12:58 pm: Expert take

Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swatika Investmart

"The Indian equity markets are witnessing high volatility as global cues are weak but our market is not ready to go down where every dip is taken as a buying opportunity. FIIs are in a buying mood despite the rise in the dollar index and US bond yields whereas the rupee has gained remarkably in the last two trading sessions. 17,160 is the previous swing low, 17,000 is 200-DMA, and 16,920 is a 38.2 per cent retracement of the previous rally therefore 17160-16920 is a critical demand zone. On the upside, 17800-18000 is an immediate supply zone; above this, the Nifty will prepare itself for new highs."

11:22 AM: Nomura sees 22% upside in this Adani Group stock, here's why

Shares of Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone were in focus today after financial brokerage firm Nomura gave a buy call to the Adani Group firm with an unchanged target price of Rs 1,025. The target price translates into a 22 per cent upside for the stock of Adani Ports. Adani Ports stock rose 0.46 per cent to Rs 846.30 against the previous close of Rs 842.35 on BSE.  The share has gained 13.22 per cent in a year and gained 15.49 per cent in 2022.

Market cap of Adani Ports stood at Rs 1.78 lakh crore. Total 0.63 lakh shares of the firm changed hands amounting to a turnover of Rs 5.30 crore on BSE. Nomura said the Adani Group firm is into an integrated logistics play and port volumes are trending above guidance.

The company may be requiring Rs 23,000 crore in capex over FY23-25, leading to a capex-intensive phase but concerns on group leverage are overdone,  Nomura said in its latest note on Adani Ports. Nomura said Adani Ports was adequately de-linked from Group companies' operational and stock performance due to improved governance.

8:29: Expert take

Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities

"Due to temporarily overbought conditions, we may see range-bound activity in the near future. For traders 17,550 or the 20-day SMA could be an important level to notice. Above the same, the index could accelerate to the level of 17,800-17,850. On the other hand, an uptrend below 17,500 would be weak. If the Nifty crosses the 18,000 level then, the index could surge to 18,300-18,350."

8:25 am: SGX Nifty

The Indian market is likely to open lower today as SGX Nifty fell 41 points to 17,469. The Singapore Stock Exchange is considered to be the first indication of the opening of the Indian market.
