Weekly Expiry and Election Results Day!
Election results didn't affect the market and it became a non-event.
Bank Nifty has been consolidating in a tight range and made a triangular breakout today.
The market is having a fear of profit booking and I am expecting it to happen before Bank Nifty hit 44,500.
Quoting a comment from one of my colleagues during 2021 end, “ Market falls when no one expects”.
It is good to see Nifty IT taking support from the 30k level and let's watch IT stocks in the coming days.
Reliance has made a good correction, keep an eye on the 2640 support.
HDFC Bank is continuing the consolidation, but it has broken the 1612 resistance.
