It was an absolute flat day for NIFTY. However, there was bearishness as the index opened higher. We will have to see if the move gets a follow-up.
Looking at Bank Nifty, you can see that there was a wedge formed in the day-chart. And look at where the bearish engulfing candle has been formed. It is exactly at the top. The bears wanted to stop the trendline breakout at any cost. Are we going to get another red today?
Dow Jones index continues to face resistance at the level we discussed earlier. The results season helped in the up-move of the IT stocks and that had a repercussion in the Indian market as well.
18,085 is the previous swing-low of Nifty in the hour-chart. So, the bulls will try to protect the level on this expiry day and the bears will be cautious in the zone 18,150-18,200.
Economic data came out yesterday from the US and Europe but they did not have a major impact on the markets.
It is important to wait today and get the direction before one enters aggressive trades as the market looks confused now.
I will watch 18,085 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,175 can be watched on the upside.
