INDIA VIX is at 13.3.
The US markets rallied yesterday ahead of inflation data release. DOW JONES has once again closed above 34,000. This will help support our markets.
It is FIN NIFTY expiry and option sellers will be worried if there will be sudden moves like yesterday. OI says 19,200 will be a major support. The highest call OI is at 19,500. The zone of 19,170-19,370 is crucial.
India’s inflation data surprised everyone. The figure came out at 5.9%, way better than the estimates. Also, inflation is now within the tolerance zone as it is below 6%. Net direct tax collection went up by 24%.
However, industrial output declined by 4% and this was not at all expected. This is the worst performance inn the last two years.
US Inflation data will be out tonight. It is expected that the figure will be out around 7.3%. Core CPI also has to be followed along with CPI. We have the Fed interest rate decision tomorrow.
I will be closely watching 18,570 on the upside and 18,410 on the downside in NIFTY.
