MARKET LIVE: Sensex, Nifty flat in choppy session; Titan, L&T top drags


Stock market highlights: 
The S&P BSE Sensex exhibited wild swings in trade on Friday as investors remained worried about global growth outlook. The 30-pack index gyrated in a range of 732 points intra-day, and settled 135 points, or 0.26 per cent, lower at 51,360.

The NSE Nifty50, meanwhile, closed at 15,294, down 67 points or 0.44 per cent. Bajaj twins, Coal India, JSW Steel, Apollo Hospitals, ITC, ICICI Bank, RIL, and HDFC Bank were the top Nifty gainers, rising between 0.8 per cent and 3 per cent.

On the flipside, Titan Company, Wipro, HDFC Life, Shree Cement, BPCL, Dr Reddy's Labs, and Asian Paints were the top drags, down up to 6 per cent.

Sectorally, the Nifty Pharma index was worst hit, down over 2 per cent on the NSE, while the Nifty Bank added the most, up 0.75 per cent.

In the broader markets, the BSE MidCap and SmallCap indices underperformed the benchmarks and slipped  up to 0.9 per cent. 

Global markets
European markets were higher on Friday, but remained on course for a bruising week as global stocks reacted to policy tightening from major central banks. The pan-European Stoxx 600 gained 0.8 per cent in early trade after an uncertain open.

On Wall Street, futures linked to headline indices advanced between 0.8 per cent and 1.2 per cent. Earlier in Asia, Nikkei shed about 2 per cent, Kospi fell 0.43 per cent, while Hang Seng gained 1 per cent.

Nifty tech view: Further upmove possible only above 15,500

Nifty remained volatile before closing around the previous low.

During the day, it found resistance around 15,400. Going forward, 15,400-15,500 is likely to remain a crucial resistance zone.

Further upmove looks possible only above 15,500.

On the flip side, drop down towards 15,000 looks very much possible if Nifty sustains below 15,300.

Closing view: Inflation, policy tightening forcing market to discount a possible recession

Rising inflation and policy tightening by global central banks are forcing the market to discount the possibilities of recession.

With central banks’ policy tone pointing towards continued rate hikes of higher magnitude, we can expect FIIs to maintain their selling spree.

The domestic market will continue to trade with high volatility in the near term, however, the ongoing corrections are opportunities in disguise on a medium to long-term investments.
