Stocks To Watch On 26 July: Tata Motors, L&T, Asian Paints, Others In News

The BSE Sensex fell 29.07 points or 0.04 per cent to settle at 66,355.71. The NSE Nifty gained 8.25 points or 0.04 per cent to end at 19,680.60

Indian benchmark equity indices ended almost flat in a volatile trading session on Tuesday as investors traded cautiously, awaiting cues from the US Federal Reserve’s policy stance. Foreign fund outflows and rising crude oil prices also affected investor sentiment, traders said.  

The BSE Sensex fell 29.07 points or 0.04 per cent to settle at 66,355.71. The NSE Nifty gained 8.25 points or 0.04 per cent to end at 19,680.60.

"The Nifty index is currently experiencing profit booking around the psychological level of 20,000, but there are no significant signs of weakness in the market. The 20-day moving average (20-DMA), which aligns with the 19,500 level, is crucial as it serves as a critical support level. Only if the Nifty falls below this level can we anticipate a potential correction in the market. On the upside, the immediate resistance area lies between 19,800 and 20,000," said Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastika Investmart Ltd.

"The Banknifty index is performing relatively well, with a critical support area between 45,000 and 45,200. A substantial decline is expected only if the Bank Nifty breaches this support level. On the upside, the resistance zone is identified at 46,600 to 47,000," he said.

Gour added, "Market participants should closely monitor the outcome of the upcoming Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting as it will provide a crucial global cue for the market. Additionally, investors should be prepared for earnings reactions on individual counters. Currently, the F&O cues are neutral ahead of July's F&O expiry."
