Look at the German DAX index. The markets were making a recovery and here started the fall. 13,310 was a major swing point and that has been taken out now. 13,080 is the next level you can watch.
Germany is facing an energy crisis now and natural gas prices have shot up. Winter is coming and the situation will be dire soon.
The US markets were not as weak as DAX considering the steepness of the rally we have had. However, the steeper the rally is, the faster is the correction. The US markets dropped by 2% yesterday and this led to the index breaking 33,250 which was a major swing point.
Looking at the price action of these two markets, we can say that there is even a chance of a reversal as the fall of this magnitude cannot be considered a normal pull-back. Let us see how our market reacts to the corresponding level of 17,330.
Look at how beautifully support was taken in Reliance. The close was purposely made above 2606. The stock had resisted negativity yesterday. Let us see how the stock performs today as Reliance is one stock which can take NIFTY higher against all the negativity hanging around.
Crude oil prices are moving up since yesterday night. The prices are inching towards $100. This is not good for our markets.
I will be watching 17,380 on the downside and 17,500 on the upside.
