Market commentary: Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

“The index continues to face resistance at higher levels. The current level of importance is 17,700 – we need to trade above this for a positive bias to set in. Until then we will continue to see sideways price action. If we can get past 17,750-17,800 on a closing basis, the Nifty will be on its way to claim 1,8000. 17,500 is rock-solid support and until that does not break, the overall trend of the market is positive.”

Asian markets off to mixed start

Asian stocks were mixed Thursday as investors assessed the impact of skyrocketing energy costs on inflation and the pandemic recovery. Treasuries edged up and the dollar pared an advance.

Australia rose, while Hong Kong fell and China was little changed. U.S. futures climbed. The Nasdaq 100 notched its third straight day of losses after a technology rally petered out.

US indices pare gains

The rally in technology shares fizzled out, weighing on the broader stock market. The S&P 500 pared most of its earlier gains as a drop in tech offset an advance in defensive industries like utilities and consumer staples. The dollar rose to the highest level since November 2020, while Treasuries fluctuated. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell and his counterparts at the European Central Bank, Bank of Japan and Bank of England voiced cautious optimism Wednesday that supply-chain disruptions lifting inflation rates around the world would ultimately prove temporary. Traders remained alert to the potential for market disruption should politicians in Washington fail to raise the debt-ceiling in time to avoid a default on U.S. obligations. The U.S. Treasury is likely to exhaust its ability to borrow as soon as late October, according to the Congressional Budget Office, in the latest warning to lawmakers following their failed efforts to address the debt ceiling this week.
