Good Morning everyone, last week we could see complete consolidation in the market, and finally, the week ended with a slightly positive note. But seems like the entire consolidation is now helping the bulls get back with full force as trends on SGX nifty suggest a huge gap up opening.
As discussed in our Saturday meetup, US markets continued their rally even on Friday to scale new records, even when the Indian market was consolidating. S&P closed, up for a seventh straight day, after jobs data for June showed robust hiring yet persistent weakness in the labor market that will keep the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates any time soon.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 152.82 points, or 0.44%, to 34,786.35, the S&P 500 gained 32.4 points, or 0.75%, to 4,352.34 and the Nasdaq Composite added 116.95 points, or 0.81%, to 14,639.33.
Shares in Asia-Pacific were mixed in Monday morning trade as oil prices hovered about $76 ahead of another meeting between OPEC and its allies. Investors are also looking ahead to data releases in Australia and China.
In Japan, the Nikkei 225 slipped 0.5% in early trade while the Topix index shed 0.43%. South Korea’s Kospi edged 0.33% higher.
As discussed in our meet, Major IT companies are coming out with their quarterly results soon, First among them being TCS, which will announce their results on 8th July. If TCS posts good results (Which major analysts say, it will) can lead to another rally among other IT stocks & can lead to markets going higher. Infosys will also announce their results on 9th July.
As discussed earlier, trends on SGX nifty suggest a 100points gap-up opening in the market, however as we have always discussed, 15900 still will act as a major resistance to go up. But once it is broken, we can expect a bigger rally in Indian Nifty soon.
Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net sold shares worth Rs 982.8 crore, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net purchased shares worth Rs 930.39 crore in the Indian equity market on July 2. FIIs have been continuously selling in the Indian market buy DIIs are continuing to buy every day at every level. The majority of the funds for the DIIs come from mutual funds, as more and more people are now aware of the huge potential of mutual funds, and this again will lead to big buying and lifting up the Nifty in the coming weeks. This keeps me maintain my bullish view of the market.
