Here’s how analysts read the market pulse:
Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research,
. said: “the domestic equities have corrected by more than 4% over the last four trading sessions as global uncertainties dominate market sentiments. A short bounce or reversal can be seen following this intense selling. However, the overall narrative of the market remains weak , especially following the cautiousness ahead of the RBI MPC due later this week”.
Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said, “the steep weakness continued in the market for the second consecutive session on Monday, and Nifty closed the day lower by 311 points. The short-term trend of the Nifty is sharply down, and the weakness is expected to continue for the next 1-2 sessions. The lower support area of 16,800 is expected to offer a base for the market in the short term”.
That said, here’s a look at what some key indicators are suggesting for Tuesday’s action:
US stocks open mixed Wall Street stocks were mixed early Monday amid unease over recent equity losses and upheaval in the foreign exchange market that has lifted the dollar to historic highs. About 15 minutes into trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 0.5 percent at 29,455.46.
The broad-based S&P 500 slipped 0.1 percent to 3,690.64, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 0.6 percent to 10,936.43.
European markets choppyEurope’s STOXX 600 index slipped for the third straight session on Monday on worries about an economic downturn, although Italian shares outperformed after the right-wing coalition led by Georgia Meloni looked set to win the country’s general election.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 was down 0.3% by mid-afternoon, having earlier fallen more than 0.8%
Tech View: Long bear candleOn the daily chart, a long bear candle was established. Technically, this market is suggestive of a sharp down-trended movement in the market. Though Nifty declined sharply by around 10,00 points from the highs of 18000, there is no confirmation of any buying emerging from the lows.
