Market Week Ahead: 10 factors that will keep traders busy next week

The market is expected to consolidate for next few sessions before resuming its northward journey, but the long term trend remains positive, experts said

Bulls continued to dominate Dalal Street for the third consecutive week as the Nifty and Sensex hit fresh intraday record highs of 11,495.20 and 38,076.23, respectively, in the week-ended August 10.

Inflow from foreign institutional investors, continued buying in banking and financials and in-line better-than-expected Q1 earnings boosted investor sentiment, though there is a caution in global peers due to trade tensions.

The Sensex gained 0.83 percent to close the week at 37,869.23. The Nifty rose 0.60 percent to end Friday at 11,429.50. Both benchmark indices have rallied 3.8 percent in the last three weeks.

The broader market underperformed frontliners with the BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices gaining 0.02 percent and 0.29 percent, respectively, in the passing week but outperformed in three consecutive weeks, rising 6.7 percent each.

After such an upmove and given that we are at the fag end of the June quarter earnings season, which seems to have been priced in, and continued uncertainty over US-China trade war, experts expect the market to consolidate for the next few sessions before resuming its northward journey. However, they were quick to add that the long term trend remains intact.

Experts don't see any major risk on the domestic front, adding that any sharp correction if it occurs will only be because of global reasons.

"With the index trading at a record high, some consolidation cannot be ruled out. We expect stock-specific volatility to continue with more corporate earnings scheduled in the next few sessions," Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking told Moneycontrol.

Experts said market participants would keep an eye on global developments especially the US-China trade war, progress of the monsoon, macroeconomic data, investment by foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) and domestic institutional investors (DIIs), movement of the rupee against the dollar and crude oil price trajectory.

"We continue to remain positive on market. We feel a sufficient monsoon, hike in the minimum support price and government infrastructure spending will be positive for the consumption theme," Hemang Jani, Head - Advisory, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said.

Indian stock market will remain shut on Wednesday, August 15, on account of Independence Day.

Here are 10 key factors that will keep traders busy next week:

Earnings

As we enter the final week of June quarter earnings season, nearly 1,800 companies will declare their quarterly earnings. Most of these will be out in the first two sessions of the week itself.

Tata Steel, Tata Chemicals, Cadila Healthcare, CARE Ratings, Godrej Industries, DHFL, Oil India, Ashoka Buildcon and Hotel Leela Venture will announce their numbers on Monday, while Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, IDBI Bank, Allahabad Bank, Grasim Industries, Indiabulls Real Estate, HDIL and Dilip Buildcon will declare results on Tuesday.

Trade war

Globally investors will continue to closely watch trade tensions between the world's largest economies: US and China. In the week gone by, both governments announced the possibility of imposing tit-for-tat tariffs on an additional $16 billion worth of goods.

Dollar-rupee and crude movements

The rupee ended the week at 68.83 against the dollar, falling 22 paise compared to closing value of 68.61 a dollar on August 3 due to appreciation in the American currency. On Friday, it did hit 69 a dollar intraday.

The fall in currency was after upside seen in previous two consecutive weeks, as renewed global currency turmoil (hit by the sudden wave of risk-off on mounting fears over a political crisis in Turkey) and worsening trade war fears worldwide rattled the forex market in a big way.

Further depreciation in the rupee may act as a dampener in the near term for equities, ICICIdirect Research said.

Crude oil prices corrected for the week-ended August 10 as investors worried that global trade disputes could slowdown economic growth and hurt demand for energy.

US crude futures fell more than a percent during the week, posting its sixth straight weekly loss for its worst losing streak since August 2015. Brent was down around half a percent.

Macro data

Consumer price index (CPI) inflation will be released on Monday while Wholesale price index (WPI) Inflation and trade data for July will be announced on Tuesday.

India's Foreign Exchange Reserves for the week ended August 10 and deposit & bank loan growth for the week ended August 3 will be declared on Friday.

Money flow

Foreign institutional investors and domestic institutional investors' flow will be closely watch in the coming week after they were net buyers in the passing week.

FIIs inflow remained supportive factor during the week ended August 10 as they were net buyers to the tune of around Rs 1,300 crore while DIIs (as per provisional data) were also net buyers to the tune of Rs 301 crore.

Technical outlook

The Nifty opened the week above 11,400 levels and managed to hold the same level at close on Friday. It remained rangebound for major part of the week, though it touched intraday record high of 11,495.20 amid stable to better-than-expected earnings.

The index formed Spinning Top candle on the weekly candlestick charts. Spinning Top is often regarded as a neutral pattern which suggests indecisiveness on the part of both bulls as well as bears. It can be formed in an uptrend as well as in a downtrend.

After positive close for five consecutive sessions, the Nifty ended Friday on a negative note, which indicated that there could be consolidation before moving northward, experts said.

"The Nifty ended the week with a spinning top candle while negative divergence in daily RSI is clearly visible. It broke out the higher end of the range 11,180-11,440 and touched the high of 11,495. However, sell-off on the last session of the week led the benchmark index back below 11,440," Stewart & Mackertich Wealth Management said.

Hence, staying cautious on rise is advised and the Nifty getting into a sideways movement with negative bias in coming few sessions is likely, it feels. "A short-term retracement against the broader uptrend is likely. Hence, intraday bulls may find difficulty breaking out 11,500 as of now. However, breaking out 11,500 may again initiate a rise up to 11,550 and 11,650. But, that looks unlikely at this juncture analyzing the overall chart pattern."

The research house said further, thorough technical study of the weekly as well as the daily chart patterns suggests, Nifty broader trading range for the coming week is expected to be 11,320-11,550.

Futures & Options

Maximum call open interest (OI) of 41.51 lakh contracts was seen at the 11,500 strike price. This will act as a crucial resistance level for August series. This was followed by the 11,600 strike price, which now holds 27.57 lakh contracts in open interest, and 11,700, which has accumulated 24.34 lakh contracts in open interest.

Maximum put open interest of 50.70 lakh contracts was seen at the 11,000 strike price. This will act as a crucial support level for August series. This was followed by the 11,200 strike price, which now holds 43.32 lakh contracts in open interest, and the 11,300 strike price, which has now accumulated 41.12 lakh contracts in open interest.

"The Call base of 11,500 remained almost unchanged despite the Nifty testing these levels. At the same time, significant additions were seen at Put strikes of 11,200 and 11,300 during the week," ICICIdirect Research said.

It believes 11,300 is likely to act as immediate support for the Nifty in the ongoing momentum. "Any extended profit booking should be seen only if the Nifty moves below 11,300."

The PCR OI for the Nifty continued to rise in the current uptrend where no major profit booking took place as traders are getting more comfortable in writing Put options. At the same time, current Nifty futures open interest is highest since January 2018.

"With high PCR OI and high Nifty open interest, we believe consolidation is more likely than continued momentum. However, positive bias should be maintained till we see some sharp closure of positions," the research house said.
