The US markets protected the low of the previous red candle yesterday. The bulls will have to take a close above the high of the candle because if selling pressure succeeds in having a close below the low, 28,700 is a possibility. Once this major level is broken, it can be a free fall.
With global markets turning positive, we will see a gap-up. We have to see what 17,430 would do to NIFTY. This was the breakout level we have been watching for the last two weeks. Even if the gap-up does not sustain, bulls do not want a big negative close today, say below 17,350 or 17,300.
FINNIFTY will be in focus as it is Tuesday. There was a gap to be filled and that will be filled at 17,950. We may see a gap-up above the level. There is a chance for an opening above 18K as well.
NIFTY made a high on 13th September and the reversal started. 17,530 was the first point of bounce and hence, this level will be important.
Remember the last-hour sell-off last Tuesday. FINNIFTY expiries can be volatile towards the end even otherwise. So, take extra care when you close your intraday positions.
Keep an eye on US industrial data coming out in the evening.
I will be watching 17,530 on the upside and 17,350 on the downside.
