Had it not been for a weakness in banking stocks, Nifty may have ended higher last week. Nifty Bank slipped 2 per cent for the week while heavyweights HDFC Bank and IndusInd Bank slipped over 5 per cent each.
In today’s special podcast with independent market expert Rajiv Nagpal, we try to figure out a strategy for Nifty Bank traders for the coming week.
Welcome to the show Mr Nagpal.
1) As the quarterly numbers are getting reported, market participants appear to be losing interest in bank stocks. What’s so scary about the pressure on their loan books? Wasn’t it known already?
2) Given the market sentiment now, is it a good idea to short Nifty Bank this week?
3) What are your key takeaways from the results of HDFC Bank and Bajaj Finance?
4) Let’s talk about HDFC Bank in particular. The stock doesn’t seem to be moving much. Even SBI has beaten it. What’s wrong?
Thank you Mr Nagpal. That’s all in today’s special podcast. But do keep checking this space for more such interesting content. Good bye!
