The global cues are mixed as the US markets remained shut on account of Memorial Day. FTSE will reopen today after three days. Let us get cues for the second half from FTSE and DAX.
The Asian markets also are mixed now giving us less clues about our market’s initial price action. NIKKEI is consolidating after a fall today. Keep in mind that NIKKEI is at a 33-year high.
Euro Inflation expectation is the only major global cue that we have to keep an eye on. However, we have the real data coming out on Thursday. Germany inflation data will be released tomorrow.
The first time ATH was approached, there was a proper rejection in BNF. As it is the second time, the level has been broken well and the market is consolidating well above the previous ATH. Let us see if the up-trend continues.
NIFTY has to travel a bit more to reach ATH. A consolidation here and a strong breakout after refuelling strength can lead to a sustained rally.
It is FIN NIFTY expiry and that takes my focus to the level of 19,600. It will be a major resistance. There is a huge call OI addition as well. Breaking the level can lead to further up-move.
I will watch 18,580 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,640 can be watched on the upside.
