sensex in a bull-case scenario, where India would see nearly $20 billion inflows on the back of inclusion in global bond indices. Morgan Stanley said that India remains entrenched in a long-term bull market and that positives outweigh the risks for those willing to take a slightly longer-term view. The positive outlook for Dalal Street comes nearly a month after Morgan Stanley downgraded Indian equities to equal weight.

Thursday’s second half saw almost all of the day’s gains being wiped off, prompting a neutral start to today. If able to float above 17760, Nifty could see revival in upside hopes, but limited to a modest objective of 18000 initially, this week. But unlike last week, when we placed low bets on a break of 17650/600, we are now too close to the key level, to not factor in a vertical drop. A break of 17600, could trigger a 16500 move, but we hope that the 17350-17166 region will help bulls to regroup.

The index has a resistance at 18100-18200 and unless we do not get past that, the trend of the markets will remain sideways to negative,” said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.

“On the domestic front, India’s WPI in October spiked to 12.54% from 10.66% in September owing to the rise in prices of crude petroleum and manufactured products. Similarly, India’s CPI rose to 4.48% from 4.35% led by a surge in food prices. The weak listing of India’s largest IPO, Paytm, further impacted domestic sentiment. Foreign investors remained net sellers during the week while domestic institutional investors continued their buying spree. Going forward, rising inflationary pressure will continue to haunt global markets as fears of rate hikes will pump out liquidity from emerging markets like India.”
