“The Bank Nifty bulls continued to witness sideways movement on the day of the weekly expiry. The index to resume on the upside must trade decisively above the level of 42700, confirming the continuation of the uptrend towards 43,000-43,500 levels. The immediate support on the lower end is placed at 42400, and if it fails to sustain above, it can lead to a further decline towards 42,000 where the maximum put open interest is built up.”

MARKET VIEW: Ajit Mishra, VP – Technical Research, Religare Broking

Markets remained range bound and lost nearly half a percent amid mixed cues. The Nifty index traded dull in a narrow range for most of the session however decline in the last half an hour pushed the index in the red. It finally settled at 18,343.9; down by 0.4%. The decline was widespread wherein auto, media and IT lost over a percent each. The broader indices too remained under pressure and lost nearly half a percent each.

The recent market structure is pointing towards the possibility of some profit taking or consolidation ahead. However, we expect Nifty to hold the 17800-18100 zone. The prevailing underperformance on the broader front is already hurting sentiment and it might deteriorate further during the corrective phase. We thus reiterate our view to remain selective and focus on position sizing.

Global markets have recently surged on expectations that the Fed may scale back its aggressive rate hike schedule in reaction to easing U.S. inflation statistics. The euphoria was, however, dashed by better U.S. retail sales in October and aggressive remarks from Fed officials. The domestic market moved in tandem with the trend, with most sectors in red.

Nifty started lower and remained volatile throughout the day. On a closing basis, Nifty bulls were able to hold the crucial support of 18300. The RSI (14) on the daily chart has entered a bearish correction. Going forward, a fall below 18300 may trigger a correction towards 18100-18000. On the other hand, resistance is visible at 18450.

Directional moves have gone missing in the last few days. Amidst this, though bullish patterns are intact,it might require dips to be more substantial to invite larger upmoves. Towards this end, 18280 or even 18000 will be in the radar. Alternatively, direct rise above 18460/80 could revive hopes of 18800, though18530 and 18604 will remain initial challenges.

The fact that Sensex and Nifty are at record closing highs tells us that the Buy on Dips strategy has worked well in this market. Therefore, this strategy can be expected to work, going forward, too. High quality stocks in banking, IT, telecom and capital goods form the backbone of this large-cap driven rally. Dips in this segment are likely to get bought. India is the only large market that crossed previous record highs. This will stand the market in good stead. Even though the mother market US has turned a bit weak, the sustained fall in US bond yields is a positive for emerging markets like India. The mid- and small-cap indices are likely to remain weak.
