Good Morning, Everyone, The Nifty had a strong close above 17400 yesterday and that shows the investors have reacted enough to the initial Omicron scare and don't mind investing in good stocks at a good price during this time until another scare comes from Omicron.
FIIs continued to sell, but what gives us confidence is the DIIs who kept on buying more than double of what the FIIs sell. This shows the confidence of DIIs in the market.
As for today, I will be bearish for the short term if Nifty goes below 17300 and will turn bullish once Nifty crosses 17600.
