Yesterday the Nifty closed above 15,700 which blocked the avenue for the markets to be weak in the short term. We have resumed the uptrend and can target 16,000-16,100 as the next level for the index. Keeping 15,400 as a support for the market, a buy on dips approach will be appropriate to adopt in this market.

China cuts second batch of crude oil import quotas for private refiners
China has issued 35.24 million tonne of crude oil import quotas to non-state refiners in the second batch of allowances for 2021, a 35 percent drop from the same slot last year, according to a document seen by Reuters and two sources with knowledge of the matter. The sharp decline comes after a recent crackdown on trading of such quotas as Beijing works to consolidate its bloated refining industry and reduce emissions. Analysts expect the changes in quotas and newly imposed taxes on bitumen feedstock to reduce independent refiners’ crude imports and their fuel output in the second half of the year although state refiners will ramp up crude imports and processing rates to reap higher domestic margins. Independent firms, known as ‘teapot’ refiners, account for about a fifth of crude imports the world’s largest oil importer. More here

Retail to be next growth engine for Reliance Industries: Goldman Sachs
With a potential for a 10x growth in pre-tax profit from the business over the next decade, retail including e-commerce will be the next growth engine for Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), Goldman Sachs said in a report.
