Moody's said it has upgraded Yes Bank rating while changing outlook to 'stable' on the back of its equity capital raise plan announced last week. The global rating agency has upgraded the private sector lender's long-term foreign currency issuer rating and long-term foreign and local currency back deposit ratings to 'Ba3' from 'B2'.

INDIA VIX is at 19.3.
VIX had shot up and crossed 20 yesterday with that sudden fall and fear. This led to a heavy spike in the premium and even the OTM call option spiked with down-move.
It was surprising to see the sudden heavy fall. There were rumours regarding the Taiwan conflict. There was no fall in any other market but our market fell heavily. Everyone thought that the down-move was probably because of uncertainty before RBI decision. But the fall was so steep and there were reports that China was attempting a military drill.
RBI interest rate decision will be out today at 10 AM. The commentary after the announcement will be important. Hope you remember how volatile the move was in the last MPC day.
Bank Nifty has been underperforming for the last few days whereas NIFTY formed consecutive green candles without showing any weakness. Let us see if BNF can shoot up today with the event.
It is expected that there will be a positive commentary and a 40 basis points hike.
I will be watching 17,300 on the downside and 17,500 on the upside.
