Both US and European markets were nervous and traded with negative bias yesterday. However, this morning in Asia session all asset classes are sharply up. There seems to no major news other than US federal starting to implement a bond buying program that was already announced. All risk asset classes are up while US dollar is down.

India: Raising tide lifts all boat?
Global markets mood has always been the driving force behind the Nifty movement for some time. The sudden bullishness displayed in the global markets today will have a positive impact on the Nifty opening today. However, FIIs had sold heavily in the last two sessions while DIIs continued to buy the dips and offered support at lower levels.
Will the sudden and surprise bullishness help a sustained up-move in Nifty?
Today’s market will definitely gap up and sustain the up-move in the morning session at least. However, the sudden bullishness seems to have pushed other economic and pandemic problems to the back burner again. The European session that will commence in the afternoon will offer hints about how the FIIs behave. The index may not sustain higher levels if the FIIs choose to book profits at the higher level. Therefore, the sustaining the initial euphoria will depend again on FIIs

NIFTY -Technical Bias:
Price Action & Pattern:
After yesterday’s consolidation, the Nifty and global markets seem to be in a hurry to go up further. There I expect market to open in positive territory trade above 9900 today. However only FIIs support and sustained bullishness global markets can only take Nifty above 10200.
Bullish spread is appropriate. However, the price action in the after noon session should be watched for and reversal.
