IndusInd Bank (+2.3%) was NIFTY50’s top gainer. Many brokerage firms have given an upside rating on the stock.
UPL (+2%) rose after the company’s promoters further increased their stake in the company, taking the total holding past 32% as of March 2023. This figure is the highest since Sept 2005.

It looks like the market is consolidating before a big movement. But I will strictly watch 16,880-17,115 as the expiry day range. You can mark two levels in Nifty-16,910 and 17,060.
In Bank Nifty 39,700-750 zones and 39,270 levels can act as major ones. Also, you can watch the trend lines marked here.
The market will be closed on Thursday on account of Ram Navami, so we will have weekly and monthly expiry tomorrow!
