Rise or fall? lets watch today! Pre-Market Report: 12, Jul 2021
Good Morning Everyone, and let us start yet another brand new week in our investing journey with MPI Invest. As we discussed in our weekly meeting on Saturday, the international markets are closed positively on Friday and for us in India today will be the deciding factor, to know if our Index will rebound or break down. However, I am still bullish about the market and if at all the market goes down, it will be short-term and an opportunity for us to add some more nice stocks into our kitty.
As discussed in our weekly meeting, US markets closed on Friday with record highs setting the international markets on a positive note. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 446.29 points, or 1.3%, to 34,868.22, the S&P 500 gained 48.44 points, or 1.12%, to 4,369.26 and the Nasdaq Composite added 139.83 points, or 0.96%, to 14,699.61.
Asian markets were also positive this morning as Japan’s Nikkei bounced 1.9%, while South Korea added 0.6%. Nasdaq futures rose 0.1% and S&P 500 futures were a fraction firmer.
Trends on the SGX nifty signal a positive gap-up start of the Nifty, higher at around 15780 to 15800, however as I told you earlier, we are not seeing any big positivity to actually break the 15900 barrier as of now, which may lead to some more profit booking if the Index moves higher.
But if that if the fall continues, then we may see support at 15700 levels, and if that is broken, we can see more downside to around 15650 and 15600 levels.
However, with our strategy, we should be able to achieve our small targets in our stock holdings which may not be affected much by the Index movement.
