  • Mixed macroeconomic data precluded the emergence of a trend in the market today.

On the other hand, India's exports rose 5.72 per cent to $23.88 billion and imports rose 0.46 per cent to $34.25 billion in December 2016 over December 2015.The trade deficit declined by 9.9 per cent on a year-on-year basis to $10.37 billion in December 2016.

  • Nifty50 today saw a lacklustre trading with the index trading in a narrow 50-point range throughout the session. It finally ended up forming a small bull candle on the daily chart. While, the upside looks limited, the index is likely to trade with a positive bias going ahead. The index will face resistance at 8,447, which is its 100-day simple moving average (SMA). Momentum indicator has weakened a bit but MACD is still throwing strong signals.
