Traders Guide: 10 things to know before market opens on Monday, January 30 – stocks in news, Q3 results and more
Market participants on Friday were in a cautious mood from the beginning and a sharp sell-off in the banking, IT and energy majors further soured the sentiment as the day progressed.
Traders Guide, NSE Nifty50, BSE Sensex: The Indian markets on Friday finally ended a month-long consolidation phase with a breakdown and lost over 1.5 per cent. BSE companies lost 11 lakh crore in market capitalization in the last two trading sessions.
Participants were in a cautious mood from the beginning and a sharp sell-off in the banking, IT and energy majors further soured the sentiment as the day progressed.
Consequently, Nifty slipped below the major support zone of long-term moving average i.e. 200 EMA at 17550 intraday and finally settled at 17,604.35 levels. The broader indices too witnessed a severe fall and shed in the range of 1-1.5 per cent.
Here is a list of things to watch out for on 30 January 2022
What Should Investors Do On Monday?
The carnage in the Adani group stocks cascaded across the board and the banking sector faced the maximum pressure. Participants were already facing challenges due to mixed global cues and caution ahead of the Union Budget and this breakdown has further added to worries.
We are now eyeing the 17,250-17,400 zone as the next support while any rebound toward the 17,750 level would attract selling pressure. We thus reiterate our view to prefer hedged positions and aligning trades according to the trend.

Technically, Nifty has broken down its one-month range of 18200–17800, which is not a good sign; however, 17425 is an immediate support while the 200-DMA of 17300 is a critical support that bulls will try to protect. On the upside, 18000 will act as a critical barrier, and 18200 is a major hurdle.
Nifty Bank has fallen below its 100-DMA decisively, but 40,000 is an immediate psychological support level, while the rising 200-DMA around 39,000 will be the next critical support level. On the upside, the 41500–41725 area will be a critical resistance zone, while 42750 is the next hurdle.
