What to Expect?
NIFTY opened with a gap-up at 16,481 and fell sharply. There was fear of rate hike. As soon as the rate was announced, market shot up, crossed the day-high and fell again. 16,500 acted as a strong resistance and 16,300 was a good support. The index closed at 16,356, down by 60 points or 0.37%.
BANK NIFTY opened with a gap-up at 35,168 and broke out after an initial down-move. Resistance at 35,400 pushed the index lower and BNF closed at 34,946, down by 50 points or 0.14%.
FMCG moved down by 1% and IT moved higher.

INDIA VIX is below 20 now. But let us see if there is a consecutive close below 20.
Foreign Institutional Investors net sold shares worth Rs 2,500 crores. Domestic Institutional Investors net bought shares worth Rs 1,900 crores.
That was a special day! The chart will certainly stand apart from other days due to the extreme volatility as it was an event day. There was a cup and handle formation and when NIFTY tried to break out, the resistance pushed the index down and led to M formation finally resulting in a huge sell-off. We know that rate hike is not good for the market.
RBI also increased the inflation forecast to 6.7% from 5.7%. Let us see if the repo rate which is at 4.9% now will reach 6% by March. The Governor said that he cannot speculate the future hikes but the committee will act as and when needed. The accommodative stance has been withdrawn but liquidity is still high and in that sense, there is accommodative aspect to the policy.
As mentioned yesterday, we have got a follow-up for the red candle below 16,500. We will have to see if support is taken at 16,300. Look at the pace at which market shot up and fell from the high. This is the speciality of bearish trend. There will be quick recoveries and quicker falls.
Premium was very high yesterday ahead of the event. IV crush led to huge decay in the premium and the ATM straddle sum is less than 140 now, which was more than 150 for the previous expiry.
Though you can see the global markets in red, there is no much negativity but just the worry before ECB decision on interest rate today and US CPI to be released tomorrow.
I will be watching 16,240 on the downside and 16,400 on the upside.
