What do you think about the market condition? Has Nifty reached the target?
For some days our market is moving up along with other global markets. But the market couldn't regain investor-trader confidence completely. That's why major gap-ups are not sustaining.
Nifty Metal is a perfect example of this. Many metal stocks including Vedanta and Jindal Steel are at good supports. But the index is moving up and down.
It will be good for the market to consolidate here for a few days before moving up.
15,930, 16,000, and 16,170 are very crucial resistances for Nifty and if they are strongly broken we will have a trend confirmation.
On the Bank Nifty side, a day candle close above 34,100 will give more clarity.
Reliance has been weak for many days and is trading with lesser volume compared to the same month of 2020 and 2021.
Even though Nifty IT closed 2% up, the index is struggling at the 28,400 level. But we may see it above 30,100, who knows!
