    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Despite a flat start to the week, domestic markets lost ground to slip into negative territory tracking dull global cues and mixed corporate earnings. Continuous selling by FIIs during the week fanned investor cautiousness. 

    Global markets turned weak although the European Central Bank decided to keep policy rates unchanged despite the inflationary pressure while slow GDP growth in the US tested investor confidence. 

    Private sector banks witnessed a fatigue week although the sector witnessed improvement in business along with better asset quality. 

    India’s manufacturing and services PMI data to be released next week will be a key indicator in determining the economic progress for the month of October. 

    Additionally, decisions of the Fed in its meeting next week will be a major factor that will drive global equities in the coming days.

    Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments:

    The markets have closed at a crucial point. Today's low of the Nifty has become a support for the short term trend. 

    If we break 17550-17500, sell signals would get activated which can drag the index down to 17200. 

    On the upside 17900 is a stiff resistance and any expectations of trading on the long side will only emerge post this level. Stops are wide and traders should exercise extreme caution.

    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Markets traded under pressure for the second consecutive session and lost nearly a percent, in continuation to the prevailing corrective phase.  

    After the sharp decline in early trades, the benchmark recovered almost vertically in no time but selling pressure at the higher levels again pushed the bulls on the back foot. Finally, the Nifty ended down by 1% at 17,672 levels. A mixed trend was witnessed on the sectoral front wherein IT and banking were the top losers.

    Earnings disappointment combined with feeble global cues is weighing on the sentiment. Apart from the earnings announcements, participants will be closely eyeing the upcoming US Fed meet and auto sales numbers for cues. Indications are pointing towards further slides, so participants should maintain a cautious approach and prefer a hedged approach.

    Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:

    After showing a strong volatile week, index closed a week at 17672 with loss of more than two percent and formed a bearish candle after forming bearish piercing candle last week hinting weakness. 

    On daily chart index reached to its good support zone 17600-17500 zone. So if mentioned levels survived then one can again expect decent pullback towards 17800-17900 zone, which are the immediate resistance also on the higher side, fresh move only possible above 18k mark.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    The domestic market continued to witness selling as energy and private bank stocks remained under pressure following dull global sentiments. 

    European markets opened weak even as the ECB decided to keep policy rates unchanged despite the inflationary pressure. 

    US futures are trading in red following slow GDP growth and disappointing earnings from tech giants. Decisions of the Fed in its meeting next week will be a major factor that will drive global equities in the coming days

    Joseph Thomas, Head of Research, Emkay Wealth Management:  

    The equity markets trended lower for the week owing to selling pressure from FIIs. The FIIs have been net sellers to the tune of more than Rs 20K crores for the month of October. 

    The valuation risks have been one the main concerns for foreign investors, triggered by the downgrading of Indian equity markets from “overweight” to “neutral” by key global brokerages. 

    The valuation risks are specifically coming to the fore now as few sections of the markets expect growth momentum to slow in the wake of sticky inflation.

    We witnessed yet another day of correction in the market as it failed to sustain above the support levels. Our research shows that it is going to be crucial in the short-term for the market to sustain above the 17600 support zone. 

    If the market is unable to sustain the level of 17600, we can witness lower levels of 17250-17300. Technical indicator suggests, a volatile movement in the market.
