The US markets have been moving down in the last days but a good green candle has been formed today. We cannot be sure about follow-ups but note that it is a tweezer bottom formed in DOW, which is a recovery signal.
Looking at our markets, NIFTY kept moving higher even where there was negativity in the global markets yesterday. BNF gave up but there was strength in the general market. We have to see how our markets perform after the gap-up opening as a reaction to yesterday’s global up-move.
Even if we make decisions on seeing the patterns, more important is the interest rate decision on Wednesday and it can either make or break our markets. As we spoke multiple times, a 100 bps hike can be detrimental.
Japan’s inflation came out at 2.8% vs an expected 2.7%. Food inflation is at an eight year high now. As you know, Japan is a deflationary economy.
Let us see if NIFTY can move above 17,820 which is the high of the previous red candle.
I will be watching 17,665 on the downside and 17,825 on the upside.
