The geopolitical risk associated with Hong Kong is raising. US president will announce measures possibly economic sanctions on China this evening. The calmness in the VIX index indicates that the global markets are consolidating at the moment, bubbling geo political risks could threaten trade and send market sharply lower.

The Gold is up but USD is down because of strong Euro.

ASIAN Markets this morning: - Sideways with negative bias

Any tough economic sanctions on China could hit trade flow in Asia. Obviously, the Asia markets are on watch. They are mostly trading with negative bias this morning. SGX Nifty index is down about 100 points compared to yesterday’s Nifty close but seems to be recovering from morning lows

India : -Economic woes plus geopolitical risk

Apart from Hong Kong related geopolitical risk, India is facing its own border dispute with China. The festering border stand off could flare up.

NIFTY -Technical Bias:

Price Action & Pattern:

Nifty - Range Bound?

Nifty - Range Bound?

Nifty did not go up as much as other markets during the last few days of rally. Political risks and US president news conference after market hours will keep Nifty tense and range bound. At the moment chances of market breaking out of 9520 does not look bright. At lower level, Nifty may take support at around 9180.

India VIX may raise.
