GIFT NIFTY is trading in the red at 19,394.
All the factors combined indicate a gap-down opening in the market.

INDIA VIX is at 11.99, and looking to move up which could indicate a fall loading in the market. The VIX in the U.S market is also up.
The U.S. market has broken a consolidation zone and moved down yesterday night. This will contribute to initial weakness in our market and possible selling from FIIs.
NIFTY has the next important support at 19,240. It is a very strong buying zone as demonstrated on Monday.
If that level is broken, a quick fall to 19,200 can be expected to fill the gap in daily charts.
For the day, if a gap-down is seen and buying from there, it will indicate some short sellers booking profits. I would not go bullish until at least Monday’s high is broken.
BANK NIFTY has a good support level at 43,680 on the daily charts. Do keep this level in mind while trading.
The last 2 days before the weekly expiry. Hope you have safe and easy trades like FinNIFTY on Tuesday! Even with consolidation or movement, expected moves can still give profits.
Have a safe trading day!
