16,500 has been finally broken today. What next? Rejection at 16,450 is an ideal case of a support level acting as resistance once broken. We will have to see if there is a follow-up on the downside as 16,500 is broken. But look at the global positivity now.
All eyes are on RBI Monetary Policy Committee decision on interest rate hike, to be announced at 10 AM. It is expected that there will be a rate hike not exceeding 50 basis points. Anyway, the market will be extremely volatile as seen on the previous MPC days.
The commentary after the rate announcement is crucial. The current RBI inflation projection for FY23 is 5.7%. We have to see if RBI revises this. Also, the Governor’s view on future rate hikes also is important.
There are positive sentiments now with the US markets closing strong, NIKKEI moving higher as the GDP data came out better with 0.5% contraction against an expected 1% contraction and the Australian markets moving higher despite a higher hike than expected.
If you take a zoom out, you can notice that there is a mid term down-trend in the market and the rally we saw last week was just a short term advance. The index was unable to break the resistance around 16,800-17,000 zone. This keeps the bears alive to go for another round of selling. However, the interest rate decision will be crucial.
I will be watching 16,350 on the downside and 16,500 on the upside.
