We respected the gap opening and the index moved up further to close above 18100. Next week would be crucial for the Nifty. If we can keep above 18150 for a couple of sessions, the markets can scale up higher to 18400 and then 18600. This will also take out the upper end of the current range which will add further momentum to the index.

Gold heads for best week in 6 mths as inflation fears balloon
Gold prices eased on Friday due to a firmer dollar but were on track for their biggest weekly gain in six months as concerns over soaring US consumer prices boosted the metal's appeal as an inflation hedge. Spot gold fell 0.2% to $1,857.84 per ounce by 0625 GMT, after hitting a five-month peak on Wednesday. US gold futures eased 0.1% to $1,861.30. The dollar index soared to its highest since July 2020, pressuring bullion by increasing its cost to buyers holding other currencies. But the metal is still on track for its biggest weekly gain since 7 May, after US consumer prices recorded their sharpest jump in over 30 years last month. "Until supply chains open up, there's going to be continued price pressure and this should support gold," said Stephen Innes, managing partner at SPI Asset Management. The sharp rise in inflation also prompted investors to boost bets that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates sooner than expected. Gold prices can rise for a while as prolonged supply chain issues might lead to longer-lasting inflation, and interest rate hikes may not keep pace with it, Innes said, adding that a rate-hike cycle should ultimately push bullion lower. Higher interest rates increase the non-yielding metal's opportunity cost. Gold should trend lower than $1,850 in the short term as the positive sentiment from the Fed's gradual tapering and additional flow of stimulus funds wears off, said Michael Langford, a director at corporate advisory AirGuide.

The rupee surged 16 paise to 74.36 against the US dollar in opening trade on Friday as a positive trend in domestic equities supported the local unit.

UN climate talks headed towards a rocky conclusion Friday after two weeks of fraught debate failed to resolve several key disputes or produce the emissions cutting plans needed to limit global warming to 1.5C. "The world is watching us", COP26 President Alok Sharma told delegates charged with keeping the Paris Agreement temperature goals alive even as climate-driven disasters hit countries the world over. The summit began with a bang as world leaders descended on Glasgow armed with a string of headline announcements, from a commitment to slash methane emissions to a plan to save the rain forests. But progress has stalled in the underlying technical and now minister-level negotiations.

Dollar hits 16-month high, stocks rebound after inflation scare
The dollar rose on Thursday, hitting a 16-month high a day after the strongest US inflation reading in more than three decades, while equities rebounded on expectations higher consumer prices will help corporate growth. The UK's blue-chip stock index rose to 20-month highs as China-exposed miners listed in London bounced on relief that property developer China Evergrande averted a default. European shares advanced after Goldman Sachs said regional earnings have been resilient to supply chain snags, a message that echoed on Wall Street as investors viewed the impact on rising prices as temporary but positive for corporate profits. The CPI index posted its biggest monthly gain in four months to lift the annual increase in inflation to 6.2%, the strongest year-on-year advance since November 1990. The dollar pushed the euro below $1.15, leaving the next major chart support level down at $1.12. European stocks moved higher, sensing the potential for a competitive boost. MSCI's all-country world index closed up 0.07% as Wall Street pared gains at the close. The broad STOXX Europe 600 index rose 0.32% to end at a record closing high. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average slid 0.44%, while the Nasdaq Composite advanced 0.52% and the S&P 500 added 0.06%, almost turning negative at the bell. Gold prices neared five-month highs they touched the previous session as investors have sought inflation hedges. Gold jumped to a five-month high of $1,868.20 overnight before easing a bit on Thursday. Oil rose above $83 a barrel before easing a bit as the market grappled with a stronger dollar and concerns about faster U.S. inflation after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries cut its 2021 oil demand forecast due to high prices. Brent crude settled up 23 cents at $82.87 a barrel. US crude rose 25 cents to settle at $81.59 a barrel. Bitcoin hit a fresh record at $69,000 before dipping back to trade about 0.19% higher around $65,046.30.

Treasuries drop on inflation worry; Asia stocks up
US Treasuries extended a selloff Friday on concern about high inflation and the prospect of faster monetary-policy tightening. Asian stocks rose amid a climb in Chinese technology stocks. Five-year notes led the decline in Treasuries when trading resumed following a holiday. The spread between the five-year and 30-year yields shrank, at one point to the narrowest since March last year. Bonds suffered a rout Wednesday after data showed the fastest US inflation in three decades.
Shares in Japan and Hong Kong climbed, while China fluctuated. The view that the worst of Beijing’s regulatory blitz has passed helped sentiment. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd achieved record sales in its Singles’ Day shopping festival, while Didi Global Inc. is reportedly set to relaunch its apps as probes are completed. US equity futures pushed higher after the S&P 500 eked out a gain. The dollar held a rally in the wake of the inflation print and caution triggered by a US warning that Russia may be weighing a potential invasion of Ukraine. Oil and gold slipped, while bitcoin was steady. Global stocks are set for their first weekly drop since early October, hurt by signs that price pressures are broadening out beyond pandemic-related disruptions. But swings in equity indexes pale in comparison to bond market ructions, raising the question of whether stock investors are too sanguine.
S&P 500 futures advanced 0.2% as of 10:41 a.m. in Tokyo. The S&P 500 rose 0.1%
Nasdaq 100 futures rose 0.3%. The Nasdaq 100 climbed 0.3%
