Calm before the storm? Where is Nifty headed?
Good Morning everyone, The Nifty closed almost flat yesterday after some small move on both sides, but as I had told you, since 17400 is broken, we are seeing some bearishness in the Nifty for this week. Along with that, we have the FOMC meeting in US today, results of which will come tonight. With rising inflation in US, there are expectation of the US govt. planning to reduce support to the economy and the interest rates might rise too. Also the Indian WPI inflation data came in yesterday, which was higher than expectation. With such jitters in mind, we might see some sell off today. As of now, I will consider 17200 as the next support for the Nifty on the lower side and 17400 will now act as a resistance. If any of them is broken, we can see a movement to either side today.
