India: Uninspiring Stimulus & Lockdown extension.

On top of it, lockdown is being extended till May 31 to control spread of corona virus. Goldman Sachs expects second quarter GDP will fall by 45% on account of lockdown. This will be the deepest recession for India on record

NIFTY -Technical Bias:
Price Action & Pattern:
Nifty if falls below 9000 will mean, the downside pressures are increasing. Then it could move towards 8800 and then to 8200 levels. However positive global mood and Reliance could offer support to Nifty. Therefore I expect nifty to trade sideways with downward bias today.
Option spread traders who are holding on to bear spread may continue to hold it and more if down move resumes
