“FPI flows have slowed down. In the last two days, FPIs have sold stocks worth Rs 2081 crores indicating buying exhaustion. This is a normal response to the rising dollar index which has moved up to 101.4 from the recent low of 99,”

– V K Vijaykumar, the Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services.

“Even though the Nifty is showing signs of resilience, it is unlikely to race to the 20,000 level in the next few days, given the rising dollar and declining FPI inflows. Brent crude spiking to $82 will be another drag on the market,” he further added. The Director of Progressive Shares said, “On the daily chart, Nifty has formed bearish candles which indicates downside is still open. A corrective move in the markets is likely to drag the Index lower to the max of 19,440-19,500 where it will test its 20 DMA as well as strong support zone.”
