“Going forward, investors have to be little watchful as more Omicron cases had been detected in India and the recent news flow around the variant will contribute to equity market volatility in the coming weeks. Inflation is the second risk the markets will have to deal with. Any disruption in supply chains because of Omicron may further exacerbate inflationary pressures. Tata Motors can be in focus today as the company increased the price of it’s commercial vehicle effective from beginning of next year. On the technical front, the key resistance levels for Nifty50 are 17100 followed by 17450 and on the downside 16800 followed by 17620 can act as strong support. Key resistance and support levels for Bank Nifty are 36500 and 35350 respectively,” said Mohit Nigam, Head – PMS, Hem Securities.

“Yesterday’s high (17217) could turn out as an immediate hurdle zone and sustenance below for the same is likely to keep the near term outlook negative. Most of the Nifty stocks are going through the corrective phase as their 14-day RSI reading is seen below levels of 70.”

“Nifty is expected to open positive at 17000 levels. Nifty has resistance at 17085 and 17200 levels.  Since the last few sessions Nifty has been making lower highs and lower lows indicating a weak trend.  Traders are advised to keep strict stoploss in current volatile markets,” said Gaurav Udani, Founder and CEO of ThincRedBlu Securities.

“Nifty needs to reclaim 17000 as soon as possible for any chance of recovery or else we may see the panic low of last Monday, 16782, being re-tested. Bank Nifty is structurally less weak with supports at 35,530 and 35,327,” said Rahul Sharma, Director & Head – reserch, JM Financial.

“Now as we had alluded to in the recent commentary, last week’s low around 16800 is to be challenged soon and we are not far away from this now. It would be interesting to see how market behaves going forward. Whether bears have further legs to break this support or the bulls have enough strength to defend it. If we compromise this level of 16800 in the coming session, one should get prepared for an extended fall towards 16600 – 16400 in coming sessions. On the flipside, 17000 followed by 17100 are to be seen as immediate supports. The banking index plays a vital role here because its back to its ‘200-SMA’ and hence, one needs to keep a close on it in the forthcoming session,” said Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One.

“The markets continued its downward trajectory and has threatened the 16900 level. The index is heading towards the recent low of 16750-16780. If we break that, the Nifty can fall to 16400-16450,” said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.

On the charts, two consecutive deep-dives by Nifty are being seen as a negative for bulls. The index formed a long bear candle on the daily chart, which indicate a sharp downward reversal in the market after a decent upside bounce of last week, according to Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities. “The sharp downward reversal of the last two sessions after a decent pullback rally could open further decline down to 16700 or lower in the next few sessions,” he added. On the fundamental side, investors should get some relief as the Omicron variant does not seem to have increased hospitalizations across the countries it has entered so far. Analysts still recommend stock-specific action while markets trade on choppy waters.

“Nifty continues its downtrend and the next level of support is 16722-16782 band. On upmoves 17026-17051 could act as a resistance. The downtrend may be close to its end going by the number of days it has lasted so far (33). However, the upward recovery may be slow,” said Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research, HDFC Securities.

SGX Nifty was up in the green on Tuesday morning. Nifty futures soared 80 points, hitting a positive start to the day’s trade.
