Sensex Today | Stock Market LIVE Updates: Top 10 gainers from the banking space
We will open today on a positive note, hoping to ride on a morning star candlestick formation, which appears diluted by yesterday’s doji though. We do not however, feel confident enough to climb back on the 22240- 22400 trajectory that we had been following for the last fortnight. This construct may be revisited once we see a day or two above 21800, which is what we were eying yesterday. Else, expect Nifty slip into a sideways bias, or a slow drop to the 20900 vicinity.

Sensex Today | Stock Market LIVE Updates: What to expect from ICICI Bank results today?
We expect the second largest private sector bank to come out with healthy numbers in Q3FY24 aided by solid loan book growth and robust retail franchise. Though there would be some NIM compression continuing in Q3FY24 due to the passing of the increased cost of funds, the absolute profitability would show a double-digit growth on an annual basis. We expect RoA to be in the range of 2.3-2.5% and RoE in the range of 15-18% annualized this quarter. However, the bank’s decision to deal with an unsecured loan book will be a key thing to watch out for this quarter. Though we expect the opex cost to remain at elevated levels due to the bank’s focus on branch expansion, the profitability of the bank seems to be intact. With the uptick seen in rural demand in Q3FY23, we anticipate the bank’s business growth to be in high teens and CASA remaining constant in the range of 40-42%. Furthermore, we do not see any deterioration in the bank’s asset quality due to its strong credit profiling and high dependence on granular asset book. Shreyansh V.Shah, Research Analyst, StoxBox

The recent correction in the market has not changed the underlying uptrend in the market. FII selling is being countered by sustained DII and retail buying. And the strength of the economy is providing fundamental support to the market. Therefore, FII selling is not strong enough to pull down the market hugely, unlike in the past when FIIs used to call the shots. This feature of the market can be utilised by investors to buy quality stocks which come under short term pressure due to FII selling. It is important to buy high quality stocks in performing sectors since many unproven stocks in the broader market are flying high on hopes rather than on fundamentals or strong prospects. Hyper speculative/ trading activity has pushed many mid and small cap stocks to frothy valuations. Correction in these stocks is only a matter of time.

Stock Market LIVE Updates | Tech View: Avdhut Bagkar Technical and Derivatives Analyst, StoxBoX
The Gift Nifty is indicating a muted opening on Saturday ahead of the unscheduled holiday on Monday. The overall bias for the index remains fragile despite scaling over the 21656 yesterday, its 20-exponential moving average (EMA), as major hurdle floats between 21800-218500 levels. On the downside, 21550- 21550 zone keeps bolstering the upward bias, and if the index succeeds to overcome 21850, further upside to 22000 cannot be ruled out.
