The market is moving in a range ahead of the big event. A break above 18200 on the higher side will add momentum but sustained selling by foreign investors is a near-term negative, suggest experts.
“Nifty’s 17800-18200 range has been holding for some time now. To break the upper end of the range, the market needs positive triggers. Early Q3 results broadly have been positive with IT companies and banks delivering good results,” Dr. VK Vijayakumar , Chief Investment Strategist at
said. “This trend continues with the latest results from ICICI and . , too, has delivered a decent set of numbers. Positive news from the Fed meeting outcome and the Union Budget on 1st February can break the upper band of the Nifty range and take the market higher,” he said.
He further added that sustained FII selling is a near-term negative. Investors may wait for and watch these critical numbers.
India VIX was down by 0.28% from 14.08 to 13.40 levels on Friday. Volatility has been hovering at lower levels from the last nine weeks and supporting the bulls to hold the overall command.
