    We closed well above 16,600 which is a good start to the new series. We should be heading to 16,850-16,900 which is the next level of resistance for the index. For now, the stop loss level for the Nifty stands at 16,400 but it shall be updated on Monday.

    Markets are largely mirroring the global counterparts and now all eyes are on the US Fed Chair statements for any signal on tapering and way forward. Though the trend is positive, we are not seeing decisiveness as participation is slightly restricted. We thus suggest avoiding aggressive bets and preferring index majors over others.

    Indian markets started marginally in red following mixed cues from Asian peers as investors wait to hear US Fed chair about the state of the US economy and guidance on the central bank’s exit from the measures it took to rescue the economy from the Covid-19 pandemic. 

    Traders took some support from a private report stating that hiring activity witnessed an overall 4 percent sequential growth in July and the uptick was mainly spread across metros. It said compared to June, July 2021 saw a notable overall monthly growth of 4 percent in hiring across all metros. 

    The sentiment was also boosted by RBI Governor's statement that it won't surprise the market with a sudden rate hike and all monetary policy actions would be carefully calibrated.

    Investors will be looking for clarity on the tapering plans by the Fed. Unlike in the past, Fed Chairman would clearly communicate it to the market to prevent another episode of the taper tantrum. Though the inflation rate is at an uncomfortable level, the uncertainty arising from the delta variant is a cause of concern for the Fed Chairman. And a better picture of the tapering plans will evolve from the FOMC meeting in September.

    Nifty formed a bullish candle on the daily scale with a long lower shadow while it continues to make higher highs higher lows from the last four weeks. 

    Now it has to continue to hold above 16,700 to extend the move towards new lifetime high territory of 16,800 and 17,000.

    On the downside, support is seen at 16,500 and 16,380 levels. 

    India VIX fell by 1 percent from 13.54 to 13.34 level. Cooling down of volatility from recent swing highs has given a buy on decline stance to the market and now VIX needs to hold below 12 to get more buying interest in the broader market.

    The market witnessed a swift recovery after the initial fall. It seems 16,500 will be an important support level in the short term. 

    If the market breaches the level of 16,720-16,740 and sustains above this level, it may gain momentum and may march towards 16,950-17,000 levels. 

    Momentum indicators like RSI and MACD may stay positive and the market breadth may improve, further strengthening the short-term bullish outlook.

    Anil Kumar Bhansali, Head of Treasury at Finrex Treasury Advisors: Dollar-Rupee broke the 74.10 mark and fell below 74.00 level to the near term support of 73.80 as National Banks purportedly acting on behalf of RBI left the 74.10 level which they had protected three times in the last few days. The flows in the system were sufficient  to take the rupee upto 73.80. If 73.80 is broken then we can see 73.50 and even lower levels which of course could be slowed down by RBI accumulating the inflows. 

    With IPOs of LIC, Asset Monetization and BPCL divestment we could see more inflows coming. The Jackson Holes Meeting today is crucial to determine Fed's view on tapering.
