We were expecting a tick mark-like price action as we discussed on Friday’s Pre Market Analysis. The reason is that there was long unwinding on Thursday. The market moved exactly like a tick mark but there was a huge up-move at 3 PM.
Bank Nifty saw immense short covering towards the end. Will there be a continuation to the up-move? 45,000 is going to be the testing zone.
India’s Wholesale Price Inflation came out at -4%, better than expected. As we discussed earlier, negative figures are fine for now.
We do not have major events this week from the global front. However, there are results coming out and more importantly, Reliance demerger.
HDFC Bank will announce their results today. Let us watch the stock closely. It is more important this time as the weightage has increased.
I will watch 19,385 on the downside in NIFTY. 19,600 can be watched on the upside.
