The global cues look positive now. Inflation eased and the markets are moving higher. The Chinese markets should inspire our markets to have a fair start. We will lack cues from the US markets tomorrow morning as they will remain shut tonight on account of Martin Luther King Jr. day.
India’s Wholesale Price Inflation is expected to be out today. The estimates say that inflation may further drop from 5.85% to 5.6%. WPI is of less importance. We have already seen that CPI came out favourable.
We can draw a trendline connecting the highs of 13th December, 3rd, 4th and 9th January. Nifty is exactly at the point of resistance offered by this trendline. The bulls need an hourly close above it.
Reliance movement is a concern. The stock price moved down by 2.7% last week and the structure looks weak. At the same time, Metals are doing pretty well.
My eyes will be on HDFC Bank to see how the participants react to the results. Wipro also can be watched.
Let us see if this week turns out decisive and by that I mean close out of the zone of 17,800-18,250.
I will watch 17,770 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,130 can be watched on the upside.
