Other Asset Classes

1. Treasury Yields:

  • After the payrolls report, Treasury yields and the dollar dropped as investors increased their expectations for a Fed rate cut in September. CME's FedWatch Tool now shows a 66.8% chance of a cut of at least 25 basis points, up from 61.6% previously.

2. Currency:

  • The yield on the US 10-year bonds saw a decline of 6.1 basis points, settling at 4.51%, while concurrently, the dollar index experienced a 0.3% decrease, culminating in a closing figure of 104.95.

India Market Outlook

1. GIFT Nifty Projection:

  • Gift Nifty anticipates a positive start driven by strong global cues. Nifty will likely experience significant fluctuations within the range of 22470-22700.

2. Nifty Short-Term Outlook:

  • On Friday, the Nifty began positively, reaching a fresh all-time high of 22,794 within the first hour of trading. However, significant selling pressure led to a complete reversal, with the index closing sharply lower at 22,475, down 0.76%. Despite this, it managed a 0.25% weekly gain.
  • The daily chart indicates a bearish engulfing candle, suggesting profit-taking at higher levels. To maintain a potential rebound, the index needs to stay above Friday's low of 22,348.
  • Looking ahead, Nifty will likely consolidate between 22,800-22,200, forming a higher base after a rapid 1,000-point rally in just eight sessions.
  • This dip presents an opportunity to gradually invest in quality stocks. Short-term support is expected at 22,200-22,000, marked by the lower channel band, 50-day EMA, and key retracement level.

3. Intraday Levels:

  • Nifty: Intraday resistance is situated at 22640, followed by 22700 levels. Conversely, downside support is located at 22470, followed by 22400.
  • Bank Nifty: Intraday resistance is positioned at 49300, followed by 49480, while downside support is found at 48920, followed by 48730.
  • Fin Nifty: Intraday resistance is positioned at 21940, followed by 22000, while downside support is found at 21790, followed by 21710

Derivative Market Analysis

1. Nifty:

  • The option chain for 9th May Nifty expiry suggests a trading range of 22000-22800. The highest Put OI is at 22000, while the highest Call OI has shifted to 22800. Recent activity shows aggressive call writing between 22500 and 23000, while Put writers have moved their position below 22500.
  • Friday's downturn in NIFTY, accompanied by a decrease in Future COI and overall PCR OI, indicates potential support at 22500. Confirmation of a bullish view relies on breaching Friday's low and observing a decrease in Put OI at 22500.

2. Bank Nifty:

  • The Banknifty option chain points to a range of 47000-49500 for the upcoming expiry. There's still substantial Put OI at 49500, despite it being in the money, indicating strong confidence among put writers and suggesting a bullish sentiment.
  • The 49000 strike holds significant Call and Put OI in today’s session, making it pivotal. If BankNIFTY stays above 49000, a short-covering rally could be triggered, while dropping below it might target 48500.
