Nifty and Bank Nifty are clearly bullish as we’ve been mentioning in the previous post-market reports. The targets of 19,800 in Nifty and the ATH of Bank Nifty were hit today and the indices moved according to our analysis.
Both indices have rallied without giving much of a retracement, and every dip is getting bought. But looking at the fall from their respective all-time highs, Nifty and Bank Nifty might come under some selling pressure if there’s a follow-up tomorrow.
Nifty: The major support for Nifty will now be 19,700 zones (which was today’s low) and the major resistance will be the 19,750-780 zones, where the index faced multiple rejections. The next major resistance will be the 19,820 zone. So a breakout from 19,750-780 with a re-test may give a first target of 19,820 and then 19,840 eventually (which is also a pivot level).
Bank Nifty: The index is now at a support zone near 45,300-350. If support is being taken from here, we can expect Bank Nifty to move up to 45,560 zones and then eventually to 45,850 zones (which is near an all-time high and that can act as a major resistance).
Fin Nifty was as volatile as Bank Nifty today! Every 5min candle movement was huge— causing trouble to both option buyers and option sellers. In this kind of choppy expiries, money management and following proper rules will be the biggest weapon for traders.
