Is it time to add quality stocks on dips?

07:34 PM

Selling may halt now, as the index respected its key support area of 11,800 after a decline of 300 points due to profit taking from its lifetime high of 12,158. The index needs to negate formation of lower lows of last four sessions by surpassing 11,923 to witness an upmove towards the 12,000-12,035 zone. On the downside, major support exists at 11,800

Nifty and Sensex managed to close higher on the back of specific measures that the government has taken to improve the health of NBFCs and HFCs. The details might come in the evening or on Thursday, but such type of measures always boost the sentiment

05:18 PM

After a subdued trade during most part of the day, market witnessed a sharp turnaround due to short covering in index heavyweights. Upcoming macro indicators such as CPI inflation and IIP data are unlikely to paint a rosy picture, which may reduce upside potential in the near term. On the global front, FOMC meeting, UK election and US tariff deadline remain key events

Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services
05:18 PM

As bulls remain on the sidelines, moves are choppy and recoveries are not sustaining. We continue with our near term view of consolidation phase in the market. Market breadth yet again remained on the weaker side. Support zone of 11,700 is likely to get tested on the downside, which may be a good time to play contra and go long on the index near key important support zone. Support: 11,800-11,700 & Resistance: 11,950-12,020

04:22 PM

In the absence of any major local triggers, participants are closely following the global cues and we do not see this changing anytime soon. Markets will react to the US Fed commentary in early trade on Thursday. We expect volatility to remain high thus advise preferring hedged bets instead of naked trades. In case of a further rebound, Nifty would face hurdles around 12,050-12,100 zone.
