We may see some consolidation in the index after the recent surge however the bias would remain on the positive side till the Nifty upholds 16,250 levels. Most sectors are now contributing to the move on a rotational basis so the focus should be on stock selection. Needless to say, global cues and earnings would continue to trigger volatile swings in between.

TECH VIEW: Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities
Nifty found resistance at the higher levels as it reached the upper band of the rising channel on the daily chart. Over the near term, the index may consolidate till it gives a breakout above 16600. On the lower end, 16350-16400 may remain crucial support. A buy on dips strategy is likely to work as long as the Nifty holds above 16350.

- PAT: Rs 1600 cr vs ET NOW poll of Rs 1470 cr
Indian stocks led a steady climb as a result of encouraging signals from both domestic and international markets. Reduced export duty and windfall taxes improved the mood of oil producers. Strong quarterly results in the US market boosted the rally, while the European market rose as worries over Europe’s energy supply eased. If sustained buying from FIIs prevails, it will provide a cushion to the upward rally in the domestic market.

The move is definitely positive for companies like RIL, ONGC and Oil India as the decline in windfall tax would mean better and more sustainable margins. These companies were clear beneficiaries of high oil prices, but the recent correction in oil prices coupled with one of the highest windfall taxes globally could have dented profitability. We believe the timing of the government to announce it just three weeks after imposing the windfall tax clearly showcases the path ahead if oil prices remain stable. Moreover, this move would also help get back investor confidence in these stocks.

Indian rupee treads water slightly below record low
The Indian rupee treaded water in morning trade on Wednesday as gains in the domestic share market and slight falls in global crude oil prices failed to wipe out concerns around a global dollar shortage. The U.S. dollar retreated on Wednesday as the euro extended its overnight bounce on relief Europe might be able to avoid the worst fears concerning energy shortages, and on the chance the European Central Bank may deliver a more aggressive rate hike. The partially convertible rupee was trading at 79.9450 per dollar little changed from its close of 79.94 on Tuesday when it had hit a record low of 80.0650.
The narrow band of 79.85-80.15 outlined for yesterday, held firm, setting up the environment for a breakout soon. We will continue our vigil along this range, before playing directional moves, with 79.95 continuing to be a crucial pivot.
– Anand James – Chief Market Strategist at Geojit Financial Services
The sharp 8% pullback in Nifty from the June lows of 15183 is all set to continue aided by a flood of good news. First, the US markets have rebounded sharply driven by impressive corporate earnings. Second, FPI selling appears to have bottomed out. FPIs have bought 5 days this month. The dollar index declining to 106.6 from above 108 is likely to persuade FPIs to buy rather than sell. Third, the relief announced by the government for the petroleum sector through reduction in windfall tax and cuts in duties on exports will be a major boost for the sector, particularly for RIL. However, investors have to exercise some caution because selling may reemerge at higher levels. Results from the leading financials are likely to be good and the ongoing rally may continue. After the recent correction IT valuations are attractive. If the US succeeds in avoiding a recession, IT will bounce back smartly.
