The weekly candle is a green candle invalidating the shooting star formed last week. It is a good breakout in the weekly chart. However, we have to see if there is a follow-up candle.

Though crude oil prices saw signs of recovery, the week ended in the red for crude oil. The chart looks rather bearish.

Corporate results will continue this week.  

India’s wholesale inflation will be out on Monday. Consensus is a negative inflation. WPI had come out at a 29-month low last month. India’s CPI had come out at 4.7%, an 18-month low.

Major events of the week:

India WPI

Germany WPI


US Retail sales

US Manufacturing Production

Euro CPI


Jobs data


Powell speech

Bank Nifty is nearing all-time high. This is the highest weekly close for BNF. Do you think all-time high will be taken out this week?

The negative cue we have now is Industrial Production data. It declined to 1.1% against an expected 3.5%.

I will watch 18,100 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,420 can be watched on the upside.
