Global Markets: -Going strong
US markets ended with gains yesterday. Nasdaq was hitting all-time highs while S&P 500 erased all its 2020 losses. European markets were flat after recent sharp up move. Emerging market ETFs/assets traded in US continued to trend up. All risk assets such as emerging market equities, high yield bonds, EM currencies were up. Crude oil was down because of Saudi Arabia limiting its production cuts to the agreed levels. This is unrelated to global risk on mood. Earlier Saudi Arabia was cutting oil production over and above the agreed levels. All-around risk on mood in the global markets is intact. Safe haven assets USD, JPY and Gold consolidating after recent losses.
ASIAN Markets this morning: - Positive
Asian markets are trading in positive territory this morning except for Nikkei which is flat. SGX Nifty is trading about 65 points above yesterday’s Nifty close.
There are no significant calendar events scheduled today. Import, Export and Trade balance numbers will be released tomorrow after market closes.,
India: How strong is Nifty?
Nifty opened strongly yesterday but it could not hold the gains and ended with comparatively smaller gain. FIIs purchases are moderating while DIIs’ profit booking is increasing. Advance decline ratio for broader market is still strong. Asset under management of Mutual funds increased by 2.6 % for the May'20 which shows retail investors are confident.
Where will Nifty go today?
The broad buyer’s interest is likely to absorb profit booking by DIIs who are unlikely to push the Index below 10K. FIIs have been continuously buying in cash market interest although is their interest is waning, Therefore, I hope there is no danger to the upward trend of Nifty at the moment.
Hero Motors will declare its results today. CenturyTex will declare its results tomorrow.
NIFTY -Technical Bias:
Price Action & Pattern:
FIIs interest in the emerging market currencies and assets remain. DIIs are testing the strength of the trend with sizable profit booking. Therefore, I expect Nifty to open in positive territory and hold 10K levels today while higher levels at around 10350 could see profit booking. Expected range for Nifty today is 9980 to 10350.
Bullish spreads or spreads that will work on sideways market are appropriate in today’s market
