A thrilling expiry!
Do you remember Nifty’s resistance trendline, connecting the highs of last October, January, and April? Here, we are assuming that the breakouts in August and September as false ones. And also the major horizontal resistance at 17,600.
Considering the above factors, we will be watching the 17,600-800 zone as a crucial one. Today’s movements have confirmed the significance of three levels- 17,420, 17,480 and 17,530.
Even though Bank Nifty fell below 40k multiple times, the 40,000-39,900 zone acted as good support. I will be watching 40,140-40,200 as an immediate resistance zone. Bank Nifty underperformed Nifty most of the time.
For the last many days, we have been tracking global markets, but not fully depending on them, indicating some strength in the market.
HDFC Bank consolidated in an 8 pts region today, really interesting.
Reliance took multiple supports from the 2500 zone, and this level is significant for tomorrow considering its Q2 result announcements. Also, watch the 2,550 regions along with its long-term resistance line.
