NIFTY traded between 20,850 and 20,950 in a 100-point zone yesterday. If you are avoiding the first few candles, it was tighter consolidation. Was good to see that the put side was defended throughout the day, indicating current strength in the market.
As we discussed last day, if you think the Indian markets are moving up based on just the election news, you will be wrong. The global markets have also been on a roll over the last month.
And currently, the U.S. markets are just 2% away from their all-time highs from Jan 2022. If it breaks out, our market also breaking out above 21,000 will be a piece of cake
Today’s highlight is the RBI Monetary Policy Committee meeting minutes coming out at 10 AM. RBI Governer will be announcing the last interest rate decision before the Union Budget in Feb.
