    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Uncertainties await the market for next week, be it global economic data points or geo-political uncertainties related to Indo-China border tensions. Indian markets have been in sync with its global counterparts and will have an impact. Markets seem to have lost its momentum in the near-term and could be heading into a round of consolidation. Investors advised to be alert and cautious.

    Chandan Taparia, Vice President | Analyst-Derivatives, Motilal Oswal Financial Services:   

    Nifty index opened negative in line with weak Global cues and during the day it drifted towards key support of 11300-11333 zones. However, in the mid of the day it recovered by around 100 points but failed to hold above 11450 zones and closed the session near to its opening levels as intraday bounce were sold into. 

    It negated the formation of higher lows of last three trading sessions and formed a Bearish Engulfing pattern on weekly scale which has a Bearish implication if follow up selling happens. Now index is facing multiple hurdles at 11450-11550 zones and till it remains below the same weakness could be seen towards 11200 then 11111 levels.

    S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP Securities: 

    While Geopolitical Issues dominated trading today on the back of an already weak global cues in opening trade we did witness bargain hunting amidst the mayhem in select segments. Consumer Durables and Rural based stocks were bought into on the back of a well distributed bountiful monsoon and improved crop sowing this season.

    Abhishek Bansal, Founder Chairman, Abans Group:

    The rupee is likely to appreciate further, versus the US dollar, towards 72.80 and 72.40 levels, after the RBI’s indication that rupee appreciation could reduce imported inflation in India. 

    The Indian rupee has appreciated nearly 3% in the last week, over foreign capital, which is flowing in, by way of both institutional and direct investments (FII’s and FPI’s). An appreciation in domestic currency reduces the net import costs.

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

    We managed to stick above the 11300 level which is a saving grace for the bulls until markets reopen on Monday. If we breach this level on a closing basis, we could enter into a short term bear phase. On the upside, we need to get past 11600 for the markets to continue its upward momentum.

    Sanjeev Zarbade, VP PCG Research, Kotak Securities:

    The BSE-30 Index declined 2% in the current week. The market remained cautious on weaker-than-expected GDP prints and weak GST collections even while PMI and auto sales showed some improvement. Bharti Airtel, IndusInd Bank and Titan Company were the among top gainers, while Bajaj Auto, NTPC and Power Grid were among the major losers in the BSE-30 Index. 

    On the economy front, real GDP growth of (-)23.9% for 1QFY20 revealed the extent of economic damage from Covid-19. FPIs bought equities worth USD 184 mn over the past five trading sessions while DIIs sold USD 287 mn worth of equities in the same period. 

    Indo-China border tensions, rising cases of infections, global market correction and valuations are the key risks to the Sensex, in our view. We see risk reward ratio getting unfavourable at these levels. Advice caution at the current juncture.
