    Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities:

    The choppy trend continued in the market and there is no respite for bulls, after showing upside bounce from the lower support (15635) in previous session. As long as the support holds, the odds of market bounce back remain alive for the next 1-2 sessions. A decisive move below the support is likely to extend weakness to 15500 levels. On the upside bounce, the area of 15800 could be a crucial resistance to be watched.

    Markets traded in a range and ended unchanged, extending the prevailing consolidation phase. Initially, the benchmark opened on firm tracking positive global cues however profit taking at the latter half trimmed all the gains. On the sectoral front, a mixed trend was witnessed. The broader indices continued their outperformance wherein both midcap and small cap ended higher by 0.4% and 0.7% respectively.
    Markets will react to the macroeconomic data viz. IIP and CPI inflation in early trade on Tuesday i.e. July 13. The tussle over the next directional move in the index is still on and upcoming earnings announcement may result in the probable breakout. Meanwhile, we suggest continuing with a selective trading approach while keeping a check on leveraged positions.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Domestic indices started with mild gains hovering around the flat line, however, it trimmed early gains tracking cues from its European peers ahead of the release of key inflation data later today. Shares of small finance banks were in focus today as the RBI allowed the reverse merger with their respective promoter entities. The realty stocks rallied as hopes of demand revival boosted the sector’s outlook.

    S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP securities:

    Markets were volatile and profit booking was expected given the outperformance of the Midcap & Smallcap Indices. As a matter of fact, we have not witnessed such an outperformance for almost 7 years. Today’s trade saw hectic activity and sustained interest in cement & textiles with the latter exhibiting good momentum across market capitalization.

    The market witnessed a volatile movement and failed to breach the resistance level of Nifty 50 Index level of 15800. Market suggests it is prudent to wait for a decisive breakout above 15800 and technical factors to improve before going long in the market. 15620-15650 will be an important support zone. The traders are advised to refrain from building a new buying position until market see further improvement and breakout above 15800.

    The index is struggling! It is unable to sustain at higher levels and hence makes a U-turn at any given instance. We are still stuck in a range which is between 15400 and 15900. Unless either level is not taken out, we will not see a meaningful move.
