That was a clean up-move for the markets yesterday. However, make sure that you do not fall into the trap as we discussed earlier. We need the gap-filling to begin for confirmation. Trigger is at 15,900 and 33,800 in NIFTY and BNF respectively.
You can notice a clear W pattern formed in the hourly chart in BNF. The next resistance to watch for the breakout is the same 33,800. There was selling pressure in BNF towards the close but the IT sector moved higher throughout the day.
It is worth noting that Yen has hit a 24 year-low against Dollar with the US bond yields rising. It can be attributed to the low interest rates in Japan. The Finance Minister said that appropriate actions will be taken soon. Though this may not seem important in the first look, the fact that Japan has the ambience of lowest inflation will drive global attention to the situation.
Though the US markets opening after three days shot up by more than 2%, there is no response from the Asian markets. Let us track the impact of European markets’ opening. Fed Official Thomas Barkin said that the Fed will try to combat inflation by quick rate hikes. Jerome Powell will begin his two-day testimony before the US congress tonight.
I will be closely watching 15,540 on the downside and 15,700 on the upside. Let us watch 32,870 and 33,800 in BNF.
