The US markets and the European markets fell heavily.

The red candle we have had in the market yesterday is scary. The bears returned with strength and took the markets down. 18,130 is the next major level to watch.
The global markets saw a bloodbath yesterday. The swing point in Dow Jones has been broken decisively. Look at DAX and you will be able to see a crazy red candle breaking the consolidation zone.
Bank of England hiked the interest rate by 50 bps. The MPC was split into three opinions; 50, 75 and 0 bps hikes.
The reason we can find for our market’s fall is that it was an expiry day after an eventful week. Expiry has got much to do with the long-short positions and adjustment would have happened after the events. However, we saw that the global markets fell heavily due to various negative global cues like fear of interest rate hikes leading to recession.
Euro CPI will be out today. Moreover, Germany Manufacturing PMI also will be out.
Do you think the fall is going to continue next week?
I will be closely watching 18,130 on the downside and 18,500 on the upside in NIFTY in the coming days.
