Fed interest rate decision came out yesterday. It is a 75 basis points as expected. Hope you remember what the last Fed minutes spoke about. Powell reiterated it, saying hikes are inevitable and this will continue as long as inflation comes back to 2%. At the same time, he hinted that the size could be smaller next time.
Though we had a sell-off yesterday, the intensity was low and also, FII data looks very supportive. They were net buyers yesterday as well. Protecting 18K is very important for the bulls to take the game forward.
We have RBI interest rate decision at 10 AM. The press conference post the decision will be more important. It is expected that the event will not disturb the market situation.
Premium decay was very less yesterday because of events. Though the Fed event is over, we have RBI event and decay will happen in a big way after the event only with IV crush.
The day-candle of DOW looks very weak. It has been a good up-move but yesterday’s candle looks like a reversal candle. Let us wait to see if the market can recover tonight. The global cues look weak today. But we have to wait for the market-specific investor sentiments here as well.
18,000 is a major level and if that is broken, there are chances for higher fall. Will the level be skipped with a gap-down? 41K in BNF is a major point but it looks like it will be taken out today. We will have to see if there is buying on dip.
I will be closely watching 17,950 on the downside and 18,050 on the upside.
