As we discussed yesterday, we have to watch the Covid cues. An irony is that the markets which are directly affected by the pandemic are not falling whereas our markets keep falling. However, it is true that there are Covid worries in the Indian market.
We had a steep rally in the previous weeks. This also means that the pullback will be big. Profit booking took place triggered by Covid fear and other negativity such as rate hikes and recession. However, this does not look like a mere pullback considering the magnitude of the fall. Major swing points have been broken with even 18K getting crossed without a pause.
Since the global markets are not falling, we may see some up-move in our market. Will there be short-covering leading to bigger up-moves is the question.
We do not have UK and Germany markets to look for cues in the noon today. The US markets also will remain closed on account of Christmas-Boxing day celebrations.
Initial price action is important. I’m impatient to see what happens towards the close; Further fall, consolidation or will there be a short covering taking NIFTY above 18K with strength?
I will watch 17,650 on the downside and 17,870 on the upside in NIFTY.
