INDIA VIX dropped to 17.
The US GDP data for the quarter came out against expectations. It was expected to be at 0.4% growth whereas the actual figure stood at -0.9% contraction. This hints at recession.
Though the global markets were falling yesterday in the noon, our markets kept moving higher. This shows the strength of the market.
Look at how the global markets are trading now and at Sgx Nifty. The concern is that it has been a very good rally but without proper pull-backs. Such rallies see steep profit booking as well. Let us wait to see if NIFTY manages to close above 17,000 for the coming days.
Note that crude oil has moved slightly higher which is not good for Indian markets.
I will be watching 16,950 on the downside and 17,250 on the upside.
