Markets Ahead

An unbelievable case of market volatility. Yesterday we say a fall of nearly 3% and today we are seeing a rally of nearly the same percentage.

The Chinese central bank cut its interest rates and induced a lot of positivity into the Asian markets. Our indices followed along with them and shot up in the day.

The 16,000 zone which was supposed to act as a resistance, became a good support in the day. There is however a good resistance at 16,300 being indicated for NIFTY.

Crude oil prices are staying stable in the $110/barrel range internationally. Stocks which benefit from this, including Reliance, may be strong. Reliance alone contributed more than 110 points to NIFTY today.
