After reaching around 18,900, indecision spread on the expected line. The subsequent consolidation is also expected to spread into today, during which it is important not to exceed 18,715 in order to stick to the 19,400 trajectory. Upside hopes are expected to be diluted on a pullback above 18,715, but a breakdown is not expected unless 18,470 is broken.

A major market positive that has helped global equities over the past few days has been the steady decline in the U.S. dollar index and U.S. bond yields. This trend continues. The dollar index is currently below 105 and the US 10-year Treasury yield is around 3.43%. Another important data is the decline in US manufacturing activity in November. From a market perspective, this negative economic news is paradoxically positive as it suggests that the US economy is responding to the Fed’s monetary tightening. As a result, U.S. inflation is likely to fall further, allowing the Fed to slow down the pace of rate hikes and possibly pause them in the first quarter of 2023. This is good for the market. Back home, despite the strength in our market, valuations are still at elevated levels. The space for further expansion of PE is limited. Therefore, the market may consolidate around current levels.
