Nifty formed a very bearish candle today and broke two recent major swing lows. 47 of 50 Nifty stocks closed in the red.
I am seeing major support at Nifty’s 16,810 and remaining support near 16,740, 16,630 and 16,400.
Also, we can mark 38,000 as the major support for Bank Nifty. I am expecting 39,100 to act as a good intraday support
