BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 could start in red on Tuesday, after rising for two consecutive sessions. Trends on SGX Nifty were negative, as Nifty futures were trading 24 points or 0.15 per cent down at 15,839.50 on Singaporean Exchange. The equity market would continue to weigh economic recovery and pace of vaccination against the potential risk from Covid third wave. Moreover, first quarter earnings of FY22 which would begin this week with TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) results on 8 July 2021 would also provide the direction to the market, said an analyst. ” Since restrictions this time around was localized and less stringent v/s the lockdown in CY20, we expect the impact in 1QFY22 to be contained. We expect earnings momentum to accelerate in FY22 as the pace of vaccinations picks up and the economy opens up further,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.

Nifty 50 technical view: “The upmove of Monday seems to have confirmed the bullish reversal of Friday and one may expect upmove towards 15900 levels or higher in the next 1-2 sessions. The upside area of 15900-16100 is going to be crucial to sustain for the short term. Any lack of strength to sustain the highs is likely to result in another downward correction from the highs. Immediate support is placed at 15740,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.
