Major Asian markets closed mixed. European markets are currently trading in green.
Titan (+2.3%) was NIFTY50’s top gainer. Growth prospects remain strong for Titan after a good Q4 performance.
TVS Motor (+3.9%) hit a new 52-week high following better-than-expected Q4 earnings.
Rail Vikas Nigam (+9%) continued its non-stop rally. The stock is up more than 90% in a month!
HDFC Bank (-5.9%) and HDFC (-5.5%) fell sharply after a report suggested that the merged HDFC entity could see $150-200 million in outflows in MSCI.
Manappuram Finance (-11.49%) crashed after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) froze assets worth Rs 143 crore of the company's MD.
Federal Bank (-8.3%) fell even after it posted a 67% YoY increase in net profit to ₹902.6 crore in Q4 FY23.
Our market has been fighting global negativity for the last few days. Many traders had long positions and a small weakness triggered a sudden selling in the market today. We had an amazing up move for the last many weeks and because of that this down move looks fine. But a closing below 17,700 won’t be good.
If you are looking into weekly candles, it is a little bit scary. Today’s move has killed its beauty and has brought a fear of profit booking.
Let's watch 18,000 in Nifty and 42,000 in Bank Nifty.
Apologies for the delay! Catch you next week!
