WORLD MARKETS                             
After opening sharply lower, US indices recovered more than half a percent from the session lows to end with cuts of 0.25%-0.5%, digesting weak data out of China and rising oil prices while assessing the possibility of a Federal Reserve rate hike.

AT HOME

TCS disappointed significantly on revenue front but surprised positively on margins and bottomline.

EBIT grew 3.7% to Rs 7617 cr and margins stood at 26%, up 90 bps.
N Chandrasekaran, company CEO and MD said that it has been an ‘unusual Q2’ for TCS as growing uncertainties in the environment is creating caution among customers and resulted in holdbacks in discretionary spending this quarter. “In additional, volatility in markets like India and Latin America also muted revenue growth.
OUTLOOK
Today morning, except a modestly lower Shanghai, other Asian markets are trading with modest gains and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 15 points higher start for our market.
In yesterday’s report we had mentioned that 8690-8650 is the immediate support area for Nifty and a breach of 8650 would open up the possibility of the retest of the 8555 bottom made on 30th September.
The benchmark broke 8650 support in the initial trade itself and plunged all the way to 8541 before closing at 8573, achieving the target mentioned above and vindicating our view.
Now readers would recall that 8540 is the bottom of the long consolidation phase witnessed earlier in August and also coincides with the 20-week moving average and hence is an important support to eye. A decisive breach of 8540 would open up the space for a larger correction and nearest support to eye in that case would be around 8300, the top made in June this year.
On the way up 8700 is the immediate hurdle on teh hourly chart.
Traders should wait for the breach of 8540 for taking a fresh negative view.

Infosys will report its quarterly earnings today and is expected to show a dollar revenue growth of 2.3% at USD 2559 mn. In rupee terms revenue may increase 2.2% to Rs 17150 cr and profit is likely to rise 1.8% to Rs 3500 cr. EBIT margin is seen at 24.4% vs 24.1%. The company is expected to lower its constant currency growth guidance to 8.5%-10% from 10.5%-12%. Also will be watched commentary on BFSI growth, attrition and deal win momentum.
