Looking at the global cues, the last week was good for the US markets and the European markets, except for DAX which consolidated with a negative bias due to the gas crisis. DOW had moved up by 5% last week. The movements will depend on inflation data in the coming days. We will have to see if these up-moves are temporary.
We have inflation data from Germany, Japan and that of Euro this week and let us watch events related to inflation and recession.
Bank of Japan in the discussion today analysed that exports have come down due to China lockdown and Yen has weakened with rising bond yields. However, they are sticking to the policy. CPI will be released tomorrow.
Crude oil prices have declined to $113. This is a relief for India but this also means that the demand has fallen and is an indicator of recession.
I will be closely watching 15,690 on the downside and 15,930 on the upside.
