    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Markets extended yesterday’s rebound and gained over 2%, tracking recovery in global indices. After the flat start, the benchmark inched gradually higher as the day progressed and settled closer to the day’s high. 

    All sectors, barring metal, participated in the move wherein heavyweights like Reliance, HDFC Bank and Infosys contributed half of the index gains. In the latter half, short-covering further added to the recovery. The broader markets too participated wherein both Midcap and Smallcap ended higher by 2.4% and 2.1% respectively.
    The recent rebound is in line with the global counterparts and it would be too early to call it a reversal. Besides the geopolitical updates, domestic factor i.e. states' election results will also be in focus. We expect volatility to remain high so participants should prefer hedged trades.

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

    The Nifty had formed a bullish outside bar along with an Engulfing Bull candle on the daily chart on March 08. As a follow through of these bullish patterns, the index witnessed sustained recovery on March 09. 

    On the way up, the index has crossed the key hourly moving averages as well as the key hurdle of 16200. The hourly momentum indicator, which was showing positive divergence, is now holding out firmly in the positive territory. 

    The overall structure shows that the recovery has started from a strong support zone i.e. 15700-15800 & the recovery is expected to continue further. Going ahead, the index is expected to test the crucial barrier of 16800 where it had stumbled in the last week.

    Mohit Nigam, Head - PMS, Hem Securities:

    Even though oil prices surged due to a US import embargo on Russian oil, Indian benchmark indices were off to a strong start today. Buying was seen across the BSE sectoral front, with stocks from the Energy, TECK, and IT counters attracting the most attention. 

    The general market breadth is in favor of increase today. European markets rebounded as buyers bought stocks that had been battered in the recent market selloff. After Ukrainian President Zelenskyy announced the country was no longer interested in NATO membership, investors bought beaten-down shares in the hopes of de-escalating the Russia-Ukraine war. 

    Net domestic positive flows are currently sustaining the enormous withdrawals observed by FIIs on a daily basis. The robust SIP flow of 11k crore monthly, which continues to expand, accounts for a substantial portion of the positive flows.

    On the technical front, immediate support and resistance in Nifty 50 are 16100 and 16500 respectively. For the Bank Nifty immediate support and resistance are 33200 and 34500 respectively.

    Norbert Rücker Head of Economics & Next Generation Research at Julius Baer:
    The isolation of Russia leaves a gap on the oil market. The fluidity of the situation and the uncertainty of how supply chains will adjust creates extreme nervousness on oil markets and fuels the oil price spike. 

    The United States’ and the United Kingdom’s ban of Russian oil is not a fundamental game changer. The world is not about to run out of oil. We are witnessing a price crisis rather than a supply crisis. Beyond the near-term uncertainty, we have confidence that the oil price spike follows more or less known patterns. Such sharp up moves usually follow down moves within weeks and months, not years.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Domestic indices carried forward yesterday’s gains following a clawback in European markets and US futures as smart investors saw value in the current market valuations. Dip buying is noticed in heavyweights, defensives like IT & Pharma, and value buying in Pvt banks. 

    Oil prices continued to rise after the US banned Russian oil imports. The domestic market is also reacting positively to exit polls and in anticipation of in-line state election results. 

    In the near term, the domestic market will trade as per the positive or negative surprise in the state election results and global trend.

    S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP securities:

    D-Street Bulls finally held the upper hand today on reports suggesting that the Ukrainian President is no longer pressing for NATO membership. 

    With Covid behind, short-covering coupled with the exit poll results buoyed the bulls as benchmark indices rose almost 3% in late afternoon trade with major sectoral indices ending in the Green. 

    Domestic investors who have reposed faith in the GOI policies amidst the turmoil and volatility would be keenly watching the impact of rising oil & commodity prices on inflation and corporate earnings.
