A morning walk down Dalal Street | Use weakness to create short positions with stop loss above 12,040


Bulls remained in control of D-Street from the word go and helped Nifty to climb 11900, and 11950 levels. It had a touch-and-go-moment with 12000. The S&P BSE Sensex rallied by over 160 points.

The final tally on D-Street – the S&P BSE Sensex rose 165 points to 39,950 while the Nifty50 closed 42 points higher at 11,965.

Positive momentum triggered by banking stocks and stable global cues helped the sentiment. The S&P BSE Sensex which reclaimed 40,000 for a brief period also witnessed selling pressure at higher levels.

Selling at higher levels suggests upside remains capped for Nifty in the short term. Traders are advised to remain neutral on the long side and use weakness in Nifty to create short positions with a stop loss above 12,040 on a closing basis, suggest experts.

Big News:

Macro data will be in focus and is all the more important post RBI policy review

On Wednesday, June 12 we have CPI (YoY) data for the month of May and WPI Inflation (YoY) for May would be on Friday, June 14, 2019.

India’s retail inflation likely accelerated to a seven-month high in May on rising food prices, but it is expected to remain well below the Reserve Bank of India’s target, giving it room to ease policy further, a Reuters poll found.

The RBI changed its stance to “accommodative” from “neutral” last week and cut interest rates for the third time in a row, bringing the borrowing rate to a nine-year low of 5.75%.

According to a June 4-7 Reuters poll of over 40 economists, the retail inflation rate rose to 3.01 percent in May from a year earlier, up from 2.92 percent in April. Forecasts ranged between 2.83-3.50%.

“If the consensus forecast is met, consumer prices will rise at their fastest pace since October, but would still be lower than the central bank’s medium-term target for a 4.0% increase for a tenth consecutive month,” said the report.

Technical View:

Nifty forms a Doji pattern for the 3rd consecutive day in a row

The index breached its 5-days exponential moving average on the downside at 11,935 but bounced back after touching an intraday low near 11,900.

The index moves in a narrow range of 11,770-12,000. A breakout above 12K or a break down below 20-day EMA placed around 11,810 could change the trend.

India VIX fell 3.52 percent to 14.44.
