Looking at the global markets, there are mixed cues with FTSE closing flat and the US markets remaining shut on account of Labour day. You can see volatility in NIKKEI now. A flat opening and a rally will be very good for our markets, especially BANK NIFTY. 40K once broken can lead to a huge rally. The day chart clearly shows a swing high break!
FIIs were sellers again yesterday though the net sell value is low. We need the support of FIIs to have a sustained rally as we had recently.

The initial price action will be very important as BNF is at a crucial breakout zone.
I will be watching 17,620 on the downside and 17,700 on the upside.
