Trading Idea (Positional):
Technically, Nifty Fut-Jan (NF) has to sustain over 10675 area for further rally towards 10735- 10785 & 10860-10925 zone in the short term (under bullish case scenario).
On the flip side, sustaining below 10655-10615 area, NF may fall towards 10560-10520 & 10480-10430 zone in the short term (under bear case scenario).
Technically, Bank Nifty-Fut (BNF) has to sustain over 25650 area for further rally towards 25875/25950-26050 & 26250-26550 zone in the near term (under bullish case scenario).
On the flip side, sustaining below 25600 area, BNF may fall towards 25400-25250 & 25000-24800 area in the near term (under bear case scenario).
Indian market (Nifty Fut-Feb/India-50) today (15th Feb) closed around 10557, jumped by almost 62 points (+0.59%) on positive global cues, but slipped from the day high of 10630 on concern of series of bank loan frauds starting from PNB and new NPA rules by RBI; it made a session low of 10505.
Apart from PNB, market is concerned that several other PSBS and also some private banks may be involved in such corporate big loan frauds; i.e. trust in the credibility of banks may be shambled now for this PNB fiasco.
Indian bond yields surged over 7.57% again on concern of ballooning banking NPA and trust deficit apart from fiscal woes & higher oil; PSBS dragged the market along with some private banks., while metals, energies/OMC helped.
Basically, Indian market is now being boosted by a lower USD, which is good for the overall Indian economy, being an import oriented country but may be bad for Nifty earnings as almost 60% is dependent on exports income.
A lower WPI (Indian version of PPI) for Jan at 2.84% vs est 3.25%; prior: 3.58% may have also boosted the market sentiment today.
But tepid trade data (export/import) and subsequent surge in trade deficits at -16.30B vs est -12.97B; prior: -14.88B may not be good for the CAD & fiscal deficits.
