The US Fed meeting is scheduled for 2nd November and the decision on tapering will be crucial for the market. With this, NIFTY is currently showing technical weakness and emotional cautiousness with few buyers at the lows this time. Today’s gap-up opening will be important to see if the market can close in green.
There is also economic indicators from India coming out this week, including auto sales data for October starting today.
Any move above 17,950 will indicate bullishness and if NIFTY sustains above 18,043 we can say that there could be more upside to all-time highs. If moving lower, the current support at 17,610 will need to be watched along with a crucial support zone around 17,400. I will be giving more respect to the bears this week unless there is a significant up-move by Wednesday.
Expect heavy volatility till 10:30 AM, as the market finds its true levels.
