INDIA VIX is at 17.5.
Another bullish candle has been formed in the day-charts. Even BANK NIFTY has invalidated the previous red candle.
It was a very volatile move in the morning and as a result, VIX has spiked up by more than 5% despite the up-move. As we have seen, it was a sharp up-move. There is supposed to be some profit booking.
Look at the Auto sector after positive sales data. There was a very good up-move yesterday. Let us see if there is strength today.
The US manufacturing PMI indicated deceleration in the US economy but it is still in the expansionary zone. If NIFTY consolidates without falling at times of negativity in the global markets, we can expect the market to move even higher. Oil prices are falling on worries of demand but this can be good for our markets in one way.
Nirmala Sitharaman said that there is no question of falling into stagflation or recession as India’s economy is doing well and the general debt is in a good position compared to other countries. Our local cues indicate strength as Manufacturing PMI came out at an 8 month high and the Auto sales data were strong.
I will be watching 17,250 on the downside and 17,350 on the upside.
