    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Markets rebounded sharply and gained nearly one and a half percent, following supportive global cues. After the gap-up start, the benchmark traded volatile in a range however buoyancy on the broader front kept the participants occupied till the end. Eventually, the Nifty index ended positive at 17,200.8 levels; up by 1.5%. 

    Though markets are not offering any cues over the next directional move yet, the sustainability of the 16,800 zone in Nifty is keeping bulls’ hope alive. 

    Having said that, we feel participants should continue with a cautious approach and maintain their focus on risk management until we see a decisive close above 17,400.  Among the sectors, the auto looks upbeat and select stocks from energy and FMCG pack also seeing decent traction so plan your positions accordingly.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

    Strong buying interest from domestic investors and positive global trend resulted in a rebound. But volatility persists due to lockdown in China, Russia – Ukraine war and rate hikes. 

    However, dips are encouraging investors to accumulate quality stocks. 

    In a range bound market, it is advised to stick with sectors which are expected to be least impacted by inflation and rising bond yield, banking, IT, Pharma and themes like green energy.

    Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas:

    The Nifty provided some breathing space to the bulls on April 26, who were beaten down in the last couple of sessions. With the bounce today, the index has filled up the recent gap area of 17054 – 17149. It halted near a falling trendline on the hourly chart, which is around 17200. 

    Additionally, the key daily moving averages are standing as barriers near 17200-17400 zone. The overall structure suggests that the index is trading near its short term hurdles & can slip down again in the coming sessions. 

    On the downside, the Nifty can test the swing low of 16824. This bearish stance holds true as long as the index trades below the swing high of 17415.

    Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities:

    While markets are in an oversold position, the falling yields in US markets and sliding crude oil prices came as a major respite for investors who partially covered their short positions. However, other concerns like China's coronavirus problems, likely interest rate hike woes in the US and the conflict between Russia & Ukraine will continue to be potential market spoilers. 

    Technically, once again the Nifty re-claimed the 17000 mark and succeeded to close above the 50-day SMA which is grossly positive for the markets. 

    After a promising pullback rally the index is trading near the 200-day SMA. For the short term traders, the support has shifted to 17100 from 17000. We are of the view that the intraday formation is positive and it is heading towards 17300-17350. 

    On the flip side, a quick intraday correction is not ruled out if the index trades below 17100 and below the same, it may retest the level of 17050-17000.

    S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP securities: 

    Benchmark indices gained one and a half percentage today on expectations of record GST collections for April even as FII ownership dropped to multi-year lows at 20%. 

    Bajaj Group stocks, Autos & Real Estate stocks staged a smart recovery today with almost all sectoral indices ending in the Green. 

    FII's continue to be the second highest owners of Financials in India after the GOI despite the sector seeing the highest FII selling during the last one year. 

    The broader markets witnessed buying interest in Footwear stocks with half a dozen listed entities gaining share in both value for money as well as aspirational brands. Earnings expectations also buoyed stocks of state run enterprises of Gujarat in today's trade.

    Norbert Rücker, Head Economics and Next Generation Research, Julius Baer:
     
    The oil market remains on a roller coaster ride with prices swinging up and down sharply. The concerns around China’s pandemic struggles and its economic impacts offset the fears surrounding the supply gap left by Russia’s shunned oil, which in fact seems less severe than initially feared. 

    Thanks to strategy storage releases, the petro-nations exiting their output restrictions, and the US shale business lifting production to fresh records, the oil market should ultimately cope well with Russia’s shortfall. We see lower prices in the longer term.
