U.S. equities finished mostly higher to kick off May, despite some economic data suggesting that “crazy” prices and rampant shortages of parts, materials and labor could threaten the rebound in manufacturing.
The manufacturing index from the Institute for Supply Management fell to 60.7% in April from a 38-year high of 64.7% in the prior month. The Treasury Department said on Monday that it expects to ratchet up its borrowing to $463 billion in the April-June quarter, which is $368 billion higher than previously estimated.

Daily Technical View on Nifty
After showing sharp weakness on Friday, Nifty witnessed sustainable upside bounce on Monday and closed the day on a flat note. After opening with a downside gap of 150 points on Monday, Nifty shifted into an upside recovery in the early part of the session. The gradual upside recovery has continued for the whole session and Nifty closed near the highs. The opening downside gap has been filled completely.
A reasonable positive candle was formed with minor upper and lower shadow. Technically, this pattern indicate a comeback of bulls from the lower levels.
This could bring hopes for upside bounce from here and the day's low of 14416 could be considered as a new higher bottom formation (need confirmation). A sustainable follow-through up move could open more upside towards 14900- 15000 levels in the near term
Any confirmation of higher bottom could result in Nifty challenging the upper range of 15000 levels for the second time. Such repeated testing of the hurdle could eventually result in an upside breakout of the broader high low range.
Conclusion: The weakness of the last few sessions seems to have completed. The display of sustainable upside recovery signal more upside in the coming sessions and the crucial upper levels of 14900-15000 could be tested again in the next one week. Immediate support is placed at 14530 and further upside from here could find next upside resistance around 14750.
