    Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities:
     
    Markets witnessed healthy short covering towards the closing hours that helped key indices to reverse the 3-day losing streak. With the US FOMC minutes out of the way now, the market is more or less getting prepared for the likely rate hikes, and hence we saw strong buying on the F&O expiry day. 

    While we may see bouts of selling going ahead due to other negative factors like higher inflation, continuous FII selling, & the Russia-Ukraine conflict, relief rallies will still be seen amidst volatility. 

    On daily charts, the Nifty has formed a long leg Hammer formation which supports further uptrend from the current levels. 

    For the trend following traders, 16050-16000 would act as the key support zone. Trading above the same, the index could rally up to 16300-16375. On the flip side, below 16000, uptrends would be vulnerable. Below which, bulls may prefer to exit out from the trading long positions and index could retest the level of 15900-15850.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    After the heavy sell-off market showed signs of exhaustion and could bounce for the short to medium-term. Technically, the broad market is in the oversold territory and fundamentally valuations are just below the three-year average. 

    A key reason for the current correction is selling by FIIs and a reduction in domestic buying. A drop in FIIs selling will be an important reason for the bounce. For this, the actions to be undertaken by FED and RBI in June will be an important factor. 

    Moreover, we should note that the fiscal measure announced by the Indian government to control inflation is positive for the domestic market.

    Yash Gupta- Equity Research Analyst, Angel One:

    Torrent Pharma has announced that company will be discounting its USA operation related to Liquide business. Torrent has taken this decision after looking at the current financial viability of its liquid business along with the future investment require to bring the pipeline product in the market and increase in the competition.

    We believe that it’s a positive decision by the Torrent Pharma as in past we have seen increase in the competition in the USA market and continuous price erosion in the USA market. 

    Company will able to save cost of operating the facility i.e. Rs 135 crores per annum. After a very long time any Indian company has taken a decision to close down any part of business in USA.

    Jefferies View On Coal India

    The broking house Jefferies has maintained a hold rating on Coal India and raised the target price to Rs 175 from Rs 160 per share.

    EBITDA was 18 percent above the estimate. The topline outlook has improved led by pickup in volumes and e-auction prices but higher staff cost due to workers' wage revision should pose a headwind.

    The valuation is reasonable, but long-term outlook remains uncertain, CNBC-TV18 reported.
