Even after the cool-off following JP Morgan taking up bank assets, the fears of banking crisis have extended and the US markets fell yesterday. There is uncertainty ahead of the Fed interest rate decision.
Note that the VIX spiked up by nearly 10% and as a result, option sellers got better premiums yesterday. It was a surprise as VIX went higher at the opening when it was a gap-up opening.
Crude oil prices fell by 5% yesterday. Let us see the impact of tonight’s Fed decision on prices. Anyway, lower crude oil prices can support our market.
Fed interest rate decision will be out tonight. Will there be a pause or hike is the question. The probability is for another hike and it could be the last hike in the cycle. There have been nine hikes recently. Note that there is fear of recession as well.
FIIs are continuing to be net-buyers and the figure also is sizeable.
Stay cautious on the overnight positions taking event into account.
I will watch 18,035 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,180 can be watched on the upside.
