There are many who expect BN to hit All-time high soon. The last hour recovery we had yesterday has reignited their hope.
My focus will be on FTSE prie action today. The index is now at an 8-week low. It is easier for our market to move higher if there is global support.
Fridays are known for trending days. Even on last Friday, we had a very good up-move after the initial down-move.
Just make sure that you do not trade against the trend especially in the second half.
I will watch 18,280 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,350 can be watched on the upside.
