Nifty is near its major resistance zone of 17,800. If that level is crossed tomorrow, we can expect the index to move further up. But if breaches the previous swing of 17,750 and moves down, we can expect NIFTY to move down.
Bank Nifty took a good rejection from 42,800 levels and has been moving in a range. A breakout or breakdown on either side can give us a good move tomorrow!
