The three-year reappointment is slightly longer than the usual two-year extension that has been the norm recently. In our view, the reappointment of Governor Das, a former Economic Affairs Secretary and a former member of the finance commission is a sign ofcontinued trust from the government. Under Governor Das, the central bank has done the heavy lifting to support the economy through the COVID crisis, with fiscal policy playing a supportive role. We also view the governor’s reappointment as a vote of confidence in the RBI’s policy stance. Rahul Bajoria, Chief India Economist

The index went into a free fall immediately upon opening. 17600 is the next level of support and if we can hold on to that, there is every possibility that we take a U-turn from here and resume the upside trajectory. On the flip side, if we break 17600 on a closing basis, the Nifty can slide further towards 17200. Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments
COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1798/oz after a 0.2% gain yesterday. Gold has continued to trade in a broad range near $1800/oz as support from weaker US dollar, global growth worries and rising inflation concerns are countered by relative stability in equity markets.

The government asking IRCTC to share a 50% convenience fee with the Railway Ministry is yet another instance that should warn investors of undue optimism while investing in PSU stocks. Enhancing shareholder return is not the objective of PSUs. So investors have to be careful while chasing PSU stocks, even if they are cheap.

Since the market is a bit oversold, we may see some relief move in between; but traders should not get carried away by such rebounds. On the higher side, 18000 – 18100 would now be seen as immediate hurdles and any bounce back towards it, should be used to lighten up longs. On the flip side, we may see this corrective move extending towards 17700 – 17600 – 17450 in the coming days. All eyes are on the banking space going forward because initially it was a saviour and has become the culprit now. So, it would be interesting to see how it moves going ahead, which is likely to dictate the direction for the overall market.
