Trade setup for 24th March

 Now it is the crude that is getting a lot of attention. In India, fuel prices have been increased by 80ps for 2 consecutive days. It will keep increasing if the international crude price increases.

The EU is divided on whether they should ban oil and gas from Russia. The Russia-Ukaraine war is not showing signs of ending. It has been 4 weeks now.

Yesterday, there was a wonderful gap up but there was no follow-through and markets fell. Banknifty fell 800 points from high. HDFC and icici were the major contributors.

Today Russian markets are going to open after a month. It will be interesting to see how it reacts.

NATO will be providing aid to Russia. 

Paytm is not showing any signs of relief. I bought a few days back and sitting with a 20% cut. :) These are some of the bad effects of investing which is why I am a trader.

The fuel-dependent stocks like paints, autos are falling. The war is not yet over, so stop assuming that the bottom has formed or the top has formed. The markets can take any kind of turn.

Now Russia is not accepting USD for oil or gas purchases. They are demanding Rubbel. India has agreed and prepared a Ruppe-Rubel agreement.
