Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services said, "There are indications of market stabilising and consolidating around current levels. In the mother market, US, there is a strong view that the fears of recession are overdone. The S&P 500 bouncing back from the 19% correction from the peak is, perhaps, a message from the market that the steep correction is over. For the Indian economy, elevated crude prices will continue to be a major headwind and sustained FPI selling, which can be expected to continue, will be a major hurdle for the market to rally. Market trend continues to be uncertain and, therefore, what investors can do now is to buy high quality stocks for medium to long-term. Financials, particularly leading banks, are good buys for the medium to long-term."

Prashanth Tapse, Vice President (Research), Mehta Equities said, "Markets are likely to open on a positive note on the back of firm global cues. Overnight, the Fed minutes were released where all participants agreed for 50 basis point interest rate hike and laid out plans for aggressive Quantitative Tightening to begin in June. Our call of the day suggests that any intraday bull ride is likely to last only for a brief period and probably, gradually pave the path for the bear to a sleepover. Nifty is likely to witness mostly downward fluctuation owing to growth and inflation bets which continue to dominate investors' sentiment negatively. The line in the sand is at Nifty's support at 15971 mark and below the same, the index could swiftly slide to 15671 mark. Nifty is likely to gain strength only above 16411 mark on a closing basis with 200 - DMA at 17261 mark."
8:35 am: Here's what to expect on Dalal Street today
Osho Krishan, Sr. Analyst - Technical & Derivative Research, Angel One said, "The index is currently placed at the critical support zone of the 16000 mark, and any breach below the same could dampen the sentiments once again. As far as levels are concerned, the 15700-15750 zone is expected to cushion the downside of any near-term breakdown. While on the contrary, 16200-16250 is the immediate resistance for the index, followed by the 16400 level in the near term." READ MORE
