RBI event will be the highlight of the week. We are expecting a repo rate hike of 25 basis points. The current rate is 6.25.
The market looks rather uncertain due to the Adani issue. It is hard to form a view on the market since there is extreme volatility and the move is news-dependent. Still, crossing 18K will be a reversal sign.
I will watch 17,600 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,000 can be watched on the upside.
