3) MPC meeting
The monetary policy meeting begins today and might’ve contributed in bringing the market sentiment up today as traders and investors keep a eye on the same in hope of measures to be taken to drive and boost the economy.
4) Technical Analysis – By moneycontrol
The Nifty50 climbed over a percent and formed bullish candle on the daily charts so far after witnessing bearish candle formation in previous four straight sessions.
The bounce back was on expected lines but the index needs to decisively surpass 11,200 levels to bulls with strong strength, otherwise the consolidation may continue, experts feel.
“The short term trend of the Nifty continues to remain bearish – we would need to get past 11,200 for it to turn bullish. The markets would lose further steam if we break 10,900 on an intraday basis as that could take us further south to 10,780,” Manish Hathiramani, Proprietary Index Trader and Technical Analyst at Deen Dayal Investments told Moneycontrol.
