Markets Ahead

NIFTY near 18,000 round level and Bank Nifty near 41,500 can act as good psychological as well technical support. Bank Nifty gave a break out of the long consolidation zone and level of 41,700 and Nifty close above 18,000 is a good sign.

For a further up move, NIFTY has to break out of the 18,200 crucial resistance and Bank Nifty has to cross the 42,000 resistance zone, then bullishness can be confirmed and a further up move can be expected.
