Nifty is consolidating around the demand line of its 18-month-old ascending channel. On Monday, it bounced back after coming close to support placed around the said channel, resulting in a Hammer kind of formation, which should have bullish connotations, provided there is follow-through buying next session

ETMarkets Evening Podcast: Bulls are back, or are they?
Nifty formed a bearish candle on the daily scale with a long lower shadow, which indicated that dips got bought into while supply pressure remained intact at the 11,650 level. Now it needs to hold above 11,550 to extend its bounce towards the next hurdle at 11,650 level, while a hold below the same could drift it towards its major support at 11,500 and then 11,460 levels

- Pankaj Pandey, Head of Research, ICICIdirect
With no major event ahead, we feel earnings, progress of monsoon and global cues would dictate the trend. We reiterate our bearish view on Nifty and suggest continuing with “sell on rise” approach. Stocks, on the other hand, may continue to witness volatile swings across the board. We suggest keeping extra caution in stock selection and trade management. On sectoral front, banking and FMCG could lead the fall
Liquidity issue in the domestic market and weak economic data in China put pressure on the market. Green shoots from earnings lifted the sentiment of IT sector while ease in WPI inflation (June) to 2.02% added some cheer in the market. Q1 results announced so far have been mixed and going forward is expected to be subdued
- Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services
Nifty has strong resistance near 11,650. Until trading below said levels, we may see profit booking on every rise. Any close above 11,650 can lead to good short-covering, which in result may push index towards 11,700-11,750 zone and support for Nifty is coming near 11,530-11,480 zone
