What to expect from Tuesday’s trade?

We’re not seeing any respite in the global markets, especially the US, and we’re largely reflecting the same trend at our end too. Besides, mixed Q4 earnings are further adding to the negativity. We reiterate our view to focus on shorting opportunities on the rise until we see some sign of reversal. On the index front, support is intact at 16,000 in Nifty and the 16,550-16,650 zone would act as immediate hurdle. — Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking

I look at the rupee continuing its downward journey as dollar prices rise is a major risk to prices. A relief on the rupee front can only be seen if the dollar index cools off hence rupee can be seen as weak till the time it’s below 76.50 on the lower-end rupee can touch 78.00 incoming sessions which shall create fresh short unwinding in the dollar and making rupee even weak.

– Jateen Trivedi, Senior Research Analyst at LKP Securities

The market continued its downward rally amid lingering concerns over the weakening rupee, global interest rate hikes and tightening lockdowns in China. The relentless rise in the US dollar index owing to interest rate hikes and rising US treasury yield hammered investor’s risk appetite. Strong US jobs data indicated possibilities of faster rate hikes forcing investors to opt for safe-haven assets.

RBI intervenes to defend rupee as currency slides to record low

India’s central bank is intervening in all foreign-exchange markets and will continue to do so to protect the rupee that slid to a record low Monday, said a person familiar with the matter. The Reserve Bank of India sees its foreign-currency reserves of about $600 billion as a formidable stockpile that it will put to use against speculators, the person said, asking not to be identified as the deliberations aren’t public. The RBI is seeking an orderly depreciation, the person said. A central bank spokesperson wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Rupee plummets 60 paise to close at all-time low of 77.50/USD

The rupee extended its losses and slumped 60 paise to close at a record low of 77.50 (provisional) against the US dollar on Monday, pressured by the strength of the American currency overseas and unabated foreign fund outflows. Forex traders said risk appetite has weakened amid mounting concerns about inflation that may trigger more aggressive rate hikes by global central banks.


The Bank Nifty index yesterday filled the previous gap of 34000 and needs to sustain above this level for a relief rally. The immediate resistance on the upside stands at the 34600-34800 zone and a break above this will lead to short covering towards the levels of 35500. The index, however, if breaks the level of 34000 will witness further downside towards the levels of 32500.

Rupee fell to fresh all-time lows today as the dollar rose broadly against its major crosses. Last week’s central bank policy action led to heightened volatility in most of the currencies. Stronger dollar and sustained upmove in global crude oil price is weighing on the overall market sentiment. This week, focus will be on the inflation number that will be released on the domestic front as well as from the US. We expect the USDINR (Spot) to trade with a positive bias and quote in the range of 77.20 and 77.80.

Steel prices may fall to Rs 60,000/tonne by March: Report

Steel prices, which have been on a song for the past two years, are finally set to correct on weak seasonality, and may trade at around Rs 60,000/tonne by the end of the current fiscal year, down from the Rs 76,000/tonne peak it scaled last month, says a report.

Bitcoin drops 50% from peak, near lowest levels in last one year

A sharp selloff in riskier assets has been weighing hard on sentiments around cryptocurrencies as well. Bitcoin, the largest crypto token in terms of market capitalization and dominance, dropped below the $33,400 mark on Monday. It has wiped out more than half of investors’ wealth since hitting a lifetime peak of $67,566 in November 2021. According to industry players, the anticipation of a sluggish global economy, rising interest rates, inflationary worries, global economic crisis and risk aversion are key reasons dragging the price of Bitcoin lower.

Will the banking sector relative to IT be an outperformer?

“Yes. Banks will outperform IT. Within banking, what should be the outperformers? Very clearly PSU as a theme should outperform the private sector. Given that the growth sector has peaked out in terms of valuation multiples; it is the value theme which will play out from a decade perspective. I would like to play value in that basket; so all PSU banks and there are large public sector banks, will qualify. They are grossly under owned and currently quoting below the book or maybe closer to the book. Those are the names which one should capitalise on,” said Sandeep Tandon, CIO – Quant Mutual Fund.

The pull back from the 16400 vicinity on Friday proved to be too feeble to attract fresh buyers, as bearish vibes continued as expected. While this keeps the 14500 fears in play, favored view expects a pull back, if early downsides do not slip much beyond 16250. Inability to do so, would mean a wait at least until 15800 before buyers regroup.

Market LIVE updates: RIL shares fall nearly 10% in 6 sessions

Hawkish stance by the Fed, rate hikes by RBI, Bank of England and Australian central bank have created an atmosphere of risk-off for equities. We don’t know how long this will last. Nifty corrected by 3.9 percent last week, but investors should not commit the mistake of aggressively buying on this dip assuming that prices have corrected a lot. Even after the correction Nifty is trading at around 19 times FY23 earnings. This is higher than the long-term average of 16 times and certainly not buyable valuation, particularly when equity markets globally are facing many headwinds like risk of growth slowdown, Ukraine war and supply chain disruptions caused by stringent lockdown in China. However, long-term investors may start nibbling at high quality stocks in segments like financials where there is valuation comfort.
