Nifty: The immediate support for Nifty will be 19,300, and immediate resistance will be 19,360 levels. A breakout from here could give us a target of 19,420, and a breakdown can give us targets of 19,240 and 19,100, eventually.
Bank Nifty: The make-or-break level will be 44,500 as the index closed exactly there. A gap down could take the index to 44,430 and 44,350 on the downside. Meanwhile, 44,670 and 44,750 levels can be watched on the upside.
Fin Nifty: The index had a very calm day as the index consolidated throughout the day within the 50-point range (near 19,800). So it was an easy day for option sellers today.
