Share Market News Today | Sensex, Nifty, Share Prices LIVE: Domestic benchmark indices started Wednesday’s trading session with gains. S&P BSE Sense rallied more than 600 points on opening while Nifty 50 regained 17,100, adding 1% each. Bank Nifty was above 36,000 while broader markets mirrored the up-move. India VIX was down in the red. IndusInd Bank was the top gainer on Sensex, up 3.44%, followed by Tech Mahindra, HDFC, Tata Steel. Only Dr Reddy’s and Power Grid were down in the red.

“Yesterday, Nifty turned lower after briefly penetrating our 17280 marker, and plunged to a fresh intraday low towards yesterday’s close. Though this appears to have added momentum to the 16500 trajectory, many Nifty components ended up with either fully or half formed morning star candlestick patterns. This suggest that the, should Nifty manage to float above 17050-100 region, a relief rally aiming 17385-450 could be on the cards. Alternatively, inability to float above 17050 could negate this view, but a collapse is less likely.”

“While the index has opened with a gap, traders should not be hasty to jump on the long side. The markets have stiff resistance levels on the upside. On the contrary short positions can be strategically timed with strict stops. Since the market has opened with a gap, the risk-reward ratio would be favorable. If the Nifty does not hold 16900, we could drop to 16500,” said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.

“We expect index to undergo a base formation around key support zone of 16900-16700 wherein stock-specific action will prevail. However, for a meaningful pullback to materialise the index needs to decisively close above previous sessions high. Else continuance of lacklustre move amid stock specific action. Thus, dips should be capitalised on to accumulate quality stocks as we do not expect Nifty to breach key support threshold of 16900-16700. Meanwhile, 17600 would continue to act as immediate hurdle being 50 days EMA,” said ICICI Direct.

“Nifty is expected to open with a gap up of 120 points at 17100. Nifty has resistance in 17200-17300 range and support in 16800-16900 range. Nifty is currently in a short term downtrend and traders are suggested to avoid taking new long positions,” Gaurav Udani, CEO & Founder, ThincRedBlu Securities.

“Nifty could not capitalize on the gained made on the previous (Monday) session. It formed an inverted hammer like pattern on daily charts after a fall, suggesting possibility of an upward reversal as long as the lows of 16931 are protected. On the upside 17352 remains a resistance,” said Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research, HDFC Securities.

Going ahead, we expect the market to witness higher volatility in the near term given the uncertainty around the new Omicron variant. As the clarity would emerge over the next few weeks with regards to its transmission, impact on hospitalization, mortality, etc, the market direction would be decided in due course. Till then Travel, Tourism, Hospitality, and Retail are some of the segments which are likely to underperform. Even sectors/stocks exposed to markets with rising COVID-19 cases/greater prevalence of the Omicron variant may underperform. We expect sector rotation to defensives like Pharma, IT, and Consumer till sentiments improve. However, Nifty valuations post-correction at ~20x FY23E EPS is relatively more reasonable now and thus would advise investors to buy in this pullback in a staggered fashion.

On the charts, a small negative candle was formed on the daily chart with a long upper shadow, according to Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities. “The display of lack of strength during upside bounce could hint at a possibility of further weakness down to 16700 levels in the next few sessions. The immediate downside target could be around 16500-16300 levels and this is likely to be achieved in the next 1-2 weeks,” he added.
