Here’s how analysts read the market pulse:-
Independent analyst Manish Shah said the 15,900-15,950 zone has been tested three times. “The general rule is that the price should go through the fourth time. Odds of an upside breakout are higher,” he said.
Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal Securities said a decisive breakout of the 15,632-15,915 range will commence the next leg of the rally. “A hold above the 15,800 level is a must for Nifty50 to move towards 15,915 level,” he said.
That said, here’s a look at what some of the key indicators are suggesting for Wednesday’s action:
Nasdaq hits new high; inflation data weighs
The Nasdaq index reversed early declines to hit a record high on Tuesday, helped by a rise in growth-linked megacap stocks and as earnings season kicked off on a positive note, while a solid rise in consumer prices in June weighed on sentiment. At 10:12 a.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 50.34 points, or 0.14 per cent, at 34,945.84, the S&P 500 was down 1.57 points, or 0.04 per cent, at 4,383.06, and the Nasdaq Composite was up 17.86 points, or 0.12 per cent, at 14,751.10.
F&O: VIX drops to give bullish vibes
India VIX fell 2.83 per cent from 12.99 to 12.62 level. A decline in the VIX after the recent spurt has again provided stability to the market to commence the next move. On the options front, maximum Put OI stood at 15,500 levels followed by 15,000, while maximum Call OI was seen at 16,000 followed by 15,800 levels.
