Traders Guide, NSE Nifty50, BSE Sensex: The Indian markets traded volatile for yet another session and ended with gains of over half a percent on Friday. After the muted start, the Nifty and Sensex indices gradually inched higher and settled at 17956.60 and 60,261.18 levels, respectively.
The recovery in banking, IT, auto and metal majors played a crucial role in the rebound while others witnessed a mixed trend. While the broader indices underperformed and closed on a flat note.
Here is a list of things to watch out for on 16 January 2022
What Should Investors Do On Monday?
Markets will react to the HDFC Bank, Wipro and DMart’s result in early trade on Monday. The recent recovery in the global markets has failed to impress the participants so far however the mood might change if they manage to sustain the gains.
To regain some strength, Nifty should decisively cross the 18,100 mark. Meanwhile, participants should restrict positions and prefer a hedged approach.
-Ajit Mishra, VP – Technical Research, Religare Broking Ltd.
Technically, Nifty is respecting a key support level of 17800, but the 20-DMA around 18100 is an immediate and critical hurdle that needs to be crossed for any strength in the market, and the 50-DMA around 18300 will be the next hurdle. However, if Nifty slips below the 17800 level decisively, then we can expect a move towards the 17625 and 17425 levels.
Bank Nifty is respecting its support at 41725, but the cluster of the 20 and 50-DMA around 42700 is a critical hurdle; above this, we can expect a move towards 43400. On the downside, the 100-DMA around 41300 is the next important support level.
