As we discussed in Dalal Street Report yesterday, we can be bullish as long as 17,300 is protected. We do not have major local cues this week. But we have Jackson Hole Symposium this week, from 25th to 27th August. Jerome Powell will have to answer the questions regarding rising inflation and the interest rate hike strategy here. The most influential people would join the event that takes place annually in Wyoming. Let us follow the event closely. There will be volatility this week for the same reason.
You can see that the German markets are moving down in the last days. Germany's Producer Price Index rose 37.2% YoY. The estimate was 32% and the previous data was 32.7%. Energy shortage is the major reason. Looking at MoM data, the expected was 0.6%. And the figure came out at 5.3%! This is the highest since 1949! This is one reason why the global markets were in red on Friday. Let us see where Europe opens today.
The day candle formed on Friday was a bearish engulfing candle, engulfing the previous three candles. This is a very weak sign. The weekly candle also was a red candle, with a long upper shadow. But considering the steep rally we had last week, this should be just a pull-back.
The global markets indicate a weak start for NIFTY. You can see that there is recovery in the global markets from the low. Let us see if the bulls make use of the opportunity to buy the dip or if there will be a continuation for the pull-back.
I will be watching 17,640 on the downside and 17,820 on the upside.
