With India’s story remaining “very strong”, the economy will register double-digit growth in the current fiscal and the disinvestment climate also looks better, said Niti Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar. He also asserted that the country is prepared in a far better manner in case there is a COVID wave as states have also their own lessons from the previous two waves.

The Nifty has bounced from Friday’s low and is once again trading around the mid point of the range which is between 15400-15900. If we can scale higher and get past 15900, we should be able to achieve 16100. Until then trading is going to be lackluster with tepid volumes.

IRCTC share price jumped nearly one per cent to trade at Rs 2,240, on BSE. It hit a record high of Rs 2,248 last week

Domestically, the rupee snapped its week-long losing run due to consistent flows on account of IPO and a broad risk-on mood. Attention will now turn to flows on account of Zomato’s IPO this week for Rs. 9375crs. That apart, sentiments remain boosted after China cut the banks’ reserve requirement ratio by 50bps providing some liquidity easing. Investors now await India’s IIP and CPI Inflation that will be released today and WPI inflation on Wednesday for further clues on the rupee. Overall, strong inflows into the domestic equity market could limit the upside in the pair while any intervention in spot by RBI downside could cap extended gains. This has led to the short-term range for the USDINR pair confined into the 74.20-74.95 zone. Amit Pabari, managing director, CR Forex Advisors

The chart pattern suggests that if Nifty crosses and sustains above 15800 level it would witness buying which would lead the index towards 15900-16300 levels. However, if the index breaks below 15600 level it would witness selling which would take the index towards 15400-15300. Nifty is now well placed above its 50 and 100 SMA indicating positive bias in the short term. Nifty is expected to remain in an uptrend to sideways zone until it breaks 15600 on the downside. For the week, we expect Nifty to trade in the range of 15900-15600 with mixed bias.
