Monday: NIFTY moved down but there was a bounce-back from 16,975 post 11 AM. But selling came in during the second half.
Tuesday: There was a gap-up but the previous day’s high was not crossed. NIFTY closed above 17K despite breaking the level multiple times.
Wednesday: A big gap-down below 17K led to buy-on-dip but the day-chart was an inverted V. Bears tightened the grip.

The weekly candle, though red, is promising for a reversal. But it is not yet time to comment as there should be a close at least above 17,300. The day-candle on Friday was a bullish engulfing candle. The global markets should support our markets or else it will be hard to move back to 18K. As you can see, Friday was not a good day for the global markets.
RBI's interest rate decision was the highlight of the previous week. There was a hike of 50 basis points as expected. RBI retained the inflation forecast for the year at 6.7% but revised the GDP growth from 7.2% to 7%.
Looking at the global cues, all the markets are deep in the red. The US markets fell by nearly 3% and the European markets also moved down by around 2%. The Asian markets also have collapsed. NIKKEI has moved down by almost 5%. It will be hard for our markets to survive amid global negativity.
Germany reported inflation at 10%! This dampened the sentiments badly. US GDP contracted for another quarter and this points finger at recession. Bank of England decided to buy long-dated bonds to support the falling market.
WTC Official said that the trade growth forecast has to be decreased seeing the negativity in the global economy. They had revised it in April 2022 and they will have to bring the forecast down again.
