INDIA VIX is at 18.55.
India’s Conusmer Price Inflation came out at 7.01% in line with the expectations. Hope you remember that May inflation rate was in the same zone. RBI has again failed to keep the inflation rate within 6%. If inflation is not brought below 6% for another 3 months, it will be a straight nine months failure and RBI will have to give explanation to the government and list the measures to be taken to bring it in the range.
US CPI will be more important and will be released tonight. It is better to avoid overnight positions as we do not know if there could be a major move in the US markets.
The industrial production data, IIP for May has come out at 19.6%, a sharp rise from April’s 7%. But do not forget the low-base effect as there was Covid related slowdown in May 2021.
HCL Tech has announced Q1 results in line with the estimates: 2.4% YoY growth and QoQ DECLINE of 8.8%. However, there is negativity set in the IT sector with TCS results coming out way below the estimates. Let us see if the positivity in the Asian markets can push the indices higher.
We have cues from the European markets as well with Germany publishing their inflation data and UK releasing GDP today. The data will be out at 11:30 AM. So, how the European markets open and perform will be crucial. New Zealand has hiked the rate by 50 basis points as expected.
Crude oil prices dropped as the US inventory data showed build-up with fears of recession. OPEC has posted expectation of a lower demand in 2023.
I will be watching 16,060 on the downside and 16,190 on the upside.
