Foreign Institutional Investors net-sold shares worth Rs 160 crores. Domestic Institutional Investors also net-bought shares worth 85 crores.
The FII DII data was a bit surprising to me as the FIIs did not become major sellers yesterday. Still, the markets fell. Would it be retailers squaring off their long position? Is the market waiting for the last bull to shake out in order to rally?
If you look at the futures of Bank Nifty, you will be able to see that there is high premium. So, there are chances that long unwinding will happen if there is a fall, propelling the down-move. The premium will make it difficult for a major recovery.
It is FIN NIFTY expiry today. You can see that 18,245 was the level of bounce if you look at the hourly chart for 7th February. The index is exactly there. Let us see if there can be a bounce.
India’s GDP data will be out today. There are other data coming out from the west: US Manufacturing and Services PMI and UK Manufacturing PMI.
NIFTY closing below 17,900 is not a good sign for the bulls. A quick recovery will be appreciated. Or else, another quick dip and a quicker recovery is something we can expect to happen to take the bulls’ side.
I will watch 17,745 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,000 can be watched on the upside.
