Stock Market Highlights Today: Nifty forms bearish engulfing candle candle on daily chart.


After trading flat for most of the day, benchmark indices slumped on Tuesday after US Futures opened deep in the red. Weak global cues from elsewhere also dampened the market mood. The 30-share pack Sensex declined 554.05 points or 0.90 per cent to close at 60,754.86. Its broader peer NSE Nifty fell 195.05 points or 1.07 per cent to 18,113.05. All sectors saw selling. Metals, realty and IT names were especially under pressure. Volatility also rose ahead of the press conference by the Finance Minister today.

We may see a further decline in the Nifty index and the 17,950-18,050 zone would act as a support. Volatility usually remains high during the corrective phase and earnings season is further adding to the choppiness. Keeping in mind the scenario, it’s prudent to maintain a few shorts also. The focus should be on earnings and global markets for cues.

Raymond to redevelop residential project in Mumbai’s western sub-urban district

‘Ten X Realty Limited’, the step-down wholly owned subsidiary of Raymond, has today signed a binding term sheet for joint redevelopment of residential project in the western sub-urban district of Mumbai. The project is estimated to have, in aggregate, revenue potential of around Rs 2,000 crore over a period of next 5 years.

Following a weak lead from the global markets, domestic indices witnessed a highly volatile trade ahead of the press conference by the Finance Minister today. Surge in oil prices and FIIs turning net sellers also added volatility in the domestic market. Globally, markets witnessed selling pressure following a surge in US treasury yield amid rate hike worries while oil prices rose on supply tension owing to the drone attack on UAE.

Bajaj Auto Q3 Preview: Profit may drop over 20% on commodity inflation

Bajaj Auto is likely to report over a 20 per cent drop in year-on-year (YoY) profit in the December quarter on flattish sales. Realisation may increase due to price hikes, but margins may diminish 400-550 basis points due to delay in the passing-through of commodity inflation. Analysts said higher export contribution and price hikes may dilute the impact of cost inflation a bit and are factoring in some recovery.

I would look at around 19,000 on the upside for Nifty and may be 16,500 on the downside. It is a very broad band but the way the markets are, the kind of liquidity and volatility that there are, the bands will have to be broader. In this range, we will see a massive churn in sectors. A lot of sectors will be going up and down the pecking order and that is where money will be made.

– Atul Suri, Founder & CEO, Marathon Trends

A recent trend in markets globally is the shift from growth to value. One of the several consequences of the exuberance of the new breed of young tech-savvy retail investors is the fad around new age digital stocks. This fad has pushed up the valuations of these stocks into irrational territory. Now the froth in these segments is getting removed. Many tech stocks in the US are sharply down. 2022 is likely to witness high volatility in stock markets unlike 2021. Quality value stocks will be safe bets during the volatile times. FIIs again turning sellers is likely to be a headwind for the market in the short run.

But with inflation set to remain below its 2% target in the coming years, the BOJ stressed its resolve to maintain its ultra-loose monetary policy even as its global counterparts move toward exiting from crisis-mode policies.
