Nifty has broken equilibrium level at 10,930 and closed at the lower boundary of the channel. Below 10,740, Nifty would enter in quick retracement towards 10,637

- Shrikant Chouhan, Senior Vice-President, Equity Technical Research, Kotak Securities

06:17 PM

The breakdown is likely to threaten the recent bottom of 10,637 level registered in August. The upside remains capped around 11,084 level. Positional traders with high risk appetite are advised to create short positions now and on rallies towards 11,000 level with a stop loss above 11,100 on a closing basis and a target of 10,637

60% of Nifty stocks and 70% of Nifty500 stocks have witnessed Death Cross formations on daily charts. This is what we have seen lately as in terms of a measure which checks the breadth structure of Nifty components 50 components and other broader market indices. This largely doesn't mean there is a shorting opportunity in that particular stock as there may be some different play on Weekly or Monthly time frame. But it doesn't indicate cautiousness and overall weakness. But it has, more importantly, to do with overall breadth of the market which is very bearish

GST rate cut from 28% to 18% can definitely drive demand in the near term. However, if the cut is only till March 31, FY21 could see another period of slowdown as BS VI price hike along with reversal in GST cuts will lead to a sharp jump in vehicle prices. A longer term approach is required. Two-wheelers below 150cc and CVs are not luxury items and hence can attract lower GST rates

06:14 PM

Nifty showing a sharp weakness, indicates a reversal of a recent upside bounce. The 11,100 level has acted as a strong resistance for the fourth occasion and resulted in a sharp decline. As per its previous reversal from the highs, one may expect further weakness in the next 1-2 sessions. The next lower levels to be watched at 10,700

- Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities

06:09 PM

The breakdown from the lower end of the pattern on a closing basis suggests Nifty has a significant downside on the cards. The benchmark index is now set to test the August low of 10,637 with potential to tumble towards 10,455 level in the short term. Hence, any bounce towards the 10,880-10,900 zone can be seen as an opportunity to initiate fresh short positions

- Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Sharekhan

06:09 PM

Auto stocks led the downside followed by banking putting pressure on Nifty. The 10,600 zone is the next downside support. It will be interesting to see if Nifty breaches 10,740 in the near term. The index is likely to face resistance near 10,970-11,000

- Amit Shah, Technical Research Analyst, Indiabulls Ventures

06:05 PM

Nifty has broken its rising support trend line by connecting the swing lows of 10637, 10,746 and 10,880 levels. Nifty has broken its immediate support at 10,950 after completing its NR4 pattern. It has started forming lower highs for last two sessions. As long as it holds below 10,880, weakness could continue till 10,750 level. On the upside, a major hurdle is seen at 10,950 level

- Chandan Taparia, Motilal Oswal Securities

06:04 PM

Nifty could not sustain above 11,000 and tested important support around 10,800 level, below the 20-day moving average. RSI looking weak on the daily chart and currently placed at 41.42. Along with this, in the weekly chart, Nifty seems to be consolidating between 50-day DMA with resistance around 11,150 and 200-DMA as support at 10,750. This week, if the index moves below the range of 10,800-10,750 on a closing basis, then we could witness a more severe bearish move that may take it down to 10,500 level. On the other hand, if 10,750 levels remain intact then the market may trade 10,750 to 11,150

The sharp rise in crude oil prices has impacted domestic sentiment. Market participants would keep a close watch on geopolitical developments as further escalation would have an adverse impact on the market and economy. Apart from this, the FOMC meet outcome would also be on investors’ radar as there are expectations of a rate cut. However, commentary on growth and rate outlook would be a key factor to watch out for. On the domestic front, the recent measures announcement are positive, but it failed to lift market. In the near term, the GST meet would be on investors’ radar as expectations of rate cut are high, especially for the auto sector. The above crucial events in the near term is likely to induce volatility in the market

Expect 4-5% price growth, flat demand in FY20: CS on cement sector

Credit Suisse said that the domestic cement sector continues to see slow demand growth.

Our channel checks and demand outlook suggest that a large part of this may be difficult to sustain. We build 4-5 per cent price growth and nil demand growth in this FY20.

Temporary cut in GST rate may not revive auto demand: Kotak Securities

Kotak Securities said that a temporary cut in GST rate, say for six months, is not going to revive industry demand and the government may need to extend the GST rate cut for an extended period of time for the revival in auto demand. "Given limited fiscal space, we ascribe very low chances for a GST rate cut. However, the positive impact on auto companies’ financials could be significant if 10% GST rate cut in the auto sector is given for an extended period of time," it said.
