Market Outlook

Post the Budget 2021, our markets have seen a relentless upmove and have formed a record high of over 18600 in the month of October. However, Nifty has gone through a corrective phase since mid-October and the index corrected from the highs of 18600 to 16400. Nifty did pulled back again above 18300 mark, but ahead of the Budget 2022, we have seen a sharp correction towards 17000 again.

In last few weeks, the global markets have been playing a major factor in determining the short term momentum. The U.S. indices too have corrected ahead of the FED event and they are trading around their medium term supports now. So we believe that in the near term, we could see a relief in the global equities sell-off. If we look at the longer term charts of Nifty, then as per Elliott Wave Analysis, are we in a corrective phase wave iv of an uptrend.

Hence, this correction ahead of this major event could be a good opportunity for traders and investors to look for buying opportunities. The ‘200 DEMA’ and the recent swing low support zone is around 16600-16400 and until this is breached, one should trade with a positive bias. On the flipside, 17500-17600 would be immediate short term levels to watch out for, and if markets see a sustained upmove above this then it could surpass the recent sing high within next couple of months.

In the recent corrective phase, the banking space has shown a relative strength and we believe this index has completed its corrective phase around the recent low and have started an impulsive upmove. Hence, this sector could take the leadership now and outperform in the next leg of upmove. Apart from banking, the Auto space too has seen decent buying in last few weeks and thus, one should look for opportunities from this space on declines for decent short term returns.
