Current market texture still non-directional

Mumbai: On Wednesday, the benchmark indices witnessed volatile trading session, after roller-coaster momentum, BSE Sensex down by 27 points. Among sectors, Reality index lost the most shed 2.7 per cent whereas PSU Bank index outperformed, rallied 2 per cent.

Technically, after a gap-down open, the market took the support near 73,550 and bounced back sharply. However, it failed to close above 75,150, which is largely negative. “We are of the view that, the current market texture is still non-directional,” says Shrikant Chouhan, head (equity research), Kotak Securities. For the bulls now, a fresh uptrend rally possible only after dismissal of 75,150. Above which, the market could rally till 75,500-75,800. On the flip side, Wednesday’s low or 73,550 would act as sacrosanct support level for the traders. Below the same, it could trigger a short-term correction till 73,000-72,800.

Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities says, “weak Asian and US market cues coupled with caution ahead of the RBI’s monetary policy announcement on Friday saw domestic equities end flattish with a negative bias.”

Surging crude oil prices and uptick in US bond yields are making investors nervous with FIIs offloading local shares further dampening the sentiment.
