INDIA VIX spiked to 20.5.
Though DOW closed without damages, NASDAQ has moved down by 1% again. The major levels have been broken in the index and the next level to watch is the psychological 10K. IT stocks will suffer with the downmove at a time when they are expected to lead our rally after underperforming for the last few months.
The selling pressure we had later in the global markets was huge. Same was the case in Indian markets as we saw a last hour fall.
IMF has cut India’s GDP forecast again, revising the value to 6.8%. This is below RBI’s GDP forecast.
There will be a lot of shorts created in the system taking global negativity and sell-on-rise we are seeing in our markets. So, watch the upper levels and once they are crossed, we can see short covering.
The day is event-packed. Let us go through the events one by one:
UK GDP data: UK is in a deep economic crisis. The data will give a hint of the intensity.
India CPI: India’s inflation has been staying above the tolerance zone for a while and came out at 7% for the last two months. We can expect the September inflation to be at around 7.35%. Food inflation may hit a five-month high.
Wipro results: The IT sector is already in focus and we have Wipro announcing results today on top of it.
Industrial output data of both India and UK will be released today.
FOMC meeting minutes for the September meet will be crucial. Overnight holding should be done with precaution considering this event. The minutes will give us clarity on how the rate hikes are planned.
I will be watching 16,890 on the downside and 17,080 on the upside.
