Will Indian real estate bounce back in 2020?

In 2019, housing afforability showed a marked improvement. We also saw a plethora of launches in the market. In 2020, Knight Frank expects the GDP growth to touch 6-6.5% by next year. It also expects the real estate sector to maintain its momentum.

Among the Indian cities which have seen de-growth in home prices, Kolkata was ranked at the 130th spot with a decline of 2%, Mumbai at the 135th rank with a de-growth of 3% and Chennai at the 136th rank with a fall of 3%. Pune was the lowest-ranked Indian city standing at the 138th spot, registering a 3.5% decline in home prices.

Hungary's Budapest led the index with the highest annual growth rate of 24%, followed by Xi'an in China and Wuhan in China at 15.9% and 14.9%, respectively.Despite the weakness in the economy, real estate remained stable in 2019 and could revive in the new year, says a report by Knight Frank. Housing prices either fell or remained flat. Among the launches which were many, 61% were in the affordable housing segment.

    Intraday traders can look to go long if Nifty sustains above the 12,300 level for more than 30 minutes on Friday and look for a target of 12,390. Contrary to this, a strong close below 12,168 level may lead to weakness in Nifty

      Nifty is now a stone’s throw away from its all-time high of 12,293. Structurally, it has climbed towards the upper end of the consolidation range i.e. 12,300. Once the 12,300 level taken out, it will march towards 12,350 and subsequently to 12,400, which is near the rising trendline and daily upper Bollinger Band. The 12,220-12,200 zone will act as immediate support

    Among two-wheelers, we prefer Hero MotoCorp as it is a proxy to the economy and rural growth, and an expected good Rabi crop output will drive sales in rural India (55% of volumes). We also like Bajaj Auto, which is now finding good traction in exports markets. On the PVs, we still like Maruti as it is a market leader in PV segment and has a wide array of models in all the segments. Its strength in the rural markets is also its positive. We also like M&M, as robust Rabi crop output and increased MSPs will trigger UVs as well as FES growth. Within the CV space we like Ashok Leyland which is away from any global headwinds. Any news on scrappage policy may lead to a sudden spur in CV stocks

      Nifty has been consolidating between 12,118 and 12,293 levels since last 11 sessions and now a decisive range breakout with followup action can drive the fresh leg of rally. The index has to continue to hold above 12,250 level to witness an up-move towards the 12,350-12,400 zone, while key support has shifted to 12,150 level
