Truth be told, the market had gotten very oversold — both equities and the foreign exchange. Therefore, a pullback was always going to be very technical in nature. Also, the market is very close to expiry, so maybe some of the shorts might have closed out as well and booked profits.
The same set of stocks, which were beaten down most, gained today. Therefore, there was no great leadership in this “upmove” at all. So, everything that the screen is showing is suggestive of a technical respite to the one-way fall. Well, it might become more if global markets generate some positive newsflow.
Unless there is some massive global event, can’t see how markets can turn the corner quite so easily.
