I was expecting some sort of recovery yesterday considering the up-move in the US markets on Wednesday. Surprisingly, there was a follow-up candle on the downside. Since the market had a steep rally, a sharp pullback could be expected. However, the move we had does not like a mere pullback.
It could be profit booking triggered by Covid fear. As we discussed earlier, reports were saying 60% of the Chinese population will be Covid-affected in the coming weeks.
The major swing point of 18,130 has been broken and this is a rather bearish sign. The close is just below the level.
The global cues are negative now with the US markets erasing the gains. US quarterly GDP came out stronger, growing by 3.2% and this might have led to the fear of hikes. UK GDP fell by 0.3%, more than expected. Japan’s November core inflation has hit a 40-year high.
I will watch 18,025 on the downside and 18,130 on the upside in NIFTY.
