What to expect today?

Yesterday, NIFTY fell heavily, owing to technical weakness and huge surge in US treasury bond yield, breaking many supports to close just above the major support of 14,500. You can read all about yesterday’s movements here.

Bank Nifty, which was more bearish, fell by breaking the support at 34,000 and closed just below it.

All sectors moved down yesterday, except FMCG which was supported by ITC.

Most Asian markets are in the red, with most of them trading more than 1% down. SGX Nifty is currently trading lower at 14,485 indicating a gap-down opening in the Indian market. Actually, a gap down opening is happening after a long time in the market.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s The Stock Market Show, 14,500 is a major support for NIFTY. If that is broken with strength, we might see a considerable correction in the market. Similarly, Bank Nifty has a medium support at 33,500, which if broken will take the index to below 33,000.

We also have to understand that FIIs have been buying in the last many days. If they also start selling, we might see NIFTY going to 14,000.

Moving up, NIFTY has strong resistances at 14,630 and 14,750.

The coming few days is going to be very action packed and decisive for the market. Please plan averaging/fresh long entries only after getting a bullish trend signal.

Interestingly, India VIX has further gone down to 20.08, even after such a fall yesterday.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net bought worth Rs 1258 crores, and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net sold shares worth Rs 1116 crores in the Indian equity market. 

Going to watch into today’s OI buildups to get an idea of what is coming up.

The Central bank of Japan will announce their rates and policies today. I know that does not hold much value now but let’s see if they’ll do anything different.

The plan is to understand the trend and capitalise it when we have the opportunity, just like I did yesterday. When markets fell yesterday, I sold many call options and even bought puts. So, let’s all be intelligent and make use of trending markets.
