Traders Guide: In the first week of 2023, the Indian markets started on a subdued note and lost nearly a percent and a half, tracking feeble global cues. The tone was positive in the beginning but selling pressure in the last three sessions pushed the bulls on the back foot.
The benchmark indices, NSE Nifty50 and BSE Sensex settled closer to the week’s low to close at 17,859.45 and 59900.37 levels. Most of the sectoral indices traded in tandem with the benchmark index wherein banking, financials and IT were among the top losers.
The broader indices traded mixed wherein smallcap showed some resilience and managed to end flat while the midcap lost nearly a percent.
Here is a list of things to watch out for on 09 January 2022
What Should Investors Do?
Markets have resumed the corrective trend after a marginal breather and a decisive break below 17,800 in Nifty and 41,500 in the banking index would further add to the pressure. On the downside, the 17,450 zone would act as crucial support for Nifty.
Meanwhile, volatility would remain high across sectors with the beginning of the earnings season. Keeping in mind the scenario, we recommend preferring a hedged approach and avoid overtrading.

Bulls lost control of Nifty’s psychological 18,000 mark, and index ended lower for third day in a row. The daily momentum indicator is in bearish crossover, suggesting weak price momentum for near term. Further, the daily chart index breached its smaller degree trend line support which was placed at around 18,050 levels and post that significant selling was witnessed.
If we observe broader time frame (weekly chart), the front-line index is trading between the 9 & 21 EMA which is placed at 18,070 & 17,826 levels. From past three weeks, bears are making a strong attempt to drift below 17,800 levels but 21 EMA is acting as an anchor support for the Index.
The volatility may continue over the short term with predominant weakness. On the lower end, support is visible at 17,750 levels while on the upper end, resistance can be seen at 18,250 levels, above which a bullish reversal may happen
