That was a surprising day right from the Pre-Market opening to the FII DII data. As mentioned in yesterday’s report, a close above 15,930 was a sign of bullishness. A round of FII selling was expected but a fall of this magnitude was not anticipated at all. But the villain is not FII selling but the cues from Europe.
Euro has fallen to a twenty year low. Even Rupee has fallen to the lowest. European markets fell heavily after opening and all the global markets followed their path.
The day-candle is a rather bearish one and we will have to wait for a close below 15,750 to see a downmove till 15,500.
How the European markets open today will be crucial. They had moved down heavily yesterday but the US markets had given a good fight.
Let us see how IT stocks perform today as it was the IT heavyweights that helped the US markets.
We have the Fed minutes for June to be released today. There was a 75 basis points hike in the meeting and we can expect a mention of another 75 bps hike in July. There are also chances that it could be a 50 bps, though less probable. The challenging situation would be a mention of 100 basis points hike with stress. We have the next Fed meeting on 25th July.
I will be closely watching 15,740 on the downside and 15,890 on the upside.
