NEW DELHI: Volatility remains high in the market as the uncertainties regarding commodity prices and interest rates linger. Meanwhile, analysts have also pointed out that earnings downgrades are in the offing, making the market participants cautious.

Here’s how analysts read the market pulse:-

“We saw buying interest as the index approached the 17,000 mark. Monday’s low of 17,000 in Nifty50 will be seen as a sacrosanct and till the support is intact one should avoid forming short positions,” said Ruchit Jain of 5paisa.com.

Independent Analyst Manish Shah said the MACD is in a buy mode and the 20-day moving average has ‘curled’ up.

That said, here’s a look at what some of the key indicators are suggesting for Tuesday’s action:

US stocks mixed as markets monitor Ukraine talks

Wall Street stocks were mixed early Monday as markets monitored Russia-Ukraine peace talks, while oil prices retreated on worries over lower energy demand.

The S&P 500 was trading largely flat on Monday as gains in Tesla were offset by declines in bank and energy shares, ahead of the first face-to-face peace talks between Ukraine and Russia in more than two weeks.

The electric-car maker jumped 5.3% after saying that it will seek investor approval to increase its number of shares to enable a stock split.

At 10:24 a.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 109.93 points, or 0.32%, at 34,751.31, the S&P 500 was down 1.47 points, or 0.03%, at 4,541.59, and the Nasdaq Composite was up 29.92 points, or 0.21%, at 14,199.22.

European markets climb on Ukraine developments

European stocks moved higher on Monday as investors continue monitoring developments in the war between Ukraine and Russia. The pan-European STOXX 600 index rose 0.29%.

In early European trading, Britain’s FTSE 100 added 0.7%, Germany’s DAX jumped 2.1% and France’s CAC 40 added 1.8%.

Tech View: Bullish candle

Nifty50 snapped a three-day losing run and closed above the 17,200 mark after testing the lower end of its consolidation range of 17,000-17,450. The index moved above its 50-day and 200-day moving averages as it ended up forming a bullish candle on the daily chart, with a long lower wick, suggesting buying interest at low.

F&O: Strong support at 17,000

“In the options segment, the put writers have decent open interest outstanding in 17,000 strike, which makes this support more prominent. Hence, we witnessed buying interest as the index approached the 17000 mark,” said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research, 5paisa.com.
