The US GDP data for the first quarter will be out today at 6 PM. The market participants will see a negative growth as recession. But the world has almost accepted the fact that there is a very high chance for recession. Jerome Powell will speak after the announcement. Let us see how the markets react.
Germany will announce CPI today. This will be overshadowed by the GDP event. Still, we can watch the DAX movement which had slowed down last week due to gas crisis. There was no downmove in the European markets. We will see the impact of the downmove in the US markets on Europe today.
Note that though we opened with a gap-down yesterday, NIFTY moved up after taking proper support above 15,700. This is an indicator of strength. However, the global cues are so weak now that the index will not be able to rally on its own. Afterall, the bear market rallies are temporary and we have not crossed the major level of 15,900 yet.
Do not get confused by the resistance of Chinese markets to the global weakness. They are not as negative as its Asian peers because of relaxation of COVID restrictions which can lift their economy.
I will be closely watching 15,630 on the downside and 15,820 on the upside.
