Indian markets today closed flat amid volatility. The market had given a gap down opening. As the trading day progressed, there was a good recovery in the market till noon and finally the market closed almost flat at yesterday’s level.

The market started on a weak note today due to cues from the global market, US PPI data and increase in jobless claims in the US. Along with this, the rising cases of corona and the downgrading of India’s GDP growth by the UN showed an impact in the market in early trade.

Due to the increasing cases of corona in America, with negative trends coming from Wall Street, the Asian market also looked weak.

Chandan Tapadia further said that Nifty has formed a small Bullish candle on Daily scalp and is forming Higher Highs of last 6 trading sessions. It has also formed a bullish candle on the weekly frame and has remained bullish for the last 3 weeks. Now Nifty will have to stay above 18,081 to move towards 18,400 while it will have to move towards 18,181 and 18000 zone for the downside.

Ajit Mishra of Religare Broking says that today the market saw volatility throughout the day and finally it closed flat. The market started on a weak note due to weak global cues. However, it got good recovery in the market.

Next week the market first gave its reaction on the results of HCL Technologies and HDFC Bank in early trading on Monday. We may see more consolidation in the index now. However, its trend will continue to be more positive. Market participants should stick to the strategy of buying on the downside and focus on such sectors which are seen to be in sync with the benchmark index.
