It looks like it was a retest yesterday. Today’s red-day candle engulfed yesterday’s green candle body and there is a higher chance that the fall would continue.
If Nifty breaks 17,800 we can expect the index to near the support of 17,500. And also very super strong support can be expected below 17,200 if all these levels are broken.
Bank Nifty is not looking good and an immediate stop can be expected at around 41,500. The 39,700-40,000 region will be able to provide strong support this week.
The numbers below estimates from TCS have brought a lot of negativity and also keep an eye on Infy as the results will be out this Thursday. If Infy’s numbers are bad, there would be a blood bath in Nifty IT.
Reliance made a double-bottom breakout yesterday. I am not sure if today’s fall is just a retest or not. The 2520-2535 zone will give the answers to this.
HDFC and HDFC Bank are breaking their consolidation. It will be better to avoid these stocks for a few more days.
India and US inflation data will be this Thursday, only after market hours.
