MARKET WRAP: Sensex ends 115 pts lower, Nifty at 10,741; PSU banks slip

MARKET COMMENT Mustafa Nadeem, CEO, Epic Research  Indecisiveness, Bank Nifty expiry along with negative global cues saw Nifty drift below 10,800 and lose marginal points to make a 'Bearish belt hold' pattern. A bearish belt hold is a one candle bearish formation which has a Shaven head; The high and Open for the day is identical while the close is just a tad higher from the days low. A shaven head indicates the selling pressure on the upside which persists as it was heavy since the open of the day. A close near to the day low indicates the further bearish sentiment.    It has been the sixth consecutive day where we have seen Nifty trading between the range of 10850. It was bank Nifty weekly expiry that called in writers to take advantage. We expect the market to remain positive while the time may further test the patience of bulls. We maintain the 'buy on a dip' strategy though all eyes will be on the OPEC meet and price of crude oil.

COMMENT Indranil Sen Gupta, economist, AsiaPac, India, Bank of America Merrill Lynch   Dovish Reserve Bank of India (RBI) minutes support our call that the RBI Monetary policy committee (MPC) will be on hold if rains are normal. We would have preferred that the RBI MPC wait out growth/inflation base effects rather than hike rates on 6 June at this stage of recovery. Still, this puts policy uncertainty out of the way. ‎That said, markets do need to calm down and stop wishing rate hikes on itself (and the RBI).  In fact, the retention of neutral stance should indicate that this is not a tightening cycle.
