The Asian markets are trading mixed. NIKKEI is up.
The U.S. Futures and the European futures are trading higher.
SGX NIFTY is trading at 17,084. All the factors together indicate a small gap-up opening.
NIFTY has supports at 17,000, 16,975, 16,925 and 16,750. We can expect resistances at 17,140, 17,200 and 17,310.

INDIA VIX rose by 6% to 21.9.
Friday had confirmed surrender and Monday saw follow-up. We were expecting a down-move yesterday seeing the way our markets closed owing to global negativity. The rupee falling to an all-time low along with other currencies also added to the negativity.
Look at the US markets. DOW has entered the bear market as it has fallen by 20% from the all-time high. Other American indices had already entered the bear market. Indian markets are just less than 10% down from the all-time high.
ECB President Lagarde said that there would be more hikes coming up. He added that the depreciation of the Euro has increased the inflationary pressure.
Crude oil prices falling to an eight-month low have to do with fear of demand drop due to recession. China is going for a one-week national holiday from 1st October. This also might have contributed. Saudi Aramco Chief said that underinvestment in hydrocarbons when the world is not ready for an alternative has worsened the energy crisis. However, hurricane Ian could lead to supply disruption and this led to the slight up-move in oil yesterday, which has been reversed now.
PCR is below 0.6. But you can see that the largest put OI is at 38,500 which is so close to the spot.
Do you think that NIFTY will move to 15K in the coming weeks? 16,500 will be a very strong support. If the global markets continue bearishness, our markets will follow them.
I will be watching 17,000 on the downside and 17,140 on the upside.
