Last trading day of the year & where will Nifty close?
Good Morning, Everyone, US markets fell yesterday after 6 days of rising, however, the Indian market continues to consolidate yesterday.
The Nifty closed flat at 17203 after opening at 17201, after volatile moves in the day.
17200 has been acting as support multiple times for the last 2 days, which looks good if Nifty can maintain above this level to help raise up further. However, if 17200 is broken towards the downside, we can see markets consolidating again.

China's factory activity unexpectedly accelerated in December, but only by a small margin, according to an official survey released on Friday, amid disruptions from COVID outbreaks and as the broader economy loses momentum in the fourth quarter.
The official manufacturing Purchasing Manager's Index (PMI) rose to 50.3 from 50.1 in November, data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showed.
South Korea's factory output in November far outperformed expectations on strong exports orders for cars and chips, government data showed on Thursday.
Industrial production last month increased by a seasonally adjusted 5.1% from October, beating a median 2.5% gain tipped in a Reuters survey as car output soared 11.3%
Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a positive opening for the index in India with a 13-point gain. As told earlier 17200 will be an important level to watch.
Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) makers are bracing for inflation in key inputs in 2022, but expect it to be offset by strong demand for their products in the coming year.
Two major trends in 2022 will be an uptick in discretionary spending and consumer movement towards branded products, several companies in the FMCG sector told Moneycontrol.
“While we expect the overall inflationary trends to continue, the discretionary spends have picked up in the last few quarters. In the last six-eight months, we have seen a good uptick in categories like snacks, juices, premium biscuits, deodorants, and premium soaps. We see this trend continuing in the upcoming year as well,” said an ITC spokesperson.
