INDIA VIX rose to 14.
The global markets are continuing the down-move. Discussing the same I mentioned in yesterday’s Dalal Street article as it is very important to fix the perspective:
Why are we seeing a down-move despite dropping inflation rates? It is because the hawkish stance continues. Though Powell went for just 50 bps hike, after a series of 75 basis point hikes, there are other things to be worried about.
The unemployment rate is dropping and this is increasing wage inflation. The Fed will have to take measures by increasing the rates so that companies cannot borrow loans and expand their businesses by creating more jobs.
Indian Foreign exchange reserves rose again for the fifth consecutive time.
Despite the global markets trading lower, Sgx Nifty is trading slightly higher. What we need is a push from the global markets as our market has inherent strength. However, it will be hard to move up above 18,700 to be safe when the global markets are dragging.
This week will be crucial as a follow-up on the downside will make it even harder for the market to stay positive. However, the bears have a long way to go as breaking 18,130 will not be an end to the game, with 17,900 awaiting to give a bounce.
IT sector has almost given up and we need NASDAQ to stay stable for its recovery. My hope is in BNF which can continue the rally if the major support in the weekly chart can be protected this week. Let 43K not be broken.
I will be closely watching 18,130 on the downside and 18,410 on the upside in NIFTY in the coming days.
