This is going to be a cautious week as the Fed will come up with the interest rate decision tomorrow. The reaction will always be on the following day making it hard for the positional players to hold overnight positions even on Thursday. A 75 basis points hike is on the table and this is what worries the investors!
Dow Jones has fallen by 18% from the high. NASDAQ is 35% down and we are 16% down. Investors can wait to see the impact of inflation or at least the interest rate decision. A 50 basis points hike and a positive commentary will help boost the market sentiments.
Though we had good buying in the beginning, there was huge selling by FIIs from the top. FIIs have become more aggressive and if we get bad news from Fed, we will see fierce selling and a breakdown from this major support zone. However, looking at the pattern, we have an inverted hammer which can be a reversal signal as there is a 20 points long wick. But we need a confirmation which will be given by today’s price movement.
Though CPI was a relief this time for India, WPI has come out at 15.88%, higher than April and according to experts, the data, though not comparable as the series started in 2013, is the worst in at least 30 years.
I will be closely watching 15,690 on the downside and 15,800 on the upside.
