IT is continuing the recovery. There is positivity in the global markets also. Let us see if IT and BNF can take the markets higher. Since Sgx Nifty indicates a good gap-up, 18K can be skipped at the open itself, as usual. NIFTY will have to protect this level if this is the case.
It is better that non directional traders do not hold overnight positions today as there is US CPI. This will determine the interest rate decision, which is expected to be a 75 basis points as of now.
I will be watching 17,900 on the downside and 18,050 on the upside.
