Note that VIX has gone below 12. The premium will be too low. Option sellers will struggle to get a decent premium and they may have to sell closer to the spot.

Today is an event packed day:
India Industrial production
India CPI will be important as there is a pause in the rate hike. It was said by the RBI Governor earlier that a premature pause will lead to the situation going out of control. We have to see if inflation has come down.
US CPI is again important as there are reports that Fed also is on its way to pausing the rate hike.
Fed Minutes will give us more clarity on the current situation.
TCS was falling yesterday along with the other IT stocks. Let us keep an eye on TCS and the IT sector today as the results will come out.
I will watch 17,650 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,750 can be watched on the upside.
