The US inflation data was a blow to the market. CPI accelerated by 6.2% in the last 12 months and this is the worst in three decades. NASDAQ is down by more than 1.6%.
IT stocks will be in focus today to see whether the stocks will follow NASDAQ or provide support to the market.
Like the recent expiries, the first hour will be volatile today as well. It is better to wait to understand the trend before entering fresh positions.
17,880, if not 17,940 would support the market from further fall. Once 17,880 is broken, I will sell call options aggressively. I will watch 18,050 on the upside.
As I said on The Stock Market Show yesterday, expiries have been crazily volatile off late. So, I’ll be trading very conservatively. I want you all to do the same.
