Looking at the global markets, you cannot see a rather positive scenario. However, there is no negativity to pull the markets down. The data that came out towards the end of the week from the US were not positive for the market.
The global cues you have to keep in mind are US inflation data, US PPI, the statement by Fed officials, India’s inflation data and the US Jobs data. All these came out last week and affected the market sentiments.
The US markets will remain shut tonight on account of George Washington’s birthday. So, we will lack cues for FIN NIFTY expiry tomorrow.
There is uncertainty if you watch the weekly chart. It is a green candle but it looks like a spinning top formed with rejection from the zone of 18,000-18,150 and that does not look good for the bulls.
India’s GDP data will be released tomorrow.
The bulls will have to make sure that there is no hourly candle close below 17,900. Sgx Nifty says there can be a gap-up. The question is can Nifty rally after the positive opening.
I will watch 17,745 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,135 can be watched on the upside.
