Markets took support from the lows created on Friday and gave a small retracement. As the markets were under huge selling pressure, there was not enough strength to see a quick up-move. But the indices are holding the low levels.
Nifty: The index has closed above the important resistance of 19,300. That level can now act as immediate support. But the major support will be the 19,240 zone. And if there’s a gap down or flat opening below 19,300, 19,240 levels will be tested again, and the index might even fall to 19,100 and 18,900 levels.
Meanwhile, the immediate resistance to look out for will be today’s high of 19,360. A breakout from there can give us targets of 19,420 and 19,475.
Bank Nifty: The index couldn’t close above 44,500, but the buying strength is still there. If there’s a gap-up opening or flat opening followed by an up-move, the index can move further up to 44,950 levels. In that case, the support zone to watch will be 44,500 levels. If there’s a gap down opening or negative movement after opening, BNF can fall to 44,200 levels (which was today’s swing and there's also a trendline support drawn from last week’s low).
Markets have not turned bullish completely and major resistance of 19,500 in Nifty and 45,000 in Bank Nifty have to be crossed to expect a reversal. Till then, the indices can be sold in every uptick.
Fin Nifty: Being Fin Nifty expiry tomorrow, the important support zone to watch is 19,500-520 levels. The important resistance is 19,900. A breakout from today’s high of 19,800 will take the index to 19,900 and eventually to 20,000 levels. A breakdown from 19,740 levels will take the index down to 19,600 levels and can be choppy in this zone.
