    Nifty Could Move Towards 15,000 Soon

    "Nifty index opened gap up above 14,800 but remained consolidative in a broader range of 100 points. It continued its positive streak for third consecutive session and now trading above its 50 DMA. Index closed positive with the gains of around 100 points and continues its higher lows formation of the last four sessions. It formed a Doji candle on daily scale but a Bullish candle on weekly frame which indicates that declines are being bought while hurdles are intact at higher zones. Now, it has to hold above 14,750 to witness an upmove towards 15,000 -15,050 while on the downside support exists at 14,700 and 14,600 zones," said Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal.

    Rupee Outlook

    "The USDINR spot has continued the downtrend and has lacked enthusiasm ahead of US NFP data. The primary reason is traders are focusing on global recovery and increase in vaccination drives in the euro zone. Also, seems like the local fx market has likely factored in the slow economic recovery amid escalating coronavirus cases in India, but still some cautious sentiments prevail. Thus, next week’s USDINR trading range will mostly depend on how DXY reacts to NFP data. If improving economic data stokes inflation worries and leads to expectations that the Fed will reduce monetary stimulus, that could boost US yields and the dollar. Technically, USDINR spot is hovering near the crucial support zone of 73.50. A break below 73.50 will push the spot to 73.25-73.00, while a reversal may push USDINR spot towards the crucial resistance of 74.25," said Rahul Gupta, Head Of Research- Currency at Emkay Global Financial Services.

    Expert's Take on Market

    "Market opened with a gap up tracking heavyweights gains and was able to maintain its optimism to the end, supported by the global market.

    "The markets have held 14,700 smartly! We need to see if these levels can hold on Monday; if it can, we should be headed to 15,200. If we do not hold, we will retrace back to the support levels of 14,400. Holding 14,400 is imperative for the Nifty," said Manish Hathiramani, Proprietary Index Trader and Technical Analyst at Deen Dayal Investments.

    "Rupee traded positive again as the market keeps cheering the RBI statements and financial aid which it provided, along with weakness in the dollar index which helps the rupee strengthen even strongly. The range remains at the higher side at 73.75 and on the downside till 73.25 can be seen looking at the current trend. Once the dollar index starts covering only the rupee will be seen weak," said Jateen Trivedi, Senior Research Analyst at LKP Securities.

    Geojit Research on Mahindra CIE Automotive: Q1CY21 revenue came at 32 percent YoY on the back of strong growth from both India and European business. The growth was largely driven by strong order intake and new customer addition. Despite weak industry growth, increase business with existing customers owing to supplier consolidation and shifting the production to India as primary hub for export is adding value to the company.

    We firmly believe that the strong cost control initiatives and Europe’s positive opening will help MCIE to tide over the crisis. We value MCIE at 14x CY22 EPS and upgrade our rating from accumulate to buy.
