We were not sure about what would happen if Bank Nifty hit fresh highs. After the initial jump, there was no buying pressure in the index and it was an indication of profit booking.
But the index is still strong. The close is not just above 40k, it's above 41k, very interesting! 40k, 40,300, 40,850, and 41k are considered immediate supports.
Nifty closed below 17,900 and it is not great. But the index took multiple supports from the 17,870 level and also we are expecting 17,700-800 as a very major support. Nifty will be back above 18k if Bank Nifty regains its momentum above 41,000.
HDFC Bank took support from 1512 and closed above 1515. This is a bit positive and we can add 1515,1500 1528 and1540 as major levels.
