Even though NIFTY closed higher, the day-candle is not at all promising. There was immense selling pressure and that led to a red candle with a long upper shadow. Our markets are not consolidating anywhere for a few days but we get immediate reversals. This is due to volatility and rapid global cues.
S&P VIX is above 30. VIX moving above 30 is a sign of danger to traders. Though it is in US, it will have an impact on the option sellers who hold overnight positions.
World Bank revised India’s GDP growth from 7.5% to 6.5%. This is not at all a good news for our markets.
We have a major event today; the US Jobs data. This will have a huge impact on the FED interest rate decision on 3rd November.
Crude oil inched higher with OPEC deciding to cut oil production. Keep an eye on the 100 USD mark.
Watch TCS today as the results will be out on Monday.
I will be watching 17,200 on the downside and 17,430 on the upside.
