Will Nifty end on a good note to end the first week of 2022?

Good Morning, Everyone, Nifty opened with a gap down yesterday owing to weak global cues and continued to fall till it took support at 17700 and went higher to close near 17745.


Yesterday the US markets continued to fall led by the Tech companies as investors moved their funds to safer heavens. But after the fall which was more of a sudden reaction, looks like the worst is over and we might see some power coming into the bulls today.


17700 will continue to act as good support to Nifty and 17800-17900 will act as immediate resistance. We can see some stock-specific movement as the result season starts.

Global Markets:

More declines in tech stocks pulled indices lower on Wall Street on Thursday. S&P fell 0.1 percent. The Dow Jones fell over 0.5 percent, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq declined 0.1 percent.


The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits rose last week but remained at historically low levels, suggesting that the job market remains strong. US jobless claims rose by 7,000 last week to 207,000. The four-week average of claims, which smooths out week-to-week gyrations, rose by nearly 4,800 to just below 205,000.

Despite the increases, the numbers show that weekly claims are below the 220,000 typical before the pandemic struck the US economy in March 2020.


Asian shares were trading higher this morning despite losses on Wall Street. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan is up over half a percent. Shares in Japan rose by 0.5 percent. Chinese blue chips surged 0.35 percent. Hong Kong’s HSI inched 0.8 percent higher. South Korea’s Kospi rose 1 percent. Elsewhere in Australia, stocks surged over 1.5 percent.


Indian Market:

Trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a flat opening to Nifty today.


The Omicron variant spread will impact the January-March quarter GDP by 0.40 percent and shave off 0.10 percent from the FY22 growth, as many states resort to restrictions to limit infections, a domestic rating agency said on Thursday. Curbs in various forms such as reducing the capacity of market/market complexes and night/weekend curfews to check human mobility/contact have already started in several states, which are impacting economic activities, India Ratings and Research said in a note.


India is aiming for a fiscal deficit of 6.3 percent to 6.5 percent of gross domestic product for the next financial year, a less ambitious target than previously planned as COVID-19 infections threaten the economic recovery, three government officials said.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is due to unveil the 2022/2023 federal budget on February 1 and officials said the thinking was that sharp cuts in government expenditure could hurt growth prospects.


The plan now is to target a 30-50 basis point cut in the fiscal deficit for the next financial year, the officials involved in the discussions said. They declined to be named as they were not authorized to speak to the media.
