Inflation is the highlight and the unexpected US CPI data which came out at another 40 year-high has toppled the markets. The figure stood 8.6% which was previously at 8.3% that gave an indication that inflation might have peaked in March.
All eyes are on India CPI which will be released at 5 PM. It is expected around 7.1% against the previous figure of 7.9%. I will closely watch Asian markets movement this week as there is a difference of 10% movement compared to the US markets.
Look at Sgx Nifty! It is going to be a huge gap-down. It is terrifying for those who had overnight positions as well as the investors. Positional trading has become much harder post the Ukraine tensions.
As mentioned in yesterday’s Dalal street report, what we saw earlier was not a bullish rally but a short term advance in a bearish market. To break the mid-term trend, we need NIFTY to close above 16,900 at least.
I will be closely watching 15,700 on the downside if the fall continues.
