Traders Guide: From stocks in news to Nifty outlook – 10 things to know before market opens on Monday, March 13

Traders Guide: The Indian markets resumed the corrective tone after a pause for a week and shed over a percent. The bias was positive in the initial sessions however weak global cues viz. lingering fear of sharp rate hikes by the US Fed and fresh turmoil in the US banking space turned the tone completely in the final sessions.

On Friday, the benchmark indices – Nifty and Sensex – ended closer to the week’s low at 17,412 and 59,135 levels. Most sectoral indices ended lower wherein banking, financials and IT majors faced pressure. Meanwhile, the resilience in the broader indices helped the traders to some extent.

Here is a list of things to watch out for on March 13, 2023

What should investors do on Monday?

With a fresh breakdown in the US markets, we expect the negative tone to continue. In case of any rebound, participants can look for shorting opportunities around the 17,600 zone.

While most of the sectors are trading in line with the benchmark, the performance of banking and financials would continue to play a key role in deciding the next directional move. Meanwhile, stay focused on stock selection and risk management.

Technical Outlook

Technically, the Nifty has moved below its 200-DMA, although the previous swing low of 17255 continues to be a key support level. If Nifty is able to hold this level, a bounce back is likely, with key resistance levels around 17650 and 17800. While if the Nifty drops below the 17255 mark, we can anticipate more declines till 16800.

Even though Banknifty has moved away from its 50-DMA, support levels of 40400, 40000, and 39500 still exist. A key resistance area on the upswing is between 41500 and 42000.

If we examine the derivative data, the put call ratio has dropped to 0.89 and the short exposure of FIIs to index futures has once more increased to 84%, which is reviving the possibility of a short covering rebound. But, for any significant short-covering rise, the market needs a strong bullish catalyst.
