Today’s Moves

Coal India (+3.3%) saw good buying ahead of Q1 results on Wednesday and closed as the Nifty 50 Top Gainer.

M&M (+3.3%) continued the rally after the post-result profit booking on Friday. The company said that the demand for its cars is exceeding the production capacity.

BPCL (-3.2%) and SBIN (-2%) closed as Nifty 50 Top Loser after posting results. Hind Petro (-4.6%) also moved down for the same reason.

Adani Ports (-1%) posted a less than estimated Q1 consolidated net profit at Rs 1070 crore vs an estimate of Rs 1550 crore.

Markets Ahead

Nifty has cleared the strong resistance around 17,480-500. Looking into the current situation, it is possible to break 17,550 resistance also.

The next major hurdle lies in the long-term downtrend line. We can expect strong resistance there, mostly above 17,710. But, we can expect strength in the market if Nifty continues to trade above 17,150.

The weather around Bank Nifty is more clear now— the index took support at 37,700 and closed above 38,200.

We did not see major profit booking in SBI as expected, so keeping the stock on the watchlist.

Tomorrow will be a holiday for our market on account of Muharram. And this brings more importance to how global markets close today and tomorrow.
