The index respected the 14700 level and closed way above it. We are in an interesting juncture where the Nifty is expected to achieve 15200-15250 and the stop is a close below 14700. We are closer to the stop than the target which makes this a good risk reward trade!

On a day when markets corrected due to weak global cues ahead of CPI expected tomorrow, we witnessed plenty of action in the PSU space. The broader market saw immense action in the AGRI space with several stocks posting handsome gains.

Index opened a day with a strong gap down but managed to hold its bullish stream since the start of the day and closed a day at 14847 with loss of nearly one per cent. The index has a stiff hurdle on the higher side near 14900-15000 zone any daily close above 15k mark can only activate the overall bullish stream otherwise we may again see selling pressure from higher-end, supports are coming near 14775-14700 zone holding above said levels structure will be positive.

It was the volatile session for the day as after a gap down opening, the nifty index showed some recovery in the early session, but after that, the bear again dragged the market downward. Technically, the nifty index traded below the falling trendline as well as the upper band of Bollinger formation on the daily chart, which acts as an immediate resistance for the counter. However, the nifty has given closing above 50 DMA and Ichimoku Cloud formation, which points out bullish strength in the index. At present, the nifty index is holding support at 14700 levels while an upside resistance seems at 15000 levels.

Rising commodity prices, like international steel price, are at a record high which has instilled a fear in the world market of rising inflation. Global markets are retreating in anticipation of future interest rates hikes, in which the technology sector will be heavily impacted as it has benefitted the most during a pandemic. Indian metal stocks witnessed mild profit booking while buying interest is seen in PSE stocks.
