INDIA VIX is at 14.9.
The last-hour selling led to panic among the long players. There was a sudden down-move and the index closed below 18,350. This is happening when VIX is below 15!
Euro CPI came out at 10.6% as expected. UK Finance Minister said that UK is in recession. UK Government decided to hike taxes.
The US unemployment data came out yesterday and it indicated less lay-offs amid job cuts by IT firms. This along with the strong retail sales data may urge FED to hike interest rates confidently in the next meet. Bullard said that there will be a considerable hike.
It could be a repercussion of the fear of hike along with increase in Covid cases in China that crude oil fell yesterday. Though the driving factor is not good for our economy, the fall in oil prices are positive.
18,280 is an important level to watch. NIFTY has to break the previous candle’s high to form a new all-time high. Structure of BNF looks better than that of NIFTY. Once Reliance joins the party, it can be an explosive rally for NIFTY.
However, it will not be possible for out markets to stay bullish if the global cues are negative. As mentioned, UK Finance Minister said that the economy is in recession already. Japan has hit a 41-year high in inflation. Once the weaker cues subside, it will be hard to stop our markets from rallying.
I will be closely watching 18,280 on the downside and 18,440 on the upside.
