Trade setup for 18th Feb

 Now again the Russian saga has started. Biden makes a remark that Russia may invade Ukraine. This sparked volatility and Dow fell more than 500 points in yesterday's trade. I personally don't think this is happening on the ground. It's just these politicians passing comments to increase the diplomatic pressure. This is because crude oil fell in yesterday's trade. Crude oil will be the first to react if there was an escalation. But stock markets just need some news to be volatile. So today if there is a huge gap down then I will go long aggressively as there will be recovery.

There are some pro-Russian people in Ukraine who have attacked a village in Ukraine.  Maybe this was done by Russia but now Russia will be using indirect ways only because attacking directly will not be that easy.

Green energy policy has been unveiled and it has benefitted many companies, especially from the Adani group.

The US says that a nuclear deal might be possible with Iran.

FED is telling that they want to increase the rates but that will happen gradually and they are not in a hurry. So it looks like an indication that the first-rate hike will be within 25bps.
