Stock Market News: The domestic benchmark indices, the Sensex and Nifty 50 began Monday's session in red due to investor selling of riskier assets on fears of a wider regional conflict caused by Iran's retaliatory assault on Israel over the weekend.

At 9:54 IST, the NSE Nifty 50 was down 0.96% at 22,303.90, while the S&P BSE Sensex was down 0.99% to 73,527.34. 

According to Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services, there are a number of negative factors that might affect markets today, including the Middle East's renewed turmoil, planned modifications to the tax treaty between Mauritius and India, and higher-than-expected US inflation. However, since an Iranian counterattack was anticipated and the market discounted the higher US inflation on Friday, some of these disadvantages are already included into the price.

The banking and information technology (IT) stocks prompted the domestic benchmark indices, the Sensex and Nifty 50, to decline 1% each on Friday in reaction to high US inflation statistics earlier this week that dimmed prospects of an early interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve. With both finishing in red, the Pharma Index and the Healthcare Index exhibited most severe hardship among all the sectoral indices.

The 30-share BSE Sensex closed lower by 793.25 points, or 1.06%, at the 74,244.90 level, while the Nifty 50 ended at the 22,519.40 level, down 234.40 points, or 1.03%.

The outlook for the market in the coming week will be guided by the major global and domestic economic data, India WPI inflation data and WPI manufacturing data, China GDP growth rate, US Manufacturing Production Index, US Initial Jobless Claims and company earnings.

Market Outlook by Dharmesh Shah, Vice President, ICICI Securities

The Nifty 50 surrendered the first three session gains on Friday amid global volatility led by higher US CPI data as participants resorted to profit-taking after a 1,100-point rally over the past three weeks led prices to overbought readings (daily stochastics >85).

Going ahead, we expect 22,800 to act as key resistance for the Nifty 50, being the value of last week's highs and the upper band of the rising channel, and lead to a healthy price retracement of three-week gains, followed by consolidation in 22,200-22,800 amid stock-specific action as the Q4 FY24 earnings season commences.

Structurally, the retracement of the recent rally would lead to a higher base formation above the rising 50-dema and a lower band of the channel around 22,200 levels. We believe short-term consolidation would pave the way for an eventual target of 23400 by June 2024. 

Bank Nifty is expected to consolidate in the broad range of 47,700–49,000 as the index is expected to undergo a healthy retracement of the past three weeks’s 3000-point rally. 

Key monitorable:

Sectorally, IT would remain in focus as earnings outcomes would dictate further direction for sector which is oversold. Any positive surprise from earnings would lead to decent upsides.

Breadth continues to remain as a percentage of stocks above 50-day ema sustained above 70% for the week.

Oil prices will be a key risk factor amid the brewing geopolitical situation. A spike in oil prices above $91 could lead to further profit booking.

Top Stock Recommendations:

Buy Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) in the range of 2,920–2,950 for the target of 3,270 with a stop loss of 2,790.

Buy Delhivery Ltd in the range of 458–468 for the target of 540 with a stop loss of 410.
