NEW DELHI: As Nifty ended the Tuesday’s volatile trading session on a flat note, it formed a bearish candle on the daily chart.
Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal Financial Services said the major trend of the index remains positive, and followup buying can trigger the next leg of rally.
“The index has to continue to hold above the 11,350 zone to witness an upmove towards 11,600 while on the downside, the medium-term support has shifted to 11,300-11,250 zones,” he said.
Vinod Nair of Geojit Financial Services said the market is trading with uncertainty due to lack of domestic triggers so investors are advised to remain cautious and keep booking profits whenever possible.
Ajit Mishra of Religare Broking said the recent buoyancy in the banking space is helping the index to inch higher while other index heavyweights are seeing a pause.
“We reiterate our bullish view on markets and suggest continuing with the “buy on dips” approach,” he said.
That said here’s a look at what some of the key indicators are suggesting for Wednesday’s action:
US stocks muted as Apple overshadows positive trade deal cues
Wall Street’s main indexes slipped on Tuesday following a three-day rally as a drop in Apple shares overshadowed optimism from remarks made by U.S. and China officials in pledging firm commitment to a Phase One trade deal. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 85.39 points, or 0.30%, at 28,223.07, the S&P 500 was down 1.85 points, or 0.05%, at 3,429.43. The Nasdaq Composite was down 17.34 points, or 0.15%, at 11,362.38.
European shares rise on trade hopes, German data
Renewed optimism over a U.S.-China trade deal and a smaller-than-expected decline in German economic output fuelled gains in European stocks on Tuesday, with Frankfurt shares hitting a one-month high. The pan-European STOXX 600 index rose 0.4%, extending Monday’s gains, which were driven by positive updates on COVID-19 treatment efforts.
Tech View: Nifty forms bearish candle
NEW DELHI: Nifty50 could not capitalise on a positive opening on Tuesday, but saw buying interest intraday on every dip. The NSE barometer eventually ended up forming a small bearish candle on the daily chart. Analysts said the index continued to form higher high and low even as supports shifted higher. As long as the index trades above the 11,350 level, analysts expect the bias to remain positive.
