Fed Interest rate decision was the highlight of the week. There was a 75 basis points hike as expected. But the US markets reacted badly to the negative speech by Jerome Powell. The Fed chair said that the housing sector should undergo a correction and more importantly, interest rates have to be hiked in the two meetings coming up this year.
This triggered further fall in the global markets and our markets followed, surrendering finally. Bank of England hiked the interest rate by 50 basis points.
The US markets have fallen again by another 4%. The European markets also closed 3.5% in the red. The Asian markets closed nearly 1.5% lower.
NASDAQ went down by 5%. We have to see how the IT stocks perform. IT has been underperforming for a while.

SGX NIFTY is at 17,215.
INDIA VIX spiked to 20.6.
