We have Union Budget announcements tomorrow. So I am not comfortable making technical analysis today. The presentation by Finance Minister will start at 11 AM. We may see consolidation in the morning, but don't expect the same for the whole day.
Also, the U.S. rate decision comes out tomorrow after our market hours.
Today, India's Finance Minister said that going forward our average inflation will be less than 6%.
