It is extreme volatility the global markets are witnessing. The S&P VIX is almost at 30. The US markets had a strong close yesterday and that will push our markets. They have been falling heavily for the last few days. No market can fall without a pause. However, the up-move was quite strong, with DOW closing 2.7% higher.
As we discussed before, NIFTY was showing reversal patterns both in the weekly and daily charts. There was a hammer in the weekly chart and the day-candle on Friday was a bullish engulfing candle. Yesterday’s candle was within the range of the previous day and hence, the bulls had not lost faith. Here comes the gap-up. We will have to see if this gap-up sustains or market loses strength in the coming days with switching global markets.
United Nations has warned the central banks of hiking interest rates rapidly. A UN Agency said that it is wise to halt rate hikes as there is a chance of recession and the poorer countries are being severely affected. They suggested that price caps should be brought on highly profitable energy companies rather than hiking rates to bring stability.
It is FINNIFTY expiry today and you might have noticed that there have been extremely volatile moves on Tuesdays. The index is gaining liquidity and expiry adjustments are common nowadays. So, take extra care, especially towards the close.
The markets will remain closed tomorrow on account of Dussehra. It is better to close positions or stay light by evening as exposure to overnight risks can be dangerous with US VIX at 30.
I will be watching 17,000 on the downside and 17,180 on the upside.
