We have fewer cues from the global markets today. Most of the markets are flat and the US markets remained shut on account of Martin Luther King Jr. day. However, we can see that the markets were moving up in the last few days. That up-move was not reflected here in our market and the main index has again moved below 18K.
India’s WPI came out better than the estimates at 4.95%, a 22-month low. This is not that important considering CPI had already come out.
Chinese economic data is coming out. GDP growth for 2022 is 3% which is very low. However, it is better than the expectations.
Keep an eye on Reliance. The stock has been moving down and is now at a major support. 2440 once broken can lead to a further fall in the stock.
The IT stocks performed well yesterday. The index is at a resistance. Watch for a breakout if there is support from the general market.
Germany CPI will be out today. Let us watch the movement in DAX.
Hope you remember the discussion of a trendline that could offer resistance to Nifty. The trendline is doing the job now and we will have to wait to see an hourly close for reversal.
I will watch 17,770 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,930 can be watched on the upside.
