Soft at start!

Do not be too hard, lest you be broken; do not be too soft, lest you be squeezed. - Abi Talib.

After yet another resilient show, market participants will be tested this week, as the RBI has left the door open for further tightening. The start today looks a bit soft due to weakness across Asian markets. Japanese market is shut for a holiday. US stock futures are in the red.
