The market kept trading above 19,500 with ease yesterday. A green candle was formed in the daily charts.
But today, it looks like the market is in a mood to move down again. The U.S. markets have fallen, and the Asian markets are also in the red.
Since we are going into the weekend, most likely our market will not try to go against international cues.
But 19,500 is there as an important support nearby, and if that is held, then the market conditions will still be okay.
BANK NIFTY is much weaker and is near its low from May 2023. It will have to hold above 43,400 to maintain some strength over the weekend.
Some added volatility can be expected for the upcoming monthly expiry week, and also for the fact that multiple stocks are still pending to announce their quarterly results. ICICI Bank and Kotak Bank are coming out tomorrow.
And we will be entering fresh trades on NIFTY and BANK NIFTY today. Both expiries will be on Thursday. You can check out the marketfeed app or our website for trades!
