“Nifty was trending around 18,200 to 17,800 levels for the entire January series. On the monthly closing day, Nifty slipped in a dreadful session and broke below the psychological 18,000 mark to close the series at 17,892. Rohan Patil, Technical Analyst, Samco Securities, said 17,800 level, which is 50% retracement support of the recent upward move, still holds and is acting as an anchor point for the index.

“In January expiry the benchmark index made a few attempts to surpass 17,800 – 17,780 levels but did not succeed as prices continued to find support near that area. On the weekly chart, Nifty has remained in a broad high-low range of 18,200 -17,800 for the last 5 weeks. Furthermore, the price is also stuck between the 9 and 21 EMA bands, suggesting a break on either side, which will decide further direction in the index.”

Meanwhile, Indian currency closed stronger after 2 weak sessions today 81.48 against the US dollar.

Indian rupee strengthened on last two days’ underperformance on green bond issuance and Adani’s FPO’s anchor book being oversubscribed. However, risk-averse sentiments and a stronger dollar have put a cap on rupee gains,” said Dilip Parmar, Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

“In the near term, spot USD/INR is expected to trade around 81.50 as most of the dollar demand gets met towards the end of the month. Short-term traders should watch for a short covering bounce at 81.80, while breaking 81.20 should push the pair towards 80.90,” said Parmar.
