There was positivity across all the sectors on Friday. It was a huge recovery rally leading to the largest gain in 2023. And the global cues are now supporting the up-move. Let us see if the second half is retained by the bulls. Also, the Services PMI came out at a 12-year high.
The Adani block deal led to positivity in the Indian markets. There was a 15,000 cr block deal. This made the FIIs net buyers last week. However, not taking this deal into account, the figure will be negative. We need the FIIs to take part in the up-move to see a close above 18K.

Windfall taxes have been reduced further from Rs 2.5 to Rs 0.5 on Diesel and removed completely from Aviation Turbine Fuel. Additional tax on Petrol was already removed earlier. However, the tax on crude petroleum was slightly hiked. Hope you remember the day when windfall taxes were introduced and Reliance fell by 7%. It was Rs 13 on Petrol.
I will watch 17,540 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,770 can be watched on the upside.
