The Nifty has risen smartly to get past the 17900 level. If we can keep above this level for a couple of trading sessions, the uptrend should resume and take the index higher. On the downside, 17550-17600 has become a good support for the markets and until that does not break on a closing basis, it is safe to assume that the trend continues to remain on the upside.

“A pull back is in order, aiming 17833 initially but Nifty does not look primed for a vertical rise. While a push towards 17966- 18020, may be expected, the 18170-400 region appears could again prompt a distribution and aim for 17350, our downside objective that has been in play for a fortnight now. Meanwhile, a direct fall below 17600 today may not lead to a collapse, but in turn, lead to a consolidation in the 17500-350 band in the next few days, which could improve the chances of a sustainable uptrend.”

“The market went through a minor correction of above 3% in the Nifty during the last two trading days. The sell-off in the broader market was steeper with Nifty Midcap Index correcting 8% from the peak. The trigger for the correction  has been the sustained FII selling during the last 9 trading days following the downgrading of India by some leading foreign brokerages like UBS and Nomura who are concerned about excessive valuations. The depository data shows FII selling in equity at Rs 13550 cr, the highest for a month, so far, in 2021. The massive FII selling appears to have overwhelmed the newbie retail investors who have been merrily buying every dip. An important factor that might influence the market is the new IPOs hitting the market this week. Heavy oversubscriptions in attractive IPOs are draining money from the secondary market. So, FII selling and IPOs have emerged as headwinds for the market in the short-term. Investors may wait for the market to consolidate before taking fresh investment decisions,” said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

The Indian equity market finally seems to be witnessing the much-awaited correction, although the headline index is getting some support from the healthy performance of the financials. However, this is masking the weakness in the broader market, especially in the midcap and small cap space.

The broader markets, however, had continued to do quite well, with expectations running quite high, leading to some froth getting built up.
