Markets Ahead

Russians have now entered Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine. What caused global markets to react negatively yesterday have temporarily been put on hold currently.

European countries and America have not launched any attacks on Russia, instead have resorted to putting financial pressure. Europe continues to accept Russian Natural Gas, which it is heavily dependent on. This has caused crude and gas prices to calm down.

So even though there are fresh attacks going on in Ukraine, the markets are brutally ignoring it currently.

India VIX also fell back. NIFTY and BANK NIFTY however have not gained back to closing levels of Wednesday. This level will have to be broken back to show that the markets have recovered completely from the fall now.

The current doubt is if this is just a bounce before the next fall. As we know, the current market situations are driven mostly by the news. Any reports of fresh attacks by Western Countries in Ukrainian soil would trigger more panic.
