The Nifty moved in a 150 point range and ended trade on a flat note last week, weighed down by mixed global cues. It finally settled at 10,821.85, closer to the week’s high.
However, only a handful of index majors helped the Nifty sustain at higher levels, while the decline continued on the broader front. A strong surge was seen in select banking, pharmaceutical and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) majors on Friday, which helped it recoup losses and close flat.
With no major event locally, global cues would continue to dictate the market trend. The prevailing consolidation in the Nifty would end next week, but its impact will be higher if the broader market also joins in.
Volatility will keep traders on their toes as derivatives expiry is scheduled on Thursday, June 28. Traders should continue with the positive yet cautious approach and prefer index majors over others. Banking, mainly private, and financial counters are likely to outdo others, along with select stocks from the pharma and FMCG space.
We expect the Nifty to hold 10,550 in case of any decline, while a decisive breakout above 10,850 would trigger a fresh upmove.
