NSE Nifty 50 Index (India 50) could display a range-bound trading session on Thursday with a negative outlook, multiple analysts told Federal Reserve chairman’s hint that new interest levels might lead towards a recession is likely to lead to more volatility, they said.

“Markets showing immediate reversal of upside bounce is not a good sign for the bulls to sustain the highs. Now, one may expect Nifty to slide down to the important support area of 15,200 levels in the next few sessions. Immediate resistance is placed at 15,560,” Nagaraj Shetti, technical research analyst at HDFC Securities said.

Hindustan Unilever share price will be in focus on Thursday as the company plans to conduct its annual shareholders meeting.

On Wednesday, US Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell stated that it is not trying to engineer a recession but all efforts are being made to contain inflation, even if doing so risks an economic downturn.

“On Thursday, markets will first react to the Fed chairman's speech. We reiterate our cautious stance on the markets and expect volatility to remain high in the near term. Meanwhile, traders are advised to keep a hedge position, while investors should focus on stock selection”, Ajit Mishra, vice president (research) at Religare Broking said.

“The market is currently in a very fragile mode as any signs of negativeness is prompting traders to exit stocks at will. Technically, the Nifty has also formed a bearish candle which suggests further weakness from the current levels. On intraday charts, the index has formed non directional formation while the texture of the chart is suggesting that a range bound activity is likely to continue in the near future,” Shrikant Chouhan, head of equity research (retail) at Kotak 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.
