NIFTY opened the day at 17,680 with a gap-up of 86 points. The index was moving up after the opening and gained nearly 200 pts by 11 AM. But it faced a good sell-off at 17,800 resistance and moved down. NIFTY closed the day at 17,711, up by 117 points or 0.67%.
BANK NIFTY started the day at 41,418 with a gap-up of 167 pts. It initially moved up 250 points, took support near 41,670, and started to fall. BNF fell more than 410 points to 41,260 and then shot up in the last 30 mins to close at 41,350, up by 99 pts or 0.24%.

Now, we have a very crucial resistance to watch- 17,800. Also, 17,840,17,865 and 17,925 can be marked as immediate resistances. On the downside, keep an eye on 17,660, 17,630, 17,490 and 17,440 as intraday supports.
I don’t have any proper reason to consider the current recovery as a rally. It has a high chance of losing strength in the 17,800-880 zone.
Let's see how Nifty reacts near the upper band of the falling channel.
Mark two levels in Bank Nifty: 41,100 and 41,700. A breakout from the levels can bring some momentum.
