Great day, I would say.
Last week, we saw some gap-up openings in Nifty. But today, it was of a perfect bullish trending day. Nifty and Bank Nifty opened in the red, then broke multiple resistance and moved up with consolidations in between. Days like these are expected to sustain in the coming days.
Nifty has closed above 17,300 for the second time in 10 days. But it will have to break 17,450-500 resistance to set a bullish trend.
Bank Nifty is just 80 pts away from 40k, isn't that amazing? But I want Bank Nifty to hit 40k without the help of a gap-up opening. It looks like HDFC Bank is going to be the game changer in the coming days if the 1450-60 resistance is broken.
Fin Nifty closed above 17,900 resistance and if it can sustain tomorrow’s expiry without major losses, we would see Fin Nifty above 18k this week itself.
After creating an intraday trendline, Reliance closed near Friday's high. Added 2420 resistance to the watchlist.
ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Kotak Bank and SBI ended the day with strength.
