As the Dalal Street is getting ready for first trade session in August 2022, here we list out key things that one should know before stock market’s opening bell today:
Global markets cues
Global stocks rose on Friday, on course for their best month since late 2020 as traders bet a weakening US economy could slow the pace of monetary tightening in the US, while the dollar struggled broadly against its rivals. On Wall Street, key benchmark indices finished July 2022 with largest gains since April 2020. On last session of the month gone by, Dow Jones gained 0.97 per cent, Nasdaq shot up 1.88 per cent, S&P 500 went 1.42 per cent north whereas Small Cap 2000 finished 0.77 per cent higher.
Growth in the euro zone economy accelerated in the second quarter of the year, but the region’s prospects get hit as Russia continues to reduce gas supplies. The 19-member bloc registered a gross domestic product rate of 0.7 per cent in the second quarter, according to Eurostat, Europe’s statistics office, beating expectations of 0.2 per cent growth. It comes after a GDP rate of 0.5 per cent in the first quarter.
SGX Nifty outlook
In early morning deals on Monday, SGX Nifty is quoting 48 points higher from its previous trade session.
Nifty technical outlook
“The line chart of Nifty 50 index on the weekly scale indicates that we are at a very strong resistance zone. With four gap up opening in last ten trading sessions; it would be wiser to take some profits at this stage. A weekly close above 17400 would negate this supply structure and we could see an extend move towards 17800 mark. On the other hand; bears would take the front seat only below 16400 mark. Till then profit booking is expected but we could witness some buying at every dips. In short trading this market might a bit difficult in the month of August 2022,” said Mehul Kothari, AVP — Technical Research at Anand Rathi.
Nifty call put ratio
Mehul Kothari went on to add that PCR (Put Call Ratio) of Nifty is above 1.40 mark, which indicates some exhaustion.
Bank Nifty technical outlook
“Nifty Bank index dominated the benchmarks by rising over 12 per cent during the month. The index is now hovering near 37500 mark which is the potential reversal zone of a bearish harmonic pattern called CYPHER. On the upside; 38000 is also a reversal zone for bearish SHARK pattern. Thus we expect some profit booking from the zone of 37500 – 38500 during the coming month. On the downside; 36800 – 36200 might prove to be an important supports for this week,” Mehul Kothari of Anand Rathi added.
