Markets gave a strong closing on a weekly time frame. Looking at the daily timeframe, there is a retracement of 38% in the Fibonacci levels for Bank Nifty. However, it's important to note that this retracement is for the uptrend from 42,100 levels. When examining the same retracement levels from 46,300 levels, it coincides with the 50% rejection zone. This suggests a bearish sentiment on an even larger time frame.
On the other hand, Nifty looks stronger than Bank Nifty, and no retracement was observed. So if Bank Nifty shows weakness, there is a possibility that Nifty might experience a slight dip as well.
Nifty: The key support levels for the index are at 19,600 and 19,500. If there's a breakdown from 19,630, potential targets could be 19,500 and 19,400. On the other hand, the major resistance level to monitor is around 19,860. A breakout from there might set a target of 20,000.
Bank Nifty: A vital support level to monitor is around 43,400. A breakdown from this level could confirm short-term bearishness, with potential downside targets at 43,000 and 42,500. On the other hand, significant resistance is evident near 44,800, while the immediate resistance lies at 44,000. A breakout from there could cause the index to rise to 44,400 and 44,800.
The Indian stock market displayed a mixed performance today, marked by a decline in financial stocks as RBI tightened consumer lending rules. Meanwhile, global markets have been strong due to the easing U.S. interest rate outlook and a decline in oil prices.
