Expert Speak 

Arvinder Singh Nanda, Senior Vice President, Master Capital Services

Sensex and Nifty ended the week with mixed performance by snapping their three day losing streak aided by gains in IT and technology stocks. Factors like Strong FII buying positive domestic economic indicators were positive for the market while global uncertainties surrounding interest rates and US debt ceiling impasse have provoked investors to book some profits. On sectoral front, Nifty Realty gained the most while Pharma declined the most, followed by Media. 

Nifty prices experienced a decline from a five-month high, closing the week at 18203.40, down 0.61per cent from the previous week's levels. This correctional fall can be attributed to mounting global headwinds, particularly concerns surrounding the U.S. debt ceiling. Technically, broader market sentiments are still firm, although prices need to move above 18350-18460 with full conviction to extend the bullish journey for 18750-18880. On the downside, 18000-17900 will act as immediate support. This level is anticipated to attract fresh buying interest, potentially providing a floor for any potential declines in prices. The MACD indicator has witnessed a bearish crossover on the daily chart which fuels the possibility of a correctional fall in prices.
