The reason for Wednesday’s fall could either be due to uncertainty ahead of Fed minutes or sheer price action. The market started falling on 1st December. We had an up-move that started on 26th December. It could either be a pull-back to the impulsive down-move that started on 1st December or the next round of up-move for the long-term trend.
With the fall we had in the last two days, we can confirm that the trend is bearish now. If Wednesday’s fall was due to uncertainty ahead of the Fed decision, the market should have gained the losses back in the backdrop of positive global cues. The global markets had rallied Wednesday night.
The down-move was led by Financial stocks. Fin Nifty dropped by 1.2%.
Still, 17,800-18,230 can be considered a consolidation zone and we will have to wait to know who the winner is.
The market has lost its strength looking at the day-candles and week-candles. Today’s close will be crucial as it is weekly close as well.
Euro CPI will be released today.
I will watch 17,890 on the downside and 18,125 on the upside in NIFTY for major moves.
