Vinod Nair, head of research, at Geojit Financial Services said: “The main indices are trading in a narrow range, struggling to justify its premium valuation ahead of the Q1 earnings season, which is forecast to be subdued. However, the broader market is exhibiting marginal momentum, led by a shift in FIIs inflow and budget expectations. Attention is now focused on the US inflation data, which is estimated to moderate and positively influence Fed’s interest rate decisions.”

Rupak De, senior technical analyst, LKP Securities said, “The Nifty remained volatile throughout the day before closing flat. In the near term, the Nifty might trade sideways, with 24,150 and 24,400 acting as the key levels. A decisive fall below 24,150 might trigger panic in the market, while a decisive move above 24,400 might induce a rally towards 24,650.”
