The US markets and European markets fell yesterday too.
The Asian markets are trading lower.

SGX NIFTY is trading at 17,540. All the factors indicate a gap-down opening.

As we discussed yesterday, the 50-week EMA is at 17,450. The budget low is 17,353.
So, we saw a breakout on the upside when the budget high was broken. That was a fake move and the index reversed. Let us see if the budget low will be broken. If that happens, it can be disastrous.
The weekly chart of NIFTY is disappointing to the bulls as the close is below 17,600. That was a major swing point. The last week of January saw the close at 17,600 and breaking this level points at the continuation of the trend that started in December. The next major level is at 17,085.
Bullard said that there is a need for higher rate hikes and that can help avoid recession. A recent survey by economists said that an interest rate of 6.5% is needed for avoiding recession. But Bullard is of the view that 5.4% will do and the US economy can have a soft landing.
The global cues are negative right now and the Nifty chart looks bearish. Is it going to be a continuation of the previous days?
I will watch 17,310 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,600 can be watched on the upside.
