“When there is a fight between the DM and EM currencies $-rupee remains in a range and that is what we are seeing at the moment. When EM currencies break the range then we should see the breaking out mostly to the upside. For the day opening around 74.45 with a biddish bias. Flows of corporates could Hit but outflows will also be there so a range of 74.20 to 74.60 seems appropriate. Exporters may sell near term at 74.60 levels snd importers to buy any dips towards 74.20/30,” said Anil Kumar Bhansali, Head of Treasury, Finrex Treasury Advisors.

“In the ongoing truncated week, we expect index (Bank Nifty) to continue with its healthy consolidation in the broad range of 38200 – 40000. We believe the current breather should not be seen as negative instead it should be capitalized to accumulate quality banking stocks for the next leg of up move. Buying on dips strategy has worked well on multiple occasions in the last 18 months,” said ICICI Direct.

“The absence of faster pace of retracement on either side indicates extended consolidation in the range of 18200-17700 range which would offer incremental buying opportunity as index approaches price/time wise maturity of correction,” said ICICI Direct.

Dalal Street benchmark indices moved between gains and losses on the opening bell. Broader markets were trading mixed. Bank Nifty was down in the red. 

“Nifty finds support around 17908 while 18250 will act as resistance. Bank Nifty finds support around 38500 while 39200 will act as resistance on the upside,” said IIFL Securities.

Sensex gained 36 points in the pre-open session while Nifty 50 added 17 points.

In the coming session, the index is likely to open on a positive note tracking positive Asian cues. We expect index to trade with a positive bias while sustaining above intraday support of 18050. Hence, use dip towards 18110-18145 for creating long position for target of 18227.

“Nifty range now stands at 18,000 – 18,200 and any attempt to breach either of the levels should bring a good directional move. Bank Nifty range seen at 38,650-39,100,” said Rahul Sharma, Director & Head – Research JM Financial.

Sensex gains in pre-open session, nears 60,900 while Nifty 50 was in the red, giving up 18,000 levels.

Share Market News Today | Sensex, Nifty, Share Prices LIVE: Domestic stock markets may look to continue their positive momentum on Tuesday, after having inched higher during the previous trading session. Midcap and smallcap indices outperformed benchmark indices while Bank Nifty closed with losses. India VIX surged higher. On Tuesday morning, SGX Nifty was up 34 points, hinting at a flat to positive start to the day’s trade. Meanwhile, cues from global peers were mixed after Wall Street equity indices closed in the red, with marginal losses but Asian stock markets were up with gains. Shanghai Composite, Hang Seng, Kospi, KOSDAQ, TOPIX, and Nikkei 225 were all in the green.


From an options perspective, significant Put addition was observed at 18000 Put strike for the coming weekly settlement. A move below these levels may trigger another round of downside in the coming week. However, if the Nifty sustains above 18100, it may continue its positive trend towards 18400 in the coming sessions.

For the coming session, the trading spot band is between 18240 and 18040, which means further upsides are likely once the immediate resistances of 18240 are taken out and weakness could emerge if the supports of 18040 are broken.

SGX Nifty was up 50 points ahead of the day’s trade, hinting at a positive start to the day’s trade.

We observe a smaller degree of higher highs and higher lows on the daily chart. Monday’s swing high of 18210 seems to be at the new higher high of the sequence. The current chart pattern needs to be confirmed with minor reversal to expect downward correction in the short term. A sustainable move above 18200 levels could pull Nifty towards the next hurdle of 18350 levels. Conclusion: The short term uptrend of Nifty remains intact and the present range bound action is not confirming any reversal from the highs as of now. There is a possibility of 1-2 day’s of range movement before showing any upside breakout of 18200 levels. Immediate support is placed at 18020 levels.
