Good Morning Everyone, Yesterday the Nifty opened with a big gap up and it sustained through a volatile day and finally closed near 17500 crossing the major resistance at 17300-17400 zone as shown in the image below.
Today, I am expecting the market to again open with a gap down, but today is the monthly expiry, and that too the last of this financial year. So we can see huge volatility to continue and suggest taking trades with caution.
The good news is that for the first time after several months, we could see the FIIs and DIIs buying for more than 1000 cr in a day. IF this continues, we can see more highs in the Nifty.
U.S. stocks fell on Wednesday, with the Dow and S&P 500 snapping four-session winning streaks, on waning signs of progress for peace talks between Ukraine and Russia against a backdrop of a hawkish Federal Reserve curbing economic growth.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 65.38 points, or 0.19%, to 35,228.81, the S&P 500 lost 29.15 points, or 0.63%, to 4,602.45 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 177.36 points, or 1.21%, to 14,442.28.
Shares in Asia-Pacific were mixed in Thursday morning trade as oil prices fell sharply. In the broader Asia-Pacific markets, mainland Chinese stocks declined in morning trade as the Shanghai composite shed 0.26% while the Shenzhen component slipped 0.652%. The Nikkei 225 in Japan was near flat while the Topix index sat little changed. South Korea’s Kospi climbed 0.48%.
Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a positive opening for Nifty in India above 17500, which is a good sign. However, We might see some consolidation and I am not expecting a big upward movement today.
