Dear Trader…

The Indian stock market started trading with a decline and plunged with caution in global markets, creating a civil war-like situation in Pakistan's Sindh province. Nifty index remained highly volatile as a roller coaster ride was witnessed in between 11808 to 12008 levels. It tested psychological 12k marks of the session but it failed.

India VIX moved down by 1.24 percent from 22.91 to 22.63 levels. The index negated its higher highs of the last three sessions but it needs to further cool down below 20 zones for market stability and keeping in account volatility could spike ahead of US election.

Corporate India's quarterly results saw modest to negative results in India, with the world expected to emerge from the Corona epidemic next year. With elections looming in the US, global markets, including India, are seeing risk-averse sentiment, with the monsoon being very successful across the country; the agriculture sector is expected to see high extraordinary growth this year.

This is likely to boost the rural economy and boost economic growth. Given the current trend, the benchmark Nifty futures could be seen near its pre-Diwali high of 12,400 in early 2020, if for any unforeseen adverse reasons. There are still 16 trading sessions left before Diwali. If global markets support and the benchmark jumps to 12,000, there will be frenzy in sentiment.

The improvement seen in the most weighted banking sector in the market is also encouraging. Sentiment in the banking sector has changed as HDFC Bank announced better-than-expected results for the second quarter. HDFC Bank, the third largest market cap after Reliance Industries and TCS, topped the list after January 2020. While it is 5% below the highest level it showed in December 2019. Thus banking seems to take the lead in the current reforms in the market. The last three-four trading sessions in IT have seen high level of profit booking but given the orbs like buyback, they are less likely to fall further than the current level. Thus the two heavyweight sectors are ready to provide adequate support to the benchmark.

Markets are closely following global cues and indications are still mixed from that front. Despite the positive bias, we might continue to see volatile swings so traders should prefer hedged positions and maintain their focus on the selection of stocks.

Nifty future tested major support at 11808 points and rebounded from there over the last few sessions - this rally has been supported by the return of net buy flows from domestic institutional investors. Given the backdrop of elevated redemptions from domestic mutual funds over the last few months, this turn in flow environment speaks to ebbing of redemption pressures.

We still maintain our stance that 11808 points the low of bearish engulfing pattern remains a make or break level on closing basis. If Nifty future manages to hold the of 11909 points then we may see momentum towards 11989 to 12008 points. At present cautiously positive approach at current level should be adopted. However, stock specific activity is likely to continue.
