BANK NIFTY opened with a gap-down at 33,105 and the first candle was a huge red one. The index consolidated with bearish bias and closed at 32,845, 346 points or 1.04% lower.
Metals fell by nearly 5%.
The US markets were volatile after opening with a gap-down and closed slightly in the red. The European markets closed 1% lower.
The Asian markets are trading slightly in the green. The U.S. Futures and the European futures are trading nearly 0.3% lower.
SGX NIFTY is trading at 15,440 indicating a flat opening.
NIFTY has supports at 15390, 15,315, 15,265 and 15,200. We can expect resistances at 15,460, 15,575 and 15,630.

Foreign Institutional Investors net sold shares worth Rs 2,900 crores. Domestic Institutional Investors net bought shares worth Rs 1,900 crores.
INDIA VIX is at 21.3.
Note that the VIX did not spike despite the fall we had yesterday. We had controlled moves yesterday and we will have to see if the expiry day will be a grinding day or a trending day like the previous expiry.
The W-pattern in BANK NIFTY has failed miserably and the structure looks good for shorting below 32,500 with a target of 32,000. However, look at the hourly candles and you will be able to see an important level at 15,265 in NIFTY where so many wicks were formed below but none of the closes happened.
UK released the inflation data and the figure is a 40-year high at 9.1%. A number below 9% would have been a relief for the markets.
Jerome Powell in his testimony before the US Congress said that the economy is strong enough to handle interest rate hikes. Though this looks positive in the first look, note that this also means there are going to be consecutive rate hikes. He added later that the rate hikes may lead to a recession. So, the world is giving higher chances for a recession now.
I will be closely watching 15,390 on the downside and 15,575 on the upside.
