Fed has announced a 75 basis points hike. This was expected but was considered to be negative for the markets with the hope that a 50 basis points hike would move the markets higher. However, the markets moved higher though there was an initial down-move just after the hike was announced. Remember that this need not be the real reaction to the Fed. The actual reaction always comes the following day. Let us watch how the US markets move tonight.
Along with the 75 basis points hike, Fed also increased the inflation projection to 5.2% from 3.7% for 2022. Also, it will take much longer for the inflation rate to be within the normal range. Fed projected slower economic growth contradicting their own justification for the rate hike; which is higher GDP growth in the last quarter. The retail sales in May dropped for the first time this year and all the ingredients are perfect for recession. So, what we can understand from the Fed event yesterday is that the Fed is willing to risk recession for bringing inflation down. We can expect a 50 bps or 75 bps hike in the next meeting as well.
Though we may see an up-move in the morning, beware of FII selling! FIIs have been selling consistently and there has been a large candle towards the end on previous days due to heavy institutional activity.
I was surprised to see the huge put OI build-up at 33,000 which is just near the spot. There could also have been put long there, expecting a fall.
I hope you remember the ATM straddle premium last week. It was 130. It has been between 120 and 150 for some weeks. Guess the sum this week? It is 250! That was the magnitude of uncertainty ahead of the Fed event. We will see an IV crush today.
I will be closely watching 15,690 on the downside and 15,800 on the upside.
