India's GDP data will be released today. Also, we have Jerome Powell's speech tomorrow.
As we discussed yesterday, I am still expecting Nifty to face resistance in the 18,820-930 zone. Also, the market is nearing the overbought zone, so there might be a profit booking or pullback in the coming days.
Bank Nifty took an immediate resistance at its all-time high towards the day's end and this level should be watched along with the 42,900-43,000 zone.
