The US markets and the European markets closed deep in the red.

It was a surprise when the gap-up was not sustained despite the heavy up-move in DOW we had on Wednesday. However, the global markets were bearish during our market time as futures were moving down justifying the fall.
RBI will come up with the interest rate decision at 10 AM. It is expected that a 50 basis points hike will come into effect in repo rate. The commentary post the announcement will be important and the markets can be volatile.
Germany CPI hit 10% against an expectation of 9.4%. This also dampened the sentiments. US GDP contracted pointing finger at recession.
There is negativity in every market. Inflation not subsiding, higher rate hikes giving fear of recession, war effects and various other factors contributed to the negative sentiments.
Do you think this Friday will replicate the last Friday with every rise sold off? Today will be something different I guess considering interest rate decision leading to extremely volatile moves.
I will be watching 16,640 on the downside and 16,800 on the upside.
