Zee Business Stock, Trading Guide: The Indian markets were expected to decline on the first day of the week on Monday as the ripple effect of US markets that slipped up to 4 per cent on Friday on US Fed Chair Jeremy Powell’s statement with respect to rate hikes, Zee Business Managing Editor Anil Singhvi said in his post-market comment.
He added, however, that the decline in the Indian indices was still lower as compared to other global peers and the Nifty50 index took the support of 17150-17200 during today’s session after gap-down opening, while it slowly and gradually made progress to recover the losses.
The BSE Sensex ended at 57,972.62, down by 861.25 points or 1.46 per cent while the 50-share Nifty index settled at 17,312.90, declining 246 points or 1.4 per cent. Similarly, Nifty Bank took important support of 37950 and closed around 38300, down over 700 points today, Singhvi said.
Most of the sectoral indices traded in line with the index and ended lower wherein the IT pack lost maximum, while the FMCG index was the only sector to close in the green.
Tanusree Banerjee, Co-Head of Research, Equitymaster with respect to rise in FMCG stocks said, “Rise in interest costs typically affects cyclical businesses or ones with leveraging. During such times defensive sectors such as FMCG and pharma are in favour.”
“Since the Fed chief signaled further rate hikes…market sentiments towards cyclical businesses have turned negative. So, FMC G companies appear relatively stable,” Banerjee further said
Nifty must reclaim 17,400 to show resilience else it may also inch gradually lower and test the 16,900 zone, Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking said, adding that amid all negativity, a few sectors/stocks are still showing tremendous resilience so the focus should be more on selection to navigate during the corrective phase.
