Outlook for 21 August, 2008:-
Market has been like a rocking chair for the last 2 days. There have been ups and downs but ultimately it is at the same place i.e. around 4380-4410. Volumes too have dropped and trading activity is drying.
Indices moved up yesterday after 5 down sessions. The bounce may still continue but the FII selling is not stopping and low volumes are not able to absorb it.
Nifty may face resistance at 4530 levels. Crude has come down from 147 to nearly $110/barrel but there has not been any rally because of this so far. There are market-talks like NSG approving the Nuke deal but all good news seem to be discounted in the prices. One would rather wait for further action. Sometimes not having a position is also a position in the market.
