The 3 PM move was quite surprising yesterday. The fall came after a rally. This shows the strength of the bears. Yesterday proved to be rather volatile. Let us see if this volatility persists on this expiry day.
The US markets were boosted by the up-move in the banks but the IT sector pulled the markets down.
Keep an eye on the HDFC twins as they are raising Rs 57,000 crores which is the second largest fundraising in the last two months.
World Bank said that there is a decline in the speed limit, which is the highest long-term growth rate possible without causing inflation worries.
So, there are no positive cues anywhere. There are residuals of the worries caused by the banking crisis.
Sgx Nifty along with the global markets indicate a gap-up opening but look at how Nikkei slid after opening. Our markets also saw sell-on-rise for the last few days. Second half of the expiry day will be crucial.
I will watch 16,900 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,090 can be watched on the upside.
