An attempted pullback was short-lived as Nifty faced fresh selling near the 20-hour moving average. The sharp fall, over the past few sessions, was in line with the sharp expansion in the daily Bollinger Bands. The daily momentum indicator continues to favour the bears, whereas the weekly momentum indicator has given a fresh sell signal. All these observations suggest the index can test lower levels going forward

In the near term, Nifty sustaining above 11,250 level would be crucial for the bulls to prevent further damage. Contrary to this, a breach of the 11,229 level on a closing basis shall further strengthen the bearish sentiment and eventually lead the index to test their 200-day moving average, whose value is placed around 11,020 level

Nifty formed a bearish candle on daily as well as weekly charts, which meant the bears are continuously putting pressure at higher levels. The index has been forming lower highs and lows from last five sessions and holding below its 50-DEMA, which indicates weakness. As long as it remains below 11,350, weakness could continue and take Nifty towards 11,188 and then 11,050 levels, while on the upside, a hurdle is seen at 11,333 and then 11,420 levels

IIP in March 2019 contracted 0.1% (February 2019: 0.1% and March 2018: 5.3%). Manufacturing sector contracted both in February and March 2019, on overall basis, it is first contraction after June 2017 (-0.3%). On sequential basis only electricity sector grew faster in March 2019 (2.2% as against 1.3% in February 2019). Declining growth of primary goods and deepening contraction of intermediate goods, and weakness in both investment and consumption activities suggests very fragile industrial activities in near-term

The earnings season has not panned out well going by the numbers of Auto, Consumer and Pvt banks quarterly results. We have started to see signs of slowdown in the economy, going by management commentary of consumer companies. If the slowdown gains traction, then may be further earnings downgrades in more sectors. Investors are also wary of taking aggressive positions before the general elections results to be announced on May 23rd. Our advice would be to be selective on the basis quality of management and business. Also, investors should avoid investing in companies that have high share of promoter pledges as stocks of such companies have come under selling pressure in recent days.

Inflation likely crept up to six-month high in April: Poll

India inflation likely crept up slightly to a six-month high in April, driven mainly by food prices, a Reuters poll found, although holding below the Reserve Bank of India's medium-term target of 4 per cent for the ninth straight month.

If true, that would support expectations for the central bank to keep policy on hold through to the end of next year after cutting interest rates twice in a row, in February and April, ahead of national elections.

The latest Reuters poll of over 40 economists, conducted May 3-9, showed India retail inflation likely rose to 2.97 per cent last month from 2.86 per cent in March. The data is due May 13.
