INDIA VIX decreased to 10.66.
HDFC BANK in the last week alone has fallen by 8%, and pulled down NIFTY by a lot. Reliance had also broken a trendline and moved down a bit.
Interestingly, NIFTY has by now given up more than 50% gains from the recent rally of September.
Friday indicated that this week might continue to be bearish. But let’s keep hope that this will turn around.
Markets have fallen by quite a bit in the week of the Fed Interest rate decision. And now would be a good time to stabilise.
Although the general market sentiment is bearish, expecting NIFTY to cool down from the recent fall.
The PCR values are indicating bearishness across the market, and more puts will have to be sold today at opening for our view to work.
HDFC Bank will also have to cooperate with the rest of the market, as it is currently at its lowest since November 2022.
If BANK NIFTY and NIFTY break Friday’s lows after today’s gap-up, then it could once again be a hunting ground for bears. So let’s hope the market stabilises from here!
