What do the charts suggest for Dalal Street?
According to Nagaraj Shetti, technical research analyst at HDFC Securities, the Nifty 50 has formed a small negative candle on its daily chart for two consecutive trading sessions. "This pattern indicates a resumption of minor profit booking in the market from the all time highs," he said.
In the global context, India is now in a situation where it is one of the few areas where there is no macroeconomic imbalance and there is growth coming through, according to Ashwini Agarwal of Demeter advisors. "I am assuming that macroeconomics for India will continue to remain stable and if they do, then valuations is something that investors will choose to ignore," he said during an interaction with CNBC-TV18 on its Editors Roundtable.
Here are key things to know about the market ahead of the December 5 session:
SGX Nifty
On Monday, Singapore Exchange (SGX) Nifty futures — an early indicator of the Nifty index — rose nearly 50 points points or 0.26 percent to 18,873 slightly positive opening ahead on Dalal Street.
Global Markets
Asian markets have opened mixed this morning while oil prices have risen as China relaxed some rules. The Nikkei 225 is down 0.1 percent, as is the Topix, which is down 0.2 percent.
The S&P ASX 200 in Australia is up 0.3 percent while the Kospi of South Korea is trading near the flat line. The MSCI's broadest index os Asia-Pacific shares ex-Japan is also trading 0.2 percent higher.
Oil prices are trading with gains of nearly 2 percent.
The US markets on Wall Street recovered from the lowest point of the session on Friday, looking past a hotter-than-expected labor data to the upcoming meeting of the US Federal Reserve.
The Dow Jones ended 0.1 percent higher after declining as much as 350 points during the session. Even the Nasdaq composite recovered from its day's drop of as much as 1.6 percent to end almost flat and close the week with gains of over 2 percent.
What to expect on Dalal Street
Shetti of HDFC Securities says that the Nifty 50's all-time high of 18,887, which the index scaled on Thursday can be considered a new higher top of the current higher top, higher bottom pattern. "The present weakness is expected to find a higher bottom in the short-term," he said.
The index's smaller and larger timeframe chart indicates that there is a possibility of an upside bounce from the lows in the next 1-2 trading sessions. Shetti sees immediate support for the Nifty 50 between levels of 18,550 and 18,450.
