“We reiterate that till the time we do not surpass 17900 – 18000, one should continue with a sell on rise strategy. Sooner or later it is likely to breach the key support of 17200 to slide below the 17000 mark,” said Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst – Technical & Derivatives at Angel One.

The domestic benchmark – Nifty Index has gained ~25% YTD and has outpaced all the emerging markets.

Key observation is that the index (Bank Nifty) since April 2020 has not corrected for more than one month barring one instance . In the current scenario with one month of decline already behind us, we expect the index to maintain the rhythm and form a higher base in the coming weeks.

“Following to Asian trades Indian markets are overreacting to the concern over a new Covid variant found in South Africa last night followed by few EU countries under full lockdown scenario. Traders in fear are selling riskier assets like equities, which could result in increased equity outflows from FII. We believe India is not in panic mode and investors should make use of this selloff as a buying opportunity. The new variant should not be a great matter of concern for us and we suggest investors with suitable risk appetite to consider and start allocating money into markets who have missed the rallies,” said Prashanth Tapse, Vice President (Research) at Mehta Equities Ltd, a SEBI Certified Research Analyst.

“Equity markets have plunged almost 2% amid the emergence of a new, highly mutated Covid-19 variant. EU announced temporary ban of flights from South Africa and few EU countries are already under full lockdown scenario. Thus there is fear of this new variant spreading to other countries which might again derail the global economy. Already there is uncertainty as to when the US Fed will start raising interest rates. So markets might continue to reel under pressure and would actively track covid situation globally,” said Hemang Jani, Head of Equity Strategy & Senior Group VP, Broking & Distribution, Motilal Oswal.

Among sectoral indices, Nifty Pharma and Nifty Healthcare index were the only ones in green as investors rallied behind defensive bets. Both the sectoral indices were up more than 2% each.

“Yesterday’s pullback after the early scare in the first half, and the inability to push beyond 17561 in the second half, despite several and strong up waves, confirms that consolidation is in play, rather than a directional move. Favoured view expects the same to continue today, without requiring to take a call on the chances of either 19k or 16k for now. During the day, it would be critical for Nifty to float above 17420 to maintain potential for a 17750-800 move. Inability to do so could clear path for 17000.”

The stock kept surging throughout the day to mark whopping gains over 6% percent. It is needless to mention when this heavyweight moves in this fashion, it certainly takes the benchmark alongside it.

“The lack of faster retracement of the last decline signifies weak pullback that makes us believe retest of recent low of 17216 can not be ruled out. Over past 3 sessions index has retraced 38% of preceding four sessions decline (18210-17216). Since April 2020, there have been three major corrections (shown in adjoining chart) which measured average 9%. Buying in each of three corrections provided handsome returns for investors as index eventually scaled back to new highs. In current scenario, as Nifty has already corrected 7.5% from life highs of 18600 amid oversold placement of weekly stochastic (currently placed at 21), we expect markets to maintain this rhythm of arresting corrections within 9%. Thus, we expect Nifty to find strong buying demand in 16900-17100 zone,” said ICICI Direct.
