Both Nifty and Bank Nifty showed buying pressure and tried to recover from yesterday’s fall. However, both indices couldn’t cross or close above their respective resistance levels or yesterday’s high. Indices are still under selling zones. So markets can turn bullish only after important levels are breached.
Nifty: The current swing of 19,600 can act as immediate support. And a major support to watch out for in Nifty is 19,500. A breakdown from these levels may give us targets of 19,400 and 19,350. Meanwhile, a major hurdle on the upside is 19,740 levels. A breakout from there could give us targets of 19,800 and 19,860 levels. A breach of 19,860 levels can indicate a reversal and markets to turn bullish again.
Nifty is moving in a flag and pole pattern. So a breakout can confirm the upward movement.
Bank Nifty: The immediate support to look out for is near the round levels of 44,500. A breakdown from these levels may take the index to 44,350 and 44,200 levels. The important resistance is near today’s high of 44,780-800. A breakout could give us targets of 44,900 and 45,000. More importantly, 45,200 has to be crossed for a trend reversal.
Bank Nifty has been moving in a channel, and the channel high may be respected!
