Traders Guide: From stocks in news to Nifty outlook - 10 things to know before market opens on Monday, February 27
Traders Guide: The last week’s fall has almost engulfed gains of the last three weeks and Nifty has reached closer to the budget day low that is 17,353.40.
Traders Guide: The Indian markets pared early gains and ended lower on Friday in line with weak trend in Asian markets and concerns that the US Federal Reserve might raise interest rates further to curb inflation.
Fresh foreign fund outflows and selling pressure in HDFC twins also dented investor sentiments. The BSE Sensex declined 141.87 points or 0.24 per cent to settle at 59,463.93 despite a firm start and the NSE Nifty dipped 45.45 points or 0.26 per cent to end at 17,465.80.
"The Nifty opened on a positive note however it could not sustain at higher levels and as the day progressed it continued to drift lower to close the day on a negative note for the sixth consecutive day," said Jatin Gedia, Technical Research Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas.

What should investors do on Monday?
The last week’s fall has almost engulfed gains of the last three weeks and Nifty has reached closer to the budget day low that is 17,353.40. It might take a breather next week initially but the tone is likely to remain negative, with the next crucial support at 17,100.
Further, correction in US markets could add to the pessimism. Amid all, the majority of the sectors are facing heat, but the continuous underperformance of the banking and financials would remain the key concern.
We thus recommend continuing with the “sell on rise” approach until the Nifty shows some signs of reversal.
- Ajit Mishra, VP - Technical Research, Religare Broking Ltd.
Technically, we are in a short-term decline, but we are very close to the 200-day moving average's critical support level, which also happens to be the low for the budget day. Bulls will therefore attempt to protect the Nifty's 200-day moving average.
If Nifty is able to maintain its 200-DMA, the index would form a double bottom, which might trigger a market rebound. On the upside, the 20-DMA near 17,770 will continue to serve as a significant hurdle; above it, we may anticipate a short-covering move in the direction of the 18,000–18,100 range. However, there will be more selling pressure if Nifty is unable to hold its 200-DMA, and 17,130 will be the next support level.
Similar trends can be seen in Banknifty, where the 200-DMA and budget day's low are both close to 39,400. If it can maintain this level, we can anticipate a rebound in the direction of 41,000 and 41,500, but if it drops below its 200-DMA, we can anticipate further selling pressure around 38,500.
