Trend To Be Decided By Macros, 12000 The Psychological Hurdle

Our Analysis

This week the frontline indices had a subdued performance. The Nifty which took a hit in the first half of the week retraced from its support near 9-EMA and witnessed a momentum at the end. Once again it was the banking stocks who helped the market to sustain.

Throughout the week, The buzz of the macro data kept the investor awake. The Inflation which recorded at 4 percent was majorly due to the rise in the food price, along with the IIP which contracted to 4.3 percent for the second month raised the questions for rate cuts.

Technically, Nifty had been trading in a narrow range of 200 points from the last 12 days. In downside 11,800 is the support and on the upside 12,000 will play a psychological hurdle. Now we are done with the earnings releases so the upcoming GDP data and RBI Monetary policy along with the US-China trade deal will decide the faith of the Indian share market.
