    Anindya Banerjee, DVP, Currency Derivatives & Interest Rate Derivatives at Kotak Securities:
     
    The spot rupee closed at the highest level in a month at 74.04 against the dollar on the back of a sharp rise in US treasury bond yields and Brent crude oil prices. Brent crude is trading at the highest level since October 2018 and TSY yields are at the highest levels since June 2021. 

    Fed turning hawkish and rising oil prices, are pushing yields higher. Higher yields and higher oil prices are double negatives for the Rupee, as they can trigger outflows. Over the near term, the rupee could trade within a range of 73.70-74.70 with a slightly upward bias.

    Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities:

    Markets faltered as investors resorted to profit-taking after the record-breaking rally in the last few sessions. Investors booked profit in realty, IT, and select telecom and banking stocks that saw benchmark Nifty plunge sharply but trimmed losses to end below 17800 which is broadly negative. 

    Technically, on daily charts, the index has formed a bearish candle which indicates further weakness from current levels. However, as long as the index is trading above the 20 days SMA, the uptrend texture is intact. We are of the view that the market has completed one leg of correction and now 20 days SMA and 17600 -17550 levels would act as a sacrosanct support zone. 

    For day traders, 17800-17840 would be the intraday resistance level. On the flip side, 17600–17550 would be the strong intraday support zone. The texture of the market is volatile and it will remain volatile till the monthly expiry day.

    Palak Kothari, Research Associate at Choice Broking:

    On a technical front, the Nifty has taken support from the lower band of a rising wedge pattern which suggests an upside rally in coming sessions. Moreover, the Index has taken support from 100 HMA and given closing above the same, which further adds strength to the upside. 

    On four hourly charts, the Index has formed a Hammer candlestick with the support of the 21-Four Hourly Moving Average as well as Hourly Momentum Indicator Stochastic. It has also bounced from the oversold zone with a positive crossover which points to upside movement in the counter. At present, the Index has support at 17,550 levels, while upside resistance comes at 17,950 levels.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Following negative global cues and profit booking in IT and realty sectors, the domestic market hit rough weather, however, it witnessed a rebound towards the closing. Rise in US bond yield and crude oil price along with the Chinese crisis acted as key headwinds to the ongoing rally in the global market. Amid broad-based selling in the domestic market, public sector, energy and metal stocks traded higher.

    S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP securities:

    Highly volatile trade witnessed today with significant swings on either side led by the IT & Oil & Gas Index. The PSE Index put up a stellar show today rising over 3% with power stocks making a smart up move. Despite the smart pullback from the lows of the day, declines were higher than advances in the broader market.

    Ashis Biswas, Head of Technical Research at CapitalVia Global Research:

    The market witnessed a correction and an attempt to hold the level around the Nifty 50 Index level of 17,600. It suggests that 17,550-17,600 will be an important support zone for the market to stay positive in the short term. 

    If the market is able to sustain the level of 17,550-17,600, it can witness higher levels of 18,000. Technical indicator suggests, a volatile movement in the market in a small range between 17,600-18,000.

    Mahesh Kumar,  EVP & Head Capital  & Commodities Market  (Abans Group):

    Precious metals prices rose on Monday morning session, owing to rising safe-haven demand as a result of China's Evergrande Group's contagion risk. The gold surge, however, was short-lived, as the dollar index rose and global bond yields rose, pushing prices lower. 

    If Evergrande's and China's nerves continue to relax, gold is likely to face headwinds once more. After the Fed changed its stance on bond buying in the coming months, gold is now trading at $1740, down considerably from this month's high of $1836.9. US 10-year T-note yield and 10-year German bund yield rose to 2-3/4 month highs on Monday which pushed also gold prices lower.

    Although, Gold is likely to find support from worldwide spread of the delta Covid variant which is likely to crimp the global economic recovery. The overall number of global Covid cases have now surged past 232 million despite the ongoing mass inoculations in several countries.

    Gold prices are projected to continue their short-term downward trend when trading below the 20-day EMA of $1770 and the 50-day EMA of $1790, with immediate support seen around $1736-$1727.

    Gold slips to 1-1/2-month low as dollar, bond yields surge

    Gold prices fell to a 1-1/2-month low on Tuesday, as firmer dollar and soaring U.S. Treasury yields dented the metal's safe-haven appeal, amid more signals emerging that the U.S. Federal Reserve could be shifting towards tighter policy.
