With today being the monthly expiry, you can expect some more volatility. The current expectation is definitely that there would be more downside till 19,000 in NIFTY.
NIFTY was in a crazy bull rally during July when it was in this zone. So the support levels have a lot of gaps between them. Falls and bounces might be quick, so keep that in mind!
Axis Bank reported a net profit of Rs 5864 crore for the July-September FY24 quarter, a 10% YoY jump and better than street estimates. Meanwhile, TechM profits fell heavily to 62% YoY.
The Asian markets are continuing to move down after opening in red. With this expectation of a gap-down, how NIFTY behaves at 19,000 will be crucial. If that level is broken, the nearby major support will be the 200-day EMA at 18,850.
