Q) Markets closed the week with a freaky Friday. What led to the price action in the week gone by?
A) The benchmark index plunged nearly 3% as a new variant of COVID raised concerns over the globe. Overall, the bears were driving the market throughout the week as there was a heavy correction in both indices.
On the sectoral front, all the sectors ended in the red zone, the auto sector saw the highest loss of 8.4 per cent followed by the Realty and PSU Bank sector, which lost 6 per cent.
While there was good action in some defensive stocks like Vedanta, Indiabull Housing saw more than 14 per cent gains, ZEE, and Cipla have also contributed 9 per cent gains over a week.
For the coming week, the Pharma stocks could be a good bet for the traders.
Q) What does the data for the November expiry tell you about the December series? Where do Nifty and NiftyBank headed in the new series?
A) The bears continued in action throughout the week, as the benchmark index dragged more than 4 per cent on a weekly basis while Banknifty plunged by 5 per cent in a week to close at 36025.50 levels on the last trading day of the week.
Technically, the index has continued the breakdown of the Head & Shoulder pattern after retesting the neckline, which indicates bearishness in the index.
Moreover, the index has moved below the 100-Days SMA and has also formed a Bearish Marubozu candle on the daily chart.
However, the momentum indicator RSI & Stochastic have been trading at oversold territory. Hence, we are expecting a volatile move in the market for the coming week.
The Nifty index has good support at 16700 levels while on the higher side, it may find the resistance around 17300-17600 levels while Banknifty has support at 35300-34800 levels and resistance at 36600-37400 levels.
Q) Sectorally, auto, PSU banks stocks took the beating. They were one of the top sectoral losers in the week gone by. What led to the price action?
A) Nifty Auto & PSU Banks fell badly on a weekly basis -- both the indices have corrected more than 7 per cent last week. On the technical chart, PSU bank has closed at 50% Retracement Levels of its prior rally, which could be immediate support for the Index.
Moreover, a momentum indicator Stochastic has also slipped below the oversold zone. Hence, some short covering is expected in the index in the near term.
In the PSU basket, the investors must keep an eye on SBI, Canara Bank, Bank of Baroda & IndusInd Bank.
Nifty Auto also witnessed further profit booking during the week. Technically, the index has confirmed a breakdown of the Double Top formation on the daily chart and closed below the lower Bollinger Band, which indicates further correction in the near term.
The price has also moved below the prior support of 10850 levels. On the weekly chart, the index has formed Bearish Marubozu Candlestick.
If the index managed to close below 10700 levels, the correction could be extended till 10400/10250 levels while on the higher side, the resistance is around 11200 levels.
Q) What should investors follow – buy on a dip or sell on rally strategy?
A) The benchmark index has already corrected almost 8% from the all-time high of 18604 levels. Fundamentally, nothing has changed drastically for the domestic equities other than profit booking due to overvaluation and slowdown in earnings momentum.
Hence, one should follow the buy on dip strategy to make good returns. The frontline stocks can be a good bet for the long term.
Q) Unlock themes such hotels, leisure, travel, cinema felt the heat. Do you think these sectors will remain under pressure in the coming week?
A) Yes, themes such as hotels, leisure, travel, and cinema will remain under pressure as long as new covid-19 variants hammer global sentiments over the uncertainty of the global economy.
In the last few months, a large rally in tourism and hospitality industry stocks was primarily driven by the strong demand recovery, which is now dented by the arrival of the new covid-19 variant.
Travel, Hotels, and entertainments stocks are witnessing a strong recovery on the back of relaxation in Covid-19 restrictions and the on-going wedding season and festive season.
