Market Still Awaits For Positive Trigger, Expect A Bumpy Ride Ahead

weekly share market news and updates

Our Analysis

The week was just like a pendulum swing for the market. The benchmark indices were seen trading the narrow zone during the week. Post a big fall on last weekly expiry day the next three-day movement formed a Doji pattern for Nifty, indicating the indecisive sentiments of the market. The phenomena was further proved by bears on Wednesday which took Indian share market to the negative territory.

With the lack of buying trigger, the market was expected to trade in similar patterns in the negative zone, however positive IIP capped the losses resulting in a see-saw session on the charts. IIP grew to a 6-month high of 3.4 percent in April. This was largely on account of the improvement in mining and power generation. Though retail inflation has spiked to 3.05 percent but was in line with the RBIs comfort levels which nullified its impacts.

Budget 2019, a big day for the Indian investors is on the line. Newly appointed finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman is about to present her maiden budget on July 5, 2019 which would follow the Interim budget presented earlier by NDA government in Feb 2019. Capital allocation talks have started taking shape in the wake of this along with which each class of the society eying on the tax rebates, both personal and corporate tax. Whereas sectors like agriculture, NBFCs, power, metal, startups, fitness and others are also looking for some good initiatives and support from Government of India. Stressed assets, recapitalization and digital transformation for the banking sector are also on the radar. Moreover, boost to make in India campaign, job creation, EV infrastructure subsidy, add-on capital allocation towards MGNREGS are among the key points to watch from the upcoming budget.

We expect increased fiscal spending on account of the farmer income support scheme. Moreover, announcements interrelated to real estate and infra sectors would be appreciated.

Going ahead, After a stiff correction in crude prices, the OMCS, paints and the crude related sector are looking attractive. A good monsoon is also expected to create an enthusiasm in fertilizer and agrochemical stock. Considering, technical aspects in the near term expect bears to control the D-street. However, the 20 DMA is acting as strong support for Nifty which have been placed at 11830 levels. Nifty is most likely to form a descending triangle pattern, so any move below 11,830-40 could lead to a sharper fall and at the same time, any break out above 11,960 could lead the similar sharp move in the upside.
