We have major events today. Consumer Price Inflation data will be out today. Manufacturing output data also will be released. UK GDP data is in queue along with industrial production. Now that the US CPI has reduced, the world will be curious to see if German inflation subsided. We will get to know the figure today.
Our markets are relatively strong in the last few weeks. What we needed was a slight push from the global markets and we are getting it now. Let us see if an all-time-high can be made by the end of the year.
I will be closely watching 18,000 on the downside and 18,500 on the upside for the next week.
