The bulls are trying to make a comeback. Looking at the global markets, the fall in our market looks rather steep. There was supposed to be a correction on the upside and it happened to an extent yesterday. What I’m waiting to see is if there will be a follow-up on the upside.
The day-candle looks strong, engulfing the previous candle. BNF had a stronger candle formed. Let us see if the momentum continues today.
Looking at the period between 1st November and 24th December in the USA, which is the festival season, retail sales saw a growth of 7.6%. Let us wait for the US markets to see the reaction. The market is opening after the long holidays.
Today is crucial as a down-move would mean that what we saw yesterday was a quick pullback in a falling market. At the same time, up-move can be fierce as there might have been a lot of shorts created in the system.
It is Fin Nifty expiry and this can give violent moves to the market.
I will watch 17,980 on the downside and 18,080 on the upside in NIFTY.
