    Nifty witnessed a gravitational pull, unable to take morning optimism in its stride, as it faltered in today’s late trade after WTI oil spiked to $106 a barrel on reports that Germany has dropped its opposition to EU ban on crude imports from Russia. Traders also fear on implementation of new F&O margin rule levied from Monday (2nd May) followed by US Fed reserve interest rate hike meeting scheduled on 3&4th May-22. 

    As per markets readings Fed will raise interest rates in the range of 50-75 bps. Technically, the line in the sand is at Nifty’s support at 16807 mark. Below the level, the index could swiftly move to 16597 and then aggressive inter-month targets at 14251-14500 zone.

    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Markets remained volatile and ended with a cut of nearly a percent, in continuation of the prevailing consolidation phase. The benchmark opened higher amid supportive global cues and inched higher gradually as the day progressed. However, the news of war intensifying between Russia-Ukraine completely changed the tone in the latter half. 

    As a result, the Nifty index erased all the gains and settled around the day’s low, to close at 17,102 levels. The selling pressure was widespread wherein banking, auto and energy lost maximum. The broader markets too ended in the red and lost in the range of 0.8-1.3%.
     
    We’ve been seeing the index oscillating in a broader range for the last two weeks and there’s no clarity over the next directional move yet. We reiterate our cautious view and suggest waiting for a decisive break from the 16,800-17,300 range. Apart from the global cues, domestic factors like earnings, LIC IPO and auto sales numbers will also be in focus.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Dips were encouraging investors to accumulate quality stocks with focus on defensives & domestic growth sectors like manufacturing & capital goods. 

    However, a shrink in the US economy and rate hike expectations in the upcoming Fed meet triggered sell-off in the global market. 

    Domestic market reduced exposure ahead of the shortened next week and opening of India’s largest IPO.

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

    The Nifty witnessed a volatile action in the week gone by & ultimately formed an Inside bar on the weekly chart. For the last couple of weeks, the index is oscillating near its key weekly moving averages & this has developed as a triangular pattern on the daily chart. 

    On April 29, the index faced resistance near the junction of the swing high on the daily chart & the 20 DMA i.e. near 17400. Thereon the Nifty nosedived towards the end of the session & formed a bearish outside bar as well as an Engulfing bear candle on the daily chart. 

    Overall structure suggests that the index can continue to consolidate in the range of 17000-17400 & once the swing low of 16958 is breached then the index can tumble down towards 16600.
