All the factors combined indicate a flat opening in the market.
NIFTY has support at 19,617, 19,566, 19,530 and 19,438. We can expect resistances at 19,617, 19,658, and 19,720.

U.S. markets had a highly volatile day again but closed in the red again. Futures are in the green, there is a higher chance for our markets to open flat.
NIFTY technicals indicate consolidation with a bearish bias. There are once again heavy call sellers in the market.
Bank Nifty put sellers had exited positions even with the afternoon rally. This gives some breathing space for the index on the lower side. However, there are 4 lakh call contracts at 45,000. If the 45,100 is crossed, I expect a good rally in the index as FIIs have returned as buyers.
NIFTY’s technical data is indicating bullishness, with a strong green candle yesterday. We will need to watch 19,650.
RBI Interest Rate Decision Today:
All eyes will be on the RBI Monetary Policy decision to be announced at 10 AM today by Shaktikanta Das. Expect some volatility around the time of the announcements.
2 factors will play out today: increased vegetable inflation and surplus liquidity in the banking system reaching a 14-month high(this leads to high inflation). But the expectation is that RBI will keep interest rate the same for now.
Just like we expected, Wednesday’s trading session was a dhamaka. Today, it would be best to trade with levels and your strategy with strict stop-losses, rather than trying to predict where the market will go.
