The market looks very strong looking at the continuous rally. However, we had a bearish close on Friday. This resulted in the upper shadow in NIFTY’s weekly candle.
We have Services PMI releasing on Monday. US Services PMI also will be released tomorrow.
Expiry day will be volatile as Gujarat election results will be out. The market may move with fluctuation in the seat status.
Also, we can expect volatility in the last hour on Wednesday as positions may get squared.
RBI interest rate decision will be out on Wednesday. It could be a minor hike in the range 25-35 basis points considering lower inflation at 6.8% last month compared to the previous figure of 7.4%.
Bears will have a hard time to reverse the market. However, we may see some profit booking. But the overall structure looks rather bullish and NIFTY can even suffer a setback to 18K and can still take off.
I will be closely watching 18,600 on the downside and 18,900 on the upside.
