Banknifty To Push Markets On Upside

IT, Pharma, Metal Stocks Push Markets to New Highs

Our Analysis

This week, In the absence of any major domestic trigger the bulls failed to keep the momentum. In between, the default by the PMC bank, along with the fraudulent allegation on IBULHSGFIN had prompted the investor to turn cautious and sell the equities, thus emerged a profit-booking in the d-street.
Further on the flipside, The improvised MoM Auto sales number happen to bring some positive momentum for the automobile industry, a long-lived pessimism seems to get vanished in this sector.

Besides all this, The much-awaited RBI policy came with a 25 bps rate cut. The extremely accommodative stance shows that the central bank and the government are in sync to revive the economy and would work together till they achieve the same. Eventually, the repo rate is likely to settle at 4.75 percent in this rate cut cycle. However, RBI lowering its growth forecast for the current fiscal is a key negative.

Going forward, The Q2 earnings are about to start with TCS and Infy from next week. On a technical note, Nifty had completed its 50 percent Fibonacci retracement from its high, on the downside the next levels to watch out would be 11,080-11,050, while 11,475 will be the steep resistance on the upside.
