Sensex hit an all-time high (ATH) of 63,588.31 today, and Nifty is consolidating near its ATH. Now, the major resistance for Nifty will be 18,880-900 levels. If those levels are breached, we can expect the index to move even higher to the 19,000 round levels. The support levels for NIFTY are 18,800, where a long-term trendline and previous swing meet. If this support is broken, the index may fall further.
Bank Nifty is stuck in the same consolidation zone of 43,350 and 44,200. Now, the important resistance for the index could be 43,950 and 44,000 zones and supports can be watched out near 43,750 (previous swing).
Being an expiry tomorrow, if the market opens flat or gaps up, and if the resistance zones are breached, we can expect both indices to move further up. But if there’s a gap down, the markets can go into a consolidation mode as sellers will try to bring the market down and buyers will try to hold the levels.
