Germany PPI came out better than expected. HCL Tech results were announced and there was a dip in the profits. However, the results were better than street estimates.
After days of buying and staying neutral, FIIs have net sold shares for more than 1,000 crores yesterday. We need FII inflow to support the market to go above 18K.

It is weekly close today and a bearish engulfing candle is under formation. Bulls would want to see at least 100 points of up-move today.
There are so many hurdles on the upside for long-players. What they need is consolidation here or a minor pull-back rather than a sudden reversal to the downside.
Japan’s inflation slowed down. Let us see if Nikkei can move higher and positively impact the price action of our market.
I will watch 17,570 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,700 can be watched on the upside.
