TECHNICAL VIEW | Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities

The benchmark Nifty remained range bound ahead of the RBI policy meet. The index briefly slipped below 16950 as it failed to sustain at the lower level leading to a close above 17000. On the lower end, bulls have managed to protect the 200 DMA on a closing basis. The momentum indicator is in a bearish crossover. The trend remains weak; however, the proximity to the crucial support may induce a pullback in the market. On the higher end, resistance is visible at 17150-17200. Above 17200, the Nifty may move towards 17500. On the other hand, a decisive fall below 16950 may trigger a panic button.

MARKET COMMENT | Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services

In search of a safer dollar and elevated bond yields, foreign investors are withdrawing from Indian equities, resulting in the decline of the domestic market. In contrast to the recent trend of sector performance, banks and autos are exhibiting negative bias, while IT and pharma are showcasing resilience. Crude price are closing down, despite expectations that OPEC+ will take more action to cut production in the coming meeting, due to weakening global economy.
