HDFC Bank announced a strong quarterly result with 20% growth YoY. Let us see how the heavyweight moves today.
It was a strong close for the global markets on Friday and this will add positivity to our markets. However, breaking 16,280 will be a challenge. Even if that level is crossed, the zone of 16,450 to 16,500 will be rather hard for the index to cross in the coming days.
This week has fewer major events other than the quarterly results. However, the sentiments can be driven by the comments at the ECB Press Conference on Thursday.
Let us watch FMCG heavyweights which are rallying for the last weeks.
Look at the hourly charts in NIFTY. You can see that there is a down-trending channel. There have been impulsive down-moves and pull-backs. 16,050 was a major level in this trend and there will be a trend reversal with NIFTY opening higher. Let us see how the first hour ends.
It is important to watch BANK NIFTY which is bearish in a longer timeframe and a close above 35,000 is necessary for the general market to move higher.
I will be watching 16,000 on the downside and 16,280 on the upside.
