Global Economic News:
Greek debt drama
Once again Greece faces a deadline to receive much-needed bailout funds
from its international backers, but so far it has not fulfilled the terms of
its prior commitments. With heavy debts coming due in April and July, Greece
hopes to strike a deal at the last EU summit before the European election
calendar kicks off in March. Finance ministers meet on 20 February, with Greece
near the top of their to-do list. There is mounting concern that several
European partners will not participate in the bailout any longer if the
International Monetary Fund doesn't. The IMF this week called Greece’s debt
burden unsustainable and called for debt forgiveness.
Le Pen lays out economic vision
Populist French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen formally kicked
off her campaign this week, laying out her economic agenda. Le Pen called for
pulling France out of the eurozone, reintroducing the franc and drastically
curbing immigration. Le Pen has consistently led the polling in the first round
of France’s two-round system but trails a variety of centrist challengers in
the second round.
China’s reserves slip
Having peaked in 2015 at over $4 trillion, China’s foreign exchange
reserves slipped below $3 trillion in January, according to government data.
Beijing has been selling down reserve assets for the past 18 months to try to
stem capital outflows from the Chinese mainland.
Commons backs Brexit
The UK House of Commons voted on Wednesday to allow the government to
begin negotiations with the European Union. The bill now goes before the House
of Lords, which can delay but not halt the triggering of Article 50.
Euro too low for Germany
German finance minister Wolfgang Schaüble this week acknowledged that
the euro’s exchange rate with the US dollar is too low for Germany’s competitive
condition but said that the European Central Bank must make policy for all of
Europe, not just Germany. Tensions were inflamed both inside and outside the
eurozone as Germany posted a record annual trade surplus, in excess of €250
billion. US president Donald Trump’s principal trade advisor commented recently
that Germany has been manipulating the euro exchange rate in order to gain
GLOBAL CORPORATE NEWS
Trump consults with Asian leaders
US president Donald Trump spoke by phone for the first time with
Chinese president Xi Jinping and reaffirmed the US commitment to the One China
policy. That policy was called into question during the presidential
transition, when Trump had direct contact with Taiwanese president Tsai
Ing-wen, an apparent breach of protocol. Trump urged closer US–China ties in
the call, according to the White House.

for the S&P 500 Index are expected to increase 8.2% from the fourth

The Nifty traded in a narrow range throughout the day and was unable to
close above 8800. However, it did manage to close in the positive territory for
the day as well as for the week. On the lower side, the immediate support is at
8770, whereas the resistance is pegged at 8830, ie the trend line joining the
recent highs. The overall trend in the short-term remains positive, as the
Nifty is still trading above its crucial support levels. The Bank Nifty looks
weaker in the short term compared to the Nifty, but if it manages to surpass
the swing high of 20407, then it will gain further upward momentum. The
momentum indicator KST has gone into a ‘sell’ mode for both the Indices, which
is the only concern in the short term.
we are still holding 8681 suggesting bulls are still
having upper hand eventhough we are not able to cross the gann arc, as shown in
below chart. Bearish only on close below 8681 and bullish above 8840 in between
choppy move continue. High made today was 8822 and low made was 8771 so
we did not break 8840 on Upside and 8681 on downside forming an inside day pattern
suggesting choppy move to continue, Bulls should protect 8681 and till its
protected move towards 8969 and above is quiet possible. Once the Gann arc as
shown below is broken bulls will shown an impulsive move on upside.
