Major Asian markets except for China closed in the green. China's market moved down due to the fear of an inflation jump in the coming months. European markets are trading flat to red.

For the last three days, Nifty has been trading in a very tight range of nearly 200 pts. Market continuing sideways and profit booking happening simultaneously is a very good thing. We can still watch out for 17,200 and 17450-500 supports.
Nifty has formed a red weekly candle for the first time in six weeks. We can expect sideways movement with a lot of volatility next week.
This is the second day of Bank Nifty’s closing below 39,000. Both Nifty and Bank Nifty are failing to sustain the gap-up opening. For now, let's forget about the previous day’s close and focus on a strong up move from the opening levels.
The selling in Nifty IT is very strong right now and should take some rest near 28,400.
