Here’s how analysts read the market pulse:-
Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities said the previous opening gaps as per weekly chart have been filled subsequently after opening.
“A Death Cross signals a bearish trend ahead. But the Nifty50 also made an indecisive Doji as there was no follow up selling after the opening gap down. While the trend stays negative, a bounce cannot be ruled out,” said Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal Securities.
That said, here’s a look at what some key indicators are suggesting for Tuesday’s action:
Wall Street opened higher Monday while US Treasury yields hit three-year highs as investors eyed corporate earnings and what Russia’s invasion of Ukraine could mean for global growth.
A significant cut to global growth expectations from the World Bank, paired with March weakness in China’s latest economic numbers injected some pessimism into US markets, which opened Monday following a holiday-shortened previous week.
Corporate earnings are also expected to grab investors’ attention this week, with several major firms reporting quarterly numbers. Bank of America kicked off the week by reporting stronger first-quarter profits than expected.
Stocks were up in early trading, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average rising 0.22%, the S&P 500 climbing 0.25% and the Nasdaq Composite up 0.23%. Markets were closed in Australia, Hong Kong and many parts of Europe for the Easter holiday.
