Technical View | We have opened below the levels of 11,200 which indicates that the markets are still not fully convinced on the upside. We would need to get past and close above 11,200 for the markets to enter a bullish zone. To be more specific, we should trade higher than yesterday’s closing which was 11,256. On the downside, a close watch needs to be kept for 11,100 – the breaking of this can derail the market direction and we could see some correction, said Manish Hathiramani, Index Trader and Technical Analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.

Opening Bell: Market opens lower, Nifty below 11,200; index heavyweights slip, HCL Technologies top loser

Except realty, media and FMCG, all sectors traded in the red. Meanwhile, broader markets outperformed the benchmarks, traded in the green.
Technical Experts View: Nischal Maheshwari, CEO-institutional equities & advisory of Centrum Broking suggests two stocks for the day. According to him, most FMCG stocks have been doing well, and on any correction, these stocks should be bought.
His other recommendation is HPCL and BPCL. He feels that the stock has come out with very good numbers. “It was interesting to see the gross refining margins (GRMs) doing pretty well for them. We are going to revise our earnings for the stock. We continue to believe that this is a good place to be in. All refining stocks seem to be in a good place as well as valuation-wise. We prefer BPCL over HPCL,” added Maheshwari.
