Nifty is continuing its journey inside the uptrend channel. I will be watching 18k as the immediate support, even if it's broken 17,800 would act as strong support.
Bank Nifty has given up 41,200 support and it's a small concern. Fin Nifty is still in a stable position and 18,450 is expected to act as a good support.
Reliance again closed near the resistance trendline and HDFC Bank has formed a flag-like pattern (not a perfect one). A flag breakout might have momentum but might not sustain for a longer time.
