9:12 a.m.: expert take
VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services
“The Fed minutes suggest continuation of the hawkish stance and this may slightly affect sentiments in the parent market, the US. But this is unlikely to affect bullish sentiments in India as the return of FIIs has completely altered the mood of the market and the bulls are Dips are likely to be bought in the short term.
From a fundamental perspective, there are no triggers to take the market much higher from current levels as there is no valuation comfort. Nifty is now trading at around 21 times FY23 earnings. The market seems to be betting on continuation of good GDP and profit growth this year and next. If the growth momentum is sustained, capital goods and autos will attract more purchases.”
8:45 a.m.: expert take
Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities “Technically, the market is consistently forming a higher and lower series formation, which indicates a continuation of an uptrend in the near future. Nifty has also formed a bullish candle on the daily charts.This also supports the bullish trend, but a quick intraday correction is not ruled out if the index trades below 17,850, below which it could touch levels between 17,700-17,680 . On the other hand, above 17,850 the first bullish target of the index would be 18,000 and, in a further increase, it could go up to 18,175″.
