    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Markets traded lacklustre and lost nearly half a percent, in absence of any major trigger. Firm global cues triggered an upbeat start but it couldn’t hold for long and gradually drifted lower as the day progressed. Among the sectors, profit taking in metal and IT majors combined with the prevailing underperformance of the banking pack led to the decline. Consequently, the Nifty ended lower by 0.5% at 15,687 levels. The broader markets too ended in the red in the range of 0.2-0.4%.
    We’re currently seeing a time-wise correction in the market and it’s likely to end soon. The scheduled monthly expiry of the June month contracts combined with AGM of index heavyweight, Reliance, will keep the participants busy on Thursday i.e. June 24. We reiterate our advice to continue with the “buy on dips” approach until we see some sign of exhaustion or trend reversal.

    Sahaj Agrawal, Head of Research- Derivatives at Kotak Securities
    Nifty failed to maintain its upward thrust; along with this the broader market health has also weakened. The larger setup suggests a possible short term correction up to 15300 odd levels in the next few weeks. We suggest reducing long aggression and buying on aggressive corrections.

    Rahul Gupta, Head Of Research- Currency, Emkay Global Financial Services:
    The USDINR spot is following the trend in dollar. Fed Powell downplaying the threat of tapering is not weighing on the spot, rather Fed rate hike worries has kept all the dollar bulls active. So until the spot tries above 73.75-73.80, it will remain afloat with immediate resistance around 74.50 and then 74.75 zone. While the major supports lies around 73.75-73.50-73.45.

    Ashis Biswas, Head of Technical Research at CapitalVia Global Research:

    The market witnessed a very volatile movement in the range of 15700-15850. It is suggested, trading above 15700 is positive from a short-term perspective. If the market closes below 15700, market expects a correction till the level of 15500. The technical indicator suggests, a volatile movement in the market in the range of 15500-15900. As such the traders are advised to refrain from building a fresh buying position until further decisive movement is seen in the market.
