Foreign Institutional Investors net-sold shares worth Rs 1,100 crores. Domestic Institutional Investors net-bought shares worth 2,600 crores.
INDIA VIX is at 13.7.
Exit polls indicated a big victory for BJP in Gujarat. This is positive for the market. The results will be out on Thursday and we can expect volatility on the expiry day.
India’s Services PMI came out at 56.4. Composite PMI is 56.7. More important data was US Services PMI that hit 56.5% beating all expectations. This led to the fear that Fed may hike rates and the US markets fell. Also, US Jobs data came out well on Friday. This added to the fear of hike despite Powell mentioning smaller hikes.
RBI interest rate decision is tomorrow. We can expect a 25-35 basis points hike which is smaller. Inflation had dropped from 7.4% to 6.8%. Let us see if there is a last hour move today.
It is FINNIFTY expiry and this adds to the last-hour uncertainty. Looking at FINNIFTY OI, 19,100 and 19,500 are the strikes with the largest build-up. The spot is just below 19,300 and we can expect a gap-down opening.
My concern in NIFTY was the attempt to form a head and shoulder pattern. Today’s close will be important. But we do not have anything to worry looking at the weekly chart provided we do not get a deep red candle after Friday’s close.
I will be closely watching 18,600 on the downside and 18,730 on the upside in NIFTY.
