In yesterday's post-market analysis, we clearly stated that the indices are experiencing selling pressure, and we anticipate a directional move on monthly expiry.
A huge gap-up was formed in our markets because of the US Federal Reserve’s interest rate decision. But immediately after opening, the gap was sold into— indicating that markets are now under selling pressure.
Nifty: The major support for Nifty will be the round level of 19,600, and the major resistance will be 19,700. A breakdown from these levels can give us a target of 19,560 and 19,520. A breakout from 19,700 can give us a target of 19,750 and 19,840 eventually.
Bank Nifty: The index is in a very broad range between 45,600 and 46,200, and can be volatile in this region. Currently, the index is at the bottom support zone of 45,600. If there is a breakdown on the downside, the index can give us a target of 45,300 and 45,000. If it moves up back into the zone, 46,000 can be watched as the target and the first resistance.
