What to Expect?
NIFTY opened with a gap-up at 18,055 and moved higher for the first few minutes. There was selling pressure and the index moved down with lower highs and lows. The index consolidated in a range post 11 AM. NIFTY closed at 17,877, down by 126 points or 0.35%.
BANK NIFTY also opened with a gap-up at 41,549 and created a new all-time high. The index started falling from there and it went below 41,200. There were multiple attempts at crossing 41,500 but failed. BNF closed at 41,209, down by 196 points or 0.47%.
IT fell by 1.4%.
The US markets and the European markets closed in the red except for FTSE.
The Asian markets also are trading lower. The U.S. Futures and European futures are trading in the red.
SGX NIFTY is trading at 17,765 indicating a gap-down opening.

Though BNF created a new all-time high, BNF could not close in green. There was profit booking and the selling pressure took the index lower. Here comes the gap-down opening.
US factory output data came below expectations. However, it is expansion only, though by 0.1%. US retail sales rebounded unexpectedly. Chinese industrial production and retail sales came out better than expectations.
If you look at day candles, the close looks weak in NIFTY. The gap-down opening will make it hard for NIFTY to close above 17,960. Looking at weekly charts, it is a doji now and we do not want a fall below 17,800.
BNF had a red candle yesterday but it is fine as there was a huge green candle on Wednesday. However, it is a dark cloud cover formed and a follow-up can trigger some sell-off. The weekly chart looks fine so far.
IT is what spoilt the market sentiments. The index is more than 3% down WoW. We will need the support of NASDAQ to see an up-move in IT.
IMF spokesperson said that there is a chance for global economic slowdown in the next quarter as well.
I will be watching 17,665 on the downside and 17,780 on the upside.
