The indices have become extremely volatile ahead of monthly expiry— making wild moves on the upside and downside. The resistance levels were respected, and the indices have come down. This indicates that the selling pressure in the markets could continue.
Nifty: The immediate resistance to watch out for is near 19,730 levels. A breakout from this level can give us a target of 19,800 on the upside. The immediate support is near today’s low (19,600 levels). A breakdown from there can make the index fall to 19,500.
Bank Nifty: The immediate support to look out for is near 44,600. A breakdown from this level can give us a target of 44,300. On the other hand, a major resistance for BNF is near 45,000. A breakout from this round level can give us a target of 45,200.
As per reports, investors are confused as major central banks are sending mixed signals. Last week, the U.S. Federal Reserve said it's not raising interest rates for now but might do so later this year. Meanwhile, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Bank of England (BoE) suggested they might not raise rates further.
If the US Fed keeps rates high for too long, it could harm the US economy's chances of a soft landing (a gradual, relatively painless economic slowdown). And that could affect economies worldwide.
