COMMENT:: Markets witnessed a relief rally on favourable global cues

"After three days of risk aversion, the domestic market experienced a relief rally in response to a bullish trend in global markets. The tight COVID lockdown in China, however, has negatively impacted the forecast for global growth. FII interest has also reduced significantly as a result of the increased likelihood of stricter Fed policies."
- Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services

Tech view: 18,200 may provide immediate support for Nify

"The Nifty started flat following global peers and moved up higher by the end of the session. On the higher end, it moved back above 18,200. A bullish harami pattern on the daily chart suggests a recovery in the term. The trend looks sideways to positive. Going forward, 18,200 may provide immediate support below which the index may drift down towards 18,100. On the higher end, resistance is visible at 18,300/ 18,450."
