Ashika Stock Broking on today’s market: Chances remain high of price consolidation

Tirthankar Das, technical & derivative analyst, retail, Ashika Stock Broking: On the technical front, Nifty formed a bullish candle on the daily charts with lower shadow, reflecting the emergence of buying interest amidst the past few days of range-bound movement. The sequence of higher high formation remains unabated without any signs of price exhaustion or topping out situation. Though chances remain high of price consolidation after a sharp rally of almost 1700 points in last one month. Nifty since the past few days of trading session has led the Index to breach past the falling trend line which confirms that the primary trend is up and is well placed to accelerate the upward momentum hereon, aptly supported by global cues with lower-than-expected US inflation numbers and multi-sector participation in our domestic market. India VIX, which gauges market volatility, has also recorded five months’ range breakdown and is trading below 16, indicating low-risk perception among market participants, followed by sequential lower high-low formation in USINR to favour inflows in Indian equities. Now the elevated support level for the market now stands at 17950 followed by 17500 as it happens to be the 50 days EMA and the breakout point from the 12 months falling trend line. The momentum indicator RSI (relative strength index) is presently at 68 slightly closer to overbought situation however present setup indicates that Nifty is on the path to challenge the all-time high of 18600 in coming sessions followed by 18900 in near term. During the day Nifty is likely to open on a flat note and lower levels of 18300 need to be utilized for initiating long position for an upside target of 18600.

FTX Latest: Fears of Contagion Darken the Crypto Sector Outlook

The crypto industry braced for more contagion from the fall of Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX empire. The US and The Bahamas are talking about bringing him to America for questioning, people familiar with the matter said.

Bankman-Fried took to Twitter on Wednesday, telling his followers that “there was too much leverage — more than I realized” in his business. That came a few hours after he posted that FTX US had enough money to repay customers.

The fallout from the crisis is threatening the future of crypto lenders like BlockFi Inc. and Voyager Digital Ltd. Digital-asset markets were steady in a break from recent turmoil, with Bitcoin hovering around $17,000. (Bloomberg)

ECB Will Increase Interest Rates Further, Holzmann Says

The European Central Bank will continue to increase borrowing costs, according to Governing Council member Robert Holzmann.

“We’ve recently raised interest rates strongly,” he said in Vienna on Tuesday. “We will raise interest rates further.”

Still, the Austrian central bank chief — among the ECB’s most hawkish officials — said the Governing Council must be mindful of too strong moves that could lead “not just to stagnation, but to a recession.”

The ECB has already raised rates by 200 basis points this year and is expected to hike again at its December meeting. (Bloomberg)

Oil prices steady as China COVID worries outweigh supply concerns

Oil prices were little changed on Wednesday as COVID-19 cases in China continued to climb, sparking worries of lower fuel demand in the world’s top crude importer, and outweighing concerns about an escalation of geopolitical tensions and tighter oil supply.

Brent crude futures dropped by 6 cents, or 0.1%, to $93.80 a barrel by 0148 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures fell 4 cents, or 0.1%, to $86.88 a barrel.

Oil prices settled higher on Tuesday after oil supply to parts of Eastern and Central Europe via a section of the Druzhba pipeline was temporarily suspended, according to oil pipeline operators in Hungary and Slovakia.

This disruption came concurrent with an explosion in a village in eastern Poland near the Ukrainian border that killed two people, raising concerns that the Ukraine conflict could spill over its borders. (Reuters)
