Here’s how analysts read the market pulse:
Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research, HDFC Securities, said that the Nifty has risen for seven weeks from the lows of 15,183 (with one negative close in between). “It could now make a top for this move in the 17,784-18,115 band and later correct. On falls, 17,556 and 17,407 are the supports,” he said.
Prashanth Tapse – Research Analyst, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities, said that the technical landscape for Nifty is likely to be positive as long as the benchmark trades above its biggest support at the 17,527 mark with targets at 17,889 mark and then the psychological 18,000 mark.
That said, here’s a look at what some key indicators are suggesting for Tuesday’s action:
US stocks slip as China data sparks fear

The S&P 500 opened lower by 10.78 points, or 0.25%, at 4,269.37, while the Nasdaq Composite dropped 50.56 points, or 0.39%, to 12,996.63 at the opening bell.
With European stocks steadying at 10-week highs, one may be apt to forget that many players expect a recession by year-end.
The pan-European equity benchmark index was last up 0.2%.
There was some relief over results from Hellofresh which confirmed its 2025 targets and said it was cautiously optimistic about H2, sending its shares up 9% to the top of the STOXX.
