Everything was looking good in the first half for the bulls. However, there was intense selling pressure especially in the financial stocks and this led to a weaker close in NIFTY. Anyway, the markets are sustaining above 18K.
India’s manufacturing PMI came out strong at 55.3. The estimated figure was 55.1. This is really good for our market. GST collection also was good. This is the second largest collection after April 2022.
Lagarde said that inflation keeps moving higher in the European nations. Indonesia inflation came down to 5.7%. The expected was 6%.
Fed interest rate decision is the highlight. The rate will be announced tonight and it will have an impact on global markets. It is expected that there will be a hike of 75 basis points.
Crude oil prices have spiked after data showed that the US inventories declined.
Decay will be less today as we have events. Option sellers should take extra care regarding the overnight position. If the US markets give a major reaction, NIFTY’s opening can be wild.
I will be closely watching 18,060 on the downside and 18,300 on the upside.
