COMMENT :: 'Market seems to have factored in a moderation in the pace of rate hike'

Despite unfavourable global cues, the domestic market reversed its early losses to trade at record highs. Following the decline in oil prices, oil & gas stocks led the rally in anticipation of margin gains, as ongoing protests in China fuelled demand concerns. Going ahead, global markets will depend on Powell’s speech on Wednesday, which is crucial in maintaining the momentum, as the market seems to have factored in a moderation in the pace of rate hike.

COMMENT :: 'Higher bottom formation on intraday charts indicate continuation of uptrend in near future'

The benchmark indices held the positive momentum, the Nifty ends 50 points higher while the Sensex was up by 211 points. Among sectors, Oil and Gas and Energy indices rallied most whereas Metal stocks corrected sharply as a result Metal index shed over 1 percent.

Higher bottom formation on intraday charts indicating continuation of uptrend in the near future. For the trend following traders, now 18,400-18,350/62,200-62,000 would be the sacrosanct support zones; above which the index may hit the fresh all time high or 18,605-186,50/62,750-63,000.

On the flip side, below 18,350/62,000 uptrend would be vulnerable. Below the same, traders may prefer to exit out from the trading long positions.
