Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities:
Markets had rallied sharply in the last two sessions and outperformed other Asian peers, but the bears were back in action with investors preferring to book profit. Financial stocks, which triggered a massive rally in the broader markets a day before, emerged as the primary reason behind the fall in key benchmark indices, despite buying interest seen in auto and FMCG stocks. 
On intraday charts, the Nifty has formed a double top kind of formation which indicates further weakness from the current levels. The index has also formed a bearish candle on daily charts which is broadly negative. However, the medium term texture of the market is still on the positive side. 
We are of the view that as long as the index is trading below the level of 18050, the correction could continue up to 17850-17750. A fresh uptrend is possible only after the 18050 range breakout and could move up to 18130-18200.
Jio-bp and TVS Motor Company to collaborate on EV solutions
Mumbai, 5th April 2022: Jio-bp and TVS Motor Company today announced that they have agreed to explore the creation of a robust public EV charging infrastructure for electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers in the country, building on Jio-bp’s growing network in this space. 
Under this proposed partnership, the customers of TVS electric vehicles are expected to get access to the widespread charging network of Jio-bp, which is also open to other vehicles.  

Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services:
Domestic equities moved sideways amid cautious global environment. Global markets were mixed as investors await levy of new batch of sanctions on Russia. Nifty opened flat and witnessed some consolidation after two days of rally. It closed near day’s low with loss of 96 points (-0.5%) at 17,957 levels.
Broader market outperformed and closed with gains of 1%. Among sectors Consumer Durables, FMCG and Auto were top gainers up 1-2% each, followed by Metals, Oil & Gas, PSU Bank, Pharma and IT. While selling was seen in Private Bank, Financial Services, Media and Realty.
Market might consolidate for some time before the key event of RBI’s policy meet due this week which would provide some direction to the market.
Banking stocks are likely to remain in lime light on account of this. Q4 results announcement would also kick start with IT companies which would keep the markets volatile. Investors would close track the corporate commentaries given the current global environment. 

Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking:
Markets took a breather after yesterday’s surge and ended marginally lower. After the flat start, the benchmark hovered in a range and ended around the day’s low. Amid all, sectoral indices traded mixed wherein profit booking in banking & financials dragged the indices lower. However, buying in power, consumer durables, and FMCG packs capped the downside. The broader indices were up in the range of 1.5-1.6% respectively. 
Markets may consolidate after the recent surge and it would be healthy. However, there’ll be no shortage of trading opportunities, thanks to scheduled events like MPC’s monetary policy review meet and the beginning of the earnings season. Participants should focus on the sectors/themes which are playing out well and utilise the pause to accumulate quality stocks on dips.

Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:
Nifty remained sideward during the session. On the higher end, it found resistance around the previous high before ending the session in the red. However, the Nifty has managed to close above 200DEMA indicating a prevailing positive trend. On the higher end, 18150 may continue to remain an immediate resistance, on the lower end, support is visible at 17800.

Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas:
With the recent rally, the Nifty had reached its daily upper Bollinger band as well as a falling trendline drawn from the October high. These parameters maintained pressure for the second consecutive day. As a result, the index formed a distribution triangle on the hourly chart below these hurdles & moved lower towards the end of the session. 
On the daily chart, the Nifty has formed an Inside bar pattern below these barriers. This shows loss of momentum on the upside. Thus the index looks set for a minor degree dip before moving higher. 
On the downside, the Nifty can fill up the recent gap area on the daily chart, which is near 17790-17700. On the higher side, 18100-18200 will continue to pose as a key resistance zone.

Palak Kothari, Research Associate at Choice Broking:
After a positive opening, the benchmark index traded with a negative bias for the whole day and showed profit booking from higher levels. The Nifty50 index closed at 17930.75 levels with a loss of 0.53% while Bank Nifty settled at 38067.90 levels, down by 1.47% in a day. 
Technically, the Nifty50 faced resistance from 18100 levels and showed downside momentum but it managed to close above its 50-days Simple Moving Averages indicates sustained above the same can show bounce back.
The index has taken the support from the previous horizontal line and closed above the same which indicates buyers are quite active. However, the momentum indicator MACD in trading with positive crossover on daily charts which indicates upside movement can be seen. 
Moreover, the index has managed to close above 21& 50-HMA sustained above the same can show northward direction. The Nifty may find support around 17,800 levels while on the upside 18,150 may act as an immediate hurdle for the index. On the other hand, Bank Nifty has support at 37700 levels while resistance at 38700 levels.

Rupee Close:
Indian rupee ended higher by 22 paise at 75.32 per dollar against Monday’s close of 75.54.
Market Close: Indian benchmark indices broke two day's winning momentum and ended lower in the volatile session on April 5 with Nifty finishing below 18,000 level.
At close, the Sensex was down 435.24 points or 0.72% at 60,176.50, and the Nifty was down 96 points or 0.53% at 17,957.40. About 2280 shares have advanced, 1035 shares declined, and 97 shares are unchanged. 
HDFC Bank, HDFC, Bajaj Finserv, Reliance Industries and Kotak Mahindra Bank were among the top Nifty losers. Adani Ports, NTPC, Tata Motors, Power Grid Corporation and Tata Consumer Products were the top gainers.
On the sectoral front, auto, FMCG and power indices rose 1-3 percent, while bank index was down 1 percent. BSE midcap and smallcap indices added 1 percent each.

Buzzing Stocks:
Tata Power share price rose 8 percent after its wholly-owned subsidiary Tata Power Solar Systems commissions a 160MW AC solar project at Jetstar, Rajasthan.
Zomato share price was down over 2 percent on April 5 after the top two food delivery apps came under wrath from the competition watchdog.
Auto stocks gained, while banking stocks remained under pressure.
Motilal Oswal view on AU Small Finance Bank
AU Small Finance Bank posted a robust growth in advances, led by strong disbursements, due to continuous improvement in its business environment. Deposit growth too remains strong, led by healthy CASA growth, resulting in moderation in the cost of funds. 
On the asset quality front, collection efficiency remains strong (in excess of 100%). This is likely to result in an improvement in asset quality ratios, providing further comfort.
We maintain our buy rating with a target price of Rs 1,550/share (4.5x FY24E BV)
AU Small Finance Bank was quoting at Rs 1,315.35, up Rs 6.80, or 0.52 percent.
