Share Market News Today | Sensex, Nifty, Share Prices LIVE: Domestic equity markets began trading in the green on Monday morning, looking to recover some of last week’s losses. S&P BSE Sensex was above 59,600 while Nifty 50 was above 17,800. Broader market were mirroring the up-move and India VIX was up in the green. Bank Nifty was up 0.62% above 39,300 points. Tata Steel and Bharti Airtel were the top gainers on Sensex, up more than 2% each. Bajaj Finserv, Mahindra and Mahindra, and Nestle were the top laggards, falling more than 1% each. 

IPO market will witness heavy action this week as 3 new public issues open for subscription. Along with the new IPOs, Nykaa’s issue will close today after witnessing strong interest from investors, who oversubscribed the IPO on the first day of sale. Policybazaar, SJS Enterprises, and Sigachi Industries are the three new IPOs opening for subscription today and will close on Wednesday. 

We expect buying demand to emerge around the key support threshold of 17500 in the upcoming truncated week and undergo a higher base formation that would make market healthy after a 20% rally seen over the past three months. Such intermediate episodes of breather make larger sutural up trend healthy as seen in previous bull markets. Thereby, the ongoing corrective phase should not be construed as negative, instead dips should be capitalized to build a quality portfolio over the medium term.

“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.

“On the technical front, Nifty 50 is currently trading at a very good support zone near 17,500 -17,700 and we believe markets may show some good recovery from these levels. the 18,000 level is an immediate hurdle on upside for Nifty 50,” said Mohit Nigam, Head – PMS, Hem Securities.

“Nifty needs to reclaim 17,800 today for any meaningful recovery to happen or else any attempt by bulls might go in vain. One last gap, the island reversal gap, should get filled at 17,557+ put writers support at 17,500 makes it a possible bottom fishing zone for this week,” said Rahul Sharma, Director & Head – Research, JM Financial.

‘Nifty is expected to open flat to positive at 17700, up by 30 points.  Nifty has support at 17600 and 17450 levels and resistance at 17950 and 18050 levels. Traders are suggested to avoid long positions till the time Nifty trades above 18350,’ Gaurav Udani, CEO & Founder, ThincRedBlu Securities.

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. While the respective indices have corrected by ~8-10%, we have seen much sharper cuts in several individual names. Over the past couple of months, we have been seeing more of small intermittent corrections within the market at sectoral level, rather than at the headline index level. The broader markets, however, had continued to do quite well, with expectations running quite high, leading to some froth getting built up. Past few days have seen some shakeout in the markets, which was necessary to make the markets healthier.
