The weekly candle has shadows on either side. Anyway, it is bearish and the market has broken the long-term support of 17,094, the swing low formed in September.
Stay updated on news regarding the Banking crisis. The current status is that the US government has assured safety to all investors. Credit Default Swaps saw a jump in the last few days. The US probe against UBS and Credit Suisse to find out if there was any help provided to Russia to evade financial sanctions has to be followed closely.
The sell-off we saw towards the end of the previous week does not look good. The close is at the low. The pace was too high looking at the way the bulls tried to take the market up from Monday and bears covering the swing points without proper support taken anywhere.
STT will be hiked by 25% from 0.05% to 0.062%. There was confusion when there was an error in the news that circulated first and it has been clarified now. This will be a hit for the scalpers with bigger capital.
We are expecting a gap-up today seeing Sgx Nifty and the up-move in Wall Street on Friday. Will that gap-up be sold into is the question. To see proper short covering this week, 17,207 has to be crossed. Crossing 16,830 will be a big hit to the bulls. 16,900 is supposed to give a bounce in the daily time-frame.
I will watch 16,900 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,090 can be watched on the upside.
