“The markets are taking a bit of a breather this morning. While it is facing some resistance at 18350, the trend continues to remain positive and the Nifty should be able to achieve 18600. A strong support lies at 18100 and hence any market drop can be used to accumulate long positions.”

Gold steady as investors weigh monetary policy outlook against Omicron variant

Gold steadied after its best week in two months as traders weigh the outlook for monetary policy against the threat posed by a fresh coronavirus wave in the US.

Facing pressure from Congress and the public to tackle the hottest inflation since the 1980s, a chorus of Federal Reserve officials this month floated raising rates in March and the potential need to hike as many as five times this year, marking a clear shift in projections from just a few weeks ago.

Monday market wrap up: Sameet Chavan (Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One Ltd)

Nifty pushes beyond 18300 gradually, but stocks on a roll

Today morning, the global markets looked a bit nervous but as we approached our opening time, the SGX Nifty recovered to some extent and as a result, the week kick started the week marginally in red. Market did not take much of a time to enter the positive terrain and then remained within a slender range throughout the remaining part of the session. Although there was no real momentum in key indices, Nifty managed to reclaim the 18300 mark at the close.

Since last 3 – 4 trading sessions, the benchmark index has lost its sheen because heavyweight banking space continues to sulk a bit. But we must construe this as an index balancing because we have already seen a massive recovery and now approaching record highs when the mega event budget is around the corner. So this has applied brakes on the momentum in key indices but all this whist, if we look at the overall activity in market meticulously, there is no shortage of action in individual themes. In such times, it’s advisable not to focus on index, rather keep concentrating in stock specific moves that are likely to provide better trading opportunities. As far as levels are concerned, 18350 – 18400 are to be considered as immediate resistances; whereas on the flipside, 18200 – 18150 is to be treated as key supports now.
