Global sentiments continue to be fragile

Globally, the sentiments continue to be fragile as equities, bonds, currencies bear the losses. Investors are watching US senate vote on the legislation seeking to ban the imports of Russian energy. It is expected that the move will create huge supply demand mismatch in the oil markets and will further push oil prices higher. On the other side, the third round of talks held between Russia and Ukraine-held in Belarus has failed to remove any deadlock between the two showing that the tensions will continue for some time more.

Nifty needs to hold above 16200

“15900-16200 is a resistance patch for the index. Until then the trend remains bearish and any rally up or knee jerk reaction can be used to short the Nifty for lower targets. If we are unable to sustain above 16200, the market can fall to 15300,” said

Rupee likely to depreciate on strong dollar, high crude oil prices, USDINR pair to trade in this range

The Indian rupee depreciated 1.05% to hit its lowest level against the US dollar on Monday amid soaring oil prices and continued outflows of foreign portfolio money on last trading session. The local unit is expected to depreciate further on Tuesday due to stronger dollar and higher crude oil prices. Further, pessimistic sentiments in the global markets may hurt the rupee. Additionally, consistent FII withdrawal from domestic markets will continue to put pressure on the rupee. US$INR (March) is expected to rise further towards 77.50 for the day, according to ICICI Direct. Read full story

Nifty down 15% from record-high

The heightened volatility in the market continues. Nasdaq is now 20 % down from the peak indicating that it has entered bear market territory. Nifty is down 15% from the peak. All commodities have surged indicating imminent higher inflation. Even though the market is now oversold, sentiments are negative. The positive development from the market perspective is the exit poll projection of BJP doing well in UP. Declining bond yields in the US and the possibility of lower-than-feared rate hikes by the Fed are reliefs from the market perspective.

State elections exit polls, actual results on March 10 would be actively tracked

Markets are rattled with a sharp surge in crude amid the fear of further sanctions on Russia. Besides, there’s no sign of de-escalation of tension between the two nations. In short, we expect volatility to remain high and suggest keeping a close watch on global markets for cues. On the domestic front, state elections exit polls and actual results on March 10 would be actively tracked. Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking

Below Nifty 15711, expect waterfall of selling which could take Nifty down to 14251

The fear theme at Dalal Street is getting profound and palpable on backdrop of ‘stagflation’. The street will keenly watch on how RBI tackles with a backdrop of higher oil and commodity prices, and most importantly, growth-supporting fiscal policies. Technically speaking, Nifty’s biggest supports are placed at 15711 mark. Below Nifty 15711 zone, expect waterfall of selling which could take Nifty down to 14251 mark with inter-month perspective. From a chartist standpoint, the technical landscape will improve considerably only if Nifty closes above 16557 mark. Prashanth Tapse, Vice President (Research), Mehta Equities

Short term trend of Nifty continues to be weak

The short term trend of Nifty continues to be weak. The last hour upside recovery of Monday could bring some hopes of pullback rally in the short term. A sustainable upside bounce is expected from there or from the lows of 15700-15500 levels in the next few sessions. Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities

Nifty may witness recovery in near term

Market has remained weak as Nifty corrected heavily during the session. On the lower end, the benchmark Nifty has fallen towards the lower band of the falling channel; therefore, Nifty may witness a recovery in the near term. On the lower end support is seen at 15500 below which further correction may be seen. On the higher end, resistance is seen at 16200. Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities

08:30 (IST) 8 Mar 2022
Nifty close to supports of 15700-15900

Nifty is now close to the supports of 15700-15900. It has seen buying support from this band twice during the day. However, advance decline ratio remains down at 450:1873. The state assembly elections exit polls result expected in the evening could bring an end to one uncertainty faced by the markets. Unless the outcome is severely against the BJP, we think that the markets could bounce up in the next few sessions not getting too perturbed by the developments in Europe.

Paint stocks witness sharp correction on rich valuation, rise in crude oil prices

Paint stocks witnessed sharp correction in the market as rich valuation and significant rise in oil prices continued to drag the investor’s sentiment. TIO2, a derivative of crude oil is the key input in the manufacturing of paints. A surge in price will increase the cost of production and impact the company’s gross margins. Paint Company’s already taken 18% to 20% price hike in 9MFY22 to mitigate the risk of higher input prices. We expect the raw material inflationary trend to continue; albeit the rate of increase is expected to be moderate in Q4, to support the demand.

Indian rupee likely trade in 76.70-77.50 range

Rupee continued to remain under pressure and fell to fresh all-time lows following rising uncertainty between Russia and Ukraine and rally in global crude oil prices. Momentum has been towards rupee depreciation for the past few sessions as market participants remain on the edge following geopolitical tensions. This week, on the domestic front, industrial production number will be important to watch and that could trigger volatility for the currency. We expect the USDINR (Spot) to trade with a positive bias and quote in the range of 76.70 and 77.50. Gaurang Somaiya, Forex & Bullion Analyst, Motilal Oswal Financial Services
