Currency Market Update: USD INR faces exhaustion

Currency Market Update: USD INR faces exhaustion
by 5paisa Research Team 22/10/2021

USD INR is currently consolidating in a downward channel. Breaching would lead to further bullishness in this pair. Read on to find out more. 

The October contract of USD INR witnessed an outstanding rally from 74.06 levels which extended to 75.69 levels. However, the pair seems to be exhausting near 75.69 levels and may likely retest its previous support near 74 levels. The exhaustion was well confirmed by the technical indicators like the Bollinger band which seems to be extended. Whereas, momentum indicator Relative Strength Index (RSI) has given a bearish crossover by trading lower than its 20-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA). 

Therefore, if the pair falls below 74.66 levels, then correction is likely to extend towards 74 levels. But a close above 75.69 levels likely indicate a change in trend, that might pull the pair towards 77.42 and higher.

On Friday, Mario Centeno who is a European Central Bank Governing Council member restated that based on all the analysis at its disposal, the monetary authority still considers the current rise in inflation a temporary phenomenon. At an event in Lisbon, he said, "The analysis is done with the information we have today, next month we will certainly have more information."

EUR INR pair is moving northwards making a series of higher highs and higher lows suggesting a sustained uptrend. However, it is facing resistance at 91 and 92 levels. 

Having said that, this pair has sprung back from the lower band of the Bollinger band indicating that the fall was mere a pullback. Moreover, two weeks back RSI had a positive crossover with its 20-week EMA. This suggests that the pullback might be over now. Today, it is hovering near its 20-week EMA of 46.

GBP INR had an excellent up move since July 2019. From April 2021 it has moved into a consolidation. It is presently trading at 103 and has resistance placed at 104 and 105 levels. On the downside, the support is placed at 99.60 and 98.73 levels.

However, the RSI is showing good strength as it has started to move up and is hovering above the 50 mark indicating bullish momentum going forward. Not just that, but it has a positive crossover with its 20-week EMA.

In focus: Rail Vikas Nigam all set to skyrocket?

In focus: Rail Vikas Nigam all set to skyrocket?
by 5paisa Research Team 22/10/2021

After almost consolidating for nine months, Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd. gave a breakout. Is it all set for a jump? Let’s find out.

In the last one year, Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd (RVNL) has surged by about 100% and has outperformed Nifty 50 by close to 50%. If we look at the performance of the stock on a year-to-date (YTD) basis, then the stock has jumped around 50%, whereas benchmark indices have witnessed an upside of 30%.

The stock has been in an uptrend from March 2020 to January 2021 post which it entered into a consolidation. It remained in consolidation for almost nine months before giving breakout this week on weekly charts with increased volumes. This week the stock has rallied over 17%. Moreover, the stock rose to a fresh all-time high today and closed with gains of around 18%.

Looking at momentum indicators such as the Relative Strength Index (RSI), it certainly seems overheated and moved into overbought territory. It is hovering at 80.6 levels, whereas its 20-week Exponential Moving Average (EMA) is at 56.78. On the other hand, Moving Average Convergence and Divergence (MACD) has made a positive crossover in the positive territory.

Rate of Change (ROC) is supporting the breakout as on weekly basis it has ascended from 3.37 to 53.2 showing strength. Also, the Average Directional Index (ADX) that is used to confirm the direction of the trend, is around the level of 40 supporting the strength of the current bullish momentum. Plus, the Bollinger band certainly indicates a possible pullback.

Rail Vikas Nigam Limited is under the ownership of Indian Railways, Ministry of Railways, Government of India. It acts as an umbrella Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to undertake project development, mobilisation of resources, etc.

This stock which has gained over 2750% meets the trend template of Mark Minervini

This stock which has gained over 2750% meets the trend template of Mark Minervini
by 5paisa Research Team 22/10/2021

In the last week of March 2020, the stock of Tanla Platforms Limited has marked the low of Rs 37.10 and thereafter marked the sequence of higher tops and higher bottoms. From the low of Rs 37.10, the stock has gained nearly 2765% in just 82 weeks.

After registering the high of Rs 1030 as of the weekend of March 2021, the stock has slid into the period of consolidation. During this consolidation phase, the volume was mostly below the 50-day average volume, which suggests its routine decline after a robust move. This consolidation of 32-weeks resulted in the formation of ascending triangle pattern on the weekly chart.

In the current week, the stock has given a breakout of 32-weeks ascending triangle pattern along with above 50-weeks average volume. The stock has formed a sizeable bullish candle on breakout week, which adds strength to the breakout. On Friday, the stock has hit the upper circuit.

Currently, the stock is meeting the criteria of Mark Minervini's Trend Template. The current market price of the stock is above the 150-day (30-week) and the 200-day (40-week) moving averages. The 150-day moving average is above the 200-day moving average. Since the last 15 trading sessions, the stock is trading above its 200-day moving average.

