The rally did not see pull-backs in the last few days. A healthy rally would have minor retracements so that there are no immediate reversals.
FIIs are continuing their buying streak. DIIs did not sell heavily as well. This is a good trend.
Major events of the week are as follows:
UK Unemployment data
HCL Tech Results
UK and Euro Manufacturing PMI
US Services PMI
Bulls would want IT to join the party. The financial stocks are performing well now. After an event-packed week, the next week will see the continuation of corporate earnings.
Do you expect a pull-back?
I will watch 17,750 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,955 can be watched on the upside.
