Looking ahead, India’s retail inflation data is due this week, with a Reuters poll showing that the reading likely held steady in June but well above the Reserve Bank of India’s tolerance limit for a sixth month.
There are many significant data points which will influence equity markets in the short run. The US jobs data showed 372000 job creation in June, indicating a strong economy and an increasing possibility of the Fed successfully engineering a soft landing of the US economy.
“The sharp decline in prices of commodities, particularly of crude, metals, wheat and edible oil augurs well for inflation management in India. This means, RBI can afford to go a bit slow on hiking interest rates in India. This positive trend is likely to keep the domestic equity market resilient. The selling exhaustion from FIIs last week is another positive for markets for the short-term, “says Dr. VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
The market texture reflects a change in investment strategy from sell on rallies in June to buy on dips in July, he said, adding that segments like capital goods, autos and high-quality financials indicate strength.

Stocks to buy today: 9 short-term trading ideas by experts for 3-4 weeks
We had gone into last Monday, with 16200 for the week as the base case scenario followed by a turn lower, and 17000 for the medium term as the optimistic scenario. With Friday’s opening burst meeting rejection trades at the 60d SMA of 16280, the strength of uptrend would be put to test today, and favored view expects a turn lower or a consolidation. A push above 16235early in the day, would encourage up moves to aim for 16340during the day, but sustainability is doubted. Inability to float above 16195 will expose 16150, Friday’s strong support, as well as 16115, the downside marker for the present up move, with15940 seen as catchment area, in the event of major downsides.
