India : Border tensions

This time bullish mood on global markets did not carry Nifty higher very far. The escalation in the border tension is causing volatility. FIIs continued to sell yesterday also while DIIs offered support at lower levels and brought the Nifty back up. India seems to be facing several problems including economic, pandemic and border tension. However, the bullish global mood is holding up Nifty so far.

Will Nifty be the next casualty of the border tension?

Right now, the dominant market narrative for India is border tension. Indian army’s willingness to immediately publish higher death toll and subsequent communication shows that Army is ready to take on higher toll and stay aggressive. However, things have cooled down at the moment. Also, two or more days of continues conflict is a low probability event.
