The NSE Nifty 50 (India 50) could be volatile on Wednesday while the overall sentiment continues to remain bullish, analysts told With no definite cues on the domestic front, the National Stock Exchange index would mirror global peers, including currency movements and fluctuating crude oil pricesm, they said.

Adani Ports share price and HDFC ICICI Bank share price could react to news flow from those counters, that could influence the National Stock Exchange index.

UltraTech Cement’s counter will be in focus ahead of the company’s annual shareholder meeting on Wednesday.

Deepak Jasani, head of retail research at HDFC Securities thought sentiments have improved across the board post encouraging macro news locally. ”The next resistance for Nifty could be 17,921, while 17,719 could be the support in the near term,” he said.

On Wednesday, the US Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will release the minutes of its meeting. The data would be important as it would be an update on the country’s attempt to contain inflation.

Earnings season nears close

“With the earnings season nearing its end, most companies witnessed a strong revenue growth with continued pressure on the margins due to commodity inflation. For the first quarter of FY23, revenue of NSE 500 companies rose by 39% YoY, while EBITDA and PAT grew by 19% and 23%, respectively.

Nifty gained 16% since its June low but we expect markets to remain volatile in the near-term.

However, strong economic rebound, normalised commodity prices, inflation within targeted range and better visibility is expected by the second half of FY23, which would transform Nifty valuation to close to its historical average,” Mitul Shah, head of research at Reliance Securities said.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
