The NSE Nifty 50 (India 50) could trade range bound on Friday as weakness across global markets could have an impact on the index, analysts told

The Philippines central bank raising its interest rate, and the overhanging fear of other countries likely to follow suit are seen as major challenges.

Mahindra & Mahindra share price and Tata Motors share price could react to news flow from those counters, that could influence the National Stock Exchange index.

“On Thursday, a reasonable positive candle was formed on the daily chart, that paced beside the long bull candle of previous session. Technically, this pattern indicates a sideways range movement in the market at the highs.

Though, absence of sharp follow through up move post upside breakout of the hurdle is missing, but the overall uptrend remains intact,” Nagaraj Shetti, technical research analyst at HDFC Securities said.

Osho Krishan, senior analyst (Technical & Derivative Research) at Angel One believed the index could see some tentativeness as it approaches near the psychological level of 18000.

“We allude to our previous commentary on not being complacent, as the index has seen a strong vertical movement in the past couple of weeks. However, the undertone is expected to remain upbeat till it sustains above the 17,500-odd zone. On the technical front, 18,000-18,150 is seen as the immediate hurdle for the bulls, while 17,830-17,765 is the immediate support. Looking at the technical setup, the market is likely to trade within the mentioned range until a decisive breakout is not seen on either side in the near period,”

Mahindra & Mahindra

Auto major Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd has convened a shareholders’ meeting on Friday to seek their approvals for the merger of Mahindra Electric Mobility with the company. The meeting was convened as per directions of the National Company Law Tribunal’s Mumbai bench, according to a July 16 regulatory update by the company.

Tata Motors

Tata Motors has won an order for 921 electric buses from Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC). Under the larger tender by Convergence Energy Services Limited (CESL), Tata Motors will supply, operate and maintain 12-metre electric buses for 12 years, as per the contract, according to a media report.

Nifty on Thursday

On Thursday, Nifty ended up 0.07% at 17,956.50, with sectors such as realty, capital goods and power rising, while oil and gas, auto and information technology indices fell the most.

"Recent gains in Indian indices were helped by a combination of factors including encouraging macro data, fall in commodity prices, slowing inflation that may lead to central banks globally softening their monetary policy stance earlier than expected among others. Return of buying by foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) has also helped.

The steepness of the rally from the lows of June 2022 without any major correction on the way has been beyond the expectations of most investors,” Dhiraj Relli, managing director and chief executive officer at HDFC 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.
