Here's a look at what analysts said about the direction the market is likely to take today.
Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research, HDFC Securities
"15,670-15,740 could be a near-term resistance for the Nifty. Once this band is breached, 15,863-15,886 could be the next resistance. Investors may prepare a list of stocks that they would like to offload in this bounce to raise cash. Nervousness in the markets will keep coming up unless we see signs of inflation stabilising and reversing globally which can be an early sign of bottom formation."
Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities
"On daily charts, Nifty has formed a promising bullish candle which supports a further uptrend from the current levels. However, the medium-term trend is still on the weak side. For the traders, the support has shifted to 15500 from 15250 on the Nifty (and from 51,300 to 52000 on BSE). As long as, the Nifty is trading above 15,500 (BSE below 52000) the chances of hitting 15750 (BSE 52900) would turn bright. Further upside may also continue, which could lift the Nifty up to 15850 (BSE to 53200 level)."
Mohit Nigam, Head - PMS, Hem Securities
"On the technical front, immediate support and resistance for Nifty50 is 15,400 and 15,800 levels. In case of Bank Nifty, 32,700 may act as immediate support and 33,700 may act as immediate resistance level."
