The Indian stock market has been showing a consistent pattern lately. It opened with a gap-up and either continued to rise or remained steady for the last three trading sessions. The markets have now closed above significant Fibonacci levels – 50% at 19,300 in Nifty and 43,400 in Bank Nifty.
This suggests a potential shift in the market trend to bullishness. However, there's a concern regarding the increase in India VIX, which has risen by 2% despite the upward movement. So, it's important to be cautious in case the market experiences a downturn tomorrow.
Nifty: A breakout from 19,420 may take the index up to 19,500, which will be the next major resistance to watch out. Meanwhile, the immediate support for Nifty is near 19,360 levels. A breakdown from there could take Nifty down to 19,300 and 19,240 levels.
Bank Nifty: The major resistance for BNF is near 43,700 levels. A breakout from there might take the index up to 43,900 and 44,000 levels. On the other hand, the immediate support for the index is near the 43,500 round levels. A breakdown from there may take the index down to 43,300 and 43,000.
Key resistance levels are being breached mainly due to the gap-ups, and we haven't seen much intraday price action to reach our targets. As long as the market remains above these resistance levels, it may be a good strategy to buy on dips. However, if an unexpected gap-down occurs in the coming days, you may consider selling when the market rises.