The 50-day (10-week) moving average is also above both 150-day and 200-day moving averages. The current stock price is above the 50-day moving average. Also, the current stock price is nearly 290% above its 52-week low and currently, it is trading at an all-time high.

In the last couple of trading sessions, the stock has outperformed the frontline indices. Also, it has relatively outshined the Nifty 500 with a decent margin. The relative strength comparison with Nifty 50 and Nifty 500 is marking the higher high.

Talking about the indicators, the 14-period weekly RSI is currently quoting at 67.89 and it is trading above its 9-week average. The weekly RSI is in a rising trajectory. On the weekly timeframe, ADX is 20.42 and suggests that the trend is yet to be developed. Directional indicators continue in the ‘buy’ mode as +DI continues above –DI. The weekly and daily MACD stays bullish as it is trading above its short and long-term moving averages. The daily MACD histogram is suggesting a pickup in upside momentum.

This technical evidence indicates a strong upside in the coming weeks. As per the measure rule of ascending triangle pattern, the first target is placed at Rs 1240, followed by the Rs 1325 level.

by 5paisa Research Team 22/10/2021

Nifty and Sensex continued their downward journey for the fourth consecutive trading session.

The Indian stock market closed in the red for the fourth consecutive trading session, amid volatility, due to selling pressure in heavyweights such as ITC, NTPC and Infosys.

According to market experts, the benchmark indices had a gap-up opening on the back of positive global cues. But replicating the previous session, the markets were unable to maintain their early gains due to the emergence of volatility at higher levels.

Top gainers of the day were HDFC Bank, Bajaj Auto, IndusInd Bank and Kotak Mahindra Bank, while ITC, Maruti Suzuki, Infosys and NTPC were among the top Sensex losers. On stocks that were in focus today, ITC extended its previous day's losses by another 3% to top the losers list on the BSE.

Tata Consumer Products Q2 profit rises 5%, revenue climbs 11%

by 5paisa Research Team 22/10/2021

Tata Consumer Products Ltd reported a 5% rise in consolidated net profit for the second quarter that was in line with quarterly earnings growth of larger rivals Hindustan Unilever and Nestle.

The food and beverage arm of the Tata Group said Friday net profit for the July-September period rose to Rs 286 crore from Rs 273 crore a year earlier. Consolidated EBITDA also grew 5% to Rs 420 crore.

Revenue from operations, net of exits, grew by 11% to Rs 3,033 crore as compared with the corresponding quarter of the previous year, mainly driven by a growth of 14% in India beverages and 23% increase in India foods business.

The company said its international business was flat on a like-to-like basis due to an elevated base last year because of increased home consumption of tea and coffee.

Tata Consumer is the second-largest branded tea company in the world. Its portfolio of products includes tea, coffee, water, salt, pulses, spices, ready-to-cook offerings, breakfast cereals and snacks.

Its food portfolio includes brands such as Tata Salt, Tata Sampann and Tata Soulfull. Its beverage brands include Tata Tea, Tetley, Eight O’Clock Coffee, Tata Coffee and Himalayan Natural Mineral Water.

Earlier this week, bigger rival Hindustan Unilever reported an 8.8% rise in its quarterly net profit while Nestle India posted a 5% increase in its earnings.

Shares of Tata Consumer have fallen 10.5% from the one-year high touched in early September but are still up 73% over the past year. The shares ended 2.4% down on Friday at Rs 795.60 apiece in a weak Mumbai market.

Tata Consumer Products Q2: Other highlights

1) The India packaged beverages business recorded 10% revenue growth to Rs 1,266 crore.

2) The India foods business registered 23% revenue growth to Rs 712 crore.

3) E-commerce recorded 39% growth YoY and contributed around 7% of domestic sales.

4) The India beverages business recorded pre-tax profit of almost Rs 170 crore, up from Rs 145 crore.

5) The India foods business registered a drop in pre-tax profit to Rs 75 crore from Rs 93 crore.

6) Tata Starbucks revenue grew 128% in Q2 on last year’s low base that was impacted by reduced mobility.

7) EBITDA margin narrowed to 13.9% in Q2 from 14.4% but net profit margin widened to 8.6% from 8.4%.

Tata Consumer Products management commentary

The company said profit rose 5% despite a higher growth in revenue because of higher investments behind brands and other expenses as well as lower contribution from joint ventures and associates, led by tea plantation companies.

Sunil D’Souza, Managing Director and CEO of Tata Consumer Products, said the company delivered another quarter of double-digit revenue growth despite a high base last year.

“Our India business performed well. Both our beverages and foods businesses recorded strong revenue growth with both tea and salt seeing market share gains,” he said. The company continues to expand its distribution reach across channels while investing in its brands, he added.

D’Souza also said that the worst of tea inflation seems to be over but the company is now seeing inflationary trends in packaging and freight costs. “We will address these by further strengthening operating efficiencies and driving net revenue management,” he said.
