What to Expect?
NIFTY opened with a huge gap-down at 17,204 but the bulls came in and took the index higher. There was a pull-back to 17,280 and the up-move continued. A close above 17,330 was crucial for the bulls.

BANK NIFTY opened with a gap-down at 38,200. Though there was buying, 38,350 acted as a strong resistance. BNF closed the day at 38,277, down by 710 points or 1.82%.

Looking at the global cues, there is no recovery in the west but Japanese markets are trading higher. Let us see if our markets also can move higher. But, the selling pressure on highs will be more than what the bulls can manage.
Reliance AGM took place yesterday and the key points to note are:
Jio 5G will roll out in major cities by Diwali.
Jio Airfiber, a high speed hotspot device will be launched.
JioCloud PCs will be launched.
Reliance will bring affordable 5G smartphones by working with Google.
Reliance Retail will launch FMCG Business.
There was no mention of Jio IPO. It will be discussed during the meeting next year.
Let us see how Reliance performs today.
German electricity prices have hit a record high. Keep in mind that it is winter to come. This is pointing out at a lower probability for the German markets to break the high soon. Even when all the markets were rallying recently, DAX did not give a clean up-move.
There will be a higher premium decay today as tomorrow is a holiday on account of Ganesh Chaturthi.
The IT index has broken the swing point of 28,500. Let us watch 27,400 now. For NIFTY, it will be hard to regain the momentum because it could not give an impulsive up-move after the pull-back due to global negativity. That takes it to down-trend where the participants will be on sell-on-rise mode.
I will be watching 17,280 on the downside and 17,500 on the upside.
