Pre Market Report:

  1. Over the weekend, Corona Virus affected cases reported in Italy, Iran and South Korea.
  2. That triggered panic selling across the world.
  3. Nifty fell nearly 250 points.
  4. All Nifty 50 stocks ended in Red after more than a decade, if I am not wrong.
  5. India VIX shot up 24%.
  6. Put options shot up but Call options did not fall propertionally.
  7. Bank Nifty Feb 31000CE, which is 600 points away, just 3 more days for expiry, closed around Rs 65. This is huge premium.
  8. When our markets opened yesterday, Dow futures were down by 300 points.
  9. That started falling more and more and at one point it was down 850 points.
  10. So our markets came under severe selling pressure after trading around 11900 for most part of the day.
  11. When Dow opened, it opened around 1000 point lower.
  12. At the lowest point, it was down by 1200 points and then in the last 15 minutes, recovered about 200 points.

  24. Yesterday panic started from South Korea, now trading in Green.
  25. Right now, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore are trading in Green.

  27. SBI was very firm in the morning, but came under selling pressure later.
  28. SBI Card IPO is near, so there may not be any more selling in SBI.
  29. I expect SBI Card issue to be a huge success and SBI will trade positive in March series as well.
  30. Markets can be highly volatile as we are very close to expiry.
  31. There is huge shorting in F&O by FIIS. There is little premium in next month series.
  32. So there is no incentive to rollover the Shorts.

Pre- Market Analysis (5th May 2022)

U.S Markets closed higher yesterday. Asian markets are higher. SGX nifty is up 150 points. Yesterday was a very tricky and unexpected session. As soon as Market opened there was a continuous selling. Market was falling left , right and center without taking any support. I was wondering why is the Market going against the global cues Then we got the news about RBI Governer press conference. So some informed people already knew about this rate hike. Hence there was a sudden selling in the markets. RBI hiked repo rate by 40 basis points and Cash Reverse ratio by 50 basis points. Repo rate is the rate at which banks borrow money from RBI. When the rate is increased banks borrow money at higher cost and in turn loans also get costlier. This slows down the growth and liquidity in the Market temporarily. Cash reserve ratio is the interest free deposit money which banks have to keep with RBI. RBI uses that money without having to pay any interest on it. Increasing CRR means RBI is

Pre - Market Analysis (18th April 2022)

U.S Markets closed lower on Thursday. Asian markets are all lower. Dow futures are lower right now. SGX Nifty is down 250 points. Indicating a huge gap down at the open. Reason is the Global markets underperformance plus not so good corporate results. Infosys has disappointed and missed earnings by street estimates. Infy ADR was down 9% in last 2 trading sessions in U.S Hdfc bank also missed earnings but asset quality has been improved. Today we can expect huge gap down openimg in infy. Hdfc bank has limited downside left because it has already fallen a lot after the merger news. 17150-17200 is a strong support on Nifty and this is where 200 DMA kicks in. If you are a Bull this is a large support area. Markets are oversold and this offers a good opportunity to go long. Nect support comes in at 17k. If global markets keep declining then no support would work. Bank Nifty 200 DMA kicks in at 36800. Bank Nifty looks much stronger than Nifty currently as IT isn't included in

Pre - Market Analysis (11th April 2022)

U.S Markets closed mixed on Friday. Dow Jones closed slightly higher. S&P 500 was flat and Nasdaq is very weak. Right now , Dow futures are lower. SGX Nifty is down 100 points. So we are in for a gap down opening today. Friday was a quite interesting day. As expected , RBI policy was a status quo. Nifty broke Thursday low of 17640 and traded below for quite some time. And then for a short squeeze. All the shorts were trapped and we had a big rally. Most importantly , India VIX was down 7% on Friday. I expect markets to consolidate between 17600 to 18100 for a while. I do not see a reason to be excessively bearish now. Markets went from 17700 to 18100 because of hdfc twins. And then crashed to 17600 because of these both stocks. These both stocks have given up all of their gains and are back to Pre merger levels. There is very limited downside now for these stocks and expecting these stocks to bottom out soon 17500 to 17600 is a strong buy zone on Nifty. Also earnings se
