Red Hot Inflation data makes Market Red (14th Feb 2024)


1. U.S Markets crashed yesterday. 
2. All the indices closed lower by more than a percent.
3. Dow at one point of time was down 700+ Points.
4. Last 30 minutes short covering rally made the picture look a bit better.
5. Asian markets are all lower.
6. Inflation data was expected at 2.9% but it had come at 3.1%
7. Inflation data higher than expected delays Fed rate cut.
8. Hence there was a Red paint all over markets.
9. U.S Markets have rallied expecting positive outcome.
10. Since there was a bad number the optimism is setlling.
11. Next,  I would like to bring to table that Mid & Small cap stocks are looking very vulnerable for a correction.
12. Actually we had a 7-8% correction from the top on mid & Small caps so markets are already a bit lighter.
13. This correction was highly anticipated because the markets were getting heated up.
14. Markets rallying in a straight line is also dangerous.
15. Markets going 2 steps up and 1 step down is the ideal Bull Market scenario.
16. This way the Bull Market succeeds over longer term. 
17. Volatility was increased tremendously now.
18. Within minutes there has been half a percent move in the indices.
19. 21580 is the support for nifty.
20. Next strongest support is 21500.
21. I sense today's reaction was a knee jerk reaction to numbers.
22. Markets are expected to bring sanity from today.
23. Nifty might trade between 21500 to 21800 today.

Most of the large caps have disappointed. 14. Star of the pack

1. U.S Markets closed  higher yesterday.  2  Right now , Dow Futures are slightly higher. 3. SGX Nifty is higher by 40-50 Points. 4. Asian Markets are higher. 5. Yesterday was a strange trading day. 6. I say strange because SGX Nifty pre market was showing 30-40 point gap up opening. 7. Nifty opened around 120 points higher. 8. This was a huge gap up out of nowhere. 9. So naturally it was an excellent shorting opportunity.  10. The Volatility again yesterday was super high. 11. Nifty tested the previous day low of 18100 once again yesterday.  12. There was an intense selling during the last 30 minutes yesterday.  13.
