Do you remember those days when we all considered Nifty as less volatile?
Nifty was in an uptrend till 11 am and then it created a downtrend in the next two hours. Interestingly, during all the India VIX was so calm and closed just 1.9% down. As we discussed earlier Nifty is highly unpredictable now and has momentum on both sides.
Talking about Bank Nifty it looks like the index has strong support in the pre- Covid high near the 32,650 regions. We should be watching for a good weekly green candle from there to get some relief.
Vedanta is trading at the 220 region which has been acting as a major level since 2008. Keep a watch on the stock.
In the daily candle, Nifty is giving some positivity around the 15,350 region and RSI indicator is also supporting this. We may see some greenery in the near term, but don't forget, ‘sell on rise’ is not yet over.
