Looking at the hourly candle, there is a double-top formation in NIFTY.
India’s CPI came out at 6.7% in line with the estimates. WPI came out at 8.4%, much lower than the previous figure.
Since inflation is still above the tolerance zone of 6%, there will be rate hike. However, as inflation has dropped, we can expect moderate hikes.
The US markets saw a sell-off towards the end with Fed officials commenting that there will be rate hikes as long as inflation is brought within proper control. DOW could not cross 33,790, the weekly resistance of August. Anyway, the candle does not look good.
However, you can see that the other global markets are unaffected. Chinese markets are trading in the green and as a result, Sgx NIFTY is still in the green. Let us see if there is profit booking after opening.
It is FINNIFTY expiry today and as you have seen, there can be last-hour volatility. OI looks good now. However, non directional option sellers will find it hard to trade in FINNIFTY as premium is low and spikes are very big
I will be closely watching 18,310 on the downside and 18,390 on the upside.
