Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking, said the market has recovered more than 10% from the bottom over the past five weeks, and now we are closing in on the major hurdle of the previous swing at 16,800. in Nifty. “A decisive break above this mark would maintain momentum and help the index test 17,400. In case of consolidation, the 16,250-16,500 area would serve as support.”
Anand James, Chief Market Strategist at
said that while major falls are not expected unless 16,485 gives way, the outlook for the same next week could increase if Nifty finds itself unable to push past the 16,690-710 region.
That said, here’s a look at what some key indicators suggest for Monday’s action:
Wall Street closes lower
Shares fell on Friday, giving back some of their gains from earlier in the week as concerns mounted over the global economy and the earnings outlook for major internet companies.
The S&P 500 fell 0.9% to snap a three-day rally that had taken Wall Street to its highest level in six weeks. The Nasdaq composite led the market lower with a 1.9% decline following worse-than-expected earnings reports from Snap, Seagate Technology and other tech-focused companies.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average held up better, slipping 0.4% more modestly. This was largely because the settlor of American Express gave an encouraging earnings report and said its cardholders were spending more.
European stocks close higher
European stocks recorded their best week in two months on Friday as worries about an energy supply crisis eased, bringing some calm to investors worried about a sharp rise in interest rates and a political crisis in Italy.
The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed 0.3% higher at its highest level since June 10, while for the week it jumped almost 2.9%. Meanwhile, the euro came under pressure after a key survey suggested the single-currency zone could be on the verge of recession due to collapsing demand and rising costs.
Tech View: Solid bullish candle on weekly charts
