As said in yesterday’s report, Nifty has created a breakaway gap and given confirmation. The 18,575 zone is acting as good support and 18,650 zone is acting as resistance. If there is a breakout from this consolidation zone, we can expect Nifty to hit 16,800 in the coming days, and if it breaks down, the gap created near 18,480 can be filled.
Bank Nifty is consolidating near its all-time high (ATH), and the round level of 44,500 is acting as a resistance zone. Meanwhile, 44,200 is acting as a support zone. A breakout on the upside can push Bank Nifty another 400-500 points as it’s at ATH, and there are no specific resistances to look at that round-level psychological zones. On the downside, if the index breaks down, we can expect an immediate target of 44,000 and a further down-move to 43,750.
Keep in mind that Germany’s inflation data will be out tomorrow. The country has slipped into recession after two consecutive quarters of negative growth.
