Benchmark Nifty 50 ended with a gain of 2 per cent last month amid prevailing headwinds, including concerns over rate hikes, foreign capital outflow, sharp gains in the US Treasury yields, dollar and crude oil prices.

Even though the long-term view about the market remains strong because of India's robust macro outlook, the short-term outlook of the market continues to remain hazy. Experts see mixed cues for October.

"There are mixed cues for the October series, which historically has been a good month for markets. The major negative for the near term will continue to be the sustained FII (foreign institutional investors) selling, which touched 26,689 crore in the cash market in September," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

"The dollar index rising above 107 and the US 10-year bond yield at a 16-year high of 4.68 per cent are major headwinds for the market since FIIs are likely to continue selling in response to the rising dollar and US bond yields. But, on the positive side, the bulls will be emboldened to buy on the back of the tailwind of the 5 per cent crash in Brent crude prices. Bullish DIIs and retail investors will lend support to the market. In the near term, these negative and positive factors can be expected to swing the market to and fro," said Vijayakumar.

"The stock has also witnessed a breakout from a descending trendline pattern on the weekly charts with incremental volumes. ADX is trading above 24 level on the weekly charts which is likely to give a strong push to the stock price towards 2,700-2,800 levels," said Bissa.
