It was a fantastic rally we had on Tuesday. It is rare that we have such crazy up-trending days with no previous swing point broken. This is because there was short covering and every dip was being bought by the bears who got trapped. You will be curious to know what has changed over the last two nights as yesterday was a holiday on account of Ganesh Chaturthi.
The US markets struggled on Tuesday and Wednesday. Loretta Mester, a Fed official said that it will take much more time for inflation to get back to the range. This added to the negative sentiments. NVIDIA said that the US government has asked them to stop chip sale in Russia and Chiina. The stock fell heavily. This is a big negative cue for the global markets.
It was the monthly close on the 31st and the big players might have wanted Indian markets to stay bullish. I hope you know that monthly closings are important for big institutions.
SGX Nifty had touched 17,850 on Tuesday. It has fallen by 400 points! It is hard for us to get an expiry view considering the large green candles we had on Tuesday and the fall the US markets and SGX Nifty gave.
The IT index, though it could rally, was unable to close above 28,500. But it is alright as long as there is no big sell-offs in the coming days. However, it is crucial for IT to go above the level as soon as possible.
India’s GDP data for April-June quarter is out. The economy has expanded 13.5% YoY. But the expectations were not met as it was estimated above 15%.
It will be hard to see a range for the day considering the fact that yesterday was a holiday and there were significant movements in the global markets along with the crazy rally we had on Tuesday.
I will be watching 17,400 on the downside and 17,540 on the upside.
