IPO Section

There are no open IPOs currently in the market.

Domestic Cues

  • Today is a weekly expiry of Index Contract and there will be volatility poised evenly. As the premiums are still heavily built, we are inclined to witness a rangebound session for majority of time. Play safe with your capital in case you are a buyer of options, especially.
  • Nifty has likely supports at 16500 followed by 16150 and 15960 levels with resistance at 16700 and 16750.
  • The momentum in couple of index scrips is strong whereas the mid caps and small caps among else are seeking for relief move.
  • The index is just a benchmark but doesn’t represent the whole population of stocks, ever. It’s only a gauge of the market sentiment for investors but the reach has just been sought differently assuming to compare the top 30 or 50 or the various index scrips and move along with them. That would be a gross error on one’s part and thourough research is necessary.
  • SGX indicates a slight gap up opening for Indian Markets.
  • India likely to withdraw sugar export subsidies from new season.
  • Apollo Hospitals outperfomed from the last 2 sessions and is an interesting scrip.

  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.79%, snapping a five-day winning streak.
  • The S&P 500 lost 0.71% after posting a new record high on Monday, and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.93%.
  • Shares in Asia-Pacific were mixed in morning trade as investors look ahead to the Reserve Bank of New Zealand’s interest rate decision.
